Daps, a three-year veteran of the NRG squad, posted an explanation of the move to Pastebin, saying that his “current situation is uncertain” but that he is open to any offers “in any field,” leaving open the possibility of a coaching role in his future.
On the other hand, stanislaw was recently released by Complexity after a little over a year with the team. The Canadian IGL had previously spent time on Team Liquid after winning ELEAGUE Season 2 with OpTic Gaming.
