Peacemaker leaves NRG CS:GO

Esports Asia News
Just weeks after signing ex-Team Liquid coach Luis “peacemaker” Tadeu as the team’s general manager, NRG’s CS:GO team have parted ways with the Brazilian vet, citing different visions. Slingshot Esports’s Jarek “DeKay” Lewis broke the story Friday, with NRG and peacemaker later confirming it in statements given to Slingshot and posted to social media. “Luis is an incredible talent with great insight,” NRG said in their statement to Slingshot. “Ultimately we had separate visions for the future of NRG esports as it relates to CS:GO and have decided to move in separate directions. Luis expressed interest in taking his vision and expertise elsewhere and we’ve come to an agreement to allow him to pursue other opportunities. We wish him the best in his future endeavors. Any organization will be lucky to have him.” “Building a team from scratch and dealing with multiple different players at the same certainly made our lives a bit harder,” peacemaker said in his own statement in a Twitlonger. “‘Know thy self’ I know I will never commit to something I truly don’t believe in, and during this process with NRG we found ourselves with a couple different visions concerning players and how we should move forward. It was a difficult decision, but I decided to step down and let NRG follow their vision without causing any drama or tension. Following your principles is never easy, but I believe in humility, grace and passion.” According to DeKay, the main point of contention between peacemaker and the org was that peacemaker wanted to mold the team into an NA roster while NRG wanted to keep it primarily German. Neither NRG nor peacemaker confirmed that was the case in their statements. peacemaker joined NRG on Nov. 18, almost a month after he parted ways with Team Liquid on Oct. 22. peacemaker said at the time that the move was the result of “few disagreements about business principles.” While with Liquid, he helped shape the roster into one of NA’s top CS:GO teams and led them to second place in ESL One: Cologne. At Cologne, Team Liquid became the first NA team to ever reach the Grand Final of a CS:GO Major. peacemaker says in his statement that while his current situation is dire, he is confident that he will be able to rise from the ashes next year. “I am not gonna lie, this is probably the worse chapter of my csgo career but I am hungry and really looking forward to my future in 2017,” he said. “I would like to thank NRG for understanding and respecting my decision and I wish them nothing but the best with their CSGO Roster.”
