“The change was made because I’m getting another visa, I’m still in Brazil, and the split has already started”, explained the coach to the ge.
“Rigby did very well in the last split, and this is his last split before going to the Army in Korea. Therefore, we thought it logical to make this change. As a remote head coach, it is difficult to have control of everything that is happening”, he adds to the website.
As Head Coach, Turtle participated in EG’s campaign to win the first split of LCS 2022. He followed along with the team to MSI 2022, winning T1 on the same day as his birthday.
