After Renegades marksman Ainslie “Maplestreet” Wyllie announced on twitter that he would be stepping down from the team, the organization announced that they would be holding open marksman tryouts to players who have reached Master tier or higher in their region’s Solo Queue ladder.

 

Maplestreet also tweeted that he intends to continue playing competitively:

 

 

This marks the third marksman shift in the team since it’s inception as Misfits in March. The others being Ritchie “Intense” and Mohammad “Jebus” Tokhi, who Maplestreet was filling in for due to Visa issues, eventually resulting in a delayed arrival. Renegades opted to use Maplestreet in the NACS Summer Finals where they edged out Team Coast 3-2, granting them a spot in the 2016 LCS Spring Split with an MVP performance from the Maplestreet.

Renegades released a statement on his departure and their search for a replacement:

 

We are forever thankful for the effort Maple put forth this summer as we made our way from a Challenger team to members of the League Championship Series (LCS). As an organization we wish him the best of luck as he pursues another opportunity to continue his career.

With anticipation of Maple’s departure, we have already started our search for our next marksman. And with our inaugural LCS season on the horizon, we intend to leave no stone unturned as we begin our worldwide search for an individual possessing the mechanical ability and intangibles we believe will help us win.

 

NoL will continue to provide updates to the Renegades roster as information becomes available.
