Statement Edward ‚Edward‘ Abgaryan
This offseason was one of the hardest for me in terms of making a decision. I spent a couple weeks thinking about my situation non-stop with countless sleepless nights.
I received a lot of offers to continue playing and I still enjoyed playing. I realized that I could keep on playing as long as my passion for the game was there but I knew I had to take the next step in life and move forward. After leaving the EU LCS because of work visa issues in 2015, I joined LCL (Russian League) and played one year for Vega Squadron and one and a half years for Gambit Gaming. My role was the team captain and shotcaller for both teams. During that time, I took on a few coaching tasks and enjoyed talking with my teammates about the game to help them understand the game deeper and better. I could always see the result of my work and this influenced my decision to become a coach. I’m confident that I will be a good players coach one day. Thanks to Rogue I have the opportunity now to learn this new role and gain experience as an Assistant Coach.
I hope that all of my fans and people who followed my playing career will keep supporting me in my new role and will start cheering for my new team!
