New Clashing Experience Today!

OpTic Gaming have decided against keeping Luis “peacemaker” Tadeu as coach following his trial period.

Luis “peacemaker” Tadeu joined OpTic on a trial basis at the start of February as the team looked to bounce back from the departure of ingame leader Peter “stanislaw” Jarguz to Liquid.

OpTic cut a frustrating figure at the two events they attended with the Brazilian on board, finishing 9th-12th at DreamHack Las Vegas and 11th-12th at the IEM World Championship.

peacemaker’s OpTic trial was unsuccessful

In the latest episode of OpTic’s “Vision” documentary series, Óscar “mixwell” Cañellas stated that peacemaker‘s approach did not match the team’s style, adding that the Brazilian was “too emotional sometimes”.

In a TwitLonger post, peacemaker admitted that the loss ofstanislaw and the rumours surrounding mixwell and Will “RUSH” Wierzba took their toll on the team and lamented that he was not given enough time to carry out his vision for the squad.

“After losing stanislaw, the team lost leadership and guidance, and internal problems started to happen with the defeats coming in,” Tadeu wrote.

“We tried to handle all this the best we could, but with all the rumours about mixwell/RUSH leaving to Liquid I felt the team completely lost motivation to continue working, so we barely practiced after Katowice.

“I have a very particular way of coaching my teams, and I may not be the best when it comes to dealing with a lot of problems, but I have my own system, which worked very well with my previous team but unfortunately did not work with OpTic.

“I feel I did not have enough time to show the guys what I am capable of, but in their eyes my coaching style does not match what they are looking for. This is completely acceptable and it was the main reason behind the trial period.

“I am heading back to Brazil to spend some time with my family. After that, I will be looking to continue my coaching career somewhere else, and hopefully that will happen in the near future.”

OpTic have yet to comment on the situation of Spencer “Hiko” Martin, who joined the team as a stand-in at the same time aspeacemaker. It has been rumoured that OpTic will not be retaining his services, but he played for the team in Thursday’s 0-2 defeat against CLG in the North American SL i-League StarSeries Season 3 qualifier.
