- Notes from rawryy's stream on 24th January 2020. Talking about the TSM PUBG roster change announcement.
- The announcement is here:
- Anything in quote marks "" is a quote from rawryy. Other things are summaries in my own words.
- # About rawryy stepping down from the team:
- It wasn't rawryy's first intention to change to the coach role. He'd prefer to stay as a player. "It happened in a way that had to happen for things to work."
- "We obviously set out replacing one player to begin with when Gustav left, but there were plans to replace two and then it became three in time."
- "The whole tryout process happened since early January. Late December we knew Gustav was leaving."
- rawryy being removed from the team happened in the last week. It was confirmed to him three of four days ago that he would no longer be on the roster.
- rawryy was asked if he would've wanted to be a player for another team instead, but said there weren't any available offers that were worth it because of the current nature of the PUBG esports scene.
- # About rawryy's new role as coach:
- They've not fully worked out all of rawryy's new role yet. He won't be 100% full time coaching the team, he'll have other roles within TSM and more time focused on his stream.
- "I will definitely be streaming more. I still enjoy playing PUBG, I'll still be streaming PUBG"
- "Me and Didz, we had a pretty good relationship in the last team. Throughout the year I was super interested in sports psychology, I worked with two sports psychologists throughout the year so I have some experience there and it's something to work on."
- "We don't need a strategic coach, it's more about teamwork and chemistry and things like that."
- # About Didz leaving TSM:
- "We did not drop Didz, he decided to leave. Didz was a really good coach for us. If we could've kept Didz, we would've. I'm obviously not a better coach than Didz or anything like that."
- "There definitely wasn't any good coaches available after Didz leaving. We didn't have an option to get any good coaches. I think there's only like two or three good coaches right now in PUBG. Didz was probably the best in my opinion."
- # About other players from the old team and the new team:
- "Salary was not the issue" for any players who left.
- Braexco is in as IGL. They looked for an IGL first. "Braexco was definitely the best one available. Braexco has always been a strong IGL."
- Asked about Fexx rawryy said "I haven't played with him at all. But he did pretty well in Phase 3 on a team that was struggling and got relegated. He seems to have a good attitude, people talk highly of him."
- "We trialled different people. I'm not going to say why we didn't pick up certain people, because it's just about who is the best fit for the team."
