Update: I fly to Berlin tomorrow.
I’ll try to keep this short because we’ve written enough novels in the past week. Tomorrow, I will be flying to Berlin and serve as the Head Coach of Werlyb, the new jungler, Godbro, HolyPhoenix and Je Suis Kaas for the remainder of the EUCS season and Promotion Tournament (assuming we can make it that far.)
My reasons are doing this are simple: The players asked me to come back. Ultimately me leaving and not doing anything will hurt Behdad, but it will also screw the players out of their shot at making LCS and I cannot standby and watch that happen. I still think Behdad isn't a nice person and will never work for him, which is why I will not be signing any contract or NDA.
If you’ve read their public statements, then you will know Dentist and Kamikaz are not in great financial situations at the moment. Part of the reason I’m coming back is because I am going to be paid upfront before beginning work. I will be sending this money to Karl and Kami to help them because they were never paid by Behdad and needed the salaries from him far more than me. So Lucas, thank you for finally paying the staff. Worst case situation is I don’t receive my payment by Thursday. If that happens, I will enjoy my vacation in Berlin.
I’m not sure how wise it is to put everything so publicly but I want to remain transparent with my supporters. I have no idea what is going to happen after this split, however I do know that when I look back in a few years, I’ll be able to say that when my players needed me, I did everything in my power to help them succeed and that I took care of the people who gave me a chance to prove that I was still good at coaching the game I love.
