Gen.G indications mCe as VALORANT coach, promotes Blank to GM|Dot Esports
Gen.G has settled its VALORANT branch with two brand-new relocations, inducing Matthew “mCe” Elmore as a coach and promoting Andrew “Blank” Leverette to basic supervisor, the company revealed today.
MCe, who’s best referred to as a CS: GO player and coach, is swapping games to take control of a roster that features Kenneth “koosta” Suen, Shawn “Shawn12590” O’Riley, Michael “MkaeL” De Luca, Danny “huynh” Huynh, and Anthony “gMd” Guimond.
” MCe brings significant knowledge on the mechanics of CS: GO which we think translates well to VALORANT,” Gen.G COO Arnold Hur said. “We have a young VALORANT team, and we’re positive mCe will shape our group effectively.”
After retiring as a player in 2018 after a stint with Dignitas, mCe bounced around between training functions, hanging out with Rogue, The Quest, and Chaos Esports Club. That Chaos team, which he coached from the start of 2020 to Jan. 1, was a strong lineup that handled to win multiple events, consisting of DreamHack Masters Winter 2020: The United States And Canada in December.
He most recently coached Problem Bears before making the jump to VALORANT and signing up with Gen.G.
” I am truly delighted to accept this new difficulty in my career and help develop this group into a powerhouse in VALORANT,” mCE said. “We have a strong young core of players who are devoted to bettering themselves and each other. I’m all set to get to work and see what we can do together and start winning for our #TigerNation.”
Blank invested most of 2020 with Gen.G as the team’s VALORANT coach and will now supervise the entire operation as the GM.
