Less than a week after joining the Kansas City Pioneers, the team has found a permanent coach in Sean "ashen" Yang.
We are proud to welcome @ashen_cs to the Pioneers as the head coach of our CS:GO roster.— Kansas City Pioneers (@PioneersGG_) August 5, 2019
Along with hours of practice, we hope Ashen’s perspective of the game can help our team rise to the top of MDL.
Originally, Mark "markalodon" Rose was on trial as the team's coach, however Dust2.us has learned that he had too many time constraints and was unable to continue as a result. Taking his place is ashen who most recently played in ESEA Advanced Season 31 with SODMG, he is also the former coach of both Holo and ex-Velocity.
The Kansas City Pioneers participated in the third ESEA Proving Grounds qualifier this past weekend with the help of Jarod "Douglas" Onorato and ashen in the coach role, but were unfortunately unable to qualify, losing to New Identity in the semifinals.
The Kansas City Pioneers roster now looks like this:
- Joshua "Hunter" Madore
- Alex "zander" Diaz
- Erik "bul" Penny
- David "Sneaky" Polster
- Sean "ashen" Yang (Coach)
The next time we see the Pioneers play will be at the MSI MGA Closed Qualifier on August 10th.
