Warriors International have replaced head coach Owen "SummY" Mustard with Donald "voo" Parkhurst.
Decided to pick up @voocsgo as our coach for the rest of the season. There's no question voo has a lot of knowledge when it comes to CS and we feel like he could be extremely beneficial for us in the long run. Super excited to start getting to work with him. (1/2)— walker (@walkero_o) May 24, 2020
Walker "walker" Harris told Dust2.us that the team made the decision to part ways with SummY as a result of a desire for a more experienced coach during the latter half of their first season of MDL. walker also mentioned the time difference as a factor in the move, as SummY was coaching them remotely from the United Kingdom.
SummY told Dust2.us that he plans on focusing on EU FPL-C and Rank G for the time being while also being on the lookout for a Main or Advanced lineup.
As for SummY's replacement, voo is a relatively fresh face to the world of coaching, having briefly coached TGS this season before stepping in as a stand-in. Therefore, his experience as a caster for ESEA and WINNERS League will need to be leveraged by Warriors International as they look to make playoffs in their debut season of MDL.
With voo taking over as coach, Warriors International are now:
- Brett "hyper" Rhein
- Daniel "bokumbop" Yoo
- Wyatt "Top^" Beakler
- Derek "Hendy" Hendrixson
- Walker "walker" Harris
- Donald "voo" Parkhurst (Coach)
- Colin "Koi" Thor (Assistant Coach/Analyst)
Warriors International are currently in sixth place in ESEA MDL Season 34 and are also currently competing in WINNERS League Season 4 Invite with one loss thus far against Chaos. Additionally, they are set to compete in Mythic Invite League Season 1, with the league's first matches set to commence on May 24th.
