With Limpone, New England Whalers peaked at seventh place in North America on HLTV's rankings
Linus "Limpone" Wecksell has stepped down from New England Whalers, marking the end of the Swedish coach's fifth-month tenure with the squad.
Stepped down from coaching @whalersgg. Timezone difference made it too hard with other obligations.— Linus Wecksell (@LimponeFPS) July 21, 2020
I'm proud of the players and their hard work climbing to #7 NA in our time together. I wish u well!

Limpone began coaching New England Whalers in mid-February, before being officially announced on April 18th. During his tenure with the squad, New England Whalers reached its highest level ever, notably clinching the first seed in ESEA MDL Season 34 regular season following an impressive 15-2 record.
However, after a strong finish to the regular season, the team unperformed in playoffs, falling to Mythic in the semifinals before being eliminated in a close series against Levitate. Outside of MDL, New England Whalers found moderate success, finishing third-to-fourth place in WINNERS League Invite Season 4.
With Limpone parting ways with the team, New England Whalers are now:
- Jonathan "djay" Dallal
- Brandon "BOOBIE" Roberts
- Josh "PwnAlone" Pigue
- Ramal "Rampage" Silva
- Ben "ben1337" Smith
With the player break beginning to wind down, New England Whalers will likely be on the lookout for a new coach ahead of the start of ESEA MDL Season 35 on August 31st.
