Corey "ruin" Hartog's time coaching Swole Patrol came to an abrupt end a few days ago after strife between the team and their out-of-game tactician came to a boiling point.
When reached for comment, ruin said he perceived the team's discontent with him stemmed from his overly negative criticism during their recent match against Rise Nation, and that perhaps he was overreaching in his efforts to get them out of their round deficit.
The sudden departure of ruin leaves Swole Patrol down a critical extra set of eyes moving forward. Additionally, it leaves ruin in a tough spot as the MDL season is well under way, and most EPL team's are spoken for at the coach position.
After the removal of ruin, the Swole Patrol roster is as follows:
- Samuel "SileNt" Portillo
- Jordan "Zellsis" Montemurro
- Ryan "freakazoid" Abadir
- Austin "Cooper-" Abadir
- Ryan "ryan" Welsh
Swole Patrol are currently 6-2 in MDL with a respectable fifth place ranking that they will look to defend this Thursday against Say No More. You can catch the action on ESEA's Twitch page where it will be broadcast live.
