Good Luck Rookie
Today we say goodbye to Pierre “rookie” Halajian, who has coached the Flames Shieldmaidens since Spring.
While rookie has been a big part in helping the girls develop as players and as a team, we have decided to go in a different direction.
In August, as we played in the 2nd and final qualifier for ESL Impact; rookie’s username was found in Twitch chat of our stream and we were disqualified from participating. While we believe there was no ill intent, and this has been clarified with and accepted by ESL Impacts admins since – it was a huge blow to all of us, since ESL Impact was a big part of our goals for the team. Together with the team, we decided on a trial period to see if we could rebuild the trust needed to succeed. In the end, we have chosen to go down a different path for our Shieldmaidens.
We wish rookie the best of luck in the future, we have appreciated your work while with us!
As for the Shieldmaidens – stay tuned 👀
