Jonatan “Devilwalk” Lundberg, most prominently known for competing under the Fnatic brand, will step in as the OpTic Gaming coach. Confirmation came from Dap’s Twitter account, in which Damian stated, “Well it kind got leaked but to confirm Devilwalk will be our new coach going forward.”
Due to wrist problems, Devilwalk will assist the team with strategies, and help guide OpTic to grow as a team. Devilwalk’s experience with coaching started after he left Fnatic as a player, and helped the team during ESL One Katowice 2015.
With OpTic competing in Group 4 of the major, the pressure for OpTic to perform is at an all time high. The Canadian team will be competing against top tier teams, such as Na’Vi, Ninjas in Pyjamas, and Flipsid3.
