Jonji made the decision to leave Bad News Bears after being relegated after the group stage of DreamHack Open September 2021. Recall that the 22-year-old Canadian has played for the team since the roster was founded in January 2021.
The decision came after the dismal conclusion of the DreamHack Open September 2021, which ended in a heartbreaking defeat after Bad News Bears lost to TeamOne in the Group A qualifier, making two comebacks along the way.
Despite winning Fragadelphia 15 a few weeks ago, the team's recent setbacks led Jonji to leave the team, taking the blame for the setbacks.
Jonji's departure will be a real blow to Bad News Bears, as the team will soon be playing in IEM Fall 2021 North America. Since the roster lists have already been confirmed, the team will have to compete with the coach in the tournament, losing 20% of the already earned RMR points along the way.
Recall that the team will perform in Group A together with Liquid, FURIA, 00Nation, EXTREMUM and Extra Salt. Bad News Bears is not expected to disband the lineup and will continue to perform internationally in the near future.
During his time in the camp of the team, Jonji won several tournaments from the ESEA Cash Cup: North America series, and also led his team to victory in ESEA Season 36: Premier Division - North America, thereby guaranteeing a trip to ESL Pro League Season 14.
From now on, the composition of Bad News Bears is as follows:
- junior (rent).
- madcow (trainer).
