Leaving Angry Titans and the future...— radioboiii (@radioboiii) June 5, 2019
Optidox will leave the EU scene to return to NA coaching, as he was recently announced as the new head coach of the Montreal Rebellion Montreal Rebellion Contenders NA Rank # . He joined Angry Titans as the team's head coach alongside analyst Wrath back in November.
radioboiii's departure from the team comes during personal financial struggles, as he explained in his Twitlonger post related to the matter. Additionally, he noted that in addition to his two part-time jobs that he was working, he was dissatisfied with "his personal level of support for [the] team" due to his aforementioned jobs.
Rounding out the team's departures is eMIL, who is also going overseas to compete in North American Contenders. Earlier today, he was revealed to be a part of the tank line for Gladiators Legion. He will fill in a vacancy left by Bischu, who joined the roster on a two-way contract after frd was signed to the Atlanta Reign shortly before that announcement.
As a result of their first place finish in the most recent Contenders season, Angry Titans have been automatically invited back for the next season of Contenders. A date for the start of Season 2 of Contenders 2019 Europe is currently unknown.
