NLaeeR was revealed as part of the Reign's original roster in October of 2018. He joined the team after previously playing for Reign head coach Sephy on the team Last Night's Leftovers in Contenders 2018.
He played in 15 matches for the Reign this season, including all seven matches in Stage 4. NLaeeR began the season as a part of a DPS rotation that included Dafran and ErsTer and later included BABYBAY after Dafran retired.
The Reign released Daco yesterday, who was also on a team option. The Reign still have six players subject to team options.
NLaeeR was the last Russian player still on a team's roster prior to his release. The only other Russian player to play in the 2019 season, ShaDowBurn, was released in October.
