After a trial period during the Carbon Series, young talent ZachaREEE has decided to officially sign with Renegades. At just 16 years of age, he looks to compete as the youngest professional player in the scene and develop with the strong infrastructure that the Renegades brand brings.
In a press release, Renegades management noted ZachaREEE's overwhelmingly positive attitude and drive to improve as reasons he was signed. His Genji has been called incredibly strong by some opponents, and the team plans to flex him onto D.Va should the need arise, not unlike NiCO of Rogue.

The signing comes after the news of juv3nile's departure. Despite his status as a longtime teammate and shotcaller for the team, he announced via Twitter that he is now a free agent in search of a team. In order to round out the roster, ZachaREEE and the boys will need to find a new main tank. It remains unclear whether or not another teammate will pick up shotcalling duties.
As of now, the Renegades roster consists of only five members:
- Christopher "J3sus" Pavloff (DPS)
- Liam "Mangachu" Campbell (Flex)
- Zachary "ZachaREEE" Lombardo (Flex)
- Jeremy "Jer" Santacruz (Support)
- Jonathon "Sherlockey" Davis (Support)
