The contracts existing between Renegades players and the Renegades organization are nearing expiration, according to multiple sources close to the team.
At this time, it is not expected that they will re-sign and have been exploring options with other organizations.
If the current players come to an agreement with another organization, it is not expected that Renegades will immediately sign another team to fill their place. One source said, they are considering leaving CS:GO entirely with no intention to return.
Renegades joined CS:GO in 2015 by signing the former Vox Eminor roster that featured current members Aaron “AZR” Ward and Justin “jks” Savage.
The Renegades players recently finished in the semifinals at the StarLadder Berlin Major, which is an improvement compared to their quarterfinal run at the IEM Katowice Major earlier in the year. The performance came as a surprise to many, having finished last place at ESL One: Cologne 2019 in July.
Renegades currently hold a spot in ESL Pro League Season 10, which would transfer with the players should they leave the organization and stick together.
According to information presented to Dexerto, ESL has presented certain teams with a term sheet that would require them to exit all other leagues longer than 14 days in length.
The current Renegades roster consits of:
- Aaron ‘AZR’ Ward
- Justin ‘jks’ Savage
- Joakim ‘jkaem’ Myrbostad
- Sean ‘Gratisfaction’ Kaiwai
- Jay ‘Liazz’ Tregillgas
