Renegades is expected to return to ESL Pro League Season 8 North America with two new players, according to multiple sources. The two front runners to join Renegades are Jay "liazz" Tregillgas from ORDER and Sean "Gratisfaction"' Kaiwai from Grayhound Gaming.
DBLTAP previously reported Renegades’ in-game leader and AWPer Noah "Nifty" Francis is expected to depart Renegades and join Team Envy in a new North American roster. It appears Norwegian rifler Joakim "jkaem" Myrbostad will also depart Renegades, leaving two open roster spots.
Liazz has been a member of multiple Australian organizations including Tainted Minds and Kings Gaming Club. Gratisfaction has had long stints with both Team Immunity and his current team, Grayhound. Although the deal hasn’t been finalized as of yet, there isn’t much time left to choose with Thursday’s roster lock.
Nifty would leave to join Team Envy's roster, which also includes Josh "jdm" Marzano, Kory "SEMPHIS" Friesen, Steve "reltuC" Cutler and Tayler "Drone" Johnson. It is unclear what would be next for jkaem.
Renegades did not initially respond to request for comment.
