Jayzwalkingz reportedly joining Renegades on trial basis

Jayzwalkingz will reportedly join Renegades on a trial basis
Jayzwalkingz will reportedly join Renegades on a trial basis.

David “Jayzwalkingz” Kempner, a member of Fnatic Academy‘s Counter-Strike team, will join Renegades on a trial basis, according to a report from HLTV.

Jayzwalkingz would fill the spot left by Nemanja “nexa” Isaković, who joined Renegades on April 12 but was released Friday, only four months after he signed with the team. Jayzwalkingz has been a part of Fnatic Academy since February, when the team parted ways with Aleksandr “jayzaR” Zarkovic, who is now part of Polaris Gaming.

Since the addition of Jayzwalkingz, Fnatic Academy placed second at the China Cup I in March, and won the second open qualifier of the European Minor before placing sixth in the closed qualifier. Fnatic announced in May it would attempt to sell its Academy team, the result of a rule change that banned Academy teams from competing in ESL events (or qualifiers for events) in which the main team was participating. But the players are all still under the Fnatic banner.

The Swedish player is already listed as a member of Renegades on ESL’s website for the upcoming ESL Pro League season, and will make his first LAN appearance with his new team at DreamHack Masters Malmö next weekend. The rest of the Renegades roster consists of Aaron “AZR” Ward, Justin “jks” Savage, Karlo “USTILO” Pivac and Noah “Nifty” Francis.
