NRG have brought in Lilman in place of marke on the team. Lilman will at least play out the remainder of the ECS and the ESEA seasons.
Marke has been a part of the team since last year. However following the departure of the core of the team ( at that time) with Gob B and others moving on to form their own Team named BIG. The recent tournaments have been equally bad for Team NRG as they have failed to qualify for several ( or any ) of the LAN tournaments

It was the final straw in an otherwise really uninspiring performance for the team management who decided it was time to change things up within the team.

“We gave MarKE a shot at the start of the year to see how he could develop as a player on his first Pro League team. While his individual aim is very good, his inexperience in other areas of his game was too great to continue on.” daps told HLTV.org.
“We knew our comms were fairly poor online, but our failure at Copenhagen Games was even more of a reality check. A lot of our players relied too heavily on Professor_Chaos communicating for them online and we realized we needed a player with experience and good team attributes to begin improving more. LILMAN has a good competitive mindset and will be our 5th moving on and fill that entry role alongside Brehze.”
NRG’s roster now is:
Damian “daps” Steele
Jacob “FugLy” Medina
Peter “ptr” Gurney
Vincent “Brehze” Cayonte
Derrick “LILMAN” Boyne (trial)
Andrew “Professor_Chaos” Heintz (coach)
Edgar “MarkE” Jimenez (backup)
