The former Renegades roster will be playing under the name Team ACCL for this weekend’s APAC Challengers Cup.

The team includes Luke “Louqa” Rigas, Lincoln “Fighta” Ferguson, Conrad “Shockz” Rymarek and Max “Restalling” Zlatanovic.

This roster has absolutely dominated the APAC Challengers scene this year. They’ve won every APAC Cup since February.

They all went to Minnesota as a unit to compete in the Open event that ran alongside Call of Duty League Major 2.

They placed 17-24th at the event, outperforming many of the top AMs from across the globe to register a decent finish.

Shockz and Louqa both have CDL experience. They were on the Paris Legion roster for a period during Modern Warfare (2019)’s Call of Duty season.

They know how to win and how to make an impact, and that is shown by their dominance of the APAC region.

Challengers Cup #11 is this weekend

The team will look to earn another chip in their pocket this weekend as they compete under the Team ACCL moniker.

This announcement comes in the same week that the ACCL announced “The ACCL Major League” an APAC equivalent to their Super League.

The ACCL have committed to provide opportunities for the APAC region. This is the latest one of those opportunities as they look to extend the publicity for the region.

By signing up the ex-Renegades roster, the ACCL gains the support of the best team in the APAC region. The move is undoubtedly beneficial for both parties, who, in the long-run, both want more exposure for APAC Challengers.

ACCL founder Joe Preston told The Rotation: “This is the next chapter on our journey. We have incredible ambitions for EU, but we now head in to APAC and we’re going to make a statement.

“Starting with this, a statement of real intent. This is our message on a global platform that APAC needs support, and we’re going to be the ones to kick things off.”

He also thanked the roster of the now Team ACCL for their support in the move.

He added: “I want to give a massive thanks personally to Fighta, Shockz, Louqa & Restalling for working with me on this and sharing the ambitions.”
