The Legendary Rainbow Six Siege coach of G2 Esports Thomas “Shas” Lee is set to leave the organization next month.
Shas has been with G2 Esports for four long years, but as Shas stated in his tweet “all good things must come to an end”. G2 has decided not to renew Shas’ contract, as a result, he will be free to explore his options after August 13th.
Shas is one of Rainbow Six Siege’s most successful coaches. He was part of the dominating Penta roster, and under his guidance, Penta Sports won two back-to-back Pro League titles and the Six Invitational 2018.
In 2018, the roster was picked up by G2 Esports, and under the banner of G2, Shas and his legendary team won the Six Major Paris, Pro League title, DreamHack Winter 2019, the Six Invitational 2019, and the EUL 2020 finals.
However, slowly the OG Penta/G2 began to crumble as more and more players left the roster. Currently, only Shas remains from the most successful roster in history. But the recent downfall of G2 has led the org to go for a new coach, instead of renewing Shas’ contract.
In Stage 2 of EUL 2022, G2 started off with three losses, but eventually got their first win on the fourth playday. The chances of securing a ticket to the Berlin Major are looking slim but it is still possible. Shas will remain with the team for another month in an effort to win the rest of their matches.
