rDeeW is a former CS:GO player, who despite not having played on a team, was well-known nonetheless and often seen in a stack with Pants Down player magnetbrain .

VLR.gg had the chance to talk to Pants Down’s current head coach Crash and ask him a few questions regarding the pickup:
Why did the team decide that rDeeW was the player for the position?
rDeeW is someone that we just knew would be a great fit for us after trailing him, he brings a lot of energy to the team which compliments the rest of the squad really nicely.

I think the pickup is exactly what we needed going forward. He adds a lot of firepower to the team that we need to be able to contest with the top dogs of the scene and he also adds a lot of flair to the roster. He isn't afraid to go for those big plays and he has the ability to do so. I can confidently say that he was the missing piece that we needed to fill the huge gap that Twizz left to move into the remainder of the year with.
