This article has been updated to include the announcement of Blank as GM.
After some time playing for organizations like SoaR and Dignitas in CS:GO, mCe transitioned into a Coach role with Rogue in late 2018. The team failed to reach the Finals of both ESL Pro League's seventh and eighth season, but in general climbed worldwide rankings and established themselves as a force within the Tier 2 North American scene.
The American enjoyed a better 2020 after signing with Chaos in February, leading the team to a breakthrough year. After breaking out of ESEA Premier S34 the team soared to a top 4 finish at DreamHack Open Summer 2020 and ESL One: Cologne 2020. They finished off their year with good showings at ESL Pro League Season 12 and IEM New York, culminating in wins at IEM Beijing — after besting Evil Geniuses — and DreamHack Masters Winter. As the team split due to not finding a new home, mCe's last coaching opportunity presented itself at the third ESEA Cash Cup with Bad News Bears, which they won.
Gen.G finished 2020 by placing in the top 4 of the JBL Quantum Cup and winning the Pittsburgh Knights Before Christmas, as they failed to qualify for First Strike in both the NSG and UMG Tournaments. They started 2021 off on the right foot, qualifying for the Main Event of the first Champions Tour Challengers, after wins against Pittsburgh Knights and Renegades.
Arnold Hau, COO and CGO of Gen.G, revealed through his twitter that Blank will become the section's General Manager and is no longer their coach, a position now filled by mCe.
