RRQ has made an announcement regarding the departure of head coach Regi “Bangduk” Kurniawan, ahead of MPL Indonesia Season 12.
This decision comes shortly after their disappointing performance in MSC 2023, where they failed to qualify after an early exit from the playoffs.
Interestingly, this marks their third worst achievement, as they were unable to reach the grand final, which previously occurred in seasons 3 and 7.
Speculations regarding a coaching change had been circulating prior to the official announcement, especially considering the strong connection between the team and Zaya, the former coach of Falcon Esports.
The rumors gained further credibility when RRQ recently acquired Naomi from Falcon Esports.
This development made it increasingly likely for a new coach to join the team, leading to Bangduk’s departure.
Bangduk’s tenure as head coach for RRQ was relatively short-lived, and his departure raises questions about his future plans.
Currently, there is no information available regarding his next destination or coaching opportunities.
