David ‘Kingfisher’ Kingsford has joined the Legacy CS:GO team as coach for the rest of the year.
The end of 2018 will be big for the CS:GO team, having qualified to compete in the ESL AU&NZ Championship finals at Supernova in Brisbane in November, while currently playing in the ESEA Mountain Dew League, ESL Pro League Oceania and the LPL Pro ANZ Invitational.
Having Kingfisher to guide them through those tournaments is a real boost for the CS:GO team, after previous manager Iain ‘SnypeR’ Turner left the team in August.
Head of Esports Tim Wendel said he is looking forward to Kingfisher joining the team.
“I’m excited to see the direction that the team heads in under Kingfisher’s leadership,” Wendel said.
“There have been some strategic adjustments made already and I hope it will help us finish the year off strongly.”
Kingfisher is a 22-year-old marketing graduate who started playing CS:GO in 2015 and ended up leading Downfall to the number eight spot in Oceania on HLTV.
Previously, Kingfisher coached Surge through ESL Pro League ANZ and MDL.
“I love the game’s high concepts and analysing matches,” Kingfisher said.
“I spent the last three year dedicating myself entirely to the role of IGL.”
The appointment of Kingfisher coincides with a recent roster change, with Stefan ‘Lacore’ Paunovic joining the team.
He replaced Euan ‘sterl1ng’ Moore, who moved to Grayhound Gaming.
Lacore is already familiar with the team, having subbed in for Legacy at IEM Sydney in May this year.
