Alpine Esports and Percy agree to part ways ahead of RLCS 11

The 17-year-old will be LFT as Alpine needs a new third-man before the start of the next RLCS season.
Alpine Esports and Percy agree to part ways ahead of RLCS 11

Professional Rocket League player Oliver "Percy" Kenneth Ortiz is parting ways with Alpine Esports, both parties announced on 5th May in a move that was mutually agreed.

The Mexican-American pro will be a hot commodity as a free agent, at only 17-years-old and one of the most talented players mechanically in North America.

“We decided it would be the best option for the three of us. I wish them the best of luck moving forward and want to thank them for the memories that we shared. As for Alpine, I had a blast working with them and they helped me improve as a player”, Percy shared via a TwitLonger, dismissing any “bad blood” between him and the team or organisation.

Alpine Esports finished 8th in the region, two places short of qualifying for the RLCS X Championships and is also left out of the Spring Major coming up in the middle of May.

Their performances were subpar for their standards with almost a dozen top-eight finishes throughout the season but never breaking in the top four in any of the nine regionals and/or three majors.

Alpine Esports picked up the Affinity roster of which Percy was a part of back in June 2020 as his departure leaves behind teammates Christopher “majicbear” Acevedo and Daniel “jordan” Bholla.

The organisation will be looking for a new third before the start of RLCS Season 11 and Percy will be looking for a starting position effective immediately.
