Rix Ronday has been a member of teams like Fadeaway, Triple Trouble and Method, with his last tenure in Wolves Esports ending with a Top 8 finish in the last RLCS Season X regional event.
He has also made a name for himself in the promotional league RLRS, the team-based league The Field and the Gfinity UK Elite Series where he crowned himself champion twice with Reason Gaming and Method in Season 2 and 4 respectively.
Now, the veteran is seeking a management or coaching position for the first time since debuting in the professional scene in 2017.
We wish Rix Ronday the best of luck in his endeavours and hope to see him come back stronger for the Rocket League Championship Series Season 11.
