Copyright Imposters

We recently came across a clan called Renegade Esports. I had a civil conversation with him about changing their name, he agreed but It did not sound convincing. I looked at their command channel bc they let me in their server and they were all under 1 kda. They are false impersonating us and he basically told me so. If they do not change their name I will probably take action. We are the official clan and we have a scrim server and we are Pro FNPL eSports. I will keep an eye on them and if they refuse to change their name, we will all just take them down. So hopefully it doesn’t come to that.

Renegade Scrim Server

How to Scrim In the Renegade Scrims

They are basically exactly the same as all others but just in case heres the steps:
  1. You must begin by joining the Scrim Voice Chat Channel.
  2. Make sure the Team Leader Clicks Start on the game but cancels it before it hits 100%.
  3. Then you must paste the last 3 digits/numbers in the #Scrim-Codes Channel so it knows which Game/Server that you joined.
  4. The Scrim Manager will know how to setup the Scrim if its Solo,Duo, or Squad in the #Scrim-Brackets channel.

Here are some Pictures to help:

After the game you must record your kills in the #Score-Submission Channel.

You will type  type .submit <mode> <kills> <placement> <gamecode> in the Screenshot Comment.

IMPORTANT! you must take a screenshot of the Scores and it will be evaluated by the BOT so you cant Cheat.

Happy Renegade Scrimming.
It comes with a Leaderboard and keeps track of all stats.
