Today we are pleased to announce Xavier ‘CommanderX‘ Harvy has joined NYYRIKKI as Head Coach to our Overwatch roster.
Xavier started in Team Fortress 2 as a player and in-game leader for several Tier 2 European teams before transitioning into casting and analyst desk work. He moved into Overwatch working with over.gg as a writer and casting for Assembly Winter 2018 and Broadcast.gg. His coaching experience started working with the Sydney Drop Bears in Contenders Australia where the team went on to win back to back championships.
Statement from CommanderX regarding his NYYRIKKI signing:
“After spending two successful seasons working with an Australian team, I’m very happy to have moved to a time zone closer to home and bring what I have learnt to NYYRIKKI. With the support of the org and the drive and dedication of the players we’ve had a fantastic start and I’m excited to see what we can achieve this season in the Open Division.”
NYYRIKKI CCO Joseph Blewitt had the following to say:
“CommanderX is a well respected esports professional and has good experience that he is bringing to NYYRIKKI and directly to Overwatch Frost. I couldn’t be happier to have him taking the role as Head Coach and the influence he has already had on the team this Open Division season. We’re eagerly waiting for the officials to start again this year.”
