North American Challenger Series organization Dream Team announced on its official website that Ram “Brokenshard” Djemal will be stepping down from the role as the team’s head coach, and will be taking an indefinite break from the Esports scene.
I am planning to take a break from eSports for the rest of summer to focus on my health and personal life. Something I’ve wanted for a while

Nick “Inero” Smith will be replacing the Israeli as the team’s head coach.
“I thank Dream Team for the opportunity they gave me and wish them the best of luck in the rest of their NACS run,” said Brokenshard about his departure, before adding that “this has been something on my mind for a long time and I only feel comfortable doing it leaving them in good hands with Nick Smith. He’s good.”
Brokenshard joined Dream Team in January, after playing and then coaching European Challenger Series side Team Dignitas EU (now Splyce) for most part of 2015. The former Jungler competed during this active career in both NA and EU LCS: after playing the 2014 Spring Split and 6 games of that year’s Summer Split for compLexity Gaming , the player crossed the Atlantic in order to play the remainder of the season for the Copenhagen Wolves.
