Dragon Ball FighterZ veteran Eduardo “HookGangGod” Deno announced his departure from NRG Esports on Monday via Twitter. The fighting game player quickly rose to prominence after the game launched on January 28, 2018.
NRG signed HookGangGod alongside Steve “Supernoon” Carbajalm after the former achieved several victories at Next Level Battle Circuit, the premiere New York FGC weekly. His dedication to the game led to his being fired from his job at a movie theatre but also launched him into the top 10 on the global leaderboards.
During the first Dragon Ball FighterZ World Tour circuit, HookGangGod managed to finish in the top four at several major events, which secured him a spot in the Finals where he finished 7th-8th.
This season, however, HookGangGod hasn't placed as well at tournaments and he's also attended fewer events. As a result, he also failed to make it into the Dragon Ball FighterZ World Tour 2019-2020 Finals. With his departure, NRG exits the Dragon Ball FighterZ competitive scene as Supernoon left the organization much earlier in April 2019.
It's believed that the organization wasn't making enough returns from Dragon Ball FighterZ to remain, but HookGangGod has declared his intent to join the game's third competitive season. It is also a possibility that he will compete in this season's Last Chance Qualifier for a shot at the Dragon Ball FighterZ World Tour Finals 16th spot.
In his tweet, HookGangGod also shared his plan to compete in the upcoming Granblue Fantasy Versus game which will be a part of the ArcREVO World Tour 2020 circuit.
