Crumbz retires from competitive play
Former Renegades and Team Dignitas jungler Alberto "Crumbz" Rengifo announced on Twitter Wednesday afternoon that he is retiring from competitive League of Legends.
There's so much to say but so little that matters. I will no longer play League. I am ecstatic for my new journey to begin. You'll know soon— Alberto Rengifo (@RNGCrumbz) May 18, 2016
Crumbz's professional career dates back to 2011, where he played top and jungle for various teams including Team Curse. A year later he would join Team Dignitas as their starting top laner, but would move back into the jungle to replace a then-suspended Christian "IWDominate" Rivera to begin the first season of the League of Legends Championship Series.
With Team Dignitas, Crumbz and company would make four playoff appearances while becoming one of the most popular teams in North America.
Crumbz however would part with Team Dignitas early into the 2015 Spring Split. A few months later he would form Misfits, a challenger team with former Moscow 5 and Gambit Gaming star Alex "Alex Ich" Ichetovkin. The pair would lead Misfits, and later Renegades, through the 2015 North American Challenger Series, qualifying for Season 6 of the LCS.
Renegades would go on to have a disappointing split, but would survive relegations after defeating Team Dragon Knights 3-0. However, a competitive ruling would force Renegades to sell their spot to Team EnVyUs, leaving him without a team.
Crumbz would later give more of an explanation while streaming Old School Runescape on Twitch, which was compiled by theScore esports.
"I was forced to retire. The team was sold to new owners, the new owners didn’t want me, nobody else wanted me to play on their LCS team so I retired."
