For the fourth time this year, Luis “peacemaker” Tadeu has found himself a new team, and this time it’s in another corner of the world.

Peacemaker, a former professional-turned-coach who gained prominence for coaching Team Liquid at ESL Cologne 2016, joined upcoming Danish team Heroic as their new head coach earlier today. He’s arriving from Chinese powerhouse TyLoo, and he will fill the coaching position for Heroic temporarily until January, according to a statement he gave to HLTV.

The Brazilian coach’s departure from TyLoo is mostly due to the language barrier between many of the players, such as Vladyslav “bondik” Nechyporchuk of Ukraine and Hansel “BnTeT” Ferdinand of Indonesia. The team’s lack of an in-game translator was apparently the biggest overall issue facing the mixed team.

“Due to the huge difference in style and mainly the language barrier, it took us longer than expected to adapt and also there was a lot of confusing moments for all of us,” Peacemaker said on Twitter. “Because of the language barrier it was way too hard for us to be able to fix everything and continue working together...this period was probably the hardest job I ever had in my life.”

Heroic is the fourth team that peacemaker has joined this year, with OpTic Gaming, Misfits, and TyLoo being the other three. TyLoo reaching the Boston Major Qualifier is the only notable accomplishment that he has attained in his worldwide coaching tour. As coach of Heroic, he will bring his diverse insight to Andreas “MODDII” Fridh, Marco “Snappi” Pfeiffer, Nikolaj “niko” Kristensen, Jakob “JUGi” Hansen, and Patrick “es3tag” Hansen.

“Needless to say, I am very happy we have Luis on board,” RFRSH's Director of Sports Kasper Hvidt said. “He brings a lot experience, he is very thorough, enthusiastic, and really hardworking.”
