Euan Ingram, better known as Tadpole, joined the new Wolves Esports Rocket League project at the start of the season. With him as veteran captain, the intention was for him to share his experience and knowledge of the game with two young stars.
Although the initial release didn’t go as planned or hoped, a roster change at the start of the Spring Split allowed the team to reach the top 12 in one of the last regional events of the year.
Tadpole’s career dates back to 2017, but it was in 2018 that he had his first impact. Line up in the now well-known Triple Trouble roster, qualify and then finish in the top four in RLRS Season Five.
It would be the following season that he and his team qualified for RLCS, before making the fondly remembered run to the top four in the European league in season seven, qualifying for the World Finals and winning. to be crowned as one of the top eight teams in the world.
His career has been a rollercoaster ever since, but throughout his journey he has always been a strong individual and team player, claiming many scalps as the circuit changed with Season X in 2020. Euan will now take this experience and knowledge in a new direction on his retirement, where he will move on to training.
Esports Director Michael Moriarty said the following: “Têtard is a true legend of the game, and his ability to stay near the top of competitive Rocket League over the past two seasons despite the onslaught of new talent arriving is a testament to his ability and dynamism.
“I am very happy that his last chance at competition came while he was in our jersey, and despite the performances throughout the season not being where we wanted them to be, it has been a period fantastic throughout. I wish him luck and good fortune as he embarks on coaching, helping to shape the next generation of esports in a different way.
Tadpole’s final run as a competitive Rocket League player will be at the Commonwealth Esports Championships in Birmingham, 6e and 7e August, where he will represent Wales in the Rocket League.
Further announcements on Wolves’ position in Rocket League will be announced at a later date.
