Rigas "Rigas" Papadopoulos (Greek: Ρήγας Παπαδόπουλος) is a League of Legends esports personality, formerly manager for Zerolag Esports. He's also currently the jungler for SLR.

Biography[edit]

Different Dimension[edit]

In June 2015, Rigas joined Different Dimension's social media team following the public announcement and opening event of their gaming mansion. Shortly after eGaming 2015, he underwent a tryout for the position of analyst and succeeded, beginning work on October. His first tournament as analyst was the ESL South East Europe Championship, Season 2, which Different Dimension won.

Rigas was appointed assistant manager in the buildup to the ESL Thessaloniki 2016 Invitational LAN, in which Different Dimension finished 2nd. He retained the position for about a year and a half, a period of numerous high finishes in LAN tournaments for the team: 1st place in GameAthlon 3.5, and ESL South East Europe Championship Season 5, 2nd in eGaming 2016, the InSpot Extreme Cup, and Digital Universe 3. They also participated in Season 1 and Season 2.

Still the assistant manager under newly appointed team manager and coach Bliss for LGC Season 3, Rigas was promoted to team manager[20] after Bliss' dismissal following very poor performances. Sitting at last place with less than half the season to go, the team partially recovered and was challenging for a playoff spot up until the last matchday, but ultimately lost and finished just below the cut. Although avoiding automatic relegation, they would need to participate in a playout for next season.

With a roster overhaul occuring as almost all members left the team, Different Dimension successfully qualified for the GameAthlon 5 LAN, losing in the semifinals. A new roster overhaul took place, this time unsuccessful, with the team losing the LGC Season 4 playout and therefore not qualifying for the split. Following this result, Rigas left the organization after being with it for 3 years.[21]

Outlawz[edit]

Follwing a short period of free agency, Rigas joined Outlawz halfway through LGC Season 4 as their social media manager.[22] Soon after the split ended, the organization was purchased and the new owner assigned Rigas to the general manager position.[23] He later also took on team manager duties as the team unveiled its new roster,[24] participating in the ESL SEEC Season 8 and making it to the Greek semifinals before losing to EU Masters quarterfinalists and eventual tour finalists Panathinaikos.

After a qualification attempt to the GameAthlon 2019 Winter LAN was thwarted by fellow LGC team Gamespace eSports, Outlawz participated in the LGC successor, the LGL 2019 Spring Split. Finishing 4th in the regular season, they qualified to the playoffs, where they were beaten in the semifinals by eventual winners Future Perfect WLGaming.

Rigas was the only team member to stay for the GLL 2019 Summer Split, as all players and coaching staff left the organization. A new roster was formed and was tied for 5th place after almost halfway through the split, but Rigas alongside almost every other player and staff member departed during the mid-season transfer period.[25] The owner of Outlawz was banned from the league shortly afterwards for "repeatedly breaching agreements".[26]

Neon Esports[edit]

On July 8, it was announced that Rigas had joined Neon Esports as their team manager.[27] Following the conclusion of the Summer 2019 Nordic Championship regular season, with Neon narrowly missing playoffs, Rigas announced his departure from the organization.[28]

While on Neon Esports, Rigas had a short stint as the head coach as the head coach of Imperials. They qualified to the GameAthlon 2019 Summer LAN, losing in the quarterfinals to eventual winners Greek Regenesis.

Flayn eSports Swiss Edition[edit]

On the 30th of September 2019, Rigas was announced as the team manager for Flayn eSports Swiss Edition.[29] He stayed with the newly-qualified side until the end of the ESL Swisscom Hero League Season 2, with the team finishing 6th and securing their stay in the 1st division. He announced his search for a new team shortly afterwards.[30]

nerdRage[edit]

On the 4th of June 2020, it was announced that Rigas had joined the newly reformed League of Legends team of nerdRage as their manager.[31] Following an unsuccessful qualification attempt in the UKLC 2020 Summer Open Qualifier, some changes to the lineup for UKEL 2020 Summer were made. nerdRage finished 2nd in the regular season and then again in the playoffs. As such, they qualified to the UKLC 2020 Relegation Series, where they were defeated by Barrage Academy, not managing to get promoted to the UKLC. Rigas announced his departure from the team in September.[32]

Zerolag Esports[edit]

On the 22nd of October 2020, and despite having previously said he was planning to take a break,[33] Rigas returned to Greece and joined Zerolag Esports partway through the Greek Legends 2020 Winter split, with Zerolag tied for last place. In a post on his Facebook page, he said that he had offers from 5 teams and chose Zerolag due to holding the person who made the offer to him in high regard and believing the project to have potential.[34] After Rigas joined, Zerolag's winrate rose from 25% to 40%, but the team was still unable to secure a playoff spot, finishing 7th. On the 31st of December, he announced he would not continue with the team.[35]

Other work in the League of Legends scene[edit]

Journalist[edit]

Rigas has worked as a journalist for Greek esports news outlet CowboyTV, having covered Esports Balkan League Season 1 and Season 2 and eGaming 2015/2016/2017. He has interviewed people such as Bwipo,[36] Veteran,[37] and NicoThePico.[38]

Caster[edit]

Rigas has casted the LoL Greek League 2019 Spring Split, the Greek Legends League 2019 Summer qualifiers, the LGC Season 4 qualifiers, the GameAthlon 2019 Winter qualifiers, and the GameAthlon 2019 Summer 2nd qualifier.
