Michael 'Gregan' Ellis

(6 customer reviews)

About Me
My name is Michael Ellis, known in the esports world as Gregan. I’m a world championship winning Rocket League manager and coach.

My Journey working in esports started as a Rocket League commentator fronting EU events like the Gfinity Elite Series, Dreamhack Leipzig 2018 and several Insomnia Gaming Festivals. At the beginning of 2018 I became manager of Renault Vitality and our two-year goal was to become World Champions in the following four seasons of 2018/19. After missing out on Season 6 worlds at the end of 2018 and after signing Kaydop, I became coach of the team and in 2019. We became World Champions in our third season as a team and were one goal away from retaining our title in season four.

I have been coaching in Rocket League since shortly after the game came out, since I progressed into mid/high ranks early, I started helping my lower-ranked friends get the hang of the basics. Once I became a commentator and started analysing the game more thoroughly, I reached Grand Champion and was playing alongside and against the pros in ranked and started coaching more top players. Starting with teams competing at Insomnia Gaming Festivals, later coaching Supersonic Avengers, working with teams and individuals in RLCS and Gfinity Elite Series and eventually landing the job at Renault Vitality as manager and coach.

I was also the first person to publicly define and teach rotations with my Tabletop Tactics series which has helped create the language of rotation with many of the concepts still holding up today.

About My Coaching

Ready to become an elite player? If you want to evolve your high level play even further, the packages I offer will guide you through the next steps in your Rocket League development. With a combination of recorded and live replay analysis, you’ll get a short term boost to your understanding and gameplay. Alongside this, diagrammatic and written resources will provide post-coaching learning for longer term improvement.

Having been limited to coaching one team (Renault Vitality) for the last two years, I am excited to be a neutral coach who can offer my knowledge and experience to anyone. Whether you’re a team pushing for number 1 in the world or a top ranked player looking for some tips, I can help.

I focus mostly on 2v2 and 3v3 playlists and working with champ 3s and higher. Those looking for coaching within 1v1 playlist or at lower ranks are welcome to book on for the Basic Package, but otherwise I am happy to recommend a coach more suited to your needs.

Look forward to hearing from you!

Team Package

Email me and let’s chat! I’d love to help your team reach the next level, so let’s work together to figure out how best we can do that – it varies a lot depending on your level, current coaching in place and what you’re looking for from my coaching.

The pricing will be similar to what I’ve quoted above based on time/format. But with a team, more emphasis will be put on teamwork, communication and how you can stay at the top of your game under pressure.

Please contact me by direct message on discord for more information on team coaching.

6 reviews for Michael ‘Gregan’ Ellis

  1. ian.goforth (verified owner)

    I am a mid-GC, 3000 hours, once top 100, and was looking for a coach to take my game to the next level. Gregan explained a lot of concepts I knew about and showed me how they all work together to win games. I thought it was great that he will not cut off his coaching session at the time limit, rather finishing his topic and the session. He is very clear, concise, and makes sure you understand each concept before moving on. I’m giving this review 4 stars because the “generalized training resources” in the basic package is just the graphics he uses and isn’t a training schedule, training packs, or even advice on how to improve the quickest like I expected. So, quite literally, the basic package is just replay analysis and concepts. Also, the coaching session started 3 hours late due to a scheduling error.

    Very professional coaching. His method, materials and approach showcase his experience.
    His tips are precise, well thought out and on point. You will always get what hes describing.
    He is very friendly and his way of speaking and criticising
    is very constructive.

    I would recommend him 10/10. If you think about booking, book now 😉

  3. n.crenshaw (verified owner)

    Gregan has easily been the best coach I’ve had so far (not to take away from the other coaches). His experience really shines through when he coaches you. I for example am a very mechanical player, however one of my flaws was setting up enough options for me to be able to fully utilize my mechanics, with my main things to work on being boost reserves, boost economy, maintaining options, etc. He takes what your strengths are and builds your complete playstyle around that, rather than just having you play a certain way. 10/10 would recommend.

    Gregan was very helpful in understanding some of the higher level gameplay.

    If you’re looking for a serious investment into your future Rocket League career then Gregan is the top shelf.

    Words honestly can’t express how insanely valuable my coaching session was with Gregan. He was pointing things out that I have never noticed *from a different perspective.* And that really is what makes his coaching worth it.

    An outside opinion from a former World Champion coach is incredible. When you buy a coaching session from Gregan, You’re paying for thousands of hours of mistakes, experiences, and insider knowledge that you don’t have to go through and repeat. Not only are you paying for thousands of hours of his own experiences, you’re paying for something that only very few have and that’s the outsider effect.

    Everything I learned from my session is something that you can’t find anywhere except at the top. All the world’s best go against the grain of the world and take the road less traveled on, the narrow path. *And that has made all the difference.*

    Gregan also gives off that worth a damn factor where he’s aware of everything has such a humble personality. He’s very accommodating and also someone you can talk to like you’ve known for years.

    If you don’t know if you should pull the trigger and buy his coaching, remember that you’re paying for thousands of hours of experiences and failures that you would have to go through for yourself if you don’t get his coaching. 🙂

    Disclaimer: I won my coaching session in a competition.

    Gregan gave some quality insights into both how I play the game and what I was doing wrong in common situations. There was no sense of patronism, just realistic assessments, and he made a real effort to adjust how he explained things to the way that made most sense to me and how I play.

    It’s blatantly clear talking to Gregan how much he knows about the game, and how much he loves it, both as fun and as sport, and it made it very easy to talk about different aspects as we went along.

    He’s given me a plan to work with and hopefully improve going forward, and once it’s all been taken onboard fully I’m fairly sure I’ll want to return for another session once I’ve cracked GC.

    Really happy with how it went, convinced me that coaching is worthwhile even at Champ ranks.

Once you place your order the coach will contact you within 48 hours by email or Discord to finalize your session details with you and your team.

After you book, the coach will be in touch over email or Discord chat to discuss dates and times for your session.

Yes, certainly. You can discuss what timings work best with your coach.

If you can’t make a session you need to let your coach know 6 hours in advance, otherwise, you’re at risk of losing your order and may need to cover the transaction costs at 5% of your order.

Yes, but you need to check first. It’s usually possible to do it within the next 72 hours but the coach might be busy so it’s worth checking. The coach Discord ID is on this page, near the time availability.
