After the addition of Richard "shox" Papillon, Apeks has finalized their five-man roster. The idea of signing shox is to be sure that the team has enough experience to help the younger players on the team, helped by STYKO the new in-game leader. The ultimate goal for the Norwegian organization is to become a tier 1 team.
"I will try to bring my knowledge and experience of the game to help STYKO in his new role. I know he can become a great in-game leader. My goal for this team is to create good chemistry between everyone and work step by step to become a solid tier 1 team." - shox said in a statement to Apeks' website.
The first challenge for the new Apeks lineup is at IEM Rio Major open qualifiers, kicking off on August 15.
