On Tuesday, the Danish organization announced the signing of Rasmus “HooXi” Nielsen and Fredrik “roeJ” Jørgensen, while also adding the 17-year-old prodigy, Rasmus “Zyphon” Nordfoss to the lineup. In the process of rebuilding a new roster, Magnus “Nodios” Olsen decided to bench himself, because he didn’t see himself fit into the new squad in terms of in-game roles.
Head of Esports at CPH Flames, Daniel Vorborg explains the changes to the lineup:
“After we agreed with Asger “AcilioN” Larsen to look into new options for both parties; I quickly knew that I wanted to get a hold of HooXi. I’ve worked with HooXi before and have always appreciated him as a player and leader. Luckily for us; HooXi has also enjoyed working with us in the past and it was quickly evident that both parties wanted to make this work. After discussions back and forth between myself and HooXi, we arrived at bringing in a veteran player in roeJ to help guide and lead a lot of the young talent we’d have on the team. We also decided to bring in Zyphon, as he is one of the most gifted individual players either of us has seen in a longtime.”
