Apeks have announced the signing of former NiP player Tim “nawwk” Jonasson, who had been sitting on the bench ever since the Ninjas made the shock signing of Nicolai “device” Reedtz from Astralis in late April. The 24-year-old Swedish AWPer joins Apeks on a transfer from NiP and will be teaming up with Asger “AcilioN” Larsen in a rebuild of Apeks' roster after the organization decided to part ways with four of their players in November.
Since he parted ways with Ninjas in Pyjamas, nawwk’s only officials have been from the Calyx Dune Cup Fall event back in August when he helped POGGERZ claim the title and qualify for BLAST Premier Showdown.
“I’m looking forward to starting playing again. It’s been about 8 months since I played my last official game with NiP and sitting on the bench has both been a good and bad learning experience,” the Swedish AWPer said in a statement to Apeks.
“Starting from scratch will be a great feeling. It sure does mean we need to work a lot harder to get where we want to be, but it also brings a ton of motivation from every possible angle.”
Apeks’ roster now looks as follows:
Tim “nawwk” Jonasson
Asger “AcilioN” Larsen
Pål “Polly” Kammen (coach)
Players with contracts set to expire December 31:
Dennis “dennis” Edman
Joakim “Relaxa” Gustafsson
Fredrik “FREDDyFROG” Gustafsson
Sander “Grusarn” Iversen
