Flames CS:GO Roster 2020

We are back with a brand new CS:GO roster for the 2020/21 season!
After we sold our entire lineup to x6tence, our director of esport Daniel Vorborg has worked on acquiring five new players and today we’re happy to tell you all about it. 

Daniel Vorborg explains the process as follows:
“We’ve been through the process of scouting new players many times, but this time it was a bit different since we needed to acquire an entirely new roster. We haven’t done that since back in October 2018, where I didn’t really have the same insights into competitive CS:GO as I do now.

The process, however, started similarly to when we have needed to fill a single slot in our roster; by creating a rather large list with all the potential candidates followed by narrowing it down watching demos and hearing peer opinions. The next step was to interview the most promising candidates – in total I think I probably interviewed around 12 players.
Fairly quickly different possible avenues were created, as some players were a package deal, and some players fitted better into some roster variations than others. In the end, we had to make some tough decisions but I’m confident that we have made the right ones.”

As such we are very excited to welcome:

Daniel Vorborg expands on the choices made for the roster:

“Marcus “maNkz” Kjeldsen was the first choice we locked in. He was a player we also had looked at previously with our old lineup as a potential player if we ever needed a new rifler again. He brings a good amount of firepower, but more importantly he is very close to the prototype of what we want a Copenhagen Flames player to be – he is down to earth, mentally strong, and has a very logically sound approach to the game.

It wasn’t the intention from the get-go that Marcus was to be our in-game leader, but because of his person we quickly started discussing the possibility. I think there is a lack of strong in-game leaders in Denmark and most of our other available options we didn’t truly believe in for the long haul. So, we decided together that it would be better to develop Marcus as our in-game leader and maybe be a bit worse off in the short run in order to hopefully be in a better spot for the long run.

The next choice we locked in was Daniel “mertz” Mertz. No other option we looked at was even close to challenging him on experience and individual prowess.

While Daniel has a reputation of having a bit of an ego, I think that is his past haunting him. I had talks with him from back when we needed to find a replacement from Asger “farlig” Jensen and many talks before we finalized his contract this time around. In every single interaction I’ve had with Daniel, he has been incredibly humble and ready to learn and improve.
I cannot wait to help Daniel achieve his dream of returning to some of the largest stages in the world.

One of the hardest positions to fill is a rifle player, that can play all of the central positions of the team. Map control on the terrorist side, and positions like yard of train and A on Overpass on the counter-terrorist side. It requires a player with a great amount of firepower, while also being an active talker and great at taking initiative. The rifle we chose for this position is Jakob “jabbi” Nygaard. Jabbi has only just turned 17 years old, but he blew me away with his ability to take on responsibility, and take initiative on behalf of his teammates.

It’s a lot of responsibility for a young player, but we are confident that Jabbi will in time live up to some of the great players we’ve had in these positions.

The last two spots were the two riflers that needed to fill outer- and anchor positions on our roster. Jakob “Daffu” Schildt and Sebastian “Basso” Aagaard were our players of choice. Jakob impressed us especially during his time standing in for AGF, as he helped them achieve their best period ever as a team. Although he won’t admit it himself, he has an incredible aim, and first bullet accuracy, and a great gamesense for when and where he can take map control on his own.

We are also pleased to welcome back Sebastian to our club, as he returns for his second stint with us. As I’ve said many times before Sebastian has one of the greatest untapped potentials in the danish scene, and while we failed to unlock it the first time around, I’m hopeful that we will be successful in our second try. It took me a while to truly understand Sebastian, so when I finally started to realize what help he needed, it was sort of too late already. I think both Sebastian and Flames as a whole are in a better position to help each other out now, and I can’t wait to see him pull out victorious in clutch after clutch as he did in his last stay here.”

The new team will already be playing their first official match tomorrow in Nine to Five 3 Dawn, where we will face BIG Academy, Wisla Krakow and Skade in a battle for further advancement.
