Daniel Vorborg Leaves Flames
Daniel Vorborg has decided to look for new opportunities and is stepping down as Head of Esports and co-owner.
It’s been the toughest decision of my life but ultimately I have decided to step down from Copenhagen Flames.
The past four years have been a crazy ride! We’ve gone from a small club with next to no budget and having jobs on the side – to right now, being the Top ranked Danish owned club in both CS:GO and Fortnite. On top of that we’ve built a real business with lots of employees and we are still growing so much year by year.
I’ve given everything to Flames the past four years, and have gotten everything in return. I appreciate all the colleagues I’ve worked with through the years and I have honestly never worked with so many people that had such a burning passion for what they do. It’s been an amazing time and I’ve never regretted my decision to take a chance on a smaller club in Denmark.
You might wonder now why I’ve decided to try something new – and ultimately the reason is the same as to why I joined Copenhagen Flames in the first place. My number one priority in my life is to constantly challenge myself; get out of my comfort zone and test my skills and abilities – that is what makes me happy. A large portion of my job is to work with the CS:GO division and for the past 3 years we’ve done some amazing things together. Ultimately though; we are standing ahead of another rebuild, and potentially a couple more, before we have the resources to consistently keep a roster that can compete at the highest level. I feel the need to challenge myself at that level, and as such I’m hoping to find that somewhere new.
I can’t stress enough how thankful I am to every single person that has been in Copenhagen Flames, we’ve been through thick and thin together. The highest highs of my life and the lowest, most stressful, lows. I’ll always look back at these four years of my life with great joy and see it as crucial years for my self development.
Thank you all from the bottom of my heart. I hope you will continue to kick ass without me, as we’ve been doing for the past four years together.
Steffen Thomsen, CEO, Copenhagen Flames:
Daniel has been an integral part of the club for four years and he will be sorely missed. Since I met him at an esports event in Germany and he later on agreed to join Flames, we’ve always had great chemistry and common understanding of how we wanted to build and grow an esports club. I have spent countless hours talking esports, business, and private matters with him, and his contribution to the club is indescribable.
He has done wonders with very little. Never asked for much while putting staff and players before himself in every aspect. His way of working with teams is very unique, being very transparent and dependable in every aspect. He’s definitely one of the brightest minds in all of esports and I hope he will get even more recognition for his success at our club. It truly is amazing what he has achieved here.
I wish him all the best going forward, and I have no doubt that wherever he goes great results and performances will follow. I can’t thank him enough for what he’s done for the club, and can’t wait to see what’s next for him.
“En gang Flames, altid Flames”.
