CS:GO Yearly Recap

POSTED BY Grauling January 28, 2021

The team was founded in January, with the intention of getting into the HLTVs top 30. The team’s first lan was GeeksGoneWild #25 with a fairly disappointing exit in the Quarterfinals to Lyngby Vikings.

The teams’ first MDL campaign started and we are off great with a victory against #50 in the world Nemiga. Throughout February and March, we managed to pick up 7 wins and 9 losses which saw us looking at a 11th place in our rookie season, with just one win away from the playoff standings.

In April, things took a turn when Copenhagen Flames made an approach regarding Jonas “Queenix” Didriksen, and the transfer was finalized within days. During our period of finding a new replacement for Jonas, we played with several players such as Frederik “Fessor” Sørensen, Dennis “sycrone” Madsen and Emil “Remoy” Schlicther with the latter being officially signed in mid-June.

During this time, we participated in another season of ESEA Mountain Dew League #34 and getting a shot at playing for an ESL Pro League slot due to our American roster leaving the North American edition of the league. Playing Danish powerhouses Heroic and North wasn’t an easy task with only taking one map off of North a quick exit was in its place.

In the summertime we received numerous invites for prestigious cups as GRIDS “Eden Malta Vibes” and Relog Medias “Nine to five” Challenges. Due to parting ways with Daniel “mertz” Mertz and Jakob “jabbi” Nygaard and having to fielding a new player for tryouts during the matches, we ended up signing Nico “⁠nicoodoz⁠” Tamjidi as our new awp player.

In November we officially signed Anton “notaN” Gisselmann and Oliver “IceBerg” Berg which meant there was no room for Tobias “TOBIZ” Theo in the active roster. TOBIZ made a comeback mid-October to the roster as nicoodoz once again were one of the players transferred to Copenhagen Flames. We  played ESEA MDL #35 and finished with a disappointing 15th place, now relegation was the reality of the team. With the likes of Illuminar, FATE, Winstrike also competing in the relegation run we knew it would be a difficult task to get out of. The team started strong with a victory over Team LDLC 2-0 but failed to follow through as Team Winstrike and Illuminar were too strong which concluded our latest but hopefully not last, ESEA Mountain Dew League season.

CS:GO transfers 2021:

  • Jonas “Queenix” Dideriksen à Copenhagen Flames
  • Nico “Nicoodoz” Tamjidi à Copenhagen Flames

“Our CS:GO division in 2020 has been a rollercoaster ride starting with us losing our NA ESL Pro League spot, for then to part ways with our NA team and focus all efforts on our return to the Danish scene. The Danish team had a promising start, but due to numerous transfers and various complications throughout the year then the team never really found its consistency. I hope we can get things back on track in 2021 and reclaim our spot in ESEA MDL, but I know it is going to be a tough journey ahead of us.”
