Sources: Complexity to sign Copenhagen Flames Roster
As the biggest surprise of the PGL Stockholm Major, Copenhagen Flames, where the heroics of the now-benched youngster LNZ got NIP over the finish line qualifying for the Champions Stage, over Copenhagen Flames. Flames came out after the Major open to talks about selling their roster as reported by Dot Esports (Source).
The sources revealed to EsportFire that there were several teams interested, where Complexity is the front-runners now.
‘The Juggernaut’ has had a turbulent 2021, where the overarching storyline has been the constant usage of stand-ins while Kristian "k0nfig" Wienecke was out with his wrist injury. Due to the team having lackluster success in this period and the announced transfer of Benjamin "blameF" Bremer and Kristian "k0nfig" Wienecke signing for Astralis, they have released all their players from the contracts and are looking to rebuild for 2022.
Copenhagen Flames is the discovery of 2021. The team proved at IEM Fall that they are capable of playing on the big stage. Through the Qualifier, the team made it to the last RMR event of the year. With zero points and a dream, the lineup started the event and sensationally defeated teams like G2, BIG and mousesports and advanced to the playoffs as first place in their group. Although these did not go as desired, the young Danish team had already played themselves into the hearts of the community.
With a final score of 1563 points and a victory in the deciding match against Team Fiend, they qualified for the Major in Stockholm. In the New Challenger Stage the almost fairy tale story continued. Victories against Astralis, BIG and Heroic brought the team to the New Legends Stage, where they had to give themselves, as already mentioned above, narrowly defeated.
The incredible quality of the lineup has already been showcased over the last weeks, but now the key is to bring consistency to the team and prove themselves on the big stage in the long run. Who would suit better than an organization like Complexity?
According to the sources, the lineup will consist of:
- Rasmus 'HooXi' Nielsen
- Nico 'nicoodoz' Tamjidi
- Fredrik 'roeJ' Jørgensen
- Jakob 'jabbi' Nygaard
- Rasmus 'Zyphon' Nordfoss
