Danish Counter-Strike organization Copenhagen Flames have signed all five members of their new lineup, according to multiple sources close to the situation. The five players are as follows: Daniel "mertz" Mertz, Jakob “Jabbi” Nygaard, Marcus “maNkz” Kjeldsen, Sebastian "Basso" Aagaard, and Jakob "Daffu" Schildt.
DBLTAP originally reported the first two acquisitions for Copenhagen Flames earlier in the month with mertz and maNkz, who have now rounded out their active roster. A need for a new roster came after transferring their previous lineup to x6tence last month. The previous roster is headlined by Ismail "refrezh" Ali, known most for his time with OpTic Gaming.
Basso has spent over a year in total with Copenhagen Flames, part of which was spent on the inactive list. He was replaced on the team last year by René "TeSeS" Madsen who would go on to join Heroic in April. Daffu has been teammates with maNkz on Lyngby Vikings since March, but both will now join this new roster together in the coming days.
Copenhagen Flames originally weren’t expected to participate in Season 1 of Flashpoint earlier this year, but were still invited after BIG opted to play in ESL Pro League despite qualifying for the first season. They unfortunately finished in last place for Season 1 in an event that was the last to feature any kind of offline play amidst the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Representatives from Copenhagen Flames declined comment.
