Norse announce disbandment
Time: 2017-04-18 13:13
Game: Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

Norse's players have decided to go their separate ways, Morten "zEVES" Vollan has revealed on Twitter.

The announcement comes in the aftermath of Norse's disappointing performance in the BYOC qualifier for Copenhagen Games, in which they were eliminated in the Round of 16 following a 1-2 defeat against eXtatus.

Formerly known as deadweight, the Norwegian team created Norse, a player-owned organization, in October, joining the ranks of esports marketing company RFRSH, which also has ties to Astralis, Heroic and GODSENT.

Norse finished top 16 at last year's ESWC 

At the time of the announcement, Morten "zEVES" Vollan mentioned that the goal was to compete with the top 20 in the world before the end of the year, but the team never reached such heights. Their biggest achievements were winning two local tournaments, the Gigacon PRIME Championship and Telenorligaen Winter.

On Twitter, zEVES revealed that he is willing to listen to coaching offers. As for the remaining players, their future is subject to conjecture at this point.

Norse had the following players:

Morten "zEVES" Vollan
 Pĺl "Polly" Kammen
 Kristoffer "Mystic" Michelsen 
 Henrik "becker" Becker
 Jorgen "cromen" Robertsen

Most of us did that xD
2017-04-18 13:21:07
Wonder if zEVEs would accept coaching for free if i contacted him to coach my tier 999999999999999 mm team
2017-04-18 13:24:03
If you pay..
2017-04-18 14:18:31
everyone wants to become top1 and no1 is satisfied by just getting paid to play this game
2017-04-18 14:22:01
If he got an offer to coach a tier 3 NA team with zero prospects, but really good salary, you think he would decline that? :)
2017-04-18 14:28:30
pay me 600€ to play this game and i will play it happily 10 hours a day
2017-04-18 14:56:37

2017-04-18 13:33:02
you had a good scene going with rain,jkaem,rubino and norse but now that norse are gone the scene is quite small xD
2017-04-18 13:42:06
We haven't had a good scene since 1.6
Sadly, it's not worth it to try to go big in csgo in Norway, since you will actually have to be top5 to earn more than a regular job here
2017-04-18 14:18:24
i dont think there was any legit top full Norwegian 1.6 team aswell, lots of talent, but always around top5-8 wcg

eoLithic, Team9, CatchGamer etc. and then ofc the mixes like NiP, SK, Team NOA, mibr etc with XeqtR and elemeNt
2017-04-18 15:58:09
pretty sure catchgamer won cpl once as a full norwegian lineup

Who cares about team which hasn't been even in top30 in at least last 2 years?
2017-04-18 13:18:01
I do because Mystic is Norway's second best player after rain. And no, I didn't forget jkaem, he's decent but not good as Mystic.
2017-04-18 13:19:44
Rubino can rekt ur overrated mystic with one hand lul

i never cared about that player, never noticed him play only seen him on tier 6 teams announcements, its not common to know about that player
2017-04-18 13:21:07
Who are you?
2017-04-18 13:25:24
Why do you ask about that?
Nothing to do with the facts
2017-04-18 13:33:10
I can ask whatever I want and you can't stop me.
2017-04-18 13:49:00
Correct that he can't stop you from asking irrelevant questions because you have no real arguments, but it does not mean that youre not asking irrelevant questions because you have no real arguments.

2017-04-18 16:33:00
the goal was to compete with the top 20 in the world
2017-04-18 13:14:12
2017-04-18 13:14:28
Expected from Norweigan CS

2017-04-18 13:15:19
No swedes in top 8 - while we got rain in the second best team atm
2017-04-18 16:01:29
Lmao, love how you say "Top 8", when Fnatic is Top 9, why not say Top 10?

2017-04-18 16:03:50
lets say top 5, neutral number. You got still rekt, double moral as we say here
2017-04-18 16:05:21
Swedish coach in your favorite players team ;)

I mean come on lol.

"Hurray" you got ONE player in a top 5 team, but not a full Norweigan team in top 40.

So what do you want?
2017-04-18 16:14:13
Just wanted to point out that norwegian cs has at least a connection to tier 1
2017-04-18 16:16:23

Coaching noname. Astralis should hurry up.

2017-04-18 13:18:39
Typical Norwegian team, disband after less than 6 month :(
2017-04-18 13:18:42
Correct me if im wrong, but Norse has been going on for much longer than 6 months. Just under the name deadweight instead of Norse.
2017-04-18 13:21:03
still, we're not allowed to have nice things :(

2017-04-18 13:47:32
True, but cromen, mystic and becker are all talents that should be picked up by some academy team or something.
2017-04-18 14:13:28
Lol my dad did some contract work for Telenor. He worked in Norway for a year.
2017-04-18 14:13:19
I feel sad for zEVES all his previous Copenhagen Wolves teammates are having a good time but he's stuck without a team :(
2017-04-18 13:45:36
Zende didn't have much success either.
2017-04-18 14:25:17
yeah i was about to edit the post and add i feel sad for zeves and zende hmm cs go scene is cruel for pros with nicknames starting with Z
2017-04-18 14:44:45
yeah. thats why schneider changed his nickname
2017-04-18 14:53:59
well zEVES is an arrogant BOT, fucking deserves it.
2017-04-18 16:01:20
"top 20"

no wonder they disband when they have such unrealistic goals
2017-04-18 13:51:09
Expected, they aren't care about
2017-04-18 13:53:14
cromen: beast all-round player with alot of potential
mystic: really good rifler, but lacks the motivation to become even better
becker: good clutcher and solid fundamentals

faze academy, nip academy, dignitas academy, penta, or maybe another org can pick them up

polly: washed up af, waste of time

Did any player on this roster get better with time after they were picked up? Seems like they just got worse and worse.

Wonder how up and coming amateurs like Grande would've developed on this team.
2017-04-18 14:12:02
Becker is ok
2017-04-18 14:27:03
I mean all of them are good players, the question is did they become even better in norse? And was there more talented people who could've taken a step up on that team.
2017-04-18 14:29:06
Grande = most likely cheater.
Refuses to go to pre-paid bootcamps etc. where all expenses are covered and it's not like he got a life, all that ginger does is spending time in his gaming chair.
2017-04-18 16:04:01
He's been to as many international lans the last 2 months as Becker, polly, zeves, mystic and cromen has the last year i'm pretty sure. You certainly can't question his motivation.

I'm not psychic so I can't tell you if he cheats or not, but every big talent basically gets called out for cheating before they break through. If he goes to lans, bootcamps etc then you've got to give him the benefit of the doubt.
2017-04-18 16:22:04
Not after re-watching demos of me playing with him. He's basically braindead and relies only on aim and for some reason he aims in very different velocities, just like an aimbot. And in no way is he a BIG talent, there are plenty players in Norway, just as good.

2017-04-18 16:24:39
idc about your noob opinions of his play. Cheats or no cheats he's very good at the game and a very skilled player. If you think he's braindead you're retarded lmao.

Sometimes your first impression of someone from a match turns out to be wrong. I played some games with/against Anj like half a year/year ago and I thought he was completely braindead, then he becomes the mvp at cph games this year after a very solid performance. First impressions are very often flawed.
2017-04-18 16:32:58
A game? I've played 50+ games with and against Grande.
2017-04-18 16:39:39
Well then I guess we just disagree.

If you've played a lot against him and you still think he's not smart about the game then there's nothing i can write to make you think differently. Agree to disagree.
2017-04-18 16:50:22
Grande is cheating 100%, idk if he does it all the time but he toggled when I played with him on his "smurf". He didnt even try to hide it.
2017-04-18 22:16:47
Hmm, weird.. He just was on a bootcamp with his team AND played a decent LAN at copenhagen games.. Its ok, you're jealous of someone who is up and coming, wishing it was you..
2017-04-18 18:54:56
Stop being salty. MonsenDaB0t, Trøndelags største innavl.

Decent på LAN? Han leverte de 2 matchene de kjørte over det samme laget. 0.76 og 0.78 rating på resterende matchene. REAL DECENT PÅ LAN xD

haehae, 16-10 and 16-11, "kjørte over" that would be because he maybe had 54 kills over those maps, so YES, i would say he played a decent LAN :) Nice to know im famous btw, getting recognized and HLTV and such, cant say i know your nick :)
2017-04-18 21:35:12
If you looked at the stats you would see that the rest of the team actually performed those 2 matches against the trash team as well? Where was Grande the 2 matches they lost? Oh that's right almost getting outfragged by philip lala while radi and rosey tried to carry.

Playing 4 maps, winning 2 against the same team, in a QUALIFIER to the real tournament. NICE LAN performance.

"Nice to know im famous btw, getting recognized and HLTV and such, cant say i know your nick :)" Nah I just know a guy with autism when I see one. You're a pretty huge fanboi if you call that a decent LAN run. Should've gotten dragged from værdarn tel gardemoen straight down E6 just for uttering that.

2017-04-18 20:15:42
Cromen should ditch the Norwegian scene, too good for it. Would be cool seeing him in Epsilon or something. Could be a good replacement for draken. Mystic should also find a decent team. Polly might end up where he was before Norse just playing FPL and not getting a team. Becker will prolly join a mediocre norwegian team and zEVES will coach someone, not sure who.
2017-04-19 00:12:34
Isn't that a little pathetic? Never made pro so "ima coach people"?

Like seriously? fuck off zEVES, you ain't never gonna be good for any team, no matter the role.
