Harley "dsn" Örwall is according to rakaka.se on the edge of calling his retirement, the Dane Michael "Friis" Jørgensen is expected to take his place.
It has not been a walk on roses lately for the Swedish Counter-Strike team representing fnatic. The team most recently attended e-Stars Seoul, where they placed 7-8th, with a loss to WinFakt in the lower-bracket.
After the tournament exit, rakaka.se got a hold of Harley "dsn" Örwall for an interview, wherein he among other things mentioned that "maybe I'm too old. I'm not happy with my performance at all" and finished off by saying: "you can't play videogames all your life".
The Swedish tabloid website today bought a hot rumor, claiming Örwall has called his retirement, leaving fnatic, which has been his home since 2005.
While it might not come as a shocker that the 25-year-old has decided to retire, the rumor also state that a Dane will be filling Örwall's shoes. It is allegedly Michael "Friis" Jørgensen, who is going to join fnatic to replace Örwall.
It was only ten days ago that Jørgensen joined the Danish powerhouse mTw, where he replaced Alexander "ave" Holdt who had called in his retirement.
Has Örwall decided to retire? Will fnatic pick up Jørgensen? Has the tweet "Dead legend back in business!!!! <3", by Danny "zonic" Sørensen anything to do with the matter?
Stay tuned as we will update you on the case, once the rumor has either been slammed or confirmed by any of the involved parties.
DSN isnt even bad, hes doing his job in fnatic.
my gawd :(
Just stupid if he leaves,
if you read this DSN, dont do it man.
You´re not finished. Dont do the same mistake walle did.

he shouldn't say these words
first mouz and now fnatic is going for denmark players, i guess there r very few good organizations in denmark :(
and friis deserves to be in 1 of the top 5 teams...... he is really nice
They dont know what they are talking about, walle did a great mistake leaving SK.
Unless he was tired of playing. but i doubt that.

mTw: zonic trace minet arcadion ved1mak
infa 100000000 proc
mtw zonic trace minet karrigan and sunde :D
the "dead legend" description fits more to him, but I think that Sunde or mJe are more propable.
though Rakaka is usually right
It's sad to see a legend retiring but fnatic need some changes, Friiss would be really welcome, best awp atm imo.
top3 yeah but best awp? Dont think so. But a really strong awp for fnatic yes
markeloff is a very stable defensive awp user. sick reflex, doesnt miss too much shots.
delpan and friis is much more agressive, they move a lot and kill a lot (some impossible shots as well)
tho there arent any signifficant difference between theese players in therms of ingame knowledge and skill :D
there are igls with good tactics and they can kill(robban,zeus,etc.)carn is acting like a bot lately,and i will remind u the fact that carn has fail to make the new roster to adapt and get some chemistry , its not 100% his fault,but u cant say carn has more value then dsn ...
Post edited 2011-09-07 17:52:46
if carn was such a charismatic dude and could give his team wins only by stats,then why he lose???
p.s. bye bye WCG for fnatic =D
unless hpx or sunde come back (which is unlikely since he left cuz of the atmosphere in the team with minet & trace if I remember well), I can't see mTw becoming top3 anytime soon
Post edited 2011-09-07 17:08:12
tbh mje in mtw sounds pretty deadly to me :)
FYRR73 ou KHRYSTAL fnatic
I think Friss will prefer mTw
fnatic could pick karrigan
WHAT WITH FNATIC!?
WHAT WITH MTW!?
WHAT WITH CS!?
karrigan to mtw, cLy to mouz :)
Post edited 2011-09-07 17:08:58
we will miss u dsn
i'm not sure is there english version ;(
last time situation in fx is bad, orga doesn't have money for them and now they don't pay salaries and golden five are looking for new orga
it's why they had in last matches once tags like "AGAiN fx" and in last match against FF they hadn't tags
ok retires dsn but friss :O
one of the biggest legends of the game, conquered old school and new school
If dsn retired and friis goes to fnatic, mTw need a new player. Who?
reason for not joining fnatic is good with frndship with ESC members+ fnatic never approached him

+zone, hpx, spx, stagep, paddy, morf4r, zitic
anyway sunde/whimp/mje will return as you said
anyway I revised my list slightly because I can remember hpx playing recently and he played very decent, on the other hand, I didn't see mje play for quite a while
Post edited 2011-09-07 17:34:54
the people i listed are not likely to join mtw but would be fun to see them play again :)
MJE >>>>>> Friis
Hope to still see you in mixes in the future.
It's obvious that he can't use awp like before Delpan, he always missed the important shots but it looks he could stay in fnatic as a SPRAYER AND 2ND AWPER for one more year. His awp's still good but not enough for high levels.
cArn and dsn should retire together!
also, mTw should keep Friis!

Friis one hundred percent go to fnatic :] interesting situation to dsn want to end up with CS hmm..
GeT_RiGhT also bored in sk I think that lineup per month will be
Patrik "cArn" Sättermon
Rasmus "Gux" Ståhl
Faruk "pita" Pita
Michael "Friis" Jørgensen

tho i'm sure ave didnt quit the game just to make space for friis in mtw.
If you do not ave this is the best solution is karrigan.
Friis to fnatic
wtf??? sad joke?
fnatic organization might cancel their cs squad also...sad but it might happen
and new fnatic will be
My bet is they will do whatever they can to win one title, and I think they will set their sights on WCG most of everything and after WCG they will both retire, no matter the outcome.
and then I think we will see fnatic put the teams in the hands of whoever cArn chooses and that person will try and create what cArn did, another great fnatic team.
its no fnatic.
would be n1 for sure

dsn = counter-strike legend
also fnatic could try pick niko up, but i guess he would refuse again, because he wants to play with his old teammates from Lemondogs
But i think whimp is more titled to be called "legend" :) Also Sunde was the best player of 2008,so who knows :)
Post edited 2011-09-07 17:55:44
FX R.I.P ?:o
-few german top players
-more players, that i dont remember :D
now neo will leave (with mates) frag executors - no money, and if they will not find new 'house' in one month, neo will retire CS too, in next year f0rest will retire, and it will be end of counter-strike professional gaming :)
2012 CS [*]
edit: esc>fnatic now and moddii isnt stupid :D so x -- fnatic if dsn retires.
Post edited 2011-09-07 18:04:42
DONT LEAVE CS NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO !!!!
It would be to great see old mtw with trace as 5th. They would do much better than current mtw.
Would be the best mTw lineup, that will never happen.
and i hope that carn-dsn-leave
the best imo but It won't happen so +MJE
They should pick someone from Lions.
And probably Sunde back, I wouldn't call mje or whimp a legend.
SUNDE or mJe is back!
fnatic assembling ´12 wonderhouse
pita follows with dsn, while cArn is still considering to pull back as team manager.
craft1k is awaiting cArns decision
Neo is fed up with org changes and unbalanced results and pending offer from fnatic is tempting..
Fnatic plans massive 2012 season with
Friis - AWP
Xizt - pistol/madfrager
craft1k - ingame leader
Neo - madfragger
Gux - little madfragger

and right descision, right age to leave cs and concentrate on future path
and finished off by saying: "you can't play videogames all your life".
lol when will i realize this :D:D
sad to see dsn leave he was doing good..
and forest-GTR back

-dsn [TO WIN]!
let's see what really happens
for me friis is not the best sucesor
If they let trace back to awp, they are shit again.
Post edited 2011-09-07 19:17:00
What im tryng to say is that both teams will be better if they dont change anything at all. friis should be playing with mtw imo.

Danny "zonic" Sørensen "
Statement Michael "Friis" Friis
" I am really happy to have been givin the opportunity to play with one of the best teams in the World. I will do everything I can to prove that they have chosen the right person and hopefully I can be a part of a team winning a lot of tournaments again! "
I doubt any "dead" legend will get his form back in time :(.. I hope so at least.
not bad but need stronger team
- carn and pita
and add moddii threat
ur luck wasnt that good in a few matches thats it
Dont pick up Friis,mTw needs Friis lol
SK Gaming - GeT_RiGhT f0rest face Delpan RobbaN
Lions - FYRR73 kHRYSTAL niko threat zneel

Yeah guys, the 1.6 scene is dead, no good teams left.
Correct me If I'm wrong!
Good morning dsn
If dsn genuinely retires, fnatic needs to get rid of carn asap and get players from esc/lions.
pronax, moddii, gux + niko/fyrr73 & xizt/kalle
would be an amazing team
don't underestimate pita...pita > niko/fyrr73
pita, gux, carn, barbarr, moddii
Away the best oldschool player.

well, mb +friis in fnatic and sunde back for mtw
Sad but if that team won't start playing like they was in 2009 i think there could be another team called "Again" ;/
Too bad Harley left, he was the one who shined recently.
Nevertheless i wish Him best! Take care off yourself (hope he will still be close with the team).
that's my bet :p
Cuz Sunde is still playing. HPX is legend and he wasnt playing?
gl dsn if this is true
and wow friis!!
MJE or whiMp is back..i hope whiMp
Post edited 2011-09-07 20:54:00
and this fnatic lineup with a primary awper will be just as good as mTw imo
Like even if there are better replacements for him , but its not all about performance we need some drama in the Counterstrike scene ^^ ,
"Shit fnatic was super , now they are not at their best , can they pull their shit together ? , or fall"
I don't know but this stuff is kinda exciting , Also old school players are always fun to watch, specially for us the older players ,
'and yes i am 22 , but i don't expect my self watching cs games after 1-2 years from now ...'
So with all new young players , its just gonna be "This team won that team" its not gonna be "Fnatic won SK , or SK won Fnatic" it will just
be a new thing :p
LOL i wrote a lot forgive me xD
GO FOR IT FRIISSS

friis as a sub for dsn, dont think that anybody saw that coming, so unexpected
So,if rumors are true they will pick Sunde.
and if he left mTw , let Karriegan 2 take his seat
Anyway, you need to know that the fans never blamed you after a lost match. So, if you retire i wish you best of luck in your life, but think twice because we love you :)
I would like to share the info with you guys!
So you are the first to hear actually!
Ave will be back to play the NY qualifier on sunday, and after that we will have to discuss what will happen :)
Thanks for the support!!!!!"

Goodbye dsn, we will miss you indeed =( !
But this is a new page for fnatic, now they have the last chance to prove that their are still a top3 team.
DSN played quite decent in 2011, I see no reason for retiring due to his performance...
dsn is really an amazing player always.. gl :P
I don't think a player should continue to play for selfless reasons, i.e. to please fans. If this is is wish, then let him retire on top and rest after a long and glorious career.
GL with whatever you do dsn, you will always be a champ :]

We are very sad to announce today that our long-time sniper, friend and family member - Harley 'dsn' Orwall, will be retiring from competitive gaming.

and as fifth player i hope sunde will make his comeback to the cs scene or maybe whimp
and if not that so karrigan will be good either
