Swedish team duttdutt will not be making the trip to Copenhagen Games after all, André "keiz" Carlsson has confirmed.
The notorious Swedish mix-team duttdutt had signed up for Copenhagen Games quite some time ago and were placed in the medium seeding layer last week.
André "keiz" Carlsson has via his Facebook page announced that the team will not be attending after all.
"No trip to copenhagen after all.. Really sad because I know that we would roCk the shit of every team." - Reads his latest post on Facebook.
On March 20, Carlsson posted that only a sponsor deal held them from attending. The deal supposedly never went through and the team had to cancel.
The intended lineup was:
André "keiz" Carlsson
Manne "manne" Nordqvist
Markus "pronax" Wallsten
Dennis "dennis" Edman
Hugo "huggan" Lopez
This leaves one spot in the medium seeding layer. The organizers will allegedly move a team from the low seeding layer to comply the changes. The groups for Copenhagen Games will be drawn on Wednesday, and we will be on site to post them as soon as they have been drawn.

The point is that he made a joke. There's no need to jump in his throat for that. Sit down and relax.
Okay, I never intended to go this far with this chat, just got the idea to write the original post and did it, thats all. It gave some ppl a good laugh as you can see and that was my intention, has nothing to do with me playing CS. Cheers!
at least we know jonkkis and hes a pretty decent player.

And you have pretty high salaries etc and you definitely could afford the trip by yourselves.
You are more then happy to attend the event for free, but when you need to pay for yourselves you don't want to. What kinda team is that?
Maybe if your online guys could prove themselves on lan, sponsors wouldn't scam you or trick you in the 1st place, but that's just me.
And for the love of god, can you be more immature? I mean you are 20 years old right? And people call you a professional player? :D:D
A comeback like that to jonkkis. What the hell does his team have to do with anything? If you don't have a good argument or something, don't write shit back. So so unprofessional being a professional player and all.
But I'm guessing you still aren't a professional.
Prove yourself on LAN and maybe people will respect you and please grow up ;)

im waiting to see these guys on lan and then this happen.
pronax is the fourth best ingame leader we have atm and he have proved him self several times with different teams..
dennis had a chance in SK and did pretty well but not good enough but he wasnt worthless and he have been proven him self at serveral lan events in Sweden..
keiz had a chance in Lions and did a good job but ended up that zneel took his place instead and same with keiz as with dennis they have proven them self at serveral lan events in Sweden..
huggan i havent follow so much so i can't really say that much except that he have proven him self at serveral lan events just as keiz and dennis..
manne sure you can call him onliner just because he didn't do that well when he did make a *try out* for fnatic at Dreamhack..
He what i know have been at serveral lan events just as dennis, huggan, keiz with different teams and provend them selfs..
so PLEASE learn more about Swedish counter-strike before calling them onliners!
you're stating your opinion basically, what is shit for me.
they failed to guarantee their spot in good teams and gathered up to "roCk the shit of every team" @online.
the fact is they play better online than lan thats it! as we can see by the results
But who cares, I agree, nerves got him in SK but he is an excellent player.
nice joke keiz
Made my day.
On a sidenote. Is a train from Stockholm to Copenhagen really that expensive that they can't pay for a trip our of their own pockets? I mean there is a reasonable chance they'll make it out to the groups and make the money back.
And it just wasnt possible for us to go there without a sponsor, unfortunately.
sad that we won't see you back in action, but i was really looking forward to see manne's lan performance
And you need to pay for yourselves too and get a good place on lan, if you want sponsors to give you free trips etc, but you already know that, so I really wonder why you didn't think about it earlier etc ;)
I have probably spent a few 1000euros on different lans during my days playing cs. And i dont really mind doing it if i actually got the money to do it.
Ok let's sum this up, renting computer (135€), Hotel(Wandering home) (40€ per night), Flight (50€) and the entrance fee.
The only reason why you guys can't afford it is because some of you don't have a full-time/part-time job. For example you pronax, as I've heard, is still in the high school (even tho you were supposed to graduate 2010).
Dennis is accordingly to him working part-time as a constructor, which I don't believe in(Since he has shared alot info about his personal background) . Keiz is probably working at some random place. Manne is probably studying or w/e.
Huggan is a student and Pronax aswell. This cost would have costed about 500€ per person. (Which is easy to get if you work 2 days per week). Can't be easy to not be workin'
And as a reply to wokey; 5000SEK is nothing for a guy who works full-time(It is kinda small). But the part about students is the reason why they don't have the €€€ for it :)
And Sweden do have high salaries, I had as what I thought was a high salary but I looked at other alternatives and saw that 22000SEK before tax, working 87% was a lot :D

And i actually think that 5000sek is quite alot, atleast for me.
I was finished 2010, and many others borned 1991 was done that year aswell. (I'm at the same age as you)
Missing 2 years of your life must be one hell of an anxiety :)

The best line-up of the event if we only look at prospects. All of them have fun playstyle and lot of skill.
