Hungary Axelboi

He signed to Apeks so he could help develop the Norwegian scene. He's on a 3 year deal with the team.

He's getting mad cash for it as well. The owner of Apeks is a multi-millionaire. I think it will work out well in the end, in 3 years he can make Norway into a CS nation to fear. Maybe Apeks could be a stable Top 20 team bringing young talent into the scene. But it's obviously not the best move for him, at least short-term. He could easily have joined any EU team with his talent and his value as a player, so like for his own career Apeks is probably a worse move. It depends on what his goals are. Not all players want to win a Major and nothing else, and this is pretty future-proof for him. In 4 years he'll probably either still be in the Norwegian scene or maybe even coaching a team, and he'll be set for basically the rest of his life. Looking at other players, like GuardiaN, there's not much future for him in the scene and he's not even 30 years old yet. So maybe in the long run, this is the best thing for him to do.

“He's getting mad cash for it as well. The owner of Apeks is a multi-millionaire.” Ofc the owner has millions but that doesnt mean jkaem is on a really expensive contract. Apeks is a tiny org ofc they are not paying salaries near what Astralis, mouz, ence, contact or any other tier 1/2 orgs are paying

Actually they are. He also had a pretty sizeable buyout from 100T, if they could afford that then they can afford a decent salary for him. Not saying he's paying them $30k/month like Astralis (so close to DJ) but it's not like he's not well off. Most likely a lot of other teams wanted to get him but he declined for Apeks, and without a doubt he's getting more than enough to live off. Even if his ONLY goal was to develop the Norwegian scene, he could have gone to Nordavind since they're a richer org. They should have been able to pay him a bigger salary. But instead, he went to Apeks, without a doubt because they were giving him a more representative salary. And just to clarify: I'm not saying the owner BECAME a millionaire after founding the Apeks org (which would, in the current esports climate, be impossible considering how unprofitable CS:GO is at the moment). He was a multi-millionaire before he founded the org, and considering the lack of sponsors in the team there has to be a lot of money invested in the org from him.

if he's saying yes to playing for a tier4 team based in Norway with no notable talents then it's a pretty clear indicator that he primarily wants to play in his home country while staying with family, friends etc. Solely based on my own opinion and perception, but I couldn't imagine apeks paying a huge buyout for 1 player while fielding 4 arguably irrelevant players. That would simply be money out the window

Playing in his home country is a motivation, but it's also a big deal. He has several reasons for going to Apeks. His agent spoke about the deal when he joined - it's the biggest deal in Norwegian CS history. Bigger than hallzerk, cromen, anyone you can think of.

It means he's got a higher deal value than Dignitas (big org about the size of Astralis). What I'm saying is that he's being paid at least $10-20k/month by Apeks. That's practically a fact.

Let's see a source on the fact. AFAIK tier4 orgs are not paying 20k a month to 1 player. Ofc im only speculating in opposition to you who's spitting practical facts eksde

APEKS needs to -Grusarn and -Nasty in order to achieve something. Nasty plays similarly to dobbo in GamerLegion which is really not suitable for pro, not even semi-pro scene. Grusarn at least has his moments sometimes but still not enough to be a pro.

I would probably +H4RR3 and +Tenzki (even though he is not norwegian), he's playing pretty good, also Danes and Norwegians can talk with one another as far as I know. And the buyout on both of these players wouldn't be that high. Or I would just +random FPL player.

Both players just signed for DIG and x6tence, so their buyouts will be fairly high. They had their shot at signing them but didn't take it.

elemeNt is my suggestion baka !!!!! Also #20, don't need an AWPer, unless Hallzerk/maracelious can go beast mode with rifle then there is no reason to add them, and in the long term it would just be a handicap on the team.

Not how it works, if you want this team to truly be tier 1 then it would 1. Need to important a foreign (probably Swedish) AWPer 2. Sign another rifler and generally stay away from AWPing, something to keep in mind is that all pro players are 'good' at AWPing, including ones that almost never AWP. So one of the players in this team could just pick up an AWP when he feels like it. GOAT elemeNt used to pick up the AWP from time to time.

true, i guess either one would work and marcelious is probably cheaper
2020-11-27 13:09
maracelious seems to have the same problem as hallzerk, against lesser teams he is a beast but against actual decent teams he becomes rather shit. In the state Norway is in it might be best to just not pick up a AWPer (from Norway at least) and go 5 rifles
2020-11-27 13:10

Or giving him time to evolve his game and learn how to play vs good teams. Rome wasnt built in a day and for example marcelious doesnt exactly get the chans to play vs good teams often enough to make the transition go quickly.

He has been playing professionally since 2017, he seems to be a decent tier 2 AWPer but collapses against tier 1, much like hallzerk. For a comparison, 3 months into KennyS' career and he was picked up by a top team, and in less than a year into GuardiaN's Source career he was picked up by a top team, and in just over a year he was picked up by Na Vi when he went to CS:GO. Players who have lots of potential and can compete at the top level tend to be recognized rather quickly, I doubt he will ever become a tier 1 AWPer, but I'd be glad to be proven wrong.

I agree, Hallzerk has name but he hasn't convinced me. Always outgunned by the opposing team awper. jkaem and Rain and some young guns would be more than a decent team.
2020-11-27 13:08
Naah, would have to be sweden+norway to have a chance at a decent team. You could fix dignitas with dennis and jkaem tho, hallzerk is already there. -H4RR3 -HEAP F0rest Hallzerk Dennis Jkaem Friberg (need an igl after all) You could argue to keep HEAP, but that would have to be in the place of forest, right now they are performing similarly but heap is a young talent and will only get better whereas forest well, the time will finally catch up with him

2020-11-27 12:34
Current Apeks with -nasty +rain, is probably the best they can have.
2020-11-27 12:42
People saying rubino and cromen really havent been following the norwegian scene the last 6-12 months. The best norwegian lineup would probably be jkaem, rain, grus, hallzerk and H4RR3/truth. Jkaem cause of skills and experience, rain cause of skills and experience, grus with the aim and entry, hallz is by far the best awper in Norway and the last piece I am a bit unsure of - Maybe Radifaction would also work but I guess since radifact and truth have been kicked from Apeks it didnt really work out or they have other issues. What they really need though is a good IGL or coach. I feel that norwegian teams really lack in strategy, discipline and decision making.

That is the plan of Apeks, to become a superteam. There's a couple options but here's my suggestion: Dennis Jkaem Rain Cromen Marcelious | Polly (Coach) There could be better players instead of Cromen, and arguably Hallzerk is better than Marcelious, but this seems the most likely of any Norwegian 'superteam'
