Absolute Legends disband

Absolute Legends have announced that their CS:GO division has disbanded.

The Swedish team were recruited by Absolute Legends in October with hopes of establishing themselves as one of the top sides in Europe, but successive roster changes and disappointing LAN results prevented them from scaling great heights.

Since the start of the year, Absolute Legends had replaced Andreas "schneider" Lindberg and Jim "zneel" Andersson with Dennis "dennis" Edman and Olof "olofm" Kajbjer, and things seemed to be finally going their way as the team qualified for the group stage of RaidCall EMS One via the last cup.


pronax & co are now free agents

However, it has now been announced that the team have decided to call it quits, just days before they were expected to attend Copenhagen Games.

"We have been trying time and time again to fix people that wants to play and have the same mindset in terms on how much we want to achive as a team," Alexander "rdl" Redl said.

"It's just too sad to keep on stumbling upon unprofessional players. We announce that we are putting this on ice for now, we might resurface later on, or not.

"Time will tell what happens. Just want to thank Tim and AL for all their efforts that they have made."

Contacted by HLTV.org. Redl stated that the team will still compete in EMS One, in which they will lock horns with ESC Gaming, k1ck and LDLC.com, but most likely as a mix team.

This means that there will be an extra vacant spot in the next ESEA Invite season. The Swedish team came in seventh place this season, with seven victories from 16 matches.

Absolute Legends had the following roster:

Sweden Markus "pronax" Wallsten
Sweden Jonathan "lidde" Lidgren
Sweden Alexander "rdl" Redl
Sweden Dennis "dennis" Edman
Sweden Olof "olofm" Kajbjer

G00D!

They were more than decent with their first line-up with zneel and even pita
2013-03-20 04:22
Im pretty sure Pita brought more to the table than just his skill, I would bank on him having some real leadership qualities and when he left it was like its just a team of players and no leaders. You really need a good mix to hold a stable team.

2013-03-20 02:49
They looked so promising during dreamhack winter, popping up out of nowhere after winning the BYOC, crushing alot of teams to finaly strand on a 3rd place.
2013-03-20 02:40
I think you are talking about lemondogs :)
2013-03-20 02:57
Well that was stupid. ... I feel Incredibly stupid.
2013-03-20 03:07

2013-03-20 03:10
Give the spot in ems to tempteam! They deserve it :-D
2013-03-20 10:49
Give the slot to western wolfs!
2013-03-20 03:25
Any info if aL will be picking up an existing team or making a new one. From what i have heard they offer a pretty good package.
2013-03-20 03:40
I doubt pronax will give up. But what do I know.
2013-03-20 04:06
I am not sure if they will pick up a new team or not. I hope they find a good and stable team, like you say they can offer a pretty good package.
2013-03-20 04:39
They won't pick up another team.
2013-03-20 07:42
What do you mean with "offer a pretty good package"? Sharing is caring.
2013-03-20 08:12
from my sources they offer quite nice conditions (equipment,salary,expenses etc) Not exactly sure what, and not prepared to offer what i think they are getting, but it sounds very competitive with most of the top teams and better than some teams that have arguably better rosters.
2013-03-20 09:27
Alright! Thanks :)
2013-03-20 09:30
This is currently under discussion, at this point we are not sure what we are going to do or how we are going to do it. An announcement will follow very soon.
2013-03-20 09:06
If you want to get something pre-written so it can go live asap, send me a PM and i'll point you in the right direction.
2013-03-20 09:28
Hi Gomez, sorry I didn't get back to you yesterday. I submitted my official statement on the aL stuff here: absolutelegends.net/news/display/2991/Ab.. In regards to what the future holds, you're welcome to PM me your Skype details and I'd be happy to tell you when and if we plan on releasing this information.
2013-03-21 14:05
So first Prospects, then Team X... I dunno, after all that controversy surrounding aL's SC2 and LoL divisions in January, I wonder if there's something bigger here that we're not aware of.
2013-03-20 05:21
What controversy?
2013-03-20 07:50
aL screwed their previous players on salaries n stuff I think
2013-03-20 08:13
Controversy was all it was, there was nothing more to it and the vast majority of it (If not all) was disproven. There's nothing bigger here. I can verify this.

2013-03-20 08:11

2013-03-20 09:22
very sad. what about them in EMS cup?
2013-03-20 09:23
pronax fyr73 pita delpan dennis gogogo
2013-03-20 09:32
Well, according to fragbite, it was Dennis that didn't wanted to go to CPH-games. I don't think will team up with him again.
2013-03-20 12:12
expected they have bad lineup and after zneel and pita retires they become random online team
2013-03-20 10:31
pita needs a new team with delpan :)
2013-03-20 10:26
This line-up. They could have achieved much with proper time and dedication given into practice.

Sad :(
2013-03-20 12:29
Kind of ashame, but at the same time I feel like aL was weaker as a team than they were if you just added up their individual skill player for player.. Maybe now there is some room in the Swedish scene for the formation of some new and stronger teams?
2013-03-20 12:35
Pronax Face Delpan Robban Pita
2013-03-20 12:53
