LGB add twist and cype

February 11th, 2014 19:34

LGB eSports have removed Mikail "eksem" Bill and Alexander "SKYTTEN" Carlsson in favor of SK Gaming duo Simon "twist" Eliasson and Isak "cype" Rydman.

LGB eSports first broke out as a potential contender at DreamHack Winter, where they finished 5-8th after wins versus Na`Vi and Clan-Mystik, and a map win against NiP.

After DreamHack they placed second at Svecup Grand Final 2013 behind NiP, once again after taking a map from the Ninjas and overall after a much closer 1-2 series.

twist leaves SK to join LGB

The squad's most recent official match came in December, when they bested fnatic in FACEIT's monthly finals, thanks to a monster performance by then stand-in Eliasson.

Now the team has decided to part ways with two of its members, in order to bring in Eliasson and his SK Gaming teammate Rydman, a duo who also played together in LD.

"We are pleased to announce a new chapter starting in LGB in form of two new players joining our CS:GO ranks." Kevin "Kevz" Mikkelsen, manager of LGB eSports said in a statement.

"It is always sad to see great players leave, but despite the results, the team felt they could not evolve their gameplay any further, and that led to a mutual agreement between players and LGB eSports on letting Maikel “eksem” Bill and Alexander “SKYTTEN” Carlsson, follow another road.

"To cover the loss of two great players we want to welcome Isak “cype” Rydman and Simon “twist” Eliasson into LGB eSports.

"We want to thank Maikel and Alex for the amazing journey we had together and wish them the best of luck in the future.

In addition, a big thanks all of our sponsors Xtrfy, Gunnar Glasses, Crucial, MaxFPS and Orcbite and our fans for their continuous support."

Rydman expressed his joy about joining the new team in a statement of his own:

"We're really happy to be here and we feel comfortable about this new lineup.

We are really looking forward to the upcoming tournaments and we think we will be able
to achieve some good results.

A Big thanks to LGB eSports, Xtrfy, Gunnar Glasses, Crucial, MaxFPS and Orcbite for their support."

LGB eSports:

Sweden Isak "cype" Rydman
Sweden Dennis "dennis" Edman
Sweden Freddy "KRiMZ" Johansson
Sweden Olof "olofm" Kajbjer
Sweden Simon "twist" Eliasson

LGB eSports will next be on show in Fnatic FragOut League 3, set to start this week. They will also participate in EMS One Katowice's $250,000 tournament on March 13-16.

Yeah :( they added a great duo but lost one aswell, esp skytten was insane. and it seemed to mesh really well ingame eith the old squad, so wonsering why they switched. Then again, if you can get your hands on twist...
2014-02-11 19:44
yeah. I think problems with DDoS eksem was crucial for him, anyway i still want this team to come high spots

2014-02-12 15:47
SK will drop the line.
2014-02-11 21:02
A shame they overlooked the rule that says its illegal to have olof and twist in the same team.. would have been a great lineup.

I thought there was a rule that you can't switch between two qualifying teams or something. Then I realized SK didn't even qualify and understood that it's a joke, which was obvious when i re-read his post. (and there's obviously no rule about this, I just assumed since he said it was ilegall. That's why I was pretty surprised).

Hopefully not. Don't want them to fall so hard (,_.)
2014-02-11 20:06
yup. But I don't see where they can find a spot, unless they start something up or go to "lower" teams.

Delpan/pyth better than cype......but he is not bad xD
2014-02-11 19:41
If you take the old SK, then old LGB, Delpan was the worst player among those. There still are about 10 players in Sweden better than Delpan even if we exclude the current fnatic, NiP, LGB and rest of possible SK.
2014-02-11 21:08
Delpan & twist were the best 2 in SK....but the problem is that Delpan = Awper and LGB got dennis....
2014-02-11 23:20
Well we seem to disagree here and I'm fine with that.
2014-02-11 23:48
Mikail "eksim" Bill :D?
2014-02-11 19:41
risky move
2014-02-11 19:41
Top 5 no doubt, wouldn't be surprised if they take down nip and vg.

how can they drop "eksim" when they never had such a player as "eksim"?
2014-02-11 19:43
This team seems now really strong. All this time, LGB needed player like twist. Combination of olofm-dennis-twist looks now powerful LGB is top 2 in Sweden righ now, back of Fnatic.

on paper they are stronger than fnatic now. which obviously means they will go out very soon on FOO3.
2014-02-11 20:07
By your logic they are top1 now.. but calm down they are just top4. 1. Fnatic 2. Titan 3. NiP 4. LGB
2014-02-11 23:06
why the fuck titan > nip?????????????????????????????????
2014-02-12 08:04

talking rawskill they surely are better than fnatic, but as you should know theres way more... and the top 10 is very vague anyway, you could name atleast 15 times who deserve a topten spot..
2014-02-12 17:28
Fnatic is not the best team in the world, good joke though.
2014-02-17 06:30
top5 eu easy...
2014-02-11 20:08
hell yeahhh dopppe line upp!
2014-02-11 20:14
tell twist to start streaming again pls :D
2014-02-11 20:17
Skytten and eksem deserved better than this. Where do they go now? It feels like a hobo changed place with a rich person. And twist and cype was the hobos and Skytten and eksem were the rich guys. And it's now all opposite. Skytten and eksem are now the hobos. GJ kevvs!
2014-02-11 20:18
Actually twist and cype came from Sk so they were rich... They got richer and eksem and skytten lost their jobs so now they're hobos
2014-02-11 20:25
Idc if they were from sk, they didnt preform good as team. LGB was way better than SK. I talk about the performance of the team.
2014-02-11 20:29
They played katowice qualifiers with pyth, spitfire and lidde.
2014-02-11 20:26
whats your problem?They just felt team that team reached their max potential and changed 2 players?
2014-02-11 20:28
Am talking about kicking two players from a good team, and taking in 2 guys from a bad team.
2014-02-11 20:30
HAHAha taking 2 bad guys?Twist is probably one of the best players in sweden xD
2014-02-11 20:34
Bad team doesnt mean bad players....
2014-02-11 20:35
twist+olofm+dennis = unstoppable
2014-02-12 09:33
u got to be kidding
2014-02-11 20:32
What is your problem, why is it you blame me? :D You have absoulutely no clue what on earth you are talking about do you, you just write something and hope its correct?

2014-02-11 20:39
As you can see, in my comment you replied to, I, was describing how I was feeling sorry for eksem and skytten. For leaving sucha great and successfull team, and will probably joining Sk? People seem to, even you. Miss the point..
2014-02-11 20:47

people hating on cype should back off. he's a great player. a lot of times you see him topfragging even though he's a support player (and i think he's among the top5 supports in csgo atm) ...and no, i'm not from Source so you can see that i am objective here... and no, i don't want to hear any "jw best" jokes

2014-02-12 03:14
SK starts to fail when they kick cype for pyth, despite the fact that pyth was maaaad. It's obvious the apport of cype in a team. Plus, twist is better with his forever mate cype. GL HF LGB Esport.
2014-02-12 04:00
Hope for a SK line up with ... Delpan Moddi Zneel Khrystal and Pitta

2014-02-12 07:42
:( Hope that eksem and skytten will be finding a nice team. Though, in the long run this might benefit all parts. Dennis, olof and twist mad combo. gl guys.
2014-02-12 08:43
Now lgb will be better than NiP. =)

Not sure about this. I think its not that smart to destroy the old roster, which had an insany chemistry lately. Still, Twist is one of the best swedish players and im looking forward to see the new lu in officals.
