3DMAX change raalz for Nille
3DMAX have replaced Rasmus "raalz" Steensborg with Nichlas "Nille" Busk, the team has revealed on their website.
The team has been together in the same lineup since their n!faculty journey, but they haven't been too successful on LAN events.
They qualified for EMS One Katowice as one of the last two teams from the lower bracket of the European Finals. In Poland though, they weren't able to advance from groups following losses to NiP and LDLC.com.
Pimp and gla1ve reunite with Nille
In Fnatic FragOut League, the story was not any different, as they lost two matches in a row, to LGB in the upper bracket, followed by a HellRaisers loss before crashing out.
After an unsuccessful route, Steensborg has decided to step down for Busk, who has been playing with some of the players before in a Western Wolves squad.
"So after a really disappointing EMS, mainly because we lost a match we should have won, we went back home and decided to continue with this project as we agreed from the start.
A few days ago Raalz said that he no longer felt like playing CS on a high level. He didn't wanna spend the time that was needed for this project to become good. Therefore we sadly enough have to part away with Raalz today." Winneche told HLTV.org.
"That forced us to look around for a new player. It quickly became clear who we wanted and therefore we are once again playing with an old and loved mate in form of Nille. He played with MSL, gla1ve and I in Western Wolves and we hope that this change can bring us up another level once again.
We part away with Raalz on good terms, he was honest with us and didn't want to waste our time, and at the same time we got a perfect replacement!"
With the change in effect, the lineup looks as follows:
Nichlas "Nille" Busk
Jacob "Pimp" Winneche
Philip "aizy" Aistrup
Lukas "gla1ve" Rossander
Mathias "MSL" Lauridsen
3DMAX will be attending Copenhagen Games on April 16th-20th, which will be their debut with Busk in the roster.
