Reason change four players
Reason Gaming have announced that they have revamped their roster by changing a total of four players.
Reason had strongly been linked with roster changes since their 5th-8th place finish at Copenhagen Games as part of the traditional turmoil that affects the upper echelons of the Danish CS:GO scene after every big event.
With DreamHack Summer in mind, Reason have decided to part ways with every player except Nikolaj "EXR" Therkildsen, meaning that Michael "Friis" Jørgensen, Frederik "LOMME" Nielsen, Danni "smF" Dyg and Finn "karrigan" Andersen are nowhere to be seen.
While the first three have become inactive, Andersen is currently trying his luck with a new German team, HLTV.org has learned.
Pimp returns to activity in Reason Gaming
To replace the quartet, Reason signed ex-3DMAX trio Nichlas "Nille" Busk, Mathias "MSL" Lauridsen and Jacob "Pimp" Winneche, and raided ESC Gaming for Philip "aizy" Aistrup.
"It has been a terrible period over the last 3 weeks. Friis didn't have time to play, so we decided to find another player (MSL), then smF and LOMME decided to stop playing for a while, and karrigan said yes to another offer," Nikolaj "EXR" Therkildsen told Reason's website.
"It left me and MSL alone, and we decided to ask some of his former 3dmax teammates to make a squad. It went pretty well, and after a discussion about which org we should play under we decided to join Reason as we really wanted to play under the Reason Gaming name.
"I'm really glad to be playing with the former 3dmax guys - they are pretty cool, and we are today happy to announce a full lineup. A lineup with a lot of experience and some really good individual players. Hopefully we can make some good results in the future and play some big tournaments."
Reason Gaming now have the following team:
Nikolaj "EXR" Therkildsen
Nichlas "Nille" Busk
Mathias "MSL" Lauridsen
Jacob "Pimp" Winneche
Philip "aizy" Aistrup
