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:

Denmark Nikolaj "EXR" Therkildsen
Denmark Nichlas "Nille" Busk
Denmark Mathias "MSL" Lauridsen 
Denmark Jacob "Pimp" Winneche 
Denmark Philip "aizy" Aistrup

his last comments was like... i will go inactive, but wont stop playing, will be back soon.

So they were disappointed about their results as 3DMAX so they changed gla1ve for EXR?
2014-05-17 20:12
wow bad team really :D
2014-05-17 20:15
Not anything special in particular
2014-05-17 20:42
karrigan was good .. wish dey gave dem some more time :/
2014-05-17 20:15
nille.... didn't he just get banned for cheating and it got hushed down quite fast... probably will cheat in the future because he has no balls
2014-05-17 20:17
His account was hacked - he did not cheat.
2014-05-17 20:35
Sure sure, is this what they call damage control?
2014-05-17 20:59
You really think a player as well-known (and good) as Nille would be stupid enough to risk a situation where he would lose his entire career in CS because of cheats? I don't think anyone would be that stupid..
2014-05-17 21:02
thats like saying no professional athlete would take ability enhancing drugs because "they are good and well known" not even saying nille cheats, its just a fucking dumb argument to say "he cant cheat because hes good and well known" its actually beyond fucking stupid..
2014-05-17 21:21
Not saying he can't cheat and that he 100% doesn't cheat. I just think this community is waay too quick to judge players. He has given an explanation, which can be true, AND he has not been accusated in any other case than this, nor has he been playing like he's hacking, which makes it even more likely that he is telling the truth. I'm not saying he's 100% not cheating I'm just saying it's way too early to judge him.
2014-05-17 21:29
It's fucking obvious to anyone who knows anything that he did. Everyone is just keeping it quiet. It's very common among "good" players to have cheated in the past, many people will do it only to get in to the right "social" group in this scene.
2014-05-17 21:46
Nico has been playing very impressive lately and has not played suspiciously (imo at least). I really doubt he has been cheating lately, and I think you are too fast to judge. Innocent untill proven guilty..
2014-05-17 21:48
He was banned and changed his name 100times in steam after the ban in order not to get caught, still got caught and it's the same thing as nico playing good online. Sure bro your logic is impeccable.
2014-05-17 22:49
Nico has always been known as "Nico" in the professional scene.. Also, he has had some reasonably good offline performances
2014-05-17 22:57
So you opted to post nothing when you ran out of responses?
2014-05-17 23:05
I did answer, lol.. I, unfortunately, said Nico instead of Nille.. I obviously mean Nille ofc. :)
2014-05-18 00:41
At what point did Nille turn to Nico?
2014-05-17 23:10
At the point when he ran out of excuses.
2014-05-17 23:12
:D
2014-05-17 23:22
Lol sry.. I always confuse the two players :D
2014-05-18 00:35
well Nille is in the semi-pro scene for quite a while.I cant remember anyone who acused him for cheating :(.
2014-05-17 21:18
that is what u get with merging Cs 1.6 with Source in denmark. u get all the kiddies from Source that change teams like they change underwear...
2014-05-17 20:17
And you dont think the danish 1.6 teams did that? Where have u been the last 10 years? :/
2014-05-17 23:33
the 1.6 scene did that yes, but not as much as ATM.
