LeftoverZ come to life
A new Danish all-star team have been created under the name LeftoverZ with former members of Copenhagen Wolves, n!faculty and Reason.
Since Copenhagen Games came to an end, just a month ago, there has been a lot of activity in the top ranks of the Danish scene, with dignitas, Reason and ESC Gaming all undergoing changes, while 3DMAX called it quits.
Adding to this period of transfer madness is now the creation of a whole new team called LeftoverZ that look on paper capable of challenging dignitas for the throne in Denmark.
Nico in new Danish team
Finn "karrigan" Andersen, who made a U-turn on his decision to continue his career in a German team, is joined by two other players who were without a team, René "cajunb" Borg and Nicolaj "Nico" Jensen.
Making up the rest of LeftoverZ are two players who had only recently committed to other teams: Jacob "Pimp" Winneche, who comes from Reason, and Lukas "gla1ve" Rossander, joining in from ESC Gaming.
"I joined ESC because I wanted to play with aizy and my good friend crZy," Rossander told HLTV.org.
"When aizy left the team after less than a week after we had joined it, I felt my motivation drop. Since my motivation was really low at this point, I didn't see any future in the lineup anymore, and the players who were up for grabs weren't able to replace aizy.
"cajunb, Nico and karrigan were all teamless at this point and wanted to enjoy the summer season. Teaming up with them was the perfect opportunity for me to get to enjoy the summer as well, as I am not able to attend Dreamhack Summer anyway, and still have a team full of great players by the end of the season.
"We decided to go official with this team after I left ESC. We will have the time to both enjoy our summer and still practice some.
"I feel really motivated with my new team and I am sure we will be back stronger than ever when we start to practice a lot in august.
"After making this lineup, we decided to add a last talented player, who we know can both perform and add something to the team. Therefore we asked Pimp to be our last player, and he decided to join up with us."
LeftoverZ are currently searching for an organisation to represent, and the team can be reached by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. The team's lineup is the following:
Finn "karrigan" Andersen
René "cajunb" Borg
Nicolaj "Nico" Jensen
Jacob "Pimp" Winneche
