allu leaves 3DMAX; xartE joins

3DMAX have announced that Aleksi "allu" Jalli is no longer part of the team.

Aleksi "allu" Jalli has been playing for Ninjas in Pyjamas as a stand-in for the last week as the Swedish team seek a potential replacement for Mikail "Maikelele" Bill, citing a lack of top-flight experience from the former LGB member.

Earlier on Tuesday, the Finnish talent was seen tweeting from Sweden, and rumours quickly emerged that he was bootcamping with NiP ahead of ESL One Katowice.

And 3DMAX, who stressed last week that allu would stay on the team, have now announced that the player is no longer tied to the organisation, without, however, making any mention of NiP.


allu set to sign for NiP?

Meanwhile, 3DMAX announced that allu's spot will be filled by Menace's Mikko "xartE" Välimaa, who played for the team as a stand-in at the offline qualifier for ESL One Katowice earlier in the month.

3DMAX now have:

Finland Jesse "KHRN" Grandell
Finland Taneli "disturbed" Veikkola
Finland Joona "natu" Leppänen
Finland Tom "stonde" Glad

That is highly unlikely, since Swedes don't speak Finnish, its only the other way around. It would've been cool though if they decided to play in English and pick up Maikelele. There should be more international teams who play in English. I mean its 2015, like who doesn't speak any English in EU today? Come on'

Don't take it that way. :D I know that you are happy with that. There are just some of these stupid delpan/maikelele fanboys who are mad at allu because he "stole" their spots, even though we all know that allu is not guilty for that. It was core NiP who decided to kick maikelele and not to pick delpan after tryouts. So get over it and stop hating on allu, kids. And that 5for5 guy actually is Swedish. He's pretending that he's Russian and typing stupid shit with his main goal to calumniate Russia/Russians.

NiP nowadays remind me of SK in their last years of 1.6, when they were looking for that 5th player to carry them to World no.1 Anyway, I think that Maikelele had the potential to grow and become better, they just didn't give him the time. After all, the the first LAN that NiP had won in months was thanks to Maikelele's great play. I can't really remember the last lan they won thanks to Get_Right's great play though...
2015-02-24 19:12
They won ESL Cologne mostly because of GTR (atleast in the final) but I get your point. Maikelele is a great player. :)

As a finn and Allu fan I'm happy for this, but at the same time I feel bad for Maikelele. I think he was a good player and more than earned his place on the team, at least results-wise. That being said, I thought the way they expressed themselves and their explanation for potentially replacing Maikelele was a bit weird to say the least. Not experienced enough? Who gives a fuck about experience if you madfrag and carry the team to a LAN victory? I bet it had more to do with the chemistry between players or something like that, and NiP is just being sportsmanlike in their way of announcing things.

yeah all this politic bullshit just makes it seem like the other 4 NiP players are fanning out their losses on their new 5th. NiP probably sick of the old days of carrying a 5th player (Fifflaren) and don't intend to give the special treatment to their replacement to the extent that too much is on allu for this big LAN.

allu isn't one of the best snipers in CS and shouldn't be on one of the best teams. gl NiP you will need it.
