Maikelele joins LGB

LGB eSports have announced that Mikail "Maikelele" Bill has joined the team.

The moves comes in the aftermath of LGB's group stage exit at ESL One Katowice, where many expected the Norwegian team to be the tournament's dark horse.

Despite getting off on the right foot in Poland, with a 16-3 thrashing of PENTA Sports, LGB were still knocked out in the group stage following a 8-16 defeat against EnVyUs and a 12-16 loss against the German side.

Mikail "Maikelele" Bill, who was out of action after being benched by Ninjas in Pyjamas last month, has now been given the chance to return to activity in an organisation he knows from the inside out as he was part of the Swedish LGB squad reached the top eight at DreamHack Winter 2013.


Maikelele to wear LGB's shirt again 

He will step into the shoes of Morten "zEVES" Vollan, whose future remains unclear for the moment.

"I’m happy to announce that I will play as a stand-in (trial) for the organisation I once represented and created," Bill said in a statement.

"LGB eSports is my roots and it will be fun to play for the amazing brand that have been one of the most known names of all names.

"I can’t say anything about the future but I can say that if this works out, I can see a great future with these guys, they have a lot of potential to become a really good team."

Ninjas in Pyjamas have not yet commented on Maikelele's situation, but a statement from LGB refers to him as a "former NiP player", which could mean that the Swedish AWPer has been released from his contract with the ESL One Katowice runners-up.

LGB eSports, who will attend Copenhagen Games next month, now have:

Norway Ruben "RUBINO" Villarroel
Norway Håvard "rain" Nygaard
Norway Joakim "jkaem" Myrbostad
Norway Pål "Polly" Kammen
Sweden Mikail "Maikelele" Bill (stand-in)

its pretty easy to communicate between swedish and norwegian in cs-terms tbh. :)
2015-03-18 18:45
Well, not really. You can easily write to eachother, but it can be hard to understand eachother if you speak. But they can figure it out.
2015-03-18 18:54
you can speak swedish to a norweigan person and he'll understand it
2015-03-18 18:45
swedish and norwegian are very close
2015-03-18 18:45
Norwegian and swedish is very similar, we can communicate mostly without problems :)
2015-03-18 18:45
norwegian and swedish is basically the same lanuage, with some twist's here and there
2015-03-18 18:45
Like ninjas and allu
2015-03-18 18:46
not really, finnish is far from danish, swedish and norwegian :-D Finnish is like estonian. Allu speaks some swedish tho, cause they learn it in school ;d

2015-03-18 19:08
nah, finnish is like estonian
2015-03-18 21:19
Both Finnish and Estonian belong into Uralic languages with the closest language being actually Hungarian (and Sami, which is more or less rare). en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Finnish_language en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uralic_languages tldr; Finnish indeed has NOTHING to do with swedish, danish or norwegian languages.
2015-03-18 21:43
sorry sorry, didn't mean which way it originated. Just that they are alike, but nothing like swedish, danish og norwegian

why did you reply me ? :D
2015-03-19 15:09
no, finnish has different roots from swedish and it doesn't automatically mean that if you know finish or swedish you will somewhat understand the other. Allu knowing a little sweadish is only due to the fact that thoes countries are close and people travel between them alot.
2015-03-18 18:49
You qre very wrong here, some finns do know swedish cause they learn it in school. But sweds srsly have no idea what finns says, it's not even germanic.
2015-03-18 19:24
It's not even indoeuropean.
2015-03-19 07:26
Dude, we have like 10% of Helsinki metropolia area that speak Swedish as their native tongue. We have hundreds of cities in west cost in which Swedish speaking percentage is more then 50%. In those area Finnish only helps you to communicate, to say the least. You will hear Swedish spoken in Helsinki everywhere. Its not only that we learn it in school. Having said that, 80% can pretty much say 5-10 sentences in Swedish. Rest are educated ones that only study it school could hold up decent conversation + the ones that actually speak Swedish as their first language.
2015-03-18 21:15
I don't get it... WHY? Just speak Finnish ffs. Swedish is not an important language, English is important.
2015-03-19 00:16

so true. there is even a lead sentence "LGB eSports have announced that Mikail "Maikelele" Bill has joined the team." which is basically tl;dr
2015-03-18 19:49
There was only one sentence when I wrote it. It was sarcasm. Heard about it?
2015-03-20 15:48
I wonder what his facial expression would look like if some one showed him an actual book: "Look dude, some people enjoy reading these.."
2015-03-18 21:17
You cannot understand sarcasm? Dumb people is starting to get more and more dumb these days.
2015-03-20 15:48
Nice save attempt, retard. You have no clue what sarcasm means if that was your idea of it.
2015-03-20 19:42
The topic was "LGB eSports have announced that Mikail "Maikelele" Bill has joined the team. More to come.." I dont know who's the retard here.

2015-03-18 18:39
Polly used to be the in-game leader for London Conspiracy, which didn't allow him to awp that much. With Maikelele in the team, Polly will be the in-game leader again, and Maikelele will probably be a 50/50 awper/rifler like olofmeister. =D
2015-03-18 19:02
Sounds like a pretty sweet setup Olofmeister's role as a secondary awper/rifler is so underrated. Who will be replaced though?

Good Luck

nowadays a team need an IGL that can be a madfragger when needed (happy, pronax for ex), the guy who's just calling and duying every round is kinda useless, dont you think?
2015-03-18 18:44
Happy is an igl who is mad fragger. But if u are a mad fragger,you will not become a good igl suddenly. How will lgb get an igl now,because none of those 5 are igl material.
2015-03-18 18:47
#134
 | 
Denmark jjh 
you're right, but my point still stands: the guy who's just calling and dying every round is useless, they didnt succeed with this, so they're trying smth new. the time will show, dont think it will make the team worse.
2015-03-18 18:49
well pronax and ex6tenz are kind of the same...pronax has played well recently.But normally he and x6tenz pretty much do nothing.
2015-03-18 18:50
#154
 | 
Denmark jjh 
can agree about ex6, but not pronax, he rarely plays 'really bad', he may be bottom fragging most of the time but it's just because everyone else on fnatic is a beast. and anyway they manage to be the best team in the world with the way pronax is performing, so there's no problem.
2015-03-18 18:52
idk, Polly has some igl experience, but his rifling skills are not that impressive, I guess they might go for CT double awp setups now but I can't really see them executing it well.

He can,but if u watch the Dignitas aligon game,you will see how dignitas play without Fetish,0 strats running around on T side.
2015-03-18 18:52
it doesn't mean that they haven't igl they have pimp but overall danish scene's T side is fucked up look at TSM Duprreh is 2nd rank in CT side and device 4th... They are best CT side after fnatic still not in TOP 4 why? coz T side is very bad and it applies to whole danish scene...

When I listened to the POV's from Katowice, I was surprised of how little I heard Zeves' voice. It was always Rubino calling things.
2015-03-18 18:58
well rubino and polly could do the job, also they are way better rifflers than zeves... he is a bit inconsistent (IMO)
2015-03-18 20:38

Makes no sense to switch out the ingame leader which had most of the impact on your recent success, and change back to the same ingame leader which you didn't have a lot of success with (assuming Polly will take over the role)

Interesting, I've been thinking about the possibility of maikelele joining the norwegians, but i always assumed it would be Polly who would be leaving, seeing as they are both AWP'ers, and zEVES is the igl. This is a fucking sick skilled team though, rain,jkaem and maikelele together? Jesus. Kinda reminds me of the old ESC Nor/Swe team in 1.6, i loved that team. (moddii,kalle,tacky,pronax,barbarr)

maikel is going to play as secondary awper like olof on fnatic, he said on stream started to play awp just on march 2014 i think is pretty impressive how good he become in so less months. He will play more riffle than awp on LBG that's why Polly is still on team
2015-03-18 23:00
Yeah and he's a good rifler aswell wich he didn't really get to prove in NiP since they picked him up as an awper.

2015-03-18 19:03
No. Norwegian and Swedish.. It's called Svorsk where you speak Norwegian with some Swedish words to make it more easily comprehensible. But no Norwegian ever has any issues understanding Swedish, just some other way around with Swedes understanding us. But with some svorsk it's easy. All of the Norwegian LGB guys are already playing with Swedes all day anyway, like the Fnatic guys, always speaking a mix of the two languages :)

2015-03-18 19:06
he is brilliant ingame leader, bad move.
2015-03-18 19:09
It seems to be the trend that fanboys believe that poor performance as a fragger is inversely proportional to performance as an IGL. "Player X went 2-25 in that game they lost 14-16, but if it has not been for his outstanding tactical acumen, they would have lost 4-16!"

When this team is on, no one can stop them!
2015-03-18 20:00
OK, to explain why this makes sense to all: LGB and NiP is owned by the same people with mostly the same management and therefore moving Maikel over to their other team makes sense since they still have some control over him with contracts and such. This way they don't have to let go of him completely or actually release him from NiP contract if he is still bound to that one - don't know if he is anymore though. Been telling them to do this for a while, stoked to see it happen!! A bit unsure about one thing though - I think Maikel might have to move to Norway now or travel back and forth all the time if he wants to attend the national LAN league that LGB are attending (being aired on national TV). Also funny that Maikel instantly brushed this off as a possibility on stream two weeks ago, even using a mocking or ridiculuing tone in replying to my question :DD Someone hook him up with some Norwegian pussy so he wants to stay please.
2015-03-18 20:00
can confirm, came here to say this
2015-03-18 20:09
it's a conspiracy
2015-03-18 20:23
Didn't think about the whole situation with the Altibox-league. Do they really fly in maikelele from Sweden to play a bo1 against som mediocre norwegian teams? Highly doubt that lol. Maybe they will get prb to stand-in or something like that.
2015-03-19 00:35

2015-03-18 20:10
Maike gonna show everyone that he is the best :)
2015-03-18 20:11
2 awp setup with polly now? Or Maikelele will be awper and polly go to IGL-rifler? Since they said than when he was the IGL, awping was a lot more difficult to him and had problems to be focused
2015-03-18 20:17
polly will be 2nd awp offcourse
2015-03-18 20:32
Polly is better man. Gonna be sad to watch whiffelele awp over him..
2015-03-18 21:41
Great news
2015-03-18 20:17
PS, if this team doesn't work out well enough for consistent top 10 either, here's one thing that will: -Polly +Centryz with RUBINO as the IGL (he is the current IGL in this lineup, too). Centryz couldn't join inititally from what I understand because of some serious beef with Zeves. But he's gone now anyway. Hope this will do though, but can't help but think they're even better off with another rifler.

this is an upgrade for LGB but maikelele still in contract with NiP right?
2015-03-18 21:01
maybe, i'm not sure. but regardless, lgb and nip have the same owners so if there's one team they would let him join or even push him towards joining, it's lgb.
2015-03-18 21:40
so whos the igl now? gtfo maikelele btw
2015-03-18 21:06
rubino is the igl now. he was already doing a majority of the calling at katowice from what i heard on the POV streams, meaning that zeves just isn't worth having on the team in that last slot then if he isn't doing a majority of the leading to compensate for his much worse ratings than the rest. this is definitely a much stronger team now. if rubino can lead well and polly either play consistent or gradually get replaced by the likes of centryz, this is a top 10 team.
2015-03-18 21:42
why put centryz in a strong lineup like this? he lacks tons of experience on a high lvl.
2015-03-18 22:43
Looking forward to CPH games :D

why zeves left? i don't want that misslele on the only team i like god damn, me and my luck
2015-03-18 21:18
zeves was kicked mate. his ratings weren't good enough even though i really think he contributed a lot tactically. rubino will be the igl now and judging from the pov streams from katowice he was already doing a lot of the leading, with zeves then being too much of a dead weight. this will for sure help lgb to another level as they have some insane, insane entryfragging power now. maikel + rain + jkaem entryfragging on t side as well as aggro ct pushes = fnatic JR

No its not. Swedish and norwegians language is alot alike (cuz we were in union with them for 200yrs) And LGB is run by the same organisation that runs Nip
2015-03-19 15:30
Maikelele will be 50/50 awp/rifle like olofmeister, and Polly will be main awp. And what's weird with a Swede with 4 Norwegians? That's like a British guy with 4 Americans, same language, slightly different accent. And Maikelele is not under the NIP contract anymore. zEVES was the IGL but he was simply underperforming and not fragging as much as he should have been. Everyone has bad days from time to time, but he just wasn't doing enough. Some IGLs can frag like crazy, nV Happy for example. Bringing in Maikelele was a good choice.
2015-03-19 15:54
