minet returns in Airwalkers
Former mTw talent Oliver "minet" Minet has formed a new team which includes other known players from the Scandinavian scene.
It was early this February that Oliver "minet" Minet, a former mTw player in the days CS 1.6, announced his return to competitive play in CS:GO. The player boasts illustrious finishes under his belt such as 1st place at DreamHack Summer 2010, 2nd place finishes at DreamHack Winter 2009 & 2010, and a 3rd place finish at IEM V.
minet has now officially announced a new project, featuring his Danish cohorts from back when he returned to CS:GO, Jack "wazorN" Henriksen and Morten "suraNga" Jensen. Joining the three players will be two other talents, the first being Danish Hemen "xanzir" Nawros who was last seen playing for CPLAY.
minet's Airwalkers brings in xanzir & MODDII
The fifth and final player will be none other than Swedish Andreas "MODDII" Fridh, who has experience playing with xanzir on a previous roster earlier this year. MODDII, himself a CS 1.6 household name, has had a turbulent history in CS:GO, ranging from stints on the early fnatic lineup to inactivity to playing on the Danish scene.
minet prepared a lengthy explanatory statement for HLTV.org in order to explain the team's formation:
"For some time now, suraNga, wazorN and I have been playing with various players and trying to "create" something that would have the potential for something great. We feel we've found it in xanzir & moddii, from the first second communication was spot on and creative ideas were overflowing. Everything harmonized pretty quickly - since our ideas of how to play this game and how to progress are quite similar.
And to do so we've recruited a well known face for us at least. He's been behind me since I played in PlayZeek and even when I was in mTw at WCG in L.A: Mostly known for his full time coaching at FullGaming in 1.6: MarcK, who will be assisting in our progress. Sury, waz and I are exclusively known from 1.6 whereas both moddii and xanzir have been actively playing in cs:go and doing so well.
We're all very motivated with this project, especially our coach and we are currently practicing every day and all hunger for blood. We're are trying to reach out to various orgs, where we are looking for a long term relationship. We can be contacted at: email@example.com," Minet said.
The Airwalkers lineup is therefore as follows:
