zanoj, xone in OMNIPOTENCE
Danish players Jonas 'zanoj' Velling and Peter 'xone' Scheel have gathered together a lineup which seeks to do some damage on the European CS:GO scene.
After mixed success, not much was heard from zanoj until earlier this year at Copenhagen Games 2015, when his no_rhythm managed to take down Tobias "Troubley" Tabbert's MnM team in the first group stage.
Since then, the two players have been seeking a combination of Danish talent that would allow them to perform at a high level.

The players have now announced the completion of a new lineup, which will go by the name of OMNIPOTENCE until an organisation is found:
The remaining two players, PedmaN and Allan 'AnJ' Jensen, are somewhat lesser known, popping up sporadically on Danish mix teams and they have also been linked in lineups with the other players in OMNIPOTENCE before.
In a statement to HLTV.org, zanoj shed some light on the team's background and motivations:
"xone and I have been looking for some raw talent to bring in the firepower needed to compete at the level we want to reach. In the addition of PedmaN and AnJ, we chose to bring in SYNDICATE who has a lot of experience from his many years of Counter-Strike. From day 1 this team just harmonized and the overall chemistry when we play is one of the best we have yet to experience.
We are certain of how to evolve as a team and we want to bring a unique playing style into the game, plus we have the passion and the motivation to push this project into something amazing.
We're learning everyday and we're improving after every match. Now we're ready to go official and are currently reaching out to various organizations for a long-term cooperation. We can be contacted at: OMNIPOTENCE@jihoon.dk"
OMNIPOTENCE are currently enroled in ESEA Open and have plans to compete in more leagues as well.
The resurgence of Danish players from olden times has been a recurring theme recently and a sign of consolidation and strength in the Danish scene.
