ASUS ROG Nordic Challenge teams list

The eight teams battling it out for $10,000 at the ASUS ROG Nordic Challenge in Helsinki, Finland are now known.

Taking place from October 30-November 1, in the same weekend as the next CS:GO major, the ASUS ROG Nordic Challenge will bring eight teams to the DigiExpo in Helsinki, Finland for a shot of the $10,000 prize-pool.

Seven teams of the eight have received direct invites to the event, while one team came through a Finnish national qualifier that featured 64 teams and played out this past weekend on October 11th.


Dosia to attend ASUS ROG Nordic Challenge in a Nostalgie mix

The official teams list for the event, including lineups, is therefore:

Nostalgie MIXCAT
Russia Alexey "⁠OverDrive⁠" Birukov  Finland Taneli "⁠disturbed⁠" Veikkola
Russia Mihail "⁠Dosia⁠" Stolyarov Finland Mikko "⁠xartE⁠" Välimaa

DenDD Torpedo

Bosnia and Herzegovina Benjamin "⁠BENDJI⁠" Söderena Sweden Joachim "⁠darti⁠" Fornstedt
Sweden Robin "⁠robiin⁠" Sjögren Sweden John "⁠Awien⁠" Waltersson
Sweden Erik "⁠zende⁠" Sundeqvist Sweden William "⁠tease⁠" Sid
Bosnia and Herzegovina Miran "⁠dumz⁠" Matković Sweden Simon "⁠atter⁠" Atterstam
Space Soldiers BX3
Turkey Tugay "⁠TuGuX⁠" Keskin Norway Anders "⁠aNdz⁠" Kjær

Turkey Emre "⁠e1⁠" Biçer Norway Adam "⁠PAINT⁠" Fjellum
Turkey Cihan "⁠ONLY⁠" Gönek Norway Kristian "⁠KORN⁠" Hokland
RCTIC ajuri (Qualified team)
Finland Slaava "⁠Twista⁠" Räsänen Finland Joona "⁠joona⁠" Puumalainen
Finland Eetu "⁠sAw⁠" Saha Finland Jesse "⁠zehN⁠" Linjala
Finland Saku "⁠SAGGERTON⁠" Jokinen Finland Jani "⁠shed⁠" Marjanen
Finland Lasse "⁠ZOREE⁠" Uronen Finland Jimi "⁠pnarek⁠" Nieminen
Finland Sami "⁠xseveN⁠" Laasanen Finland Kasperi "⁠qiini⁠" Leppanen

A number of eyebrow raising attendees will be at ASUS ROG Nordic Challenge, including ex-HellRaisers member Dosia playing with former teammates in a Nostalgie mix as well as twist (technically still with Copenhagen Wolves) playing in the Swedish DenDD mix.

disturbed will come out of retirement to play with MIXCAT and Turkey's Space Soldiers will attend, which will no doubt put XANTARES' strong rating on our site to the test.

The event will be covered by an English off-site stream via NiPgamingTV as well as on-site in Finnish by Teemu “wabbit” Hiilinen and Juha “aNGeldusT” Kurppa.

*UPDATE*: Torpedo will be attending the event in London Conspiracy's stead.
