ASUS ROG Nordic teams update

A few more team changes have taken place ahead of ASUS ROG's $10,000 Nordic Challenge in Helsinki, Finland this weekend.

The teams list (along with lineups) for the $10,000 ASUS ROG Nordic Challenge taking place in Helsinki, Finland on the weekend of October 30-November 1 was announced earlier this month.

Since then, a few teams have confirmed being unable to attend as well as a few lineups shuffling their rosters up for the event. In particular the Turkish Space Soldiers team have been replaced by the Finns of SkitLite whereas DenDD have been replaced by Publiclir.se.


wayLander is purported to attend the Nordic Challenge

The revised teams list for this weekend's event is: 

HS.GG MIXCAT
Finland Jan "wayLander" Rahkonen  Finland Taneli "disturbed" Veikkola
Russia Mihail "Dosia" Stolyarov Finland Mikko "xartE" Välimaa
Russia Dmitry "hooch" Bogdanov Finland Tom "stonde" Glad
Denmark Jakob "JUGi" Hansen Finland Juho "juho" Lampinen
Denmark Kristian "k0nfig" Wienecke Finland Miikka "suNny" Kemppi
Publiclir.se Torpedo
Sweden Max "quix" Lindkvist Sweden Samuel "decent" Oldenburg
Sweden Aleksandar "jayzaR" Zarkovic Sweden Joachim "darti" Fornstedt
Sweden Alexander "dejvin" Nyqvist Sweden David "Blote" Ekdahl
Sweden Jonas "Lekr0" Olofsson Sweden William "tease" Sid
Sweden Daniel "DomiNate" Garcia Sweden Simon "atter" Atterstam
SkitLite BX3
Finland Olli "sLowi" Pitkänen Norway Anders "aNdz" Kjær
Finland Toni "STOVVE" Liukkonen Norway Jon "DaY" Thomas Rudstrøm
Finland Jyri "JALLU" Tenhunen Norway Christian "moen" Moen
Finland Roope "tomsku" Simpanen Norway Adam "PAINT" Fjellum
Finland Markus "shaker" Pyysalo 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

Easily the most interesting switch-up of players involves the Nostalgie lineup (now going under HS.GG) which has swapped out a number of former and current HellRaisers players for Danes k0nfig and JUGi alongside Finn wayLander, who stepped down from competitive play in June to complete his military service.

The Nordic Challenge will go live at the DigiExpo in Helsinki, Finland on October 30th. 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.
