North Academy sign sycrone

North Academy have confirmed the signing of Dennis "sycrone" Nielsen, formerly of Fragsters.

Just a couple of days ago, North Academy announced that they were parting ways Frederik "LOMME" Nielsen and Nicolai "glace" Jensen, a duo that was a part of the squad since its inception. The change was a result of lacking results since the summer break, with 3-4th place finishes at both the Cross Border Esport LAN and the Binary Dragons Prestige LAN not satisfying the team.

After adding sycrone, North Academy are one player away from completing their roster

North Academy has now announced the acquisition of Dennis "sycrone" Nielsen who will play out the rest of the month for Fragsters—the team he was announced for just a couple of days ago—before completing the move to North Academy.

sycrone addressed the departure from his former team in his statement, which you can read in full in Danish at dust2.dk:

"Let me start by saying that it's not easy to just switch Fragsters with North Academy. But although Fragsters offer some amazing settings, and certainly will reach a high level, North Academy is a project I've dreamed of being a part of since the team was created. At North, every day is being built around being a professional athlete, and it is, to be honest, an opportunity I can't say no to."

North Academy is now:

Denmark Daniel "mertz" Mertz
Denmark Nicklas "gade" Gade
Denmark Frederik "acoR" Gyldstrand
Denmark Dennis "sycrone" Nielsen

Denmark Alexander "ave" Holdt (coach)

The team is expected to announce their last member soon and then have their LAN debut at the start of October, when they will attend the ~$18,000 NGC Masters 2017 alongside the likes of ALTERNATE aTTaX, MK and Tricked.

"North Academy is a project I've dreamed of being a part of since the team was created. " Nice dream, being part of an "Academy" team which will never promote you to the mainteam.
2017-09-27 21:52
Becoming a part of North Academy means he can play CS as a full time job. I think most people would say playing CS full time is a dream. North Academy is also a great place to develop with all the professional support they have from the biggest danish football club.
2017-09-28 08:28
ok a good point in this case. I didn´t know that fragsters had still amateur status.
2017-09-28 10:20
I don't think they're amateurs I would call them semi-pro cause they do get payed. But without knowing too much I think North pays more since they're founded and sponsored by FC Copenhagen.

Sycrone one of Denmark's best IGLs. Truly a beast, wish him good fortune in the team. Will be easy for him :)

why not fr0slev though, sycrone has been their worst player for a while lol
2017-09-27 21:52
Sycrone is replacing LOMME as IGL.. Fr0slev would be good, but i think they will sign Borup.
2017-09-27 21:58
b0rup its to good for an academy team,-estag +b0rup
2017-09-27 22:11
nah b0rup isn't ready for heroic just yet and an academy team is better than no team at all.. es3tag will find his form sooner or later. And es3tag was much better than b0rup in Tricked tbh.
2017-09-27 22:28
from what little i've seen of borup and esetag, borup has seemed more comfortable in the "star player role" than esetag. esetag proved himself to be a strong, consistent fragger in the past, but he seems super uncomfortable in valde's position.
