Epsilon reveal all-Swedish roster featuring Jayzwalkingz

After winning the first season of Gfinity Elite Series with an international roster, Epsilon has announced their new, fully Swedish squad.

Spearheading Epsilon's success in the last season of the UK based competition was Fredrik "⁠freddieb⁠" Buö, who combined well with the likes of André "⁠BARBARR⁠" Möller and Owen "⁠smooya⁠" Butterfield.

However, following freddieb's departure to GODSENT and the team parting ways with Lasse "⁠maeVe⁠" Elgaard, BARBARR "requested to take some time off", according to Epsilon's press release. Being three players down, the organization decided to bench smooya and Cosmin-Mihai "⁠cosmeeeN⁠" Butuc and bring in a whole new roster. 

Jayzwalkingz returns to a Swedish-speaking roster

As the second season of Gfinity Elite Series nears, Epsilon decided to take in the squad playing under the name Snabbabrillor, with the two most notable players on the roster being David "⁠Jayzwalkingz⁠" Kempner—formerly of Crowns and fnatic Academy—, and Andreas "⁠mOkEn⁠" Karlsson, who returns to Epsilon after wearing their jersey in 2016.

Eric "⁠Ericip⁠" Torsson made a bit of a mark with GODSENT Academy, while Gustav "⁠ZINKEN⁠" Björk and Kevin "⁠kevzy⁠" Nilsson are fairly unknown, although the latter was, interestingly, a part of an international Movistar Riders squad that competed in ESL Masters Spain.

The following players are now a part of Epsilon:

Sweden David "⁠Jayzwalkingz⁠" Kempner
Sweden Andreas "⁠mOkEn⁠" Karlsson
Sweden Kevin "⁠kevzy⁠" Nilsson
Sweden Gustav "⁠ZINKEN⁠" Björk
Sweden Eric "⁠Ericip⁠" Torsson

Sweden André "⁠BARBARR⁠" Möller (backup)
United Kingdom Owen "⁠smooya⁠" Butterfield (backup)
Romania Cosmin-Mihai "⁠cosmeeeN⁠" Butuc (backup)

Sweden Christian "⁠chrille⁠" Lindberg (coach)

Ofc the "first lineup" was better, but now Smooya got benched and everything just got fucked. Imo you guys should give these youngsters a chance before saying "Tier 3000" "lol bots" "Worst team ever" etc.
2017-10-02 19:53
I would be happy if they make decents results don't get me wrong, but I don't really know how could they. Time will tell :)

I've met 2 of them in faceit pugs, and Jayz in a open qualifier. And i don't consider myself tier anything. Kevzy is pretty good. Jayz is probably the best player i've ever played against. (Maybe Devil, he was pretty damn sick as well). Zinken was pure crap tho' and i've met him a few times. Heard good things about Ericip from former teammates. Don't know anything about Moken. But even that i think some of the players are good, it still doesn't mean they're going anywhere. After all, i don't see any other player than Jayz on that team, being better than a regular faceit lvl 10 player.

They have already played a few officials on HLTV hltv.org/matches/2315300/ex-outlaws-vs-k.. Barbarr requesting to be a backup on Epsilon gives us a pretty clear indication that he is going to be a permanent member, Not sure about Kalle though
2017-10-02 19:58
kalle is a free agent so high possibility too
2017-10-02 20:26
Yeah, Personally I think they probably could've got someone better though
2017-10-02 20:29

LOL...i had the banner of "Epsilon fan" here, because i liked Epsilon...but now the team is shitty IMHO. Moken and Jaywalkingz are the only players I know...the first is acceptable, but Jay failed his most recent experience as AWPer...smooya is better than him I think, but ok...let's see this team...after all the swedish are goddamn devils in this game
