Former CS 1.6 player Jonas "whimp" Svendsen has been appointed as North's new Director of Esports, a position which was left vacant by Jacob "Maelk" Toft-Andersen.

The storied 1.6 player, who won ESWC 2004 with Titans, and signed with mTw in 2008, a team for which he won events like WCG 2008 and WEM 2008, will be in charge of esports at North as Jacob "Maelk" Toft-Andersen, his predecessor, heads to OpTic.

"We believe that Jonas’ past as a competitive player, as well as his analytical and structured approach to management, will help the organization, both in the immediate future and in the long term", said Christian Sørensen, North's CEO.

whimp will be Director of Esports at North

Jonas "whimp" Svendsen, who has been working with the team ahead of the ELEAGUE Boston Major, gave the following statement about the move:

"North is one of the best teams in the world, and when they presented me with the opportunity to become Director of Esports, I jumped at the chance. I believe that I bring something unique to the table, as I come into the job – not as an outsider with no grasp of esports – but as a once professional that is coming back to the game I love. I want to utilize the winning mentality and management experience I have accumulated as a competitive Counter-Strike 1.6-player, and management consultant at Deloitte, to realize the potential of our teams."

Along with these changes, North have given Casper "ruggah" Due and Alexander "ave" Holdt, the coaches of the main and the academy teams, respectively, bigger roles in the sporting department as they will have more influence over the roster and increased responsibility for the squads' results.

you eat whales so you kinda fuck em so he probably meant this bcoz he thinks whales are fish
2018-01-08 23:55
Well, we don't eat whales more than you do :)
2018-01-09 11:53
wait wot? I dont eat whales or dolphins only the Japs and Scandis
2018-01-10 12:09
Think you got some bad information
2018-01-10 14:32
every year you go hunt for whales bru dont lie its a special party or was it a Norwegian tradition only? ;)
2018-01-10 16:32
We ain't hunting or eating no whales, that for sure :) Go pick on Rubino instead plz :P
2018-01-11 02:33
We dont even have whales close by. If we got whales its because they stranded here. You're prob thinking about Greenland. They eat alot of fish, whales etc.
2018-01-13 01:36
I don't know where you got that information from, but it couldn't be more wrong :)
2018-01-13 22:41
You are probably talking about the Faroe Islands
