Fragsters bring back Bubski, fr0slev benched
The Danish squad has decided to bring back Lucas "Bubski" Andersen, who was released from the squad last month, replacing Magnus "fr0slev" Frøslev.
Fragsters continue to swap players as their results go downhill. The young Danish team peaked at #39 in our rankings on November 13th, leading up to the WESG EU & CIS Finals, but struggled to do much after their underwhelming showing in Barcelona.
Early in December, Lucas "Bubzkji" Andersen, their trial player who was also their best performer at the WESG EU & CIS Finals, was released due to "social chemistry", with the team bringing in Ismail "refrezh" Ali as their new trial member a few days later.
The addition of the former Tricked player wasn't enough to stop the rot and Fragsters continued their negative trend, most recently losing to LPSP in two straightforward maps in the Dust2.dk Masters #15. The team, that is currently 96th in our rankings, has decided to shake up their roster again, bringing back Bubzkji and benching Magnus "fr0slev" Frøslev.
Kenneth "DKN" Goldy, the co-owner of Fragsters and former coach of the team, explained that the Bubzkji was a great fit in-game, and that the squad would need to find a solution for the social aspect:
"Right now, we are in a situation where the results are against us even though everyone on the team has fought hard to make it work. We need to pull the brake and turn our heads back to the fundamentals in our game which played a role in our success in 2017."
"We have to admit that our game plan works out with Bubski as a part of the team which forces us to prioritise finding solutions regarding the social aspect. Our results have always been the most important for us in Fragsters, even if some people don’t have that conception. We made many good decisions in the past, but benching Bubski wasn’t one of them."
"Contrary to the decision regarding benching Bubski, which was the player’s decision, we all agree in this matter. That’s a great starting point when we have to grind us through 2018 and conquer the world. fr0slev and refrezh are the same types in the game which makes them the only options to be replaced by Bubski."
"Of course, I come back to Fragsters with mixed thoughts and feelings,, most people see it a bit like a big circus, and I think it might be a little bit crazy to come back to Fragsters. But when the results were as good as they were then and it worked so well ingame, I feel it's just right for me to team up with the boys again in order to reach their and my ambitions within CS."
With the recent changes, Fragsters have the following roster:
