iGame.com announce new roster
iGame.com, the Finnish organization that held the spot as #1 team in Finland for a time during parts of 2016 and 2017, has revealed its new roster.
The Finnish team was known for having a stable roster built around the core of Sami "xseveN" Laasanen, Eetu "sAw" Saha, Saku "SAGGERTON" Jokinen, and Lasse "ZOREE" Uronen, who were together since mid-2015 when they were playing under the tryPANTS tag. After some time playing for Epiphany and RCTIC, the lineup eventually settled in iGame.com with Slaava "Twista" Räsänen, who then became the team's coach.
That core became the top team in Finland, but slowly started to disintegrate after reaching their ceiling in 2017. With the advent of ENCE, HAVU, and SJ, the roster slowly started to dissolve with the last pieces of the historic lineup leaving as xseveN recently joined ENCE, while sAw and Olli "sLowi" Pitkänen—one of the newer additions—found their way to HAVU.
In return, iGame.com now have Mikko "xartE" Välimaa, Jesse "KHRN" Grandell, and Timo "REFLEX" Rintala, who is making a return to competitive play. The team will also be joined by longtime member Twista who has been both a player and a coach and will see the return of SAGGERTON, who had left the team in mid-2017.
"After playing almost a year in HAVU with varying results, we had ups and downs but during the year we made new friends and got a lot of experience. We knew that something needed to change in order to get fresh set of minds to pursue our goals, so we decided to look other options with Jesse "KHRN" Grandell.
"We took our time to go through our options, we decided to ask Timo "REFLEX" Rintala to make a comeback and start playing with us. After this move we wanted to combine our strength with our good friends from iGame, Slaava "Twista" Räsänen and Saku "SAGGERTON" Jokinen. We are sure our good spirit and team work will be our advantage. We want to thank iGame for this opportunity."
