Tricked sign trio; AnJ moved to bench
Tricked have signed three new players to complete their roster, with Frederik "LOMME" Nielsen, Nicolai "glace" Jensen and Johannes "b0RUP" Borup joining the fold.
The Danish organization went through a lot of turmoil since the start of last month, first benching Thomas "Ryxxo" Nielsen before doing the same to Peter "Inzta" Kragelund and Mads "Console" Skovby. Console found himself on a new team not long after, though, joining Nicolai "HUNDEN" Petersen in ALTERNATE aTTaX.
The team had been down to three permanent players as of late: Lucas "Lukki" Pilheden, Simon "snedker" Snedker and Allan "AnJ" Jensen, but the former NRG member ended up being moved to the bench, making way for new signings.
Now, Tricked announced that they would be signing three new players, a duo that played together in North Academy and Unity—Frederik "LOMME" Nielsen and Nicolai "glace" Jensen—, as well as Johannes "b0RUP" Borup, a more-recent North Academy member.
"We had a very bumpy road in 2017 with our last team and as stated in previous articles we really tried everything to make the team perform," Tricked CEO Morten "Phy" Jensen said in a statement.
"Unfortunately, the team never really flourished and we only saw a small glimpse of what they were capable of. This resulted in 2017 being a year where Tricked Esport lost ground to its direct competition and seeing its rivals move much faster.
"This time we tried a different type of leader that we knew would also bring a very different playing style to the team and so far I'm really excited to see how much Glace & Lomme brings to the team.
"It's been a turbulent period for our Counter-Strike division, and I'm sad that this had to affect AnJ, a player I have immense respect for but I'm also really happy with our picks, Borup is a great guy that I'm proud to have back in Tricked again."
Tricked is now:
