Red Reserve parted ways with its squad, with players such as Fredrik "FREDDyFROG" Gustafsson and Niclas "PlesseN" Plessen set to continue playing together, for the time being under the name Japaleno.

The Swedish organization was represented by a mixture of their old squad and former fnatic Academy members since the end of October, when Niclas "PlesseN" Plessen and Linus "Bååten" Andersson joined up with Fredrik "FREDDyFROG" Gustafsson, Joakim "Relaxa" Gustafsson and Daniel "djL" Narancic.

FREDDyFROG and co. will stick together after leaving Red Reserve

Since then, Red Reserve was unable to have a break-out performance, floating between the 30th and 50th place in our rankings. The team attended two LANs in 2018, placing 5-8th at the Copenhagen Games BYOC and 7-8th at the Bets.net Masters, where they played with a stand-in.

The team and the organization recently decided to part ways, but the five players will continue playing together and are looking for a new organization to represent in ESEA MDL S28 and other competitions.

djL said the following to HLTV.org:

"Me, Relaxa, Plessen, Baaten and FREDDyFROG have officially parted ways with Red Reserve for different circumstances. We both had high expectations, but right now, we could not meet them. We are really thankful for our time in Red Reserve and the opportunities we were given by the organization. Thanks for everything Red CEO Patrik."

"We are now officially searching for a new organization to represent in MDL S28. We are motivated to continue together and keep practicing hard to achieve our goals. Every RT would be appreciated for helping us find our new home! Reach us via mail: officialdjlcsgo@gmail.com"

The following squad is on the outlook for a new home:

There's some talent in Freddyfrog and plessen, hopefully digital chaos will kick Benny and get one of these
2018-05-21 16:08
i think freddy and relaxa comes as a package tbh
2018-05-21 16:23
Well pyth is pretty much useless too so wouldn't mind it.
2018-05-21 17:23
whole chaos team is pretty garbage if they had match against jalapeno i think they would lose
2018-05-22 07:37
How do all these major winners, tier 1 players and star players just wash up sooner or later? Hiko, Maikelele, pronax, pyth, freakazoid, markeloff and so many more.
2018-05-22 08:39
because they are too old and their playstyle becomes stale while csgo meta changes, even look at olof. he was like supportish player in faze, in old fnatic days he was madfragger
2018-05-22 08:49
FREDDYFROG has insane potential, relaxa and the other two young guns are also pretty good but they NEEEED to get rid of BOT djLoco of they ever want to achieve something, could probably become the new GODSENT at least with some good training and proper coaching

Ideal would be like -djl -Relaxa (even tho I know he's a package with his twin) and +IGL (idk who, maybe BARBARR) +AWP, best one being jayzar
2018-05-22 17:29
maybe -djl +plopski (insane upcoming swedish talent), they need relaxa to stay in the roster since he is main AWP maybe -plessen or -baaten +hugoXD or +barbarr idk rly who is better but they seem to be lacking a proper IGL
2018-05-22 19:08
I thought japaleno was a Player xDdddd

-djL -Baaten -BARBARR +znajder znajder = Passive Extremity ( Lurker ) Relaxa = Main AWPer BARBARR = (IGL) Support & Secondary AWPer FREDDyFROG = Revenge Fragger ( 2nd Man In ) PlesseN = Agressiv Extremity ( Entry Fragger ) djL to coach were he belongs, easily a TOP20 to TOP10 team.
