On Red Reserve, draken will reunite with his former Epsilon teammates Fredrik "freddieb" Buö and Joakim "disco doplan" Gidetun, alongside whom he won Pro Gamer League Summer and the ESPORTSM Finals, both in 2016.
The Swedish AWPer leaves fnatic after just four months with the UK-based organisation. While part of the team, he attended five LAN events and averaged a 0.94 rating, with fnatic admitting that the player's "untapped potential might not have been met".
"draken is a dead-on signing," Red Reserve CEO Patrik Andersson is quoted by fragbite. as saying. "He has great potential and will be an ideal and important building block of our CS team.
"draken complements our current players perfectly, and it can only happen that our team will challenge the best in the world."
draken already played for Red Reserve in the first open qualifier for the Europe Minor, in which the team lost to Chaos in the Round of 16, and in ESEA MDL. In both tournaments, Red Reserve also fielded Alfred "RuStY" Karlsson, though it is unclear at this point whether the former Singularity player will sign a permanent deal with the organisation, which he briefly represented in 2017.
I'm back with the boys whom i made my breakthru with and i'm confident we can do it as a team now. We for sure left the Epsilon chapter unfinished~— drake 🐲 (@drakenCSGO) October 26, 2018
