SuperJymy sign xartE and KHRN

The Finnish side SuperJymy have added two experienced players to their roster in Jesse "⁠KHRN⁠" Grandell and Mikko "⁠xartE⁠" Välimaa.

SJ have added two experienced players in xartE and KHRN to replace 19-year-old Verneri "⁠BONA⁠" Junkala and 16-year-old Samuli "⁠Twixie⁠" Herrala. The Finnish team signed the two veterans to tryout contracts, and will have them until the end of the year. They join two youngsters in Tuomas "⁠SADDYX⁠" Louhimaa and Elias "⁠Jamppi⁠" Olkkonen as well as former ENCE player Tony "⁠arvid⁠" Niemelä.

KHRN and xartE will now don the SuperJymy jersey

The changes come after a slew of bad results, which have SJ sitting low in the ESEA MDL Season 29 table with three victories and seven defeats. Before making these changes, this roster was also unable to raise the trophy at local LAN events, coming second at Vectorama 2018 and the Finnish Esports League Season 5 Finals and taking third at the Finnish Esports Championship 2018.

Now, the team faces the last couple months of the year with a mix of youth and experience to turn around their poor start in MDL and try to finish higher up on the table.

"It's a great opportunity for me and KHRN to join SuperJymy. They already had really promising individuals and I believe that with our experience and expertise we will be able to develop more as a team and as individuals."

- Mikko "⁠xartE⁠" Välimaa

With the addition of the two players, SJ's lineup is:

Finland Mikko "⁠xartE⁠" Välimaa
Finland Jesse "⁠KHRN⁠" Grandell
Finland Tony "⁠arvid⁠" Niemelä
Finland Elias "⁠Jamppi⁠" Olkkonen

Lol keep transferring the same shit players and hope it gets better :D
2018-10-31 14:56
problem is that there's not really any other good players with experience, ence has the best players, the young finnish players are only good in the finnish scene and they're nothing special outside of it
2018-10-31 16:18
Still better to take the risk with younger players and give them a chance than recycling the players who are proofed to be tier7 players
2018-10-31 16:19
Xarte has solid experience and can bring up these younger players imo

xartE is good and KHRN is decent enough. You just can't put 5 sick aim kids together and expect them to play as a team. Most good cs teams have 2 older guys and 3 madfragger kids.
2018-10-31 18:50
Just check out how that worked out for Aleksib and sergej. Having a couple of experienced players is huge asset for young team.
2018-10-31 20:22
it never works putting 5 young players that only have experience in the local scene and expect them to do good internationally lol, any young players that are not in ence or havu aren't even in fpl
2018-10-31 21:16
prolly not at the start but they only need the experience. But ye keep xarte kick rest and get 4 good youngsters would be best option imo.
2018-10-31 21:21
So jamppi and saddyx aren't young players who were given a chance by superjymy? Lmao if you think that saddyx and jamppi weren't a a risk in the first place when they were picked up, I dont know what to say. They had barely played any officials apart from KoN. Tbh the move seems logical because arvid doesn't have as much experience as the grandpas do and the youngsters have much to learn from them. Bona wasn't that good and twixie's going to havu according to hltv comments? Makes sense. But who is the IGL for the team now?
