North welcome JUGi; part ways with cadiaN
Casper "cadiaN" Møller's departure marks the conclusion of an eight-month tenure, over the course of which the Dane was able to assist his former squad in achieving the GG.BET Ice Challenge trophy, as well as a handful of playoff runs at large events.
JUGi's addition to the North starting roster signifies a reunion with Valdemar "valde" Bjørn Vangså and Nicklas "gade" Gade, both of whom he performed alongside in previous iterations of Heroic and OpTic, respectively.
To compensate for the departure of North's in-game leader, valde has been promoted to captain of the starting roster. Below is a statement, describing why the Dane decided to assume this responsibility:
"I feel that the time has come for me to take on extra responsibilities within the team. Becoming an in-game leader and team captain is not a decision you make overnight. It's something I've thought about many, many times during my career and I knew within myself that the day where I would make that transition was gonna come at one point but I certainly didn't see it coming this early.
I cannot promise you miracle-results overnight and there will definitely be bumps along the road, but what I can promise you is someone who's willing to sacrifice what it takes to bring his team to the top. I really believe that my vision and leadership will take us there. I hope you guys will follow me on this journey. It would mean a lot to me."
North are now composed of:
Torbjørn "mithR" Nyborg (coach)
