nawwk departs GamerLegion

GamerLegion have announced the departure of Tim "nawwk" Jonasson on Twitter.

nawwk is expected to join NiP as part of a shift in the Swedish scene caused by the long-rumored creation of a new Dignitas lineup featuring the four-man core of the original Ninjas roster.

The AWPer had been playing with GamerLegion for the majority of a year, having joined the team from x6tence Galaxy in March. At the time, he played alongside Kévin "Ex6TenZ" Droolans, Adil "ScreaM" Benrlitom, and Kevin "HS" Tarn, but over the next few months several moves saw the German organization transition to a fully Swedish roster.

nawwk leaves GamerLegion ahead of his reported move to NiP

nawwk most notably helped the European version place second at Moche XL Esports in June. After the creation of the Swedish core, the team reached the semi-finals at Good Game League in Poland and at WePlay! Forge of Masters Season 2 Finals in Ukraine.

According to the aforementioned report, GamerLegion are expected to bring in a new AWPer in William "draken" Sundin to fill the gap left by the 22-year-old's departure.

The former NiP member has already been seen playing with the squad instead of nawwk in the IEM Katowice 2020 Europe Open qualifier, in which GamerLegion reached the round of 16, where they lost to Apeks.

At the moment, GamerLegion officially boast the following lineup:

Sweden Hampus "hampus" Poser
Sweden Fredrik "freddieb" Buö
Sweden Dennis "dennis" Edman
Sweden Alfred "RuStY" Karlsson

Sweden Daniel "djL" Narancic (coach)

Good morning sir
2020-01-21 15:41
he literally does nothing for team, just plays antiflash positions and doesnt create any space at all. Worst enemies flashed, lowest time of rotation, and against teams like Astralis or Liquid he always throws in the most important rounds just like twist. f0rest too old to have control over overpeeking and knowing when to fall back or give a round winning flash

2020-01-21 14:56
I wonder if nawwk has already been practicing with NiP
2020-01-21 14:55
If he is joining the rumoured Dignitas lineup, then its RIP career, if he is joining NiP, then it will be beneficial to him and the org

Wont Rez move back to old role and become a beast again now? Twist to take Rez role?

again? hes always been inconsistent at best. Twist has never ever lived up to his potential except once in Sydney 2018. NiP is a lost cause and it has been since IEM Oakland 2017 and even then they didnt do anything before or after
2020-01-21 15:22
NiP for the last months has been doing pretty good, dont know where your eyes were. Nawwk can only add more fuel

Twist feels like such a waste if NiP is adding nawwk. They should get a good anchor to play around and let nawwk take the awp 100%.

I would pick a hybrid awper who who has proven himself in big stage games and major playoffs consistently rather than a young inexperienced awper who played in tier 3 his entire life outfragging bots.
