MAD Lions sign AcilioN
The 23-year-old fills the gap left by the team's former in-game leader, Nicolai "HUNDEN" Petersen, who was benched on Thursday amidst plans to transition into a managerial role in the organization after getting burned out.
AcilioN last represented Copenhagen Flames until late February this year but is better known from his times in Heroic, where he played for around six months in late 2018 to early 2019, and other teams such as Imperial in 2018, Tricked in 2017, and SK in 2016.
His addition to MAD Lions comes just a few days ahead of the start of the team's campaign in the first season of FLASHPOINT, which is set to start on March 13 with the first group stage. The Los Angeles tournament is currently the only event on the Danish team's calendar after the benching of HUNDEN cost them a spot in the Europe Minor closed qualifier ahead of ESL One Rio.
MAD Lions now have:
Luis "peacemaker" Tadeu (coach)
