Copenhagen Flames announce new lineup
After their previous lineup was transferred to x6tence in late June, Copenhagen Flames were left with the task of putting together a new team entirely from scratch out of a "large list of potential candidates", twelve of whom were eventually interviewed before the organization decided on the final quintet.
The new roster is headlined by former North and Heroic player Daniel "mertz" Mertz, who last plied his trade in Singularity until early August when his contract expired after he spent the off-season on the bench.
The AWPer is joined by his former teammate from the aforementioned squad, 17-year-old Jakob "jabbi" Nygaard, as well as by ex-Lyngby Vikings duo Marcus "maNkz" Kjeldsen, who will take on the mantle of the in-game leader, and Jakob "Daffu" Schildt.
The last piece of the roster is Sebastian "Basso" Aagaard, who played for Copenhagen Flames in 2018-2019 and most recently attempted to create an international lineup in Adaptation, which ended up disbanding after just two months of existence.
The Danes will make their debut on Thursday in Nine to Five 3 Dawn, where they are part of the same group with BIG Academy, SKADE, and Wisla Krakow. Their opening match of the double-elimination group will be against the German side at 09:00 .
Copenhagen Flames' new lineup is the following:
