HS parts ways with Nordavind

The Norwegian team ranked 66th in the world is making another roster change, cutting ties with the Estonian rifler.

Kevin "⁠HS⁠" Tarn's departure comes seven months into his journey with Nordavind, after a turbulent perioud which saw them peak at #38 in the world but struggle for consistency - and a stable roster.

Nordavind has had ten different players represent them in official matches in the last three months, with Niels-Christian "⁠NaToSaphiX⁠" Sillassen's departure in August and Ruben "⁠RUBINO⁠" Villarroel's health issues seeing the team pick up different stand-in and trial players. The team is now down to three full-time members, looking to rebuild their roster before the end of 2020.

HS is out of Nordavind

With a 1.08 rating over the last three months, HS was one of the better performers on the team, with the fact that was the in-game leader after RUBINO left making the numbers more impressive.

In a TwitLonger published on September 19, HS explained that 2020 with Nordavind felt like a copy of his stint with Tempo Storm in 2018: "[We] couldn't build the roster we originally wanted, RUBINO was injured and stepped away from the lineup which meant that the roles were messed up again, we are missing crucial pieces".

The 23-year-old added that he took on too many responsibilities, trying to lead a "dysfunctional lineup", with frustration building and, in the end, the Estonian becoming a part of the problem as well.

Still, he states that his work ethic further improved and is individually on point, before concluding: "CS is my life. I am prepared. I am ready to see that my dreams come true. My only goal is to become the best with my team, nothing else matters".

Nordavind are now:

Norway Jorgen "⁠cromen⁠" Robertsen
Norway Haris "⁠H4RR3⁠" Hadzic
Denmark Jesper "⁠TENZKI⁠" Plougmann
Denmark Thomas "⁠Ryxxo⁠" Nielsen (stand-in)

Denmark Dennis "⁠Rytter⁠" Rytter (coach)

sure i guess they could play with keita for pro league but why not get a better player in the form of HS. they're out of the major unless more rmr tournaments are added.
2020-09-23 21:29
Agree. He is versatile and has played in several mixed nationality rosters now. Could fit into oBo's role pretty well in my opinion.
2020-09-23 23:28
I agree ppl critisized HS for being trash. But I knew one day he would get better
2020-09-24 08:07
Like literally I thought he was gone but then he came back. Also I heard that he didn't play Comp cs for months due an accident.
2020-09-24 08:17
Hs col stand in till 2021. Shines. Obo unbenched, hs sold to faze for 600000$. Ez money jason lake

I am not that updated with the CS scene, but can anyone tell me if HS was pretty good these past few years last time i heard about him was when he was in optic
2020-09-23 19:47
he was a decent tier2 player back then, but he was never considered a star player or anything
2020-09-23 20:30
His teams were all disasters and his statistics mediocre at best, wouldnt say hes been good

Not sure if H4RR3 is also not playing for Nordavind anymore. I believe he is a coach for the Norwegian Nordavind lineup.

Understandable, he has been pretty weak. Now they should remove cromen because he is way to inconsistent, and end the trial of fejtZ because he is playing like shit, and build a new roster around TENZKI and H4RR3.
