Nordavind sign Ryxxo

The 24-year-old AWPer has joined Nordavind on a long-term deal after standing in for the team since the start of September.

Thomas "⁠Ryxxo⁠" Nielsen made the jump from Ambush to Nordavind as the Norwegian organization undergoes a rebuild of its roster following departures of Niels-Christian "⁠NaToSaphiX⁠" Sillassen and Kevin "⁠HS⁠" Tarn. The Danish sniper played 17 maps for the team already, averaging a 1.07 rating.

Nordavind's latest signing puts them up to four players, but the future of the lineup remains unclear as they have been playing wihtout Haris "⁠H4RR3⁠" Hadzic in their most recent matches. Instead, veteran Thomas "⁠haste⁠" Dyrensborg and 16-year-old Ådne "⁠sense⁠" Fredriksen from Nordavind NO were representing the squad in ESEA MDL Season 35.

Ryxxo will fill the AWP slot for Nordavind

The Copenhagen Games 2017 victory with Singularity was Ryxxo's breakout moment, as the Danish team ran the gauntlet from the BYOC qualifier all the way to the title. After peaking with Singularity at #20 in the world, Ryxxo spent a year in Tricked and then represented lower-tier squads such as STEP and Ambush, often partnering with Peter "⁠Inzta⁠" Kragelund.

"There are going to be some challenges in the beginning but nothing that I do not know we can make work", Ryxxo said in a statement for his former team Ambush, who announced the sale to Nordavind. "I'm going to get some more experienced teammates who I can hopefully learn a lot from and eventually become a better player overall".

Ryxxo will continue his cooperation with Nordavind, now as a full-time player, today in ESEA MDL Season 35, with matches against Secret and Singularity scheduled for 17:00 and 20:45 , respectively.

Nordavind are now:

Norway Jorgen "⁠cromen⁠" Robertsen
Norway Haris "⁠H4RR3⁠" Hadzic
Denmark Jesper "⁠TENZKI⁠" Plougmann
Denmark Thomas "⁠Ryxxo⁠" Nielsen

Denmark Dennis "⁠Rytter⁠" Rytter (coach)

Cool signing man. Lets go!
2020-09-29 14:40
He is one of the best up and coming players from Denmark rn., great signing by Nordavind, overall I think Nordavind still needs a little bit of rebuild, but the core of TENZKI, H4RR3 and Ryxxo is solid for me.

Nordavind will make the acquisition of a player from a team that is outside the danish top 10 today. Announcement is due any minute. Confirmed. Here we go.
2020-10-07 09:13
R.I.P x6tence. Taking back zEVES
2020-10-07 09:21
It's not an x6tence player, I can give you that much, nor is it zEVES. It's a danish player, currently playing for a team outside top 10 in Denmark. The list of top10 can be found here: dust2.dk/Ranking/2020/Oktober
