Apeks sign jkaem

The Norwegian rifler will soon return to his homeland to further his career after spending almost three years in North America.

Apeks have announced that they have completed the signing of Joakim "⁠jkaem⁠" Myrbostad from 100 Thieves for an undisclosed fee. The 26-year-old has signed a three-year deal with the Norwegian organisation, reuniting with his former G2 teammate Dennis "⁠dennis⁠" Edman.

jkaem returns to Norway after almost three years in North America, where he competed for Renegades and 100 Thieves. He played his final match for the Australian team on Sunday — a 3-1 defeat to FURIA in the grand final of IEM New York — before the organisation officially withdrew from Counter-Strike.

jkaem completes Apeks' roster

"I had plans to return to Norway sooner or later. I didn't know when it would happen, but with the situation in 100 Thieves, my thoughts of coming home became clearer," jkaem said in a statement. "Apeks came with an offer that I was happy with, and after giving it some thought, it was the right decision. The idea of contributing to help to build the Norwegian esports scene became the deciding factor."

In the Norwegian team, jkaem will once again link up with dennis after the pair briefly played together in 2015 in the G2 team that reached the semi-finals at the DreamHack Open Cluj-Napoca Major. dennis went on to join fnatic, while jkaem stayed with the team, which was bought by FaZe at the start of 2016.

Anders Kjær, Apeks' director of sports, expressed his delight at the signing of one of Norway's most experienced players and stated that this move will mark the start of a new cycle for the team.

"One of our biggest ambitions has been to bring back Norwegian stars while they still have a lot to give in their careers," he said. "Joakim is a gigantic resource in many ways and will impact the team in a tremendously positive degree. We will contribute with a very specific 'know-how' around how to become the best, both as a team and as individual players. He has played with many different teams and players, which has given him a lot of experience throughout his career. All that experience is extremely difficult and time-consuming to acquire, and it's something we're hoping he will pass on to the others. I really believe this step will do gigantic things for us, but it will definitely take some time."

Apeks will compete in Elisa Invitational 2, a Nordic-based tournament that will offer one spot in the BLAST Premier Fall Showdown. The Norwegian team have been placed in Group B alongside ENCE, MAD Lions and AGF.

With jkaem's signing, Apeks now have:

Norway Ole "⁠Marcelious⁠" Kristian Langan
Norway Sander "⁠Grusarn⁠" Iversen
Sweden Dennis "⁠dennis⁠" Edman
Norway Martin "⁠Nasty⁠" Garvik
Norway Joakim "⁠jkaem⁠" Myrbostad

Norway Pål "⁠Polly⁠" Kammen (coach)

I believe pro players work on a "service" basis, not actually a real contract (i.e. to evade paying a ton taxes and shit). that's why a lot of them have "companies" on their name.

They probably want to be Ence but for Norway, they need more cash tho, Marcellious very good and Jkaem is tier 1 player, but Dennis and Grusarn not convincing and Nasty is super bad, they need to get back Radifaction since hes been doing fine in Secret against decent opponents, get Cromen back from the hellhole his career has become and maybe scout some other promising youngster from Norway or elseJkaem will quit this project fast

2020-10-19 13:00
i tried to predict who they could sign excluding Rain and Hallzerk because i dont think Apeks has the money and reputation to bring them in, but im no expert in esport finances sothey might have the money to do it, sometimes you never know just how much money the sponsors are ready to cash out

dennis has literally been carrying them almost the entire time since joining the team. Plus Marcelious isn't very good, by the way, he just got good stats, because he is AWPing, hallzerk would be much better.
2020-10-19 16:41
2 replies
Dennis has been carrying them but its still Dennis, very inconsistent player thats why I said he wasn’t convincing but if he can perform consistently against better opposition he can definetely be good, Marcelious isnt bad at all, I’ve watchd some games and he looks promising, considering he’s young and hasnt had much high level experience, he can only go up from there and his mechanics are good enough, Hallzerk is probably better but Dignitas has him under lock and key unless Apeks can buy him out, but I think that would be wasteful of their money.

dennis is surely very good for this level, and he's been an in-game leader recently, as far as I know. I really hope that Marcelious will grow in a good player, of course. But right now, he often misses A LOT of easy shots, and he is also very inconsistent - look at his match history. Getting hallzerk over him would be a big upgrade.

i really hope him and Tenzki call it quits on Nordavind, the org has shown to be absolutely incompetent and made HS leave, also they kept bringing H4rre in and out the roster to plug holes instead of finding a good replacement, Cromen has a lot of talent he probably cant express cause of the awful mental state hes likely in(I hope moving to a norway team, with a respected player and person such as Jkaem can help him) and TENZKI used to be one of the most consistent tier 1 players from 2015 to 2016, seeing them rot away is soul crushing

TENZKI also looked really good in early Nordavind. He basically carried them (back when they had RUBINO). After he had to call it quits, TENZKI started to play worse and worse. And Cromen has really bad roles in Nordavind if I remember correctly.

I would imagine they're going to be developing the Norwegian scene so in some amount of time I think dennis is going to be out, he's old and not the best player on the team. Marcelious is skilled enough to be a real prospect, I would imagine they try to build around Marcelious as a star, and jkaem as a mentor.

Most people considered him to be the second-best player of 100T, just below jks, this definitely is a huge surprise. I understand he wanted the challenge of building a new scene and maybe, should hallzerk leave DIG, they could have a shot at building a decent roster.

I reckon he is just not very ambitious. It surprises people outside of scandinavia how little the average Scandinavian cares about "success". Money is not an issue to a scandinavian person as you just get free money from the government. As a result, people tend to strive to have a good family life or good experiences rather than the classic "American Dream". My guess is that he isn't that passionate about CS.

Meh. I would understand if it was a traditional sport but honestly if you can make some bank off of CS and get out you are better off IMO. CS isn't an art or a game with historical and cultural importance. Its a video game that people take way too seriously.

He is the only Apeks member who has not been benched or kicked the last 1.5 year also. akez, truth, Radifaction and Marcelious have all been kicked or benched at some point if I am not mistaken.

Everyone saying "rip career", "nice retirement home". This is basically the same situation we had with ENCE in 2018, a lot of people saying the same thing over allu joining ENCE with "4 less known/skilled players". Watch Apeks climb up the rankings and become a solid top 30-20 team in a year or so. I hope Apeks would do +cromen and -dennis though.

I'm surprised by this too. Jkaem is a top level player easily deserving of a solid top 10 team. Hopefully Apeks do put in the work to improve with this pick up.
2020-10-19 13:45
FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK. I respect his wishes but I hope he doesn't fade away into obscurity. He deserves a much better team. A 3 year contract is also way too long.
2020-10-19 13:47
why not North
2020-10-19 13:47
Seems like capitulation to me. A 3 year contract in a team that has shown nothing to indicate that they could make in into tier 1 is something that geriatrics like dennis might accede to but jkaem could have looked for a more promising team.

unexpected. I'm quite excited to see him in a EU team though, hopefully apeks continues with investment and get at least 1-2 more high quality players.

I’m sad and disappointed he didn’t join C9 or some other brand that was well-known. If they do the Super Norwegian team then: Rubino (Last Chance to prove his worth) Rain Jkaem Marcelicious Cromen (One more chance to prove)/ Hallzerk I like Radifaction, but he hasn’t been looking good :(

Great signing from Apeks. He is a great player and will bring a lot to this team. I think still changes are needed, but the core of Marcelious, Grusarn and jkaem looks exciting.

Obviously jkaem could play for a top10/15 org. He and jks have been the standouts for 100T without a doubt. Unlike many others here I really like his decision. Moving back home to try and create a top team from your home country. I can really respect that. Plus he probably gets a decent salary and he is close to his friends and family. Nothing wrong with that.
