AcilioN returns to Copenhagen Flames
The Dane found a new-old home in Copenhagen Flames, which he left to join the Spanish organization in March, but will be leading a completely new lineup after Magnus "Nodios" Olsen and co. were bought out by x6tence.
A report linking AcilioN and Paweł "innocent" Mocek with an exit from MAD Lions was published on September 15 by DBLTAP, with the team's last match dating back to September 9. Since then, the team's radio silence was only broken as innocent confirmed his exit from the lineup, explaining that things weren't right from the start.
As AcilioN's time with MAD Lions has officially come to an end, he looks back on a seven-month period during which the team peaked at #11 in the rankings and won the inaugural season of FLASHPOINT in April. During his tenure with the team, AcilioN averaged a 0.95 rating and secured wins in just 56.2% of maps played.
On the other hand, Copenhagen Flames will look to prove once again that they can quickly build a successful lineup, having sold almost a dozen players to teams such as MAD Lions, x6tence, GODSENT, and Heroic over the last year.
"This move should definitely be seen as our first step towards wanting more. We want Copenhagen Flames to be a consistent factor in international CS:GO and I believe our investment in Asger shows that," Copenhagen Flames Director of Esport, Daniel Vorborg, explained in the announcement. "When you have a player like Asger; placing in the top 30 is not just something we hope for – it’s a must."
Vorborg added that the organization is happy with how the "shuffle season" went: "We’ve sold players for a higher amount than we’ve bought for and I’m confident that we have a stronger and more competitive roster now, than we did before."
