Copenhagen Flames sign maNkz, Nodios

The new players rejoin the team after a short stint with x6tence.

Copenhagen Flames have signed Marcus "⁠maNkz⁠" Kjeldsen and Magnus "⁠Nodios⁠" Olsen from x6tence, the Danish organisation announced on Sunday. The pair will replace Sebastian "⁠Basso⁠" Aagaard and Jakob "⁠Daffu⁠" Schildt, who were moved to the bench earlier on Sunday.

Nodios and maNkz both played for Copenhagen Flames in 2020 before being bought out by x6tence in June and October, respectively. Their return comes just days after DBLTAP reported that x6tence will release the team at the end of the month and take a step back from competitive Counter-Strike.

Copenhagen Flames' co-owner praised Nodios' skills

"When we announced AcilioN's return from MAD Lions, we also announced a change in strategy in the Counter-Strike department," Copenhagen Flames' co-owner Daniel Vorborg stated in a video. "We will be trying to hold on to our best players for longer, and we will be investing more in the team to ensure our participation at a higher level.

"Nodios is one of the players who have been the longest in Flames. I know he is a player with strong opinions about how the game should be played, and he's skilled at taking initiative, both inside and outside of the server. maNkz was of course the IGL on x6tence and the last time he was in Flames, so he's obviously also a player to come on with initiative and leadership, who can help make the crucial calls when we need them."

Copenhagen Flames now have:

Denmark Jakob "⁠jabbi⁠" Nygaard
Denmark Asger "⁠AcilioN⁠" Larsen
Denmark Nico "⁠nicoodoz⁠" Tamjidi
Denmark Magnus "⁠Nodios⁠" Olsen
Denmark Marcus "⁠maNkz⁠" Kjeldsen

Denmark Sebastian "⁠Basso⁠" Aagaard (benched)
Denmark Jakob "⁠Daffu⁠" Schildt (benched)

Meanwhile, x6tence are down to the following three players and coach:

Denmark Jonas "⁠Queenix⁠" Dideriksen
Denmark Daniel "⁠mertz⁠" Mertz
Denmark Jesper "⁠TENZKI⁠" Plougmann

Norway Morten "⁠zEVES⁠" Vollan (coach)

Jabbi is good entry
2021-01-10 21:17
17 years old with solid fundamentals. Would be stupid to let him off the lease before utilizing his potential and getting a nice buyout
2021-01-10 22:11
HE has excellent impact, and in the last three months has almost been top fragging for many rounds. Imo he’s a really good upcoming entry.

Pity that you have absolutely nothing to do with this. Only trying to get self esteem out of other people's achievements.

Feels so bad for Mertz lol, finally found a decent lineup and he doesn't even get a single lan before his teammates are bought out.

Nodios is an insane addition, the dude is nuts, and maNkz is pretty good to. This team can work out well honestly.
