Nordavind unveil international lineup

The team officially debuted today in the SteelSeries Invitational against FaZe.

Nordavind have signed a European roster for the 2021 season featuring Daniel "⁠mertz⁠" Mertz, Jesper "⁠TENZKI⁠" Plougmann, Kevin "⁠HS⁠" Tarn, Anton "⁠supra⁠" Tšernobai, and Sabit "⁠mirbit⁠" Coktasar, the Norwegian organisation announced on Tuesday.

HS and TENZKI are no strangers to Nordavind, having played for the organisation in the past. The Estonian was released in September 2020, while the Dane was transferred to x6tence in November, briefly competing alongside mertz before the Spanish organisation dropped the team and the players went their separate ways.

mirbit will be the in-game leader of Nordavind's new team

supra returns to action after several months on the sidelines following Gambit's signing of veteran Abay "⁠Hobbit⁠" Khasenov. mirbit, who will be taking up in-game leadership duties, was a free agent after deciding to leave ALTERNATE aTTaX at the end of 2020.

Nordavind's new roster made its first appearance earlier on Tuesday in a 16-11 defeat to FaZe in the SteelSeries Invitational. The team will be taking part in the ESEA Advanced division after the previous lineup finished 7th-8th in the ESEA MDL Season 35 Europe Relegation.

Nordavind's roster looks as follows:

Denmark Daniel "⁠mertz⁠" Mertz
Denmark Jesper "⁠TENZKI⁠" Plougmann
Estonia Kevin "⁠HS⁠" Tarn
Estonia Anton "⁠supra⁠" Tšernobai
Germany Sabit "⁠mirbit⁠" Coktasar

Denmark Dennis "⁠Rytter⁠" Rytter (coach)
