Tricked sign zyp

The 22-year-old will take over calling duties from Dennis "⁠sycrone⁠" Nielsen, who has been sidelined with immediate effect.

Tricked have announced the signing of Mads "⁠zypztw⁠" Hermansen to the active roster as the team’s new in-game leader in place of sycrone, who is actively looking for new opportunities with the assistance of the organisation.

zypztw joins the Danish side from Alpha and will reunite with three former teammates in his new team: Andreas "⁠kiR⁠" Kirstein, Oliver "⁠kwezz⁠" Rasmussen and Philip "⁠Lucky⁠" Ewald. The players previously competed together on maquinas in 2019 before the trio later made the switch to Tricked.

zyp will call the shots for Tricked moving forward

The change marks the end of a nine-month tenure for sycrone after the Dane was picked up by the organisation in May 2020. The 25-year-old has also played for the likes of North Academy, Sprout and Copenhagen Flames in the past.

Tricked CEO Morten Jensen hailed sycrone as a "quality pickup" for a team lacking structure and explained that the organisation favoured zypztw for the new direction in which they want to take the team.

"We went on a different route in our playing style to fit our team's roles a bit better and that made our needs for a different type of IGL," he explained.

The Danish team, currently ranked 61st in the world, will compete with Lyngby Vikings, Astralis Talent and Copenhagen Flames in the Nordic group of the Snow Sweet Snow 2 Regionals for the chance to make another appearance in the tournament's Regional Swiss stage after finishing 9th-11th in Season 1.

With this change, Tricked consists of:

Denmark Andreas "⁠kiR⁠" Kirstein
Denmark Oliver "⁠kwezz⁠" Rasmussen
Denmark Philip "⁠Lucky⁠" Ewald
Denmark Mathias "⁠PR1mE⁠" Carlsen
Denmark Mads "⁠zypztw⁠" Hermansen

Denmark Dennis "⁠sycrone⁠" Nielsen (benched)

Istg I would hate Astralis org so much more if they actually sold Xyp. They're scummy asf anyway and this would've been the Icing on the cake. Yeah, Es3tag seemed like a nice 5th and his chemistry with Dupreeh was fun but how tf do you even THINK about splitting the goat lineup up?
