Apeks sign AcilioN
The Dane will take over in-game leadership duties from Dennis "dennis" Edman.
Apeks have announced the signing of Asger "AcilioN" Larsen as their new in-game leader. Rasmus "kreaz" Johansson has been removed from the roster to make room for the 24-year-old and will be released from the organization when his contract comes to an end in late June.
The organization has explained that the move was made to "make the roles add up" and put every player in more comfortable positions. "We have chosen to sign AcilioN because he is an experienced captain and in-game leader," the team's coach, Pål "Polly" Kammen, has stated. "This means that dennis will get to focus on the things he does best, and the roles in the team will be much more natural."
AcilioN joins the Nordic team just three weeks after he was benched in Copenhagen Flames, where he played for six months in his second stint with the organization before the Danish side underwent an overhaul with the signing of MAD Lions duo Fredrik "roeJ" Jørgensen and Rasmus "HooXi" Nielsen.
The Dane's debut with the new team, who are currently ranked 63rd in the world according to HLTV.org's team ranking, is expected to take place in Spring Sweet Spring 3 Regionals, which is set to run from June 7-18.
Apeks now have the following squad:
Pål "Polly" Kammen (coach)
Rasmus "kreaz" Johansson (to be released in late June)
