Apeks announce nawwk as second player of new roster

The former NIP member returns to activity after sitting on the bench for the majority of the year.

Apeks have announced the signing of Tim "⁠nawwk⁠" Jonasson. The AWPer joins Danish in-game leader Asger "⁠AcilioN⁠" Larsen during a rebuilding phase of the squad, which was initiated in the first half of November as the organization cut ties with four of their players, citing a need for a fresh start.

The 24-year-old Swede joins Apeks on a transfer from NIP, where he had been benched ever since the team made the blockbuster signing of Nicolai "⁠device⁠" Reedtz in late April. Since then the only officials on record that nawwk has played in were in August, when he helped POGGERZ win the Calyx Dune Cup Fall and qualify for BLAST Premier Showdown.

nawwk returns after spending the last eight months on NIP's bench

After an extended period on the sidelines, the AWPer returns eager to get up and running with his new team.

"I'm looking forward to starting playing again. It's been about 8 months since I played my last official game with NiP and sitting on the bench has both been a good and bad learning experience," nawwk said in a statement to Apeks.

"Starting from scratch will be a great feeling. It sure does mean we need to work a lot harder to get where we want to be, but it also brings a ton of motivation from every possible angle."

The new addition hinted at the remainder of the lineup as he said that all the players are coming from different teams. When asked about the rebuilding process and whether the organization has managed to line up any other players so far, however, Apeks Head of Esports, Anders Kjær, erred on the side of caution, as it seems that the contracts of the rest of the team are still yet to be inked.

"We have a clear vision of what we want our lineup to look like, but you never know for sure until everything is signed," Kjær shared. "We have narrowed it down to a few individuals for sure."

Apeks' roster now has:

Denmark Asger "⁠AcilioN⁠" Larsen
Sweden Tim "⁠nawwk⁠" Jonasson

Norway Pål "⁠Polly⁠" Kammen (coach)

Contracts expire December 31
Sweden Dennis "⁠dennis⁠" Edman
Sweden Fredrik "⁠FREDDyFROG⁠" Gustafsson
Sweden Joakim "⁠Relaxa⁠" Gustafsson
Norway Sander "⁠Grus⁠" Iversen
Norway Martin "⁠Nasty⁠" Garvik (loaned to FOXED)

What he did with mad lions was huge too.. took a bunch of guys and introduced them to tier 1, gave them a bunch of contracts ofc with god hundens help
2021-12-17 17:51
He can be ok at tier 2, top 20-25 max after that they need better igl.

They fit perfectly in the system, Jkaem as entry, JKS as your lurker/closer. It blows my mind that JKS is still on the sidelines and we don't see any rumors about his future... in his prime he was a star player on a top 5 team, Complexity was never going to work out with who they had and they forced him out of his comfort zone. Styko would be awesome as a support too. That team would be legit

AcilioN not the strongest player for sure but i dont think its 99% hes fault that they didnt achieve results. You need atleast 2 beast riflers, 1 anchor player, decent awp(rn its nawwk) and igl who atleast gets 12 kills per map. Previous teams with hes igl wasnt the strongest guys in the team. With decent players they can achieve something thats my guess

Hello Apeks. My name is hemy. I see you have some spots left, I have a excellent understanding of the game and its future, tons of experience as well. I am a people pleaser and always positive no matter the outcome. I think I will be a perfect fit for your team, with my 29 years of age I will provide comfort and chemistry around our organisation. My mentality is on top, and im not hot headed in clutch situations. My number one strength is that I need no salary for playing.

Glad to see nawwk getting chance to play again. Hope dennis also joins, missed seeing insane pistol clutches. Although I'm not sure he has the skills anymore but should be pretty decent still.
