777 sign Grusarn, H4RR3 returns

The Norwegian organization has filled out its squad for 2022.

777 have announced their new lineup with the addition of Sander "⁠Grusarn⁠" Iversen in lieu of Ole "⁠Marcelious⁠" Kristian Langan and the return of former Dignitas player Haris "⁠H4RR3⁠" Hadzic.

The leading Norwegian squad, who won the Telia League 2021 Fall Finals in Oslo last November over the likes of Apeks Rebels and 00Prospects, will hope to break past their peak of 46th in the world ranking with the goal being to break into the top 30.

The transfer will see Grusarn reunited with his Apeks teammate Kristian "⁠akez⁠" Kornbakk, while H4RR3 is re-joining the squad he played with from April to November of 2021, after which he took a short leave at the end of the year before deciding to sign back up with his countrymen in 2022.

"Im ready to do some damage with this new roster," H4RR3 said of his return. "We are looking to evolve more than we did last time out and I feel we now have better players and chances to do so. I'm looking forward to compete with the boys again and win!"

Continuing with a national roster going into the new year, 777 will continue on their quest to elevate Norwegian Counter-Strike as the country has struggled to produce recognized lineups that can compete to break into the top echelons.

"With 777 I feel like I can reach some of my potential that lies within me and can bring the best out of me both as a player and a person," Grusarn said. "The organization already treats me as a family and I'm excited to continue with them getting Norwegian CS on the map again."

777 are now:

Norway Kristian "⁠akez⁠" Kornbakk
Norway Haris "⁠H4RR3⁠" Hadzic
Norway Mikael "⁠mikki⁠" Gaup
Norway Sander "⁠Grusarn⁠" Iversen
Norway Jonatan "⁠Ruyter⁠" Ruyter

Norway Snorre "⁠fletch⁠" Granerud (coach)

In 2020, before the signing Karrigan rumours came up, it was said on HLTV that Apeks is close to signing Rain, jkaem, and some others. Even the director tweeted it that it would be a dream to get them, iirc. It'd be hard to find it now. I'll try. Edit: google.com/amp/s/afkgaming.com/amp/story.. And this: hltv.org/forums/threads/2417176/rain-lea.. And this: google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url.. I can't find the exact interview though.

Well you would need both if you are aiming for a 5man norwegian team. If not then get another IGL
2022-01-05 11:32
I would have gone for: h4rr3, rain, jkaem (igl), hallzerk (rifle) and marcelious (awp). Hallzerk is a good rifler too. H4rre, rain, jkaem, akez (igl), hallzerk (awp) could be good too.

Grus and harre is at similar lvls imo. So he could replace him, would not make a huge difference imo

who's awping because I'm pretty sure marcelious is better than any of these? looks like h4rr3 didnt get any better offers...

His contract ran out, so he looked for better opportunities. 777 offered him a full salary so he took it. Makes perfect sense.

Why did H4RR3 comeback to this? He deserves better, he is a pretty fine young talent. Grusarn is pretty good to. But the core of akez, Ruyter and mikki won't achieve nothing I'm afraid. H4RR3 and Grusarn should build a new team together.
