Apeks complete roster with STYKO
Martin "STYKO" Styk has been announced as the final signing to Apeks, joining Joakim "jkaem" Myrbostad, Hugo "chawzyyy" Günther, and Tim "nawwk" Jonasson on the list of players that were brought on by the organization as they rebuilt their roster for the new year, keeping just Asger "AcilioN" Larsen from their previous lineup.
In October, FPX announced they would be discontinuing their CS:GO division, and STYKO has been sitting on the sidelines ever since, having last recorded an official map in the IEM Winter closed qualifier.
His addition to Apeks provides a stable backbone to the team as they look to greater heights in 2022, setting goals of making it to a Major and establishing a stable presence among some of the best teams in the world.
"Martin with his experience and knowledge of the game is a master of CS," Apeks' Head of Esports Anders Kjær stated. "He will bring the stability and know-how that we need in this new lineup. He knows so much about the game, and he has experience from several international lineups."
STYKO, has spent the past three months assessing options and keeping extraneous avenues open by doing content creation on the side. When Apeks came knocking though, he was intrigued by the combination of players they were putting together, specifically taking interest in the signing of 16-year-old chawzyyy.
"Despite having a lot of known and proven players around me, I'm most excited about working with our young-gun chawzyyy," STYKO said of joining the roster. "He is the talent I would like to work with and help him develop into a star. And that is partly what I will bring to the team. Guidance, experience, and general approach are all something I can aid the team with."
Apeks' complete roster is:
