twist and PlesseN join Finest
The Swedish duo will join the squad ahead of their debut at ESL Challenger League Season 40 Europe.
Simon "twist" Eliasson and Niclas "PlesseN" Plessen have joined Finest, the organization announced on Twitter. The duo, which had recently played under the banner of Savage, will round out the now Swedish-majority lineup after their failure to reach the last 16 in the open qualifiers for the PGL Major Antwerp Europe RMR.
Thie pair played for Savage for over four months, with their best placement coming at the closed qualifiers for ESL Challenger Anaheim 2022, placing second and failing to reach the event after losing to DBL PONEY, now HEET, in the final match.
A familiar name in the Swedish scene, twist has had a journeyman career, playing for several Swedish teams over the years such as fnatic, GODSENT, and Ninjas in Pyjamas. In his last stint with Savage, the 27-year old only managed to accumulate an unimpressive 0.99 rating, and will probably look to take the role of the veteran figure in a young squad.
PlesseN, meanwhile, comes into Finest after a solid stint with his previous squad, displaying good performances at Elisa Invitational Winter 2021 and Pinnacle Winter Series 2 Regionals. The 23-year old is not a rookie, however, having already played for various lineups through his career such as GamerLegion and Red Reserve following his departure from the fnatic Academy in 2017.
The new roster will debut at ESL Challenger League Season 40 Europe, playing SINNERS on the opening round of Group D on March 7 at 19:00 .
