Kjaerbye signs with Endpoint

Two months after announcing his return from retirement, Markus "⁠Kjaerbye⁠" Kjærbye finds a new home.

Endpoint have announced that they have signed Kjaerbye to round out their roster, filling the gap left after Mohammad "⁠BOROS⁠" Malhas decided to place himself on the bench and pursue other opportunities.

The move sees the Dane return to official activity for the first time in nearly a year. He last played in mid-2021 with a mix of mainly former North players called HYENAS, a project that he joined following a short and unsuccessful stint with FaZe and that ended up quickly disbanding.

Kjaerbye decided to hang up his mouse not long after that, citing a lack of hunger and dedication to the game, but in early April this year the former Astralis member revealed that he was ready to come back to being a professional player after rediscovering his love for competing.

Kjaerbye's back in the game with Endpoint

Now, two months later, Endpoint sign the Dane as they're looking to return to the top 30 following two critical additions in former MOUZ coach Allan "⁠Rejin⁠" Petersen and a Major winner and MVP in Kjaerbye, bringing a wealth of tier-one experience to a team that has largely competed on the lower tiers.

"It’s a truly exciting prospect to be able to bring Markus into the Endpoint CS team," the organization's CEO, Adam Jessop, stated. "There is no denying the caliber of talent and experience he will bring to the lineup. After having a number of conversations with him, I fully believe that he is as passionate and focused as ever, ready to continue his CS career again, and that we can help him along that journey."

"I'm delighted to say I have found the ideal place to pick up my rifle again with Endpoint," Kjaerbye said in a statement to Endpoint. "The people behind Endpoint, and the culture they have created, have again and again shown they have the structures to allow players to maximise their potential, which is exactly what I'm looking for."

Endpoint now have a little over a week to prepare for their debut with the new signing, which will take place in Jönköping, Sweden, where the team will play in the ESL Pro League Season 16 Conference stage for six spots in the main portion of the prestigious event.

Endpoint have:

Netherlands Joey "⁠CRUC1AL⁠" Steusel
United Kingdom Max "⁠MiGHTYMAX⁠" Heath
United Kingdom Kia "⁠Surreal⁠" Man
Israel Guy "⁠Nertz⁠" Iluz
Denmark Markus "⁠Kjaerbye⁠" Kjærbye

He did not "waste" 4 years of his prime. Someones's career is not someones's life. He probably learned more about himself these past four years than he ever did in his entire life.

Honestly the fact he’s only 24 is crazy, still could have a few really good years left in him. Even when he was on Faze he was still decent just unmotivated, GL to him.

Pog I really hope they are the next underdog story. I think kjaerbye deserves more majors.

Welcome back king, we have missed you <3 True legends never fade! I still get chills from the first Astralis major clutch rounds that turned around overpass then train. HELL YES <3 WE ARE READY!!!

Man I swear kyaerbye feels like someone that should be 28 or 29 but is still in the prime of his life in terms of reaction time and all that good stuff. It WAS pretty funny seeing them use footage of him destroying big on train when nex and smooya were still on the team hahaha, it's like if ENCE actually signed snax and used footage from 2014 to promote him lol
2022-06-08 14:21
how the migthy have fallen
2022-06-08 15:07
GREAT! now dev1ce will return to kick snakebye's ass
