f0rest to stand in for ex-Finest at Swedish LAN
The 34-year-old will temporarily return to competition at a local offline event.
Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg will compete at the Svenska Cupen 2022 with ex-Finest, the Swede announced on a recent stream. The veteran rifler will replace Rasmus "kreaz" Johansson in the squad as the 24-year-old has not played with the lineup since Finest closed its esports operations earlier in October.
f0rest has not remained inactive since being sidelined from Dignitas. The Swede recently stood-in for fnatic at the Pinnacle Cup Championship and helped the European squad claim a narrow win against Heroic in the group stages.

Ninjas in Pyjamas will be the most recognizable name on the list of teams attending as the Swedish core starts its journey at the event directly from the semi-finals. ex-Finest will also be waiting in the second round of playoffs while EYEBALLERS with Robin "flusha" Rönnquist and Jesper "JW" Wecksell will begin their campaign in the quarter-finals.
The LAN finals will be played in a single-elimination format with best-of-three matches across the board and a third-place decider.
