CHEAPTIMES switch three
CHEAPTIMES have made their line-up official with the arrival of three players.
The changes to the Danish team come just days after they lifted the Danish Championship trophy at Copenhagen Games following a 2-1 victory over mTw in the Grand Final.
From the winning quintet, only Timm "ArcadioN" Henriksen and Christian "turkizh" Bindslev remain, with Morten "suraNga" Jensen, Søren "funatic" Nilsson and Martin "woodi" Holm all shown the exit door.
Stepping in will be Rasmus "FaagaN" Thomsen from Roskilde Ravens, as well as ex-Ab Ovo duo Finn "karrigan" Andersen and Nicolaj "Nuggi" Larsen, with Henriksen stating a quality jump has occured.
"I felt that we are more competitive with this line-up, with almost no weaknesses. Having four players on the Danish ENC squad speaks for itself, and and I'm sure Nuggi would be the next one asked to be there, had someone from the team declined" Henriksen told HLTV.org.
Henriksen noted he is confident CHEAPTIMES, who are currently looking for an organisation, have the necessary quality to retain the number-one status in the country they claimed at the weekend.
"I wouldn't have started playing seriously again if I didn't feel we had a chance to become the best," he added. "We have exceptional indiviual players, but it will take time and effort for us to think CS the same way.
"Most of us haven't played team CS together before, so that'll be a challenge, I just hope we can overcome that and become a team to fear. Teaming up with an organisation is by far the best way to go, and we have already initiated negotiations with some."
CHEAPTIMES now look as:
Timm "ArcadioN" Henriksen
Christian "turkizh" Bindslev
Rasmus "FaagaN" Thomsen
Finn "karrigan" Andersen
Nicolaj "Nuggi" Larsen
