Jumpy announces retirement
Jimmy "Jumpy" Berndtsson has decided to announce his retirement from professional gaming, making space for ex-SK member Frej "kHRYSTAL" Sjöström.
It has been in the cards all week, that Frej "kHRYSTAL" Sjöström would join forces with MYM. The suggestions to who he would replace were many, but when it was announced that Sjöström would play the Swedish Championship instead of Jimmy "Jumpy" Berndtsson, the roster changes all of a sudden fell into place.
Berndtsson done with his pro-gaming stint
Berndtsson has decided to part with MYM and professional gaming, based on his motivations factor and the skill to keep the same energy for the game. Berndtsson was with MYM when the team switched from Begrip to MYM, taking second at Global Challenge Dubai 2010 and first at DreamHack Winter 2009.
It is no surprise that Berndtsson will be replaced by Sjöström, who this weekend is with the team in Stockholm, competing in the Swedish Championship. Emil "FYRR73" Karlsson will be the guy calling the tactics for the team, which originally was Berndtsson task.
MYM now house following squad:
Faruk "pita" Pita
Marcus "Delpan" Larsson
Marcus "zet" Sundström
Emil "FYRR73" Karlsson
Frey "kHRYSTAL" Sjöström
You can watch MYM play tomorrow, when facing H2k Gaming in the semi-final at the 2010 Swedish Championship.
