SK bring in moddii for Arbalet Dallas

SK Gaming have announced they will use Andreas "moddii" Fridh as a stand-in for Rasmus "GuX" Stahl at Arbalet Cup Dallas.

The ESWC runners-up have been forced to find a last-minute replacement for Stahl as the Swedish star is poised to return to his former home fnatic.

Fridh's future remains a big question mark after his team parted ways with Meet Your Makers earlier this month.

He is no stranger to stand-in shoes, having played for H2k Gaming on a temporary basis for Arbalet Cup Europe in May.

Whether he will earn a permanent switch to SK Gaming after the tournament in the United States remains very much subject to conjecture, and it may largely depend on his performances at the tournament.

Arbalet Cup Dallas will take place from July 16-18, a $80,000 tournament which HLTV.org will cover on site.

SK will attend Arbalet Cup Dallas with:

Sweden Dennis "walle" Wallenberg
Sweden Johan "face" Klasson
Sweden Jimmy "allen" Allén
Sweden Robert "RobbaN" Dahlström
Sweden Andreas "moddii" Fridh

why?
2010-07-14 15:05
Because Gux is amazing.
2010-07-14 15:21
XDD good reason
2010-07-14 15:51
I think its all happening for good. Fnatic becomes strong again and who knows SK might do very well with moddii (atleast he got a chance in a top team)....his aim is second to none.
2010-07-14 18:02
hate this man... i wanted delpan to join a top team for a change... he is more of an impact player than moddii...
2010-07-14 19:48
walle is there.. robban is there :) i think now of course SK Gaming manager Anton Budak don't want to make SK as a AWP TEAM after recruit Delpan :) thats y :)
2010-07-15 05:05
I thought kHRYASTAL was good player dan modii
2010-07-15 07:02
hmm.. v can say that but we cant underestimate moddiiiiiii.. he is fcking crazy aimer :)
2010-07-18 03:59
yeah bro.. he played really gud in ARBELET dallas.. GL for SK

2010-07-14 15:11
fuck this!
2010-07-14 15:12
Gux is back @ fnatic ;))!!
2010-07-14 15:12
Weird that they remove kHRYSTAL for his behaviour and now consider taking moddii wich got removed for the same reason in a team..
2010-07-14 15:12
he is for now jsut stand in
2010-07-14 15:15
khrys was removed because, they had to remove some1 in order to bring gux in, and since face who was the new one in sk, as well as khrys, did better than khrystall they removed khry and kept face. But I am glad for khrystal that he was removed, seeing him how he plays for H2K now, and in the near future, H2K will rock Sk's ass big time.
2010-07-14 15:24
yeah Gux fucked up Khrystal getting him out of SK...and now he leaves SK in a lurch just before a major tournament.... whatever.. I didn't expect any more professionalism in esports anyway....players and orgs have been acting like this the whole time
2010-07-14 18:04
good step...
2010-07-14 15:13
"Fnatic offered Rasmus money to not play Arbalet with SK Gaming, an event Fnatic is not playing even."
2010-07-14 15:13
They want gux to join fnatic for chengdu's practice. It has nothing to do with jealousy or competition.

2010-07-14 15:14
"Unfortunately Sam Mathews and Fnatic seem to be so desperate that they pushed the whole thing further and the result makes no side a winner here to be honest. The relationship SK Gaming and Fnatic had in the past is overshadowed if not destroyed by this move. Fnatic offered Rasmus money to not play Arbalet with SK Gaming, an event Fnatic is not playing even." gayy!
2010-07-14 15:15
Uh oh. Everyone is playing for second place behind fnatic now.
2010-07-14 15:15
This just doesn't make any sense, at all... Perhaps he could tell us now why he left fnatic in the first place
2010-07-14 15:15
OMG, what an "pro" organization fnatic is, what a shame to pay Gux to not play in Dallas with SK, omfg i really liked Gux, but after this he would be shamed, fnatic = fair play -10000000 I hope Delpan will join SK, and moodi instead of allen ! Sry 4 my english...

2010-07-14 15:31
the SK organization has done far dirtier things in the past.. fnatic wanted to ensure as much time practicing with there new lineup and if that means getting gux before arbalet dallas then so be it. my opinion
2010-07-14 15:32
fuck you gux & fnatic
2010-07-14 15:33

2010-07-14 15:33
As long as I know, Gux was not happy with fnatic in later 2009 because his salary was lower than anybody else. He broke up from the team beacause of this, and the others removed him. back then he was right, as he was maybe the best player they had, holding those key position, being aggressive when they needed to do something special. Now if Gux decide to return to fnatic, I think that he must have managed to discus about an equal salary, or near f0rest's, gtr
2010-07-14 15:34
i think moddi fits nice in sk, so i hope he stays.

Reading the SK's statement, what a shame move from fnatic...
2010-07-14 15:35
So, guys. I think SK just not motivated, they also can beat fnaticMSI, but they haven't motivation. In my opinion, SK's line-up is better, then fnatic's line-up. You can say "NO", but its just my opinion. I think, Na`Vi - top1 this year, but SK Gaming good too. Why are you say FNATIC - TOP1 EVER? They lose WCG, lose Best OF Four, Lose ESWC and more, and more, and more, and more. I think Na`Vi and SK - are two best teams now.
2010-07-14 15:36
they were, before this!! this is just a disaster for SK.. my goodness..

because fnatic used to be the best team, anyway mtw is probably better than SK.
2010-07-14 16:13
Also better than fnatic, if you see they latest & oldest matches. Btw Gux -> fnatic TOP1 & SK needs Delpan, than just few months and NaVi will be raped. (I hope so :$)
2010-07-14 17:59
FUCK FUCK FUCK!! fucking idiots!! i hope fnatic never to win a freakin tournament ever again.. cmon sk, ADD DELPAN PLS!!
2010-07-14 15:37
woow Sk just started to work together too. Very bad for them. And Moddii? Another random player? Very bad idea. There is a much bigger pool in Sweden right now to pull from then to just keep adding moddii to teams. No good....
2010-07-14 15:40
moddii is no "random" player...easily one of the top contenders for any open spot in a top team in sweden
2010-07-14 18:05
nah, his performance is not consistant. He's good sometimes... thats what I mean by random.

Can anybody explain my what was the point of this shit. Why the hell Gux went to SK to come back to fnatic after half of the year? It's like ManU sold Ronaldo to Real, and after few months Ferguson calls to Cristiano and says: "Hey Cris I'll pay you money for not scoring goals and in June you'll go back to England"
2010-07-14 16:03

2010-07-14 16:23
well... he really helped them a lot recently, without him the team would have been crushed by a lot of teams, it must be boring to carry a team all the time
2010-07-14 16:59
yop but with him SK can be on top now they will falldown
2010-07-14 17:39
yeh it's possible cuz I doubt moddiii will really fit with the team (even though I really hope he will cuz he and SK deserve to be successful) but in a way it's more logical now, the best swedish first-fragger is now back in the best swedish team
2010-07-14 17:42
moddii is better player than Gux imho, but everything depends on partnership with other players in team.
2010-07-14 19:47

Now they gotta replace the old Walle once he steps down with Delpan or Khrystal.

SK always complaining about player's attitudes, and who do they choose? lovely moddii..

Moddii is a great player! He should be added permanently to SK! Goodluck Moddii and SK in Dallas!

-face + khrystal -gux +moddii SK: walle allen RobbaN Khrystal Moddii will win many champs in the future

They should have picked up moddii a while ago to replace walle. alleN , RobbeN , face deserve a solid 4th and 5th and now that Gux is gone they should pickup moddiii and Delpan, without Gux I dont see them competing at all with fnatic and maybe not even H2k anymore
