SK pick moddii for WCG Nordic

SK Gaming have registered Andreas "moddii" Fridh for the upcoming WCG Nordic finals.

The Swedish giants have been on the lookout for a new permanent fifth since losing Rasmus "GuX" Stahl to fnatic earlier in the month.

Fridh, who is a free agent following the disbandment of Meet Your Makers' Counter-Strike team, has been registered by SK Gaming for the WCG Nordic finals, which will be played from 5-8 August in Helsinki, Finland.

This will be the second event for Fridh with the colours of SK after playing for the team at Arbalet Cup Dallas, where they finished 5th-6th.

moddii and face from SK Gaming

Fridh to continue with SK

SK can still make changes to their line-up for the WCG Nordic finals, but with the event only two weeks away, and with SK having also to play the Extreme Masters Global Challenge Shanghai before travelling to Helsinki, it looks unlikely they will look elsewhere.

SK will attend the WCG Nordic finals:

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

nice :)

moddii is moore a player with those mad frags in the movies, he still need to put a lot of work in to team work.. TBH i was surprised by his performance in Dallas, he was great.. Hope from SK best performance, for the 1st place guys!
2010-07-20 00:41
I think his team work is fine he just needs to stop whining (that's what got him kicked out of MYM a long time ago).
2010-07-20 00:43
I think moddii matured a lot since his time in MYM and hopefully he will be able to prove that within SK. GL dude
2010-07-20 01:03
PRobably gonna keep him perm?
2010-07-20 00:41
Good to hear this. Gl moddii
2010-07-20 00:42
great :D

moddii ;D
2010-07-20 00:45
moddii, go sign conctract with SK :P
2010-07-20 00:46
moddii looks cool
2010-07-20 00:48
poor mooddii...another future unpaid player by sk xD
2010-07-20 00:49
Spain ferk 
If he doesn't sign the contract, yes, like in any other job.
2010-07-20 01:52
Poland jMS 
Stand-in here, stand-in there. He's gonna join SK permanently for sure. And that's a good move i think.
2010-07-20 00:49
I think SK know, that they cant beat fnatic now. Sad;'(
2010-07-20 00:51
2010-07-20 00:51
Yeah <3
2010-07-20 00:54
sk will be powerful but i think walle needs to retire and pick up delpan instead and robban go rifles.
2010-07-20 00:55
I think this changes would make them one of the top 3 teams together with fnatic and Na'Vi =]
2010-07-20 01:10
f0rest | 
Sweden ikwal 
as much as I like walle i think it would be a good choice to let him go and bring in delpan. They desperately need a good awper. I think that's what's been holding them back.
2010-07-20 10:32
yes thats exactly what i meant gj ikwal. :D keep up the good work. i think its gonna happen also if they wanna compete else we will see the old ppl retire together and sk have to build up a team from the start. allen robban walle that is.
2010-07-20 10:45
moddiii played very well for SK at Arbalet USA. He has the perfect style to fit in at SK.
2010-07-20 00:57
Now, he might get his own shirt!
2010-07-20 01:00
he was a beast at arbalet
2010-07-20 01:01
Macedonia Veky 
moddiii is currently their best player among with face, allen was also insane at Arbalet Dallas.
2010-07-20 01:01
He's a good addition as long as SK can keep his temper down for the most of the time. But I still don't think the current SK (with the assumption moddii joins), can do damage to fnatic or Na`Vi. They need another change, a sniper is missing. walle hasn't been what he was used to be, but he's great for the chemistry of the team. Anyway, good luck SK!
2010-07-20 01:01
Sweden ezk 
I think SK will get better with Delpan for robbaN (sry for my bad englsih)
2010-07-20 01:01
Sweden psyy 
Wrong, robbaN is way better than walle. Walle needs to retire, and delpan needs to join.
2010-07-20 01:05
if walle retires...robban will follow..and if robban and walle retires probably allen will
2010-07-20 10:22
yeah and whos gonna take the IGL part? robban is a genius, and walle dont need to be replaced. I think the line-up is good as it is now.
2010-07-20 13:43
robban is igl so i guess it would be strange to do that, the whole team would be fucked up rly but walle seems to be off and hes not delivering imo so maybe he should retire.
2010-07-20 01:06
Well since Robban, walle and allen is really good friends i dont think they will continue playing for SK if one of them get kicked. The samething as F0rest,cArn and dsn in fnatic.
2010-07-20 01:13
only time will tell but i think its sad that walle isnt playing awp as before its rare to see him with it, he was imba with it. To be top 3 as they should be they need to do changes imo. 1.Na'vi 2.Fnatic 3.Mtw (based on lineup.)
2010-07-20 01:23
robban allen and walle r sk's core they shouldnt retire
2010-07-20 11:10
too bad the 4 grandpas in the team will downgrade him:)))))))))))))))))))
2010-07-20 01:02
+ delpan - walle :D moddi face delpan robban allen was nice
2010-07-20 01:07
-allen +get_right -robban +real -face +starix And that's it, your team is all done
2010-07-20 01:11
1) why would get_right change if fnatic is top 3? 2) why would SK choose a player from norway if there are plenty of talents in sweden, specially now that mym disbaned 3) same reasons stated above...
2010-07-20 01:18
Well...maybe the irony is no your major skill I guess. I'll explain myself though. This thread has nothing to do with the fact of other players joining SK Gaming due to the very recent addition of Andreas "moddii" Fridh, so asking for them to sign Delpan or whoever is, at least for me, so off-topic. Hope you understood this time. Enjoy your day.
2010-07-20 05:05
Sweden ezk 
+Delpan -walle +BARBAR -Robban ? :o +moddii -Gux ? :o +face +allen ?
2010-07-20 01:39
Would be nice yes, but as I said before this is about moddii participating of WCG Nordic Qual. with SK and not concerning for any roster changes at all.
2010-07-20 05:07
BUAHAHAHA GAHAHHAA, ty for the laugh :)
2010-07-20 13:44
At least someone understood the joke :D
2010-07-20 20:15
2010-07-20 01:03
yeah i think they need a top awper to be fighting with the biggest and robban isnt a top awper but hes good with rifles anyways. -walle +delpan
2010-07-20 01:13
zet is better choose because chemistry!
2010-07-20 01:11
would be nice to see zet out there with walle again but imo he needs to practice a lot, I think he's beed out of touch lately.
2010-07-20 01:12
zet+robban+walle = NiP NiP = win !
2010-07-20 01:14
hahahah the big times :D
2010-07-20 04:59
but he is a bot. He has played to much and burnt out * I think thats what happens to your style if you play to much like + 6 hours a day, some greatest players i know have played since year 2002, but they never play more than 2 h a day at max, but they play more fresh and intelligent, this is a pattern I see often. *I dont know why I replied this to you, I just had something to say i guess, lol
2010-07-20 07:57
Heaton played 10 hours a day, and I wouldn't say he was bad? On of the best players ever :)
2010-08-07 01:22
walle aka CS1.5 its just sad to see how blind are the guys in SK ...
2010-07-20 01:15
but walle is a brand name, a legend, and have tons of experience + very marketable for SK, like a icon, is not only skills that counts
2010-07-20 07:59
I hope moddii stays in SK permanently
2010-07-20 01:25
i hope moddii stays and they remove face for manne or xizt
2010-07-20 01:37
neah..i hope h2k will not disband ,they have the strenght to beat the giants:)
2010-07-20 01:42
grow up kid , face gameplay is better than that of manne .
2010-07-20 05:20
remove Whole eG ROSTER AS THEY SUCK HARD . that would be good
2010-07-20 05:20
do you even watch matches? Asking to cut face? One of their best players...
2010-07-20 07:06
just my thoughts. in america you can say what you want. god bless you
2010-07-20 07:58
in you can disagree with ppl's opinions.
2010-07-20 09:52
this is HLTV not ur america , so kindly post that is meaningful. LOL @ Cutting face :D
2010-07-20 19:12
good choice
2010-07-20 01:37
gl in sk modii :d
2010-07-20 01:42
2010-07-20 01:46
Expected. Hope moddii will stay :)

2010-07-20 02:25
stupid assholes saying walle should retire when he is the most important player for SK walle played fine in Dallas as well as moddii, the other three didn't deliver..walle is still a beast GL moddii
2010-07-20 02:31
No, not really. walle had the worst k/d ratio. Robban is now the most important player in SK. He is the IGL. walle is just a player..
2010-07-20 02:57
he is definitely not the MOST important player for way. robban is leading in-game and each player on this team is better than walle tell me what is walle doing in there? throwing flashes? :P
2010-07-20 07:08
well why do you think moddii and face can frag ? becouse walle and robban standing behind them flashing :P you cant have 5 madfraggers.
2010-07-20 11:30
I am not the one who will go for 5 madfraggers either man....its just that if you can do the routine AND can frag good simultaneously, you are much more valuable than a guy who can only do routine and dies quickly making it a 4v5 every round :)
2010-07-20 14:19
Im good at flashing!!!!Can I join SK then?
2010-07-21 17:27
Take it easy. Thank you.
2010-07-20 20:19
go permanent moddii !!! i'm sk's fan now !!!!!!!!!!!
2010-07-20 02:41
i hope he signs his contract...
2010-07-20 02:54
hope SK gets him a shirt with his own name on it

so glad, GL man
2010-07-20 06:33
MODDII has the potential to be THE BEST if he gets good exp and teams use him in the right way. Right now he is not very good with peeks and clutches. All said and done..this SK lineup can't consistently win against top 3: Navi, mtw and fnatic. If I were to go for a new team...I would do - walle and robban (they won't play alone anyway) + delpan and zyppe this without disturbing h2k lineup...otherwise xizt would be a great choice!
2010-07-20 07:16
MODDI madfrager -.-
2010-07-20 07:24
niceee!!! :D
2010-07-20 07:38
i hope they will make a tshirt with his name ! :D
2010-07-20 07:42
Moddii skill has never been questioned, he is #1 aimer, but his "unique" chemistry is what has given team headaches from time to time, (or team to team i should say, lol) anyway, go moddii my favorite player destroy CS with allen shirt :D

If you use the 'Reply' button the user will/would know you replied to him/her ;)
2010-07-20 20:21
I know walle didn't perform like the walle we know in the last tournaments but everyone has bad days so not giving him a chance isn't the best decision. I would say that WCG Nordic can decide whether walle can still deliver and help the team. Otherwise I would choose Delpan in his place.
2010-07-20 09:58
moddii will be SK 5 player
2010-07-20 09:58
this will be nice :)
2010-07-20 10:33
variant 1 - I hope Tentpole back to SK and zet, Delpan, MODDII, pita and BARBARR/Jumpy will create a new team :) variant 2 - MODDII to SK and Tentpole to old MYM :)
2010-07-20 10:34
moddii is best :P
2010-07-20 11:07
he showed a good performance last week
2010-07-20 11:08
I think if walle will retire, RobbaN will follow him to, because he sayed in one of his interviews that he is too old to play cs :)
2010-07-20 11:13
they are also reaaly good friends so dont think they will play without eachother+ Allen is good friend with both of them so if one of them goes i think all three is gone. Same with Carn,dsn and forest in fnatic.
2010-07-20 11:31
if thats the case allen is gone aswell and then sk will have hard time to get a top team again.
2010-07-20 16:17
Tentpole. where are you now . i miss you much lol. i hope tentpole back to sk . sk'line up :walle , robaan , tentpole , zet , allen its my favour line up anyway , good luck moddie xDDD
2010-07-20 11:33
yeah this line up my favorite, they beat golden mTw...
2010-07-20 15:12
well moddi is already in SK-Gaming players list and on moddi´s profile he has team: SK
2010-07-20 11:36
-walle -robban !!! +pita, zet or other!!

gl moddii! you deserved it
2010-07-20 12:17
they will fail anyway since gux left...
2010-07-20 12:20
go sk! <3
2010-07-20 12:42
Sweden Traitorz0r 
I wanna see SK > fnatic.
2010-07-20 13:17
Moddii will just get better and better after playing with SK, you'll see.
2010-07-20 13:44
it would seem better if delpan got in instead of gux in fnatic
2010-07-20 13:45
2010-07-20 13:48
moddi > gux
2010-07-20 13:50
n/c ...
2010-07-20 14:49
Just add him permanently and stop messing around
2010-07-20 14:00
This is nice for SK , moddii is very good player!
2010-07-20 14:11
Now kick walle and get delpan and you got yourself a nice team.
2010-07-20 14:20
Ye, did you notice what his price was at the end of Arbalet Dallas in dreamteam.. Like 80,000 or something LOL!
2010-07-20 14:25
Just give him a contract. It´s obvious that moddii is the 5th player :D GL to SK :D
2010-07-20 14:42
they need to kick walle and add delpan..and maybe another player to replace robban
2010-07-20 15:09
moddii is like old GeT_RiGhT , if you give him a chance for 2,3 month , he will be frag machine!
2010-07-20 15:09
gl moddiii
2010-07-20 16:14
-moddii +Delpan But it would be great if they kicked some of the old school players.
2010-07-20 17:52
with ak/colt its moddii>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>delpan They got walle with the awp, when he is on fire with that he´s awesome
2010-07-20 18:08
moddiii is great player but is he's attitude right for such a great team as SK? Well, time will tell.
2010-07-20 18:20
how old is he?
2010-07-20 19:24
He is 21.
2010-07-20 20:22
He looks younger though

Nice for you moddii, but don't forget your fans and friends :)
2010-07-20 19:30
moddii good player, but Gux, I think, stronger gamer, fnatic, have a good line-up, I think, that they will lose in final WCG Na`Vis
2010-07-20 20:45
Portugal Cyborgy 
ofc gux is gux,but see the impact that moddi made to sk gaming,they are playing lot more fast paced,if he can bring delpan instead of walle sk will be one of the deadliest teams around there : ) sk wont even notice gux missing
2010-08-07 01:58
walle has had an amazing career but i think his time is finally passing, shame. Delpan would be an amazing replacement.
2010-07-21 05:41
2010-07-21 16:57
moddii was great at Arbalet =)
2010-07-22 01:16
