HLTV.org has learned that Aleksi "allu" Rundberg has stopped playing for Playzone in order to link up with his former team.
It was for two months ago that Playzone had announced the recreation of their Finnish-based team, following a dispute between Joni "Freon" Huumo and Kimmo "BASiC" Fagerholm which then led to the squad's demise.
The team currently holds last-place in the ESL Pro Series Nordic III league, in which the team has not been able to rack up any points so far.
When quizzed about the situation, Rundberg confessed to HLTV.org that he did not feel that team spirit was a playing factor in the squad. "Things just didn't click", he noted.
Meanwhile, the former AndThenSome member Atte "VIDI" Hyväkkä has decided to put a stop to his professional gaming career. The reason behind his call is said to be that Hyväkkä did not feel that he was on top of his game anymore.
In order to have a team capable of competing, Playzone has called upon ex-4Kings ace Matti "SPIKEONE" Järvinen to perform as a temporary stand-in, while Rundberg has linked up with his old teammates in munkka.
Playzone now have:
Joni "Freon" Huumo
Ari "spin" Raimi
Anton "RUMBLE" Mikkola (temporary)
Jirka "jigetus" Ryhti (temporary)
Matti "SPIKEONE" Järvinen (temporary)
Both munkka and Playzone will attend the Finnish DreamHack Winter qualifier, which, according to sett.fi, will take place at the digiexpo in Helsinki between November 5-7.
