VIDI retires, allu leaves Playzone

October 14th, 2010 18:47 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 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:

Finland Joni "Freon" Huumo
Finland Ari "spin" Raimi
Finland Anton "RUMBLE" Mikkola (temporary)
Finland Jirka "jigetus" Ryhti (temporary)
Finland Matti "SPIKEONE" Järvinen (temporary)

Both munkka and Playzone will attend the Finnish DreamHack Winter qualifier, which, according to, will take place at the digiexpo in Helsinki between November 5-7.

2010-10-14 18:52
totally not agree bro, spikeone as always been extraordinary and about jigetus, hes really good though, most of the top stars are from scandinavia so he's like top20 :S
2010-10-14 19:00
ofc, but remember, he's like fox, if he didnt do 20+ frags, the team cant do even 7 rounds, he dont have good players to help him, like fnatic and na'vi, he is alone on the team :/ <3 jigetus

this is actually a pretty decent lineup if they would just stick together, keep the team spirit up and practice hard. however, finnish teams tend to fail on all three of those points...

2010-10-15 09:30
u maybe forgot "best finns of all time" players like diGital, GuA, mysse etc :B
2010-10-15 12:35
well i do remember all of them , zetor bloodR etc but the skill level is just so much bigger than it was before so thats why i didnt name them , i kinda mentioned up some "our time" players only :)

I don't think that those players are really "all-time" even though diGitaL did succeed well. If we were supposed to mention one player, I'd say bloodR.
2010-10-16 12:29
allu >>> RUMBLE
