Gux joins Lions

Rasmus "Gux" Ståhl is all set to complete a move to Lions, Niklas "niko" Johansson has confirmed.

The announcement was made by Johansson this afternoon in a video interview with rakaka.se after a QPAD shootout in Skövde.

Ståhl has been strongly linked with a move to Lions after he failed to join SK Gaming following his departure from fnatic earlier this month, and such stories were fueled by Johansson himself, who said "it would be fun" to play alongside the former EYEballers player again.


Gux seals Lions move

He will step into the shoes of Richard "Xizt" Landström, who left Lions for fnatic two weeks ago.

Meanwhile, Johansson revealed that all Lions players will from now on receive a salary, which will put them on the same level as SK and fnatic.

Lions now have:

Sweden Niklas "niko" Johansson
Sweden Frej "kHRYSTAL" Sjöström
Sweden Emil "FYRR73" Karlsson
Sweden Björn "threat" Pers
Sweden Rasmus "Gux" Ståhl

good pick =) sad for moddii though...
2010-12-17 23:33
Rumor has it that BARRBAR and MODDII will make a new team
2010-12-17 23:34
Good..it is still sad that swedish best fragger is without a team. Even if he has whined in the past..he should be playing in fnatic.
2010-12-17 23:36
I could see him playing in fnatic. MYM.sweXFnatic.
2010-12-17 23:57
+1 i dont get it why people cant tolerate whining from time to time,l if someone tells you to step the fuck up with your game maybe he is rigth? i would step up my game atleast, if only my ego was to big i migth not like to hear that, but that leads me to think that moddiii, the natural fragger, is so good that he often steps on the other "pros" high ego, he migth be too much cocky for the elite level players who think they are the best. imo moddii n1 after a 100%f0rest and delpan
2010-12-18 00:09
absolutely not, i take it uve never played with some1 who bitches and moans all the time? it brings ur whole teams morale down, making ur team's performance as a whole worse. 5 happy players > 4 upset players and 1 monster fragger. i mean it's not like he has a 2.0 fpr, in which case u might have a point. but even if that were the case, then he wouldnt be bitching since he probably wouldnt be losing.

2010-12-18 00:41
I agree its not nice to hear to bad words, but sometimes someone has to say the obvious. perhaps im just blinded and biased since im also a whiner in my team, but we are still together, im not a bad whiner, just sometimes there are stituation one should easily chose the rigth decision and rigth movement etc,etc and he does not, then I am overwhelmed to say somethnig. maybe bad, but idk really, differs from person to person i guesss
2010-12-18 00:52
i do not know what kind of player you are, but once in a while every1 whines or complains. this is acceptable, however does not relate to one person who CONSISTENTLY whines and brings team morale down as a whole. when you are at top pro level, easily fixable problems such as this should not be avoided, thus the removal of a whining player. *I am in no way saying moddii is this kind of player btw, for all i know he may have corrected his bitching ways and is an all around player these days. Im just stating if this was part of the reason moddii never got invited anywhere, its perfectly legitimate if he was this kind of a whiny player.*
2010-12-18 09:16
nobody likes a whiner
2010-12-18 11:22
theres a reason why no team haven't signed contracts with him. Hes not a team player. Ofc yes he is a good player, but not a team player. that's the reason why he isn't in fnatic or smthing like that)))

I thought barbarr was going to quit?
2010-12-18 00:06
me 2, He is focusing on school , if I remember well.. :S
2010-12-18 00:18
i thought barbarr stopped playing cs and started studying really hard
2010-12-18 00:35
yeah, but he has been playing alot of gathers recently with moddii, so no1 knows ;P i myself hope 2 se BARBARR back cuz hes a great AWPer! BARBARR,MODDII,Pronax,pop and zet would make a nice team. BAbbe has not been playing so good recently cuz he has been stuck with the iglrole and leaving it to pronax would be AWESOME
2010-12-18 01:09
why do people keep bringing up zet? his time passed when he moved to source and failed to get back to a respectable level in 1.6. I say throw out zet, bring in talent
2010-12-18 02:59
-99 (N)
2010-12-18 03:35
believe it or not his natural talent and skill will not pass by quite so easily. he may no longer be the most strategical and smartest player(nor the 1 with the best aim in the world like he was), but he definitely still has the skill to be a top player. Im telling u this as a long time NA player, who played against zet right after he quit Source. His aim was astonishing, and it probably still is. These days however, good aim wont carry u wherever u want to be in this game anymore. But it doesnt mean he cant make a comeback.
2010-12-18 09:24
agreed.. and go look at his highlights with SK in '08 and some of '09 and some of the shit he does very few can do.. i've played a bunch with him sense he was in America for awhile and i talked to him on friends list about playing and straight up told him that selling out to CGS and playing source ruined him being the best rifler in the world.. and he agreed, he just said he hate's RAGE org otherwise he'd be there new team that would be amazing BARBARR - IGL, primary awp manne - rifles, secondary awp zet - rifles, role player moddii - madfragger, aggressive like zet '05 and '06 style :D Dennis - rifles, role player(if he will continue, and it looks like BARBARR will, but nothing certain yet) if not Dennis than keiz, or qp could you imagine this lineup? i think they could easily challenge for top5 worldwide..they just need to use their fucking heads and quit tearing apart solid teams..if they joined up and committed they would be as good as any in the world imo GL, if they would read this and take my advice it would be their best movi imo :D can't wait to see zet back and prove all these guys wrong :D
2010-12-18 12:16
Take in qp and dennis only if you want a non serious team which will eventually break up..... It's all speculative at this stage....but seriously, I want to see moddii in a nice team...his aiming skill is just mind-blowing...haven't seen anything better. Maybe Barbarr manne moddii pronax zet
2010-12-18 13:37
keiz moddi zet dennis manne
2010-12-18 17:34
as zet doesn't even consider to come back, replace him with barrbarr and you have got a team that really can do serious damage
2010-12-20 23:05
nonsense, as usual...
2010-12-18 13:39
zet doesn't play anymore.
2010-12-18 17:50
ermm yeh I know that?
2010-12-18 18:10
i don't get it why people still wanna see zet in 1.6 teams after his source carreer he never got back to his old shape and there are far more talents with the same quality and skills as zet but with more potential like keiz, huggan dennis and manne
2010-12-18 23:30
yea its possibly , I saw that moddii and barbarr played together(some days ago) and no just onemore time
2010-12-18 09:45
-fyrr73 + moddii, -threat +walle Then you get the best team in SWE. +1 if u agree with me, folks.
2010-12-18 12:14
-1 DOn't agree. FYR773 is better than moddii and threat is better than walle
2010-12-18 13:36
FYRR73 better than moddii ? rly not
2010-12-18 13:59

2010-12-18 03:57
I dont get this bad rap about moddii, hes not difficult to work with but when your playing for one of the top teams in the world and your constantly carrying the team and if you dont get 2 frags each round you dont win it gets sickening after a while. Put Moddii in fnatic and he wont have any problems at all, with MYM he was their top fragger and each round relied heavily on him except when Delpan got nutty sniping and same with his time with SK. With Xizt as another rifle who could go toe to toe with his fraggin he wont have the pressure of being the lone rifler to hold a whole bombsite by himself and therefore won't lash out in anger. New team; BARBARR, MODDII , pronax , pop , keiz
2010-12-18 04:04
would be an epic team :>
2010-12-18 04:23
yea what has happened to barbarr? he was the hottest thing around and hasn't been seen since the last team he was in failed rage should add moddii and keiz, replacing whoever is the least motivated between pop and lidde imo pronax, manne, moddii, keiz, pop/lidde

MODDII deserves better than RAGE seriously. And for zet, seriously i don't think he have something to proove anymore because he just failed to get his skill back when he was playing 12hours per day (SK/MYM.se time). Anyway, i just hope that MODDII will go to FullGaming with Friis turkizh suraNga FaagaN, that would be a better team than RAGE.

moddi has no social ability, stop treating him as if you know whast best for the team. Niko has played with Gux, so Gux is the easy choice.
2010-12-18 16:09
We don't have the same definition for Social abilities then :) If u got a personal opinion share it, if u will repeat cArn's word like a dogmatic fanboy without brain don't post. MODDII deserves a spot on LIONS/SK/fnatic & basta.
