KF3 behind new zX9 team

The zX9 tag has been revivified as Øyvind "KF3" Magnestad has announced a new team following the disbandment of .no.

When alchemists yesterday announced the acquisition of Karl William "kalle" Haraldsen and Tommy "tacky" Mosgaard, it became known that the .no team had disintegrated - despite the lack of any official statements.

The former NiP member Øyvind "KF3" Magnestad has composed a new team, bringing in Kenneth "REASTEN" Kristiansen, who recently left Never Ending Brotherhood, and a few international unknown faces.

The new squad will take on the name zX9, reviving a tag that hasn't been actively used since 2006. zX9 once housed old school Norwegian players, such as Lars "Naikon" Olaisen and Hallvar "knoxville" Dehli.

zX9 now have:

Norway Øyvind "KF3" Magnestad
Norway Hans Petter "CLd" Nykkelmo
Norway Benjamin "Ben" Brahimi
Norway Kenneth "REASTEN" Kristiansen
Norway Morten "zeves" Vollan

Contacted by HLTV.org, Magnestad said the team hopes to attend the newly announced fnatic PLAY opener, a tournament which will allow 64 teams to enter.

no organizations backing these teams isn't really good news, but having teams to chose from is some starting point.

2011-01-12 21:32
I give it four weeks. Not to be pessimistic or anything, but from what I've heard, no one likes playing in clan with Ben.. CLd is also retiring every month..
2011-01-12 21:33
why not just make a clan with all the best norweigan players than this... where's the structure... Sgt.XeqtR needs to come back and bust out his training regime.

He's been pretty much retired since they left MYM in 2007/2008. He is only been active in unserious clans, except for his recent spell in cbteam. I think that is the only time he has only tried to do something serious since the golden days.

"He is only been active in unserious clans". Did I say something else? He will for sure not join deathwish, I'm quite convinced about that.. If so, it will only happen because he is bored with poker..

Yeah. They're saying kalle, tacky, REASTEN, REAL, prb and syrtekz were all among the possible candidates. Surely sounds wild to me.

Did any of these players actually play under that tag? Quite strange if any of them did to actually use it. As for the team, well, as usual time will tell.
2011-01-13 00:04

No, no one did. They contacted one of the former players, probably Luke, and asked for permission.
