ave misses first match in Kiev

Alexander "ave" Holdt will miss his team's first match at the IEM5 European Championship Finals in Kiev, as he is to attend an exam on Thursday.

mTw will face off against Meet Your Makers in their first match at the IEM5 European Championship Finals, a match scheduled for 13:00CET on Thursday. The Danes will however be without Alexander "ave" Holdt in this match, who is bound to attend an exam at his University.

This has forced mTw to call in a stand-in for the match against the Russians. The team has selected Jack "wazorN" Henriksen, former Full-Gaming member and brother of Timm ArcadioN Henriksen, to stand in for Holdt.

"Unfortunately we have to play our first game at the IEM in Kiev without our lovely ave. He has exams and this exam in particularly is very important for Alex. I wish him the best of luck and see you friday! - We have chosen wazorN as standin for the first match, and that was a pretty easy choice for us since he is ArcadioNs brother. Thanks to Jack for helping us out and he will act as a coach after the first match!" - Said Danny "zonic" Sørensen on mTw's website.

wazorN and suraNga from wCrea

wazorN - mTw stand-in for a day

For the match against MYM, mTw will play with the following:

Denmark Danny "zonic" Sørensen
Denmark Martin "trace" Heldt
Denmark Timm "ArcadioN" Henriksen
Denmark Oliver "minet" Minet
Denmark Jack "wazorN" Henriksen

Holdt will Thursday evening arrive in Kiev, making him eligible to play the remaining four group-stage matches mTw will play on Friday, when competing at the IEM5 European Championship Finals.

2011-01-16 23:42
Ave is almost always the worst of mtw. If not something goes terribly wrong. I guess as a tactical support wazorn is the best they can get.

I would agree with you in general, as he was the igl, and the worst fragger in mTw. But in 2010 he stood out, and after trace and zonic, I think he fragged more than minet and Sunde! But I'm not so sure :P

I am pretty sure that he most of the time left the server as the last, stats-wise seen. Sometimes he was better but if he was it was most of the time a bad sign for mtw :-)

He improved a lot since ArcadioN took over igl role. Actually he has been one of the best since then.

ArcadioN took that job as soon as he joined. ave still sits in the middle and help with the calls, but arcadion is the primary IGL.

2011-01-16 23:43
Goodluck Jack ! lucky they have Timm as IGL, this change shouldnt make that big of a difference, first game of groups is always a bit random.
2011-01-16 23:43
wazorn besides sunde is the best stand-in mtw can get. gl
2011-01-16 23:44
still no chance for MYM zonic and trace will ruin them

arcadion being igl, wazorN will do exactly what ave do, but with his brother beside him, it can help them in trainings, for 1 match, that's not a problem... they will beat mym easily
2011-01-16 23:53
it's sad cause wazorn is one of the best players in denmark, and yet without good clan

Doubt it. I think wazorN is out of shape compared to ave. He did not play in clan since the FG break up. I am not saying he is bad, but ave is just better :)

it doesn't mean that he hasn't other choices and approaches from orgs rather than lemondogs. It is possible that he’s studying other offers, regarding his personal life, offers that don’t force him to leave his home.

They'll win their first match regardless, might have a little close encounter but okay.

mTw should be able to win with a decent margin even with a standin:)
2011-01-17 01:56
Shouldn´t it be "ave misses first matches in Kiev"? Since he doesn´t miss the first match but a lot of them..
