Lions announce foreseen changes

Lions have confirmed to rakaka.se that they have indeed undergone the foreseen changes, changing Mattias "Snajdan" Andersen and Dennis "dennis" Edman for Björn "threat" Pers and Jim "zneel" Andersson.

The past weeks rumors has surfaced, suggesting Lions would undergo the change of two. Several screenshots of the team practicing strengthened the possibility of the changes to actually come through.

Christophe "Monk" Roblin, Lions chairman, Saturday confirmed to rakaka.se that the Swedish team had gone through the change of two. The changes bring back Björn "threat" Pers, who in May announced he had gone inactive in order to focus on his studies. Jim "zneel" Andersson is also back in action after a long period without a team, ever since he got booted out of SK Gaming.


threat returns from inactivity

Lions now have:

Sweden Emil "FYRR73" Karlsson
Sweden Frej "kHRYSTAL" Sjöström
Sweden Niklas "niko" Johansson
Sweden Björn "threat" Pers
Sweden Jim "zneel" Andersson

When confirming the roster changes, Roblin also confirmed that the team will not be travelling to Bilbao next week, meaning they will be skipping GameGune.

Nice! :D

2011-07-17 18:15
looks good on paper but i doubt it will be THAT successful. they will do OK results but i think threat is still studying and zneel is working(?) so i doubt they will have that much time to actually play. but IF they manage to get the hours in, they've got a good chance to start grabbing high placings again at top events.

Well, if zneel is back with is old form, then this team could be a top3 Sweden team again.

better than before still missing smth!
2011-07-18 01:56
This lineup will fail miserably. Dennis > zneel hands down. They will finally disband. Mark my word.
2011-07-18 03:07
zneel is one of the most OVERrated players in Europe...everyone thought he was the next f0rest after SK signed him out of nowhere and he failed miserbly with them and will do the same with Lions....minus zneeel + keiz and they will be a top 5 team. FYRR73 threat kHRYSTAL keiz niko That is the best possible Swedish lineup excluding SK/fnatic players.

there are many demos in which he played amazing. he played for sk and he is far far better than dennis.
