SK Gaming have announced the return of Marcus "Delpan" Larsson, removing Martin "trace" Heldt in the process.
The Swedish hotshot returns to SK Gaming after being replaced by Heldt in late January. In an interview with HLTV.org, Larsson gave reason to his departure with his lack of motivation.
Larsson has now regained his motivation, he said. After receiving a call from SK Gaming manager Anton Budak saying the team wanted him back, the decision of making a comeback was easy.
"End of January I got "removed" from the team, I was out of shape and unmotivated to the game and I didn’t bring the A game from me at all.
So after some weeks working out and just been away from the game I got a phone call from Budak this weekend telling me the team want me back and that made me really motivated again so the answer was easy.
So I would like to thank the team for believe in me and I’ll do my best to be the best AWPer in the world again, watch out ;)," Larsson told the team's website.
The Swedish team enjoyed quite an impressive run with Larsson before he was replaced by Heldt, coming out on top of events such as GameGune, IEM6 GC New York, DreamHack and ESWC.
SK Gaming's announcement does not give any details to Heldt's removal other than the obvious. The Dane served the team for less than three months, and the news came as a surprise to most.
However, Heldt revealed to XplayN.com that communication has been a problem for them, adding that Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund and Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg have had a hard time understanding Danish, which is Heldt's first language.
Commenting on his own future, Heldt said he has exams coming up in June, and if these do not collide with DreamHack Summer, he will probably make an appearance with a Danish team.
While donning the colors of SK Gaming, Heldt assisted the team in getting them to the TECHLABS final, which they did not play, placing 4th at IEM6 WC and 5-6th at Copenhagen Games.
SK Gaming now have:
Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund
Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg
Johan "face" Klasson
Robert "RobbaN" Dahlström
Marcus "Delpan" Larsson
