threat retires, wenton joins WinFakt
Following a disappointing showing at DreamHack Summer 2012, Björn "threat" Pers has retired from gaming and will be replaced by John "wenton" Eriksson in WinFakt.
The former Lemondogs squad's first event under the WinFakt tag was DreamHack Summer 2012 where they failed to advance from the group stage in the main tournament with ties against Virtus.pro and SK Gaming and placed third in the Swedish Championship after losing versus both SK and fnatic.
threat's last tournament was DreamHack Summer's 2012 edition
This isn't the first time Pers has gone inactive, as he decided to step down for a while last year due to school, which could be the reason for him opting to stop playing for now. On WinFakt's site, Pers stated he is leaving pro gaming for the time being to focus on other things in life.
As a replacement WinFakt have acquired John "wenton" Eriksson who has never been among the top of the Swedish scene before, having mostly represented teams on the lower end of the spectrum. His most notable former team is a2g.

Frej "kHRYSTAL" Sjöström

Jim "zneel" Andersson
WinFakt will however not be attending GameGune 2012 this weekend in Bilbao, Spain and with Karlsson signed up with a mixteam for FireCore 4, it is not known what events the team plans on attending in the future.
