Rwa returns in Divine

October 11th, 2012 18:31

Former EYEBallers and SPEEDLINK star Anders "Rwa" Svensson has revived the Divine team in time for this weekend's THOR Open CS:GO qualifier.

The Swedish player was last seen replacing Emil "striker" Westerberg in Blank in late 2008, with Divine being the team in which he burst onto the scene almost a decade ago.

His return to the scene will just be for this qualifier, though, as the entire team is of the opinion that it will be impossible to play on an active basis once again.

"A permanent comeback will probably never happen," "BANDIT" told

"We live slightly different lives now, with regular jobs, children, houses and all that. There is simply not enough time!."

Thor Open, which is organised by Fragbite in association with CDON, will be played in Stockholm between December 8-9, with more than €15,000 up for grabs.

Divine will attend this weekend's qualifier with:

Sweden Anders "Rwa" Svensson
Sweden "BANDIT"
Sweden "chea"
Sweden "squee"
Sweden "koffe"

Below you can find a highlight taken from a 2003 online match in which Svensson shows why he was widely regarded as one of the best players in the Swedish scene during his prime.

You're probably still young when he was still active, or you're just new to the CS scene. There were only two players who could match his insane reflexes with the awp back in the days. cogu and KK.

You must be new to CS then! He got sick awp shots back in the day

2012-10-11 18:34
WOAH! Sweet!
2012-10-11 18:34
not really worth a news tbh
2012-10-11 18:36
Well Rwa was an online star back in the days (even element called him out) but later he was more LAN proven and played with some known teams. Also is that chea from Come As You Are (caYa)? If so, some oldschool comeback right here.
2012-10-12 00:05
one of the sickest player in the past
2012-10-11 18:37
w0w i'm speechless. living fkn legend
2012-10-11 18:37
Rwa was good back in days.

2012-10-11 18:38
same thought
2012-10-11 22:13
Rwa not worth news... Idk why people even consider this a 1.6 community they know nothing out of neo navi and sweden
2012-10-11 18:39
I do agree with what you said but "sweden?" like rwa is togolese..
2012-10-11 18:55
Never heard.
2012-10-11 18:40
Rwa is very famous sniper in sweden
2012-10-11 18:44

2012-10-11 18:52
hilarious. 'never heard' guy was an absolute demon in his day. all these '1.6 forever!!!' fanboys don't even know where 1.6 started. gl RWA

So you can only be a 1.6 fan, if you played the game since the BETA's?
2012-10-11 19:03
no, but this guys blame RWA just because he back in cs:go

That has nothing to do with anything I've said.
2012-10-11 20:29
i never said they can't be a 1.6 fan, i just find it hilarious that they want something to last 'forever' when they weren't even there for the start of it, don't know the oldschool players who made 1.6 huge and banter people like HeatoN for moving on.

You weren't there for the invention of oxygen, but I'm sure you would like it to last forever too.

I was talking about him saying "where 1.6 started"
2012-10-11 20:28
yes and 1.6 started in 2003, no way near beta

Well the cs 1.6 as a game started as cs 1.5 and 1.4 and 1.3 etc, so yes, the release of the update was 2003, but the actual start was like 1999-2000, and either way, that has nothing to do with the point i was making.

2012-10-11 20:47
good to see this legendary player back in the game, altough I doubt if he can get back to his old form.
2012-10-11 21:42
nice move
2012-10-11 22:11
"rwa who????" - the average 1.6 "fan" LOL
2012-10-11 22:24
Oldschool players coming back... CS:GO such a great game!
2012-10-11 22:29
I wonder if he still has the fastest awp in the world...
2012-10-11 23:04
How old is he?
2012-10-11 23:45
2012-10-12 02:18
for sure its nice to see this old star like RWA,and sad that all youngs dont know nothing about the strongest CS years,when teams realy played hard and strong tactics makes the game realy impressive! nowadays we have a gathering @ all... vivala oldschoolaaa 8)
2012-10-12 00:02
RWA was an absolute beast in his time and it dates back even before "Divine". He used to play in AWP since CS 1.3 times.
2012-10-12 02:20
What the fk? am i dreaming? Rwa is back?
2012-10-12 02:38
F*** YEAH !! Rwa !! So stunned when i read this. I doubt he can be as good in go as he was in his prime but nice to see these people still want to play
2012-10-12 06:49
2012-10-12 08:45
