Face, khrystal to SK Gaming

SK GAMING -- After a long period of contract negotiations, SK is allowed to use two H2K players at Chengdu.

Johan 'face' Klasson and Frej 'kHRYSTAL' Sjöström, who had long been suspected to be leaving H2k for a bigger and better sponsorship at SK-Gaming, are about to finalize the deal for the two players to be leaving the H2K organization in this Extreme Masters season, but continuing to play for H2K at WCG 2009.

Currently, there positions are merely stand-ins for Extreme Masters, but SK hopes to sign the players officially later this month.

Face is well known in the Swedish Counter-Strike team for his dominant performances in numerous teams – upsetting numerous top teams during his time period on lemondogs (now H2K) and Begrip – but was never able to break through to the top.

He played for NiP during their rougher years, and MYM.no before the team was disbanded after GeT_RiGhT's move to SK.swe last year.

Frej “kHRYSTAL' Sjostrom is less well known, playing for few top Swedish teams however, as recent events have shown, he has great aim and at the young age of 19, could very well be the next f0rest or zet in the coming years.



SK Gaming’s BDS had this to say:

"I am very happy to finally see this deal. Over the last couple of weeks the legal department of SK has been negotiating with the lawyers of H2K and we have come up with an agreement that satisfies all parties.

face and khrystal are pure talents and fit perfectly into the formation with allen, robban and walle. I have really big hopes for this lineup, and with the right dedication and motivation they will go very far.

ESL Chengdu is coming up shortly and will be a good first event for the players to get to know each other and see how fast they can progress as a new team."

Johan 'face' Klasson told SK-gaming:

"I really think the new team will work really well to be honest. We have a good mix of players. Allen, Walle and Robban are very routined players and I think it will be great to mix that up with a little bit of different playstyle from me and khrystal. And now I think the team will have a motivation for 110% again!"

Frej “kHRYSTAL' Sjostrom stated that:

"This team has everything needed to succeed, sounds cliché but we have routine, high indivdual skill, hunger and something very important... calmness."

SK-Gaming's Roster for EM Chengdu:

Jimmy "allen" Allén
