H2k has made roster changes after two subpar finishes.
H2K has announced today that they will make a change in hopes for better results in the coming months.
This comes right after the team had fell out of the round of sixteen in WCG Grand Finals and lost in the quarter finals of DreamHack Winter.
They decided to release Björn 'THREAT' Pers, who – while being acknowledged by the team as both a good team mate and a good friend – has been released for former SK-Gaming member, Mattias 'Snajdan' Andersen.
Mattias 'Snajdan' Andersen had played for SK-Gamings old Swedish lineup, with now H2k member Abdisamad 'SpawN' Mohamed before being released after the organization decided to raid the NiP roster, which had been crippled by potti's retirement, zet's move to coL and heaton's decision to become a GM for the CGS.
Team captain Jim 'zneel' Andersson told H2k-gaming.eu that “we're all sad that THREAT is leaving us. I guess we weren't all satisfied with the way we played, and we needed some new style in our game – and we all felt very comfortable with letting Snajdan take THREATs place as an IGL. Three of us have played with him before so we all know that his capacity as a player and IGL is at a high level. We're all looking forward to play with this new team and we feel very confident about competing with all the other top-teams.”
New ingame leader Mattias 'Snajdan' Andersen echoed the sentiment by stating that "I feel very happy to be given the chance to join up with H2k-Gaming. Basically it's a comeback for me, and I'm really motivated and hungry to play again. I've played with all the players before in different type of situations, everybody except FYRR73, and from what I've seen they're all really good guys and I'm sure we'll get along well together. It's also extra fun to play with my old teammate from SK, SpawN, again. Last but not least, it will be really fun to compete in the highest level again, and I'm sure we'll go far with this team, with the given time to practice with each other."H2k Roster:
