The last team of jkaem was 100 Thieves, who decided to leave the competetive CS:GO scene. The player is now in Los Angeles and will soon join the new squad on a boot camp in Oslo.
According to jkaem's agent Asger Kwalvik, the decisive factor in favor of Apeks was the player's desire to return home and develop the local Counter-Strike. Organizations did not disclose the transfer amount, but the agent noted that this is a record deal in the history of the Norwegian CS:GO.
Myrbustad's debut in the new team is expected at Elisa Invitational Fall 2020 tournament, which will take place from October 26 to 28.
Current composition of Apeks:
Ole "Marcelious" Christian Langan
Sander "Grusarn" Nordeide Ivershen
Dennis "dennis" Edman
Martin "Nasty" Garwick (trial period)
Joakim "jkaem" Mirbustad
Paul "Polly" Kammen (coach)
Christian "akez" Kornbakk (reserve)
Eric "truth" Hansen Dirnes (reserve)
