roeJ has played for the MAD Lions since December 2019, when the organization acquired the Tricked lineup. The team's major accomplishment was winning the first season in Flashpoint League during that time. HooXi joined the Danish roster at the end of last season and participated in Flashpoint 2 (5th-6th place).
After his transfer to the roster, roeJ confirmed on Twitter that the MAD Lions have plans to create a new international roster. According to eSports athlete, he has no plans to be a part of the new team.
irst of all I want to thank all my teammates/coaches throughout my journey in Tricked and later Mad Lions. Back in 2019 when I joined Tricked it was my first step and a dream come true to finally play real top tier and professional CSGO and I am forever grateful for the chance that was given to me by the original team back then with HUNDEN, Bubzkji, sjuush and acoR.
Throughout my time we had our ups and downs with the biggest achievements being our victory at V4 Future Festival in Budapest and our run at Flashpoint season 1 in LA. I've got great experiences and memories I will never forget.
With the start of 2021 we lost acoR as he wanted to pursue another team and we got in TMB. I felt like we were doing great in practice and I couldn't wait to see what we could do in official matches. But since our late start of the year because of roster changes, it sadly wasn't in the cards for us to get to play any official matches before ultimately sjuush and refrezh joining Heroic. I'm happy for them and I know they will do great in their new team. Though this change caused Mad Lions wanting to pursue an international lineup instead, which I'm not going to be part of and therefor I am now searching for new opportunities.
I am still hungry as ever to compete and I know I have a lot to contribute for a team who wants to achieve big things in CS. So feel free to contact me if you have questions / want to know more about me as a player. I am open for both Danish and International offers and you can contact me here on twitter or my email [email protected]
