It is noteworthy that shortly after the official announcement of Elias "Jamppi" Olkkonen published a farewell message on Twitter, in which he hoped that soon he will be able to share good news.
Elias "Jamppi" Olkkonen has represented the SJ since April 2018. Together with the Finnish team, he won many regional tournaments and earned a reputation as one of the most promising young snipers. The signing of the 18-year-old player considered several large organizations, the last of which, according to rumors, was OG, but the obstacle to the contract was the VAC-ban on one of his accounts, which was received at the age of 13 years.
The current composition of the SJ:
Tony "arvid" Niemel
Tuomas "SADDYX" Lowhimaa
Jesse "KHRN" Grundell
Mikko "xartE" Velimaa
Tony "STOVVE" Lucconen
