Sources: MAD Lions set to replace Hunden with AcilioN

HUNDEN had been the in-game leader of the Mad Lions lineup since January 2019 when he joined the Tricked Esports organization along with Frederik "acoR" Gyldstrand. The team would later add Rasmus "Sjuush" Beck, Lucas "Bubzkji" Andersen, and Fredrik "roeJ" Jørgensen. In December, the five players made the switch to Mad Lions and will play in Season 1 of the new FLASHPOINT league.

AcilioN was originally expected to join the unannounced c0ntact Gaming roster, but talks between the two parties stalled. He was benched from the Copenhagen Flames roster late last month in anticipation of his transfer and is now expected to head to play with Mad Lions.

Under the leadership of HUNDEN, Mad Lions reached the semi-finals of three international tournaments. The first was DreamHack Open Sevilla 2019, followed by DreamHack Open Leipzig 2020, and ICE Challenge 2020. They will begin play in the FLASHPOINT league starting in just over a week, where they will compete for a $1,000,000 USD prize pool.
