Copenhagen Flames retain roster for 2022
Danish organization Copenhagen Flames has announced that it will start the next season with the same roster. The announcement comes amid rumors that the players intend to pursue their careers elsewhere.
According to the director of esport of Copenhagen Flames, Daniel Vorborg, in order to retain the roster, the club decided to change its development strategy and is now interested in a consistent team that will be able to perform at the highest level on the professional CS:GO scene.
After two months of talking and negotiating with several parties; we’ve found that the best available option for all of us is to stick together for 2022. Now I know, with all of the rumors, that some of you will think that is a solution we are unhappy with. But I can tell you that that is not the case. For Copenhagen Flames as a club; we stated with the signing of this roster that we were changing our strategy. We want to keep our best players for longer and cement our position towards the top of CS:GO. We’ve achieved much more, much faster than we could have ever imagined with this roster, and as such we’re extremely pleased to continue with the team.
A few days earlier, the negotiations on the transfer of all five players to Complexity were reportedly suspended, while the American organization was closest to the acquisition of the roster among all interested parties.
IEM Katowice 2022, which will take place from 15 to 27 February, will be the next tournament for Copenhagen Flames. 24 participants will compete for a total prize pool of $1 million.
Current Copenhagen Flames lineup:
Rasmus "HooXi" Nielsen
Nico "nicoodoz" Tamjidi
Fredrik "roeJ" Jørgensen
