GODSENT recently saw the departure of Dennis “dennis” Edman, followed shortly by Andreas “znajder” Lindberg, leaving the Swedish roster down to just three. Earlier today it emerged that youngsters Ludvig “Brollan” Brolin and Hampus “hampus” Poser.
The departure of the latter two comes as a result of lackluster performance over the recent past, with the prior standing in for Astralis at the BLAST Pro Series to great effect.
A caveat that seems to be restricting GODSENT in ways is the fact that due to his young age, Brollan will not be permitted to participate at ESL-sanctioned events, requiring either a stand-in for the roster during them, or simply skip them entirely.
Kasper Hvidt, Director of Sports at RFRSH Entertainment expressed:
We have been working with different team and player profiles for a while, both from a skill and performance perspective for the individual players with the general psychological match between profiles on a team. One result of this work is the new roster at GODSENT.
We wanted to revitalize the team and to create a younger, hungry and eager profile. With twist, disco doplan, freddieb on the team and by adding hampus and Brollan, we’ve set together an extremely skilled team which I am confident will be able to produce results. When setting together a new team, you’ll most often have a period of fluctuating results, but on mid and long term, this roster will take GODSENT back to a position as a serious and strong contender.
The older of the two newcomers, 19-year-old hampus, had a performance with GODSENT prior to joining full time at the WESG European Regional Final, managing to make a solid run alongside his new teammates, all the way to the grand final, where they subsequently conceded a best-of-3 series to Team Ukraine, snagging second place and a spot at the LAN finals of the $1,500,000 prize pool main event.
The very same European Regional Final saw 15-year-old Brollan perform in place of Freddy “KRiMZ” Johansson, except the second Swedish competitors were only able to land quarter-finals finish after a loss to Team Ukraine meant 3-4th place.
