Former Lions Counter Strike 1.6 pair, Bjorn ‘threat’ Pers and Frej “kHRYSTAL” Sjostorm have entered the competitive CS:GO scene with Team Acer. The Germany based organisation had already dropped hints of moving to GO, in January.

Both the 1.6 stalwarts have also been a part of some big organisation, threat was a part of the fnatic in the first half of 2010, whereas Khrystal was in SK Gaming.

kHRYSTAL has previously tried his hand at competitive CS:GO with teams such as Begrip and Reason. He told Acer, “I first of all want to say that this is AMAZING! The guys and I have been waiting for this moment for a long time, it’s a huge relief to finally go official. By joining Team Acer it feels like we really can focus on our game instead of things surrounding it. It’s soon time for us to show the community what we really can do, but we got a few things yet to fix. Luckily we’ve got a month until our first offline appearance, so we should be all set by then.”
