The dawn of a new era: But will this roster live up to the high expectations of the last one?

Copenhagen Flames has signed a new CS: GO roster, the org announced today. The new roster features several up and coming talent including TMB, Cube and more. The roster also has a decent bit of experience with players such as RAALZ and bORUP. 

Terming the new roster Flames 3.0, the organization hopes to build this roster into a world-class challenger just like they’ve done several times before. The Copenhagen Flames org has sold more than 15 players in the past two years as it looks to find sustainability in the CS: GO ecosystem. 

With this group of players we made sure that they were all onboard with this approach and were motivated to work in this way. Going forward our CS:GO division will add staff to areas like performance, data, health, science, and tech. With strategic partnerships our aim is to be among the world leaders in these areas and to create a program and environment where players will improve day in and day out regardless of their tasks and role. 

Their goal with the new lineup is to retain these players for even longer periods of time so that they can take advantage of existing resources and setup. As an organization famous for spotting upcoming talent, the Copenhagen signing will be a shot in the arm for these players.

The roster itself is a mix of young and upcoming talent with experienced players. TMB and bORUP have played together on MAD Lions before while regali has been a star on the Fnatic roster CS: GO roster. Birdfromsky and raalz have leadership experience and will join the roster as the two-shot callers with raalz taking the role of a secondary shotcaller.

The CS: GO ecosystem can often be extremely taxing for esports organizations. With high salaries and the constant tussle with other orgs, it is often difficult to bring together a winning lineup. Very few orgs are actually able to scout good talent and put together a roster capable of challenging the very best. Copenhagen Flames is one of these orgs and has been involved in the scene for a very long time.
