Press release 04.06.21
Today we are happy to announce the signing of Asger «AcilioN» Larsen, a prominant Danish IGL. He will be with us all the way through 2022. Asger has already began working with the team, and will have his debut next week.
Asger is looking forward to play with his new teammates:
– I’m super excited to have joined Apeks. In my quest to find a new team I was looking for something where the club would be involved a lot in the progress of getting to the top. I think we have a really interesting lineup with a good mix of everything – Now it’s just up to us to work hard and get stuff done and then I have no doubt in my mind that everyone will see more of us.
Coach Pål «Polly» Kammen is happy with the new signing and explaining how the roles will rotate in the team.
– We have chosen to sign «AcilioN» because he is an experienced captain and in-game leader. This means that «dennis» will get to focus on the things he does best, and the roles in the team will be much more natural. This means every player will get to play positions and roles they are comfortable with and perform the best in. Long term this will be a very valuable signing for us and push us in the right direction.
Following this signing Rasmus «kreaz» Johansson will be released from the club when his contract ends in late June. The reason kreaz is removed is simply to make the roles add up.
– In order for us to bring in an experienced IGL we naturally have to let go of a player aswell, and this time that is «kreaz». This move has been in the works for quite some time, and «kreaz» has been nothing but professional during a difficult time knowing a change is happening aswell as «FREDDyFROGs» injury. I sincerly hope he finds a new team quickly which is a good fit and lets him play to his full potential, says coach Kammen.
We wish you all the best in the future, Rasmus! Thanks a lot for your time in our club.
