Kristian “k0nfig” Wienecke steps down from North’s line-up after three straight events with below-average ratings.
Markus “Kjaerbye” Kjærbye will reunite with Mathias “MSL”Lauridsen after playing under the North leader while the team still represented dignitas, whom he left in May 2016 to join Astralis as part of a deal that saw René “cajunb” Borg move in the opposite direction.
This is North’s second roster change in the post-Major period, after Daniel “mertz” Mertz was promoted from the academy roster to replace cajunb, who sits on the bench together with k0nfig.
North will play their first match with the new roster in the European closed qualifier for IEM Katowice, which takes place this weekend. They are also confirmed for cs_summit 2, which will run from February 8-11.
With Kjaerbye’s addition, North now have:
Mathias “MSL” Lauridsen
Philip “aizy” Aistrup
Valdemar “valde” Bjørn Vangså
Daniel “mertz” Mertz
Markus “Kjaerbye” Kjærbye
Alexander “ave” Holdt (coach)
