The Danish rifler, Asger 'AcillioN' Larsen has signed with Apeks, the announcement was made on the official webpage of the team.
The player was innactive within the Copenhagen Flames roster and will replace Rasmus 'kreaz' Johansson in the active line-up.
The official statemen by team coach, Pal 'Polly' Kammen say:
"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."
At the same time the new member of the team and new In Game Leader, AcillioN had this to add:
"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."
