The norvegian based organization, Apeks has announced the revamp of their Counter-Strike:Global Offensive roster.
In a series of reveals, the management behind the organization announced the addition of three figures to join the two players that were still in the team.
The announcement were made starting 7'th of January 2022 starting with the addition of a Nordic player, former FaZe Clan, Dignitas, LA Renegades member and a familiar figure for the Apeks ranks, Joakim 'jkaem' Myrbostad, whom before this move was innactive within the EXTREMUM roster.
The official announcement of his addition was made by the Head of Esports Anders 'aNdz' Kjaer whom said:
"We obviously had a challenging situation a year ago, but we discussed it together and felt that we all could move forward from that. Nothing has changed in our thoughts of jkaem as a player.
There was a reason that we signed him then, and there is a reason we are signing him again now.
I could not be more excited to bring him back and show everyone what we can do together.
The goals for 2022 are set both for the CS:GO main team and the club as a whole. We are reaching high and are highly motivated to get started.
Jkaem will do what he does best, entryfrag and be a playmaker. He is the oldest and most experienced in the team, but still has a talent for the game. He has a wild x-factor and we know he will step up at the right moment."
At the same time the player, jkaem said:
"The decision to go back to Apeks has a number of reasons. First of all, it's a very good organization, that has good values and wants to become the best. Second and most importantly the fact that they wanted me back, and to put the past behind us, and look forward, made it clear for me that this is a good place to go!
My thoughts on going back have been a mixed bag of feelings. I wasn't sure if this could or would ever happen, but I am very glad that it did. So now I am pretty stoked about the upcoming year!
I am here to stay, to grind, to do everything I can to get Apeks as high as possible!"
