H2K have gone ahead and filled out their CS 1.6 roster with two former SK members, being Abdisamad “SpawN” Mohamed and Jim “Zneel” Andersson. The team had recently suffered a setback, as Johan “face” Klasson and Frej “kHRYSTAL” Sjöström set off to join SK Gaming.
“It’s great that there are players outside the organization that wanted to help us since the department of two good players due to individual success instead of team success,” read H2K COO, Rudy van der Reest’s statement on their website.
Mohamed is stated as only being a stand-in for the WCG event, but it’s unclear right now whether that could turn into something with a longer term, or whether H2K will still be searching for a permanent 5th.
“I have known the H2K guys for a while and played with them before, I know they are very talented and great guys, I have also heard great things about zneel and I am happy to be a stand in for the WCG event.” echoed Mohamed’s statement for H2K. “This will be interesting and I am really looking forward to it.”
The team will be looking ahead to the end of November, when the team embarks to China for the WCG Grand Finals in Chengdu.
