Kimmo “BASiC” Fagerholm, stated earlier in the week that Power Gaming was officially revamping their roster for 2011, hopefully in an attempt to bring them back towards international prominence. This new roster did not involve Fagerholm and he was cut in order to make space, soon after that Niko “naSu” Kovanen annouced that he has quit Counter Strike, in order to focus on “personal commitments”.
After the recent shake up however, Power Gaming has annouced that they have changed their roster, and have added Tomi “Lurppis” Kovanen and Juuso “contE” Sajakoski. The added experience from Kovanen’s time spent at American organization Team Evil Geniuses, could possibly be very beneficial to the Finnish team after a rather dismal performance at World E Sport Masters, where they placed 7-8 overall.
I didn’t originally plan on playing CS anymore post-EG but after talking to the guys I decided to team up with them once again, this time under Power Gaming. I believe we will have a lot of fun competing together this year! We will obviously still do our best to practice hard and do well at tournaments, as Finland is definitely due some top placings again in CS 1.6.
