Oslo, Norway, February 22nd 2023 -- FACT would like to announce changes to our competitive CS:GO team roster. After careful consideration and evaluation, we have decided to move Nils "NmS" D'Alauzier and Mats "adpt" Svartangen to our inactive roster.
We would like to thank "NmS" and "adpt" for their contributions to the team and wish them the best in their future endeavors. It's important to note that both "NmS" and "adpt" are still contracted to FACT, and we will continue to work with them in other ways such as content creation and community engagement.
Moving forward, we are excited to welcome two new players to the team, Kiyoshi and Torbex.
Thomas Stensrud "Kiyoshi" Larsen brings a wealth of experience and expertise to the team, having competed at the highest levels of Norwegian Counter-Strike. We believe that his strategic mind and exceptional skill will make a significant impact on the team's overall performance.
Torbjørn "TorbeX" Kvalnes, a rising star in the CS:GO scene, is known for his exceptional aim and teamwork. We are thrilled to have him join our team and believe that he will be an excellent addition to our roster.
We spoke to the team's IGL, Daniel "ryL" Vinichenko, who expressed his enthusiasm about the changes: "I’ve missed playing with Kiyoshi for a while. He and I played together under the leadership of Arnfinn “theNe” Eriksen a couple of months ago, and we formed a bond as teammates, knowing we would reunite one day. Kiyoshi is a beast on the server and a superb guy that I’m happy to know. He solves our AWPing mystery in the absence of Nils. I actually considered picking up the AWP for a while, before Kiyoshi and I struck up talks.
TorbeX, from what I know has actually played as a stand-in for FACT previously, and is a good friend of Kiyoshi, who I’ve heard a lot of good things about from various people, Kiyoshi included. I’m really excited to get going, and I’m certain these changes warrant an undefeated season!"
Adpt and Nils are phenomenal, and it's sad to no longer play with them. We are all still on good terms, Vinichenko added.
FACT CEO, Simen Kjellevold Nygård, also shared his thoughts on the changes: "We believe that Kiyoshi and Torbex will be excellent additions to our team. We are confident in their abilities and look forward to seeing them compete at the highest levels of CS:GO."
We would like to thank our fans for their continued support and look forward to bringing you more exciting news and updates about our CS:GO team in the future.
