On Monday Iwku Gaming completed the signing of a new Counter­Strike:GO team. A signing that has been on the board for quite some time.– The new team fits our profile perfectly. We’re looking to find players that have yet to conquer the Nordic Counter­Strike scene and we hope this will lead to a long and successful partnership, says Tim Thelin founder of Iwku Gaming.

The new lineup consisting of four out of five players from the former American organization VwS Empire where the team’s captain, Victor ”relife” Strauss, along with Niklas ”plyfa” Runsvik, Anton ”awwe” Pålsson and Anand ”PyromaRnE” Olofsson has received reinforcements in the highly experienced Simon “st^” Thulin, last seen in Epiphany Bolt.

It was a short session for the players of VwS Empire which of whom are now ready to start a new chapter at home turf with a Swedish organization. The team managed, just last week, to qualify for the LAN finals of Pantamera E­sport 3.0, which will be held at DreamHack Winter in Jönköping later in November.

– Everyone in the team is very excited to have signed with Iwku Gaming, a Swedish organization with lots experience in e­Sports and I personally have been aware of them for over 10 years. We share common goals with Iwku to reach the heights of the 1.6 era and show what we as a team are capable of, says Victor ”relife” Strauss, Iwkus new team captain.

– We have decided on an agreement that hopefully paves the way for a long­term collaboration with strong growth potential. We have followed these players for a while now and have high hopes, says Iwku Gaming’s chairman Karl-Fredrik Eriksson.

Our team will immediately venture into action and take over in the Razer Rising Star League Europe where half of the games remain. In addition to the RSL Europe, the new team has several challenges in the form of qualifiers and online leagues.
