Danish esports organization Copenhagen Flames has moved Iulian "regali" Harjău to bench and signed Asger "farlig" Jensen to replace him.
"It should be obvious to all that regali possesses some unique qualities. As far as his raw skill and mechanical abilities are concerned, he already belongs to the absolute world elite. At the same time, we also have to recognize that in some ways the fit isn’t perfect for how we want to play and the direction of the team. And so we have made this change to improve the overall level of the squad. In addition, we believe that farlig is a perfect fit. He is first and foremost a fantastic guy and teammate, but in addition he is also an incredibly talented player who historically has performed at a very high level at our club. Since his last stay in Copenhagen Flames, farlig has gained even more experience, and we expect him to make an immediate impact," said Philip Karsbøl, Head of Esports at Copenhagen Flames.
20-year-old regali has been playing with Copenhagen Flames since August 2022. Earlier, he was with Fnatic Rising.
23-year-old farlig came to Copenhagen Flames from Astralis, where he was inactive since October last year after Nicolai "dev1ce" Reedtz returning. Three years ago, from 2018 to 2020, he played with Copenhagen Flames from where he went to GODSENT.
Copenhagen Flames are now:
- Thomas "birdfromsky" Due Frederiksen (in-game leader)
- Rasmus "raalz" Steensborg
- Thomas "TMB" Bundsbæk
- Johannes "b0RUP" Borup
- Asger "farlig" Jensen
- Benjamin "cube" Stabell (coach)
