The Swedish organization has big problem. They are on the brink of losing their Counter-Strike division. The Swedish team's contracts with Lions run until the end of the month, and it is believed the players are not interested in an extension after reportedly becoming unhappy with the organisation's lack of support. What's more, MYM who have been without a CS squad for a month, is very interested in Lions players. It would be next big change in CS world...
After a convincing first-place finish at ASUS Summer, the team has only captured silverware again just once, at the IOL 3 Finals, placing third at MSI Beat It, DSRack and DreamHack Winter and second at the EPS Nordic III finals. The team finished 5th-6th at the IEM5 European Championship and did not go beyond the group stage at the IEM5 World Championship.
Lions have had the team since August 2010. It will be great loss to the organisation, because They were among the favorites on Xperia PLAY tournament (Copenhagen Games 2011).
Lions CS team: Niklas "niko" Johansson, Frej "kHRYSTAL" Sjöström, Emil "FYRR73" Karlsson, Björn "threat" Pers and Rasmus "Gux" Ståhl.
