Godsent announced Monday that Jacob “Pyth” Mourujärvi will stand in for Andreas “znajder” Lindberg at DreamHack Atlanta this weekend because of znajder’s vacation plans.

“Back in January, long before the major cycle was announced, the team had decided to go on vacation a week before the widely agreed player vacation, in order to return earlier and get ahead,” coach Graham “messioso” Pitt said in a statement. “Things change, and we have now accepted an invite to attend DreamHack Atlanta, but will not cause disruption to Andreas “znajder” Lindberg’s vacation, which was booked many months ago.”

Pyth was released from Ninjas in Pyjamas in May and has been a free agent since then. According to the announcement, Pyth has been part of Godsent’s boot camp before the tournament.

Godsent is attending DreamHack Atlanta after failing to qualify for the PGL Krakow Major and the DreamHack Malmo. The team has struggles significantly since a roster shuffle in February, when Jesper “JW” Wecksell and Robin “flusha” Ronnquist reunited with their former teammates on Fnatic. Pitt moved into his interim coach role in June.

DreamHack Atlanta begins Friday, with eight teams fighting it out for a $100,00 prize pool. Godsent was one of the six invited teams along with EnVyUs, HellRaisers, Heroic, NRG and Renegades, and they’ll be joined by Misfits and Binary Dragons.
