Swedish in-game leader Fredrik “freddieb” Buö has agreed in principle to join Godsent in the coming weeks, according to multiple sources close to the player and team. Freddieb must play the Gfinity Elite Series Finals with Epsilon, which ends Sept. 2, before any transfer would be possible.
This move follows multiple recent changes in Godsent, including the trade of Jonas “Lekr0” Olofsson for Dennis “dennis” Edman from Fnatic. Markus “pronax” Wallsten also stepped down from the active roster, with Jacob “pyth” Mourujärvi playing as a substitute for ESL Pro League matches.
Pronax is the most decorated in-game leader in Counter-Strike Global Offensive history, having won three Majors. His time on Godsent has left much to be desired, though, as his team often failed to qualify for large events and performed poorly in the events it did attend. After stumbling in the PGL Krakow Major Qualifier, it is clear the team was forced to make serious changes.
Freddieb has had many of his talented teammates plucked by larger orgs throughout his time on Epsilon. Joakim “disco doplan” Gidetun joined Fnatic late last year, and Ninjas in Pyjamas signed William “draken” Sundin and Fredrik “REZ” Sterner at different points during the year. On Godsent, he would reunite with disco doplan, and the duo would have much more firepower this time around in Dennis and Simon “twist” Eliasson.
Godsent and RFRSH Entertainment, which represents Godsent, did not initially respond to requests for comment.
