BLEED have announced the signing of Joakim "⁠jkaem⁠" Myrbostad and Tim "⁠nawwk⁠" Jonasson from Apeks.

The duo was quick to find a new home after Apeks recently announced their plans for a complete roster rebuild. The decision came after a thorough evaluation of the team’s performance and a commitment to long-term success according to the organization.

VLDN and cerq moved to the bench

This move sees Vladan "⁠VLDN⁠" Radević moved to the bench after only two months since he replaced Laurențiu "⁠lauNX⁠" Țârlea. And Tsvetelin "⁠CeRq⁠" Dimitrov who’s been with the team since its initiation back in December of last year also finds himself benched by the organization.

According to their Head Coach Aleksandar "kassad" Trifunović, it wasn't an easy decision at all as he stated on X.

"Both "cerq" and "vldn" helped a lot in building the foundation of the team, so this decision wasn't easy at all. But as a coach, sometimes you need to make those calls and look a few steps ahead. - Kassad on X

BLEED has showcased a varied performance record so far, securing a commendable second-place finish at RES European Series 1 and claiming the top spot at the Thunderpick World Championship 2024: European Series 1.

This also marks the reunion of “nawwk” with Hampus "hampus" Poser after their tenure with NIP back in 2020 which saw the AWPer getting benched following the shocking signing of Nicolai "dev1ce" Reedtz.

The signed duo were Apeks’ best performers who managed to reach the Grand Final of Elisa Masters Espoo 2023, with “nawwk” sitting on the stats leaderboard and clinching the MVP medal.

Their new players will make their first LAN appearance at the MESA Nomadic Masters Spring later this month, marking a great start to a roster that is already becoming strong.

BLEED's final roster is the following:

  • Joakim "⁠jkaem⁠" Myrbostad
  • Tim "⁠nawwk⁠" Jonasson
  • Hampus "⁠hampus⁠" Poser
  • Cai "⁠CYPHER⁠" Watson
  • Josef "⁠faveN⁠" Baumann
