Leading into our 2022 season we wanted to take a moment to thank each of the players that helped us not only achieve a spot in the 2022 NLC 2nd Division and those that were there at the beginning of Nativz Gaming way back in May 2021 who are leaving us.
Of our Main LoL Team that qualified for the 2022 NLC 2nd Division it’s a bitter sweet situation with three of the team moving up to the 1st Division or equivalent outside of the NLC. First to announce his new team was Casper “CBoi” Bo Simonsen who has now joined Bifrost. Marcus “Baybror” Bay-Schmidt and Emil “xRoskilde” Christiansen have yet to announce their new teams. While we didn’t want him to leave, we’re really pleased for Kenneth “Mikmer” Østergaard who has taken up a Social Media Internship in Berlin with G2.
Our longest serving player in our short history was Jonas “PederseNN” Pedersen, the last of our inaugural Main LoL Team who is also yet to announce his new team. PederseNN’s early achievements for Nativz were recognised by his peers from the TESD Summer Split where he picked up the MVP for his Support role. He was pivotal in our successful qualification for the upcoming 2022 NLC securing our place in Division 2 with a victory over his former team Dusty.
From our Academy Team we say goodbye to Jonatan “Siiger” Ejstrud, one of our inaugural 2021 Spring Split Academy Team members and winners of the Leagues GG Winter Showdown. The talented Mid Laner joined in May 2021 and has consistently performed well for the team in his time with Nativz. Another member of the Leagues GG Winter Showdown DSDK winning team Niklas “Winter” Hanse also departs.
We'd like to take this moment to thank each of the players for their commitment to Nativz in the time they have been with us as we wish them all the best as they move on to new opportunities.
