Be careful: The new Copenhagen Flames CS:GO roster is showing signs of successNovember 21, 2022
Copenhagen Flames : After making the playoffs at the PGL Antwerp Major in May under the leadership of CS:GO player Rasmus “HooXi” Nielsen, the squad disbanded. When compared to other Danish teams like Astralis and Heroic, Copenhagen Flames‘ limited finances forced them to start from scratch and recruit players from lower divisions.
Following a sluggish start to the second half of the competitive season (during which they failed to even make Europe’s RMR for the IEM Rio Major), the Copenhagen Flames are starting to rediscover their feet. Only a select few teams have ever won two CS:GO competitions in as little as a week, but that’s exactly what the new lineup captained by Thomas “birdfromsky” Due Frederiksen did last week.
The Copenhagen Flames defeated ex-Team Finest in the finals of CCT Central Europe No. 3 on November 18 and then defeated K23 in the finals of the sixth season of the European Development Championship. They earned $42,000 in prize money from the two smaller online competitions and a guaranteed spot at a training camp in Malta.

In 2023, Copenhagen Flames might shock some larger teams and compete for a seat in the BLAST Paris Major if they are able to hold on to birdfromsky, Iulian “regali” Harjău, Rasmus “raalz” Steensborg, Thomas “TMB” Bundsbaek, and Johannes “b0RUP” Borup.
As the year comes to a close, it’s clear that these players, who suffered through months of poor performance when the project was built during the summer player break, have what it takes to challenge for the top spots in CS:GO in the next year, 2023.
