Esports: ATK recruit Scandinavian stars

Scandinavian duo Jonathan "b0denmaster" Bodenmalm and Erik "truth" Hansen Dyrnes will travel to Monterrey, Mexico to play for the South American organization ATK.

These new additions come as a bit of a surprise as "b0denmaster" and "truth", with the European pair joining the team's roster ahead of the start of ESL Challenger League Season 40.

b0denmaster and truth join the team as replacements for Marshall "Minus" Sedowicz and Wiljahne "mango" Smith, with Minus departing the team in December to join Damian "daps" Steele and mango taking a leave to mentally reset.

ATK's coach Daniel "sprayxd" Kogan explained that the team had tried multiple North American players last year prior to adding Minus, none of whom were deemed to be suitable for what the team was trying to accomplish.

ATK had to send its search elsewhere and that search led them to Europe for talent, which in turn led them to b0denmaster and truth.

ATK look to European talent

ATK has struggled to surpass other sub-top North American squads during their time in the region, with many of their tournament runs being cut short in 5-8th place or earlier.

Heading into 2022, the team hopes that the addition of European talent will help them to overcome that hurdle and begin competing for titles, as well as put on a more competitive face in ESL Challenger League.

ATK roster: Gareth "MisteM" Ries, Rhys "Fadey" Armstrong, Ian "motm," Hardy, Jonathan "b0denmaster" Bodenmalm, Erik "truth" Hansen Dyrnes; Daniel "sprayxd" Kogan (coach).
