Norwegian esports organization Nordavind has completed its new Counter-Strike: Global Offensive roster.

Nordavind adds two players that have floated from team to team over the past several months in Niels “NaToSaphiX” Sillassen and Kevin HS Tarn. The organization made the announcement on its official Twitter account.

Nordavind announced new CSGO roster

The announcement comes days after the release of Håkon hallzerk Fjærli, who was previously rumored to be joining Dignitas alongside four members of the legendary 2014 Ninjas in Pyjamas roster. Though Dignitas has not yet confirmed this, a number of signs are pointing to this being the case.

Most of the members of the new Nordavind lineup are holdovers from the previous roster. As of this writing, Nordavind’s roster is as follows:

  • Niels “NaToSaphiX” Sillassen
  • Kevin HS Tarn
  • Ruben RUBINO Villarroel
  • Jesper tenzki Plougmann Mikalski
  • Jørgen “cromen” Robertsen

While Nordavind currently finds itself buried in a deep European Counter-Strike: Global Offensive scene, the organization’s addition of NaToSaphiX gives it some serious firepower. The player most recently impressed while standing in for mousesports at CS Summit 5, producing some highlight plays and putting himself back on the CSGO free agent radar.

HS was placed on the inactive list for GamerLegion back in October and has been looking for a new team ever since.

Nordavind will participate in MDL Season 33, which starts on January 13. The team is also expected to compete in the qualifiers for a number of larger tournaments.
