Copenhagen Wolves revived their Counter-Strike division on January 1, 2024. Along with announcing the team’s return, Copenhagen Wolves unveiled a new European lineup, fielding non-Danish players for the first time in the team’s history.

Featuring Hubert “szejn” Światły, Leo “Svedjehed” Svedjehed, Sebastian “Basso” Aagaard, Nicolaj “mupzG” Djurhus, and in-game leader Victor “vigg0” Bisgaard, the Copenhagen Wolves formed a new English-speaking roster that will fight under one of the most recognisable names from the earlier days of Counter-Strike.

Szejn is the most notable name on the new roster, having made a name for himself by winning four WePlay Academy League titles with MOUZ NXT in 2021–22. Since then, the 21-year-old has served as a stand-in at Illuminar and was most recently seen competing with Project G.

He is surrounded by players from various backgrounds, including a Danish trio of mupzG, vigg0, basso, and ex-AGO and EYEBALLERS rifler Svedjehed.
Copenhagen’s revival started on December 20, when 23-year-old American entrepreneur Jared “Outback” Habib acquired the organisation. Along with a new owner came a different direction for assembling the roster, turning away from the Danish heritage.

Since Copenhagen Wolves’ inception in 2009, the team has fielded only Danish players. Some of the most notable ex-members include Counter-Strike superstars Peter “dupreeh” Rasmussen, Casped “cadiaN” Møller, Finn “karrigan” Andersen, and Nicolai “device” Reedtz.

While the new signings don’t carry as much prestige as the Copenhagen Wolves’ former members, the new international lineup holds some potential.

Vigg0 joins the Copenhagen Wolves after successful stints with Astralis Talent and Sashi Esports, while Basso made a name for himself during his stay at the Copenhagen Flames in 2019 and 2020. They will link up with MupzG, who found himself under the spotlight in September 2023 when he helped Victory Zigzag win Nordic Masters Fall 2023 and qualify for BLAST Premier: Fall European Showdown 2023.

Unfortunately, the team never made it to the $67,000 tournament after Victory Zigzag got disqualified for their members being banned. Despite never winning a big event, MupzG is a highly experienced player, having been involved in the Counter-Strike scene since 2014.

The Copenhagen Flames have no official games on the schedule and have yet to announce a head coach.
