Nordavind acquire Placebo roster with Data

Nordavind has acquired the former Placebo roster composed of Godsmilla and Al Dente alongside their new third Data.

During the Rival Series, Placebo surprised everyone as they finished 5-2, finding losses only to Servette and Method. With a three-way tie for first place at 5-2, Placebo unfortunately lost out in game win percentage. The team just barely missed out on a chance at RLCS by finishing at third place with a spot in the upcoming season's Rival Series.

Data competed under Hashtag United last season during the Rival Series Play-in. The team made quite the run in the lower bracket, making it all the way to the qualifying match, which ultimately saw them being knocked out by Zebra. The team did not have much luck in the Gfinity Elite Series either where they finished 7-8th with a record of 1-3.

Nordavind is also a part of the Gfinity Elite Series. Last season, they finished in last place while boasting an all-Norwegian roster. This time around they have opted to pick up a stronger roster as they hope to make it to the playoffs.
