Epsilon can today announce that William “Draken” Sundin will be leaving our ranks to join NIP.
Draken has been part of Epsilon for almost a year and his rise to the top of the CSGO scene has been astonishing. He is one of the revelation of 2016 and we, as Epsilon staff, are more than happy to see where he is standing now.
The story began several months ago when we activated our CSGO scouting service to pick up a team of young and talented players. Draken was among them as an AWP player and this was how his adventure with Epsilon started. One year later, after winning both PGL Summer and WCA, the last page of Draken story with Epsilon has been written. A new one will start for both him, with NIP, and us.
Draken has been a terrific ambassador for Epsilon, his passion to win and his hard work explained his rise to the top. A long career is promised to him in CSGO and we will probably lift other trophies in the future.
Epsilon CEO, Greg Champagne, had this to say about Draken:
When our disco doplan made a move to Fnatic, everyone was worried, but we came out stronger. Today draken departs, but the next day we came out swinging. We will be looking to repeat. So many stories to tell around the man that only a year ago, was unknown to the pro-scene. William is a very genuine person, dedicated to CSGO (sometimes too much sure) to become one of the very top players in the world. I strongly believe its his personality which makes him so good, his strong will of wanting to win every single game.
We will miss him, but he desired the opportunity to try something new, and therefor we granted his request. Good luck William. #EpsiFamily
Draken had this to say about his time at Epsilon:
One year later, a new adventure begins for me with NIP, I want to thank Epsilon & Sponsors, especially Greg and Samy for seeing the potential in us when they picked us up. Epsilon believed in us from day one, and gave me the opportunity to grow as an individual player as well as a teamplayer. As a team we achieved amazing results, and although I will no longer be playing alongside them, they will remain a family and I have incredible memories with them.
Playing alongside Freddieb, rez, kalle, barbarr and chrille pushed me to be better, and can’t thank them enough.
We want to wish Draken the very best of luck in whatever the future brings and thank him for all his hard work and sucess during his time with #EpsiCSGO. He will play one last time under our colours tomorro during the Starladder playoff match against Fnatic.
We can rassure our fan, Epsilon CSGO history is not over, we will come back. After discovering talented players like DiscoDoplan, Draken , Flusha, JW, we are preparing the future…
