Jesper “JW” Wecksell, former Fnatic member, sat down with HLTV to share the highlights of his career and talk about the Swedish CS:GO scene. JW’s intention now is to create a project with all-Swedes roster. The plan was in his mind ever since Fnatic went international in the past year.
Wecksell remembers the years spent with another talent from his team — Robin “flusha” Ronnquist. He says that after Fnatic signed Maikil “Golden” Selim, flusha had to leave the role of an IGL which eventually led to numerous problems.
"We weren't always on the same page. Sometimes flusha saw the game one way and Golden saw it another way, or sometimes they saw it the same way but couldn't find a connection and were working around each other," JW notes.
Now as Jesper is no longer a Fnatic member since October 2021, he can look around, and the first thing that came to his mind was a brand-new all-Swedish roster. He wants to have a change of pace for his career, as he's been a part of Fnatic family for all these years.
"I built teams for fnatic for such a long time, but I always built it for fnatic, and so I started to think that maybe it's time to start my own organization or my own business in Sweden. The first thing that hit me was that I wanted to prove to everyone, and most importantly to myself, that what they've seen from me is not what they should expect from me because it's not what I expect from myself”, he adds on.
At the end, Jesper opens up on how hungry he is to prove himself to the world, even though there hasn’t been a proper ground for realization so far. At the end of the day, it is him and flusha, trying to figure out who will fit the project of Swedish CS:GO roster. For now, the candidates are Svedjehed (Lilmix) and Sapec (Young Ninjas).
Currently, the start of the project is envisioned in Eliteserien:
