PoPiFresH, hitscan player for the Copenhagen Flames in the first Contenders season of 2018, has chosen not to re-sign with the team and is now a free agent.

PoPiFresH joined the Flames when his team, Piece of Cake, signed with the organization prior to Contenders. His team went 3-2 in the group stage, enough for a place in playoffs, but was eliminated in the quarterfinals by the Angry Titans.

According to a follow-up tweet from PoPiFresH, he did not re-sign with the team at the end of his contract because of a disagreement between he and the organization. He is now looking for a team in Contenders or the Overwatch League.

Should PoPiFresH find a new Contenders team for the second season of Contenders 2018, he will have played for a different team in every iteration of Contenders. In Contenders Season Zero, he played for Team eSporters Cyberathletes before being eliminated in the group stage. He then played for the European mix under the Team Singularity name in Contenders Season One, finishing just short of playoff qualification there.

After a playoff finish in Contenders 2018 Season 1 Europe, the Copenhagen Flames retain a spot in Contenders Season 2. The team will now have to fill the role of hitscan specialist before the next season begins.

The Copenhagen Flames are now:

  • Nikolai "naGGa" Dereli (DPS)
  • Robin "Hayko" Stahmer (Flex)
  • Simon "Chubz" Vullo (Tank)
  • Alexis "MarineLorD" Eusebio (Support)
  • Arthur "dridro" Szanto (Support)
