Norwegian Counter-Strike player Jørgen “cromen” Robertsen is in discussion with Swole Patrol players to compete in ESL Pro League North America next season, according to multiple sources. Cromen is currently a free agent who played with FaZe Clan and Heroic in 2018 as a stand-in.
The Swole Patrol roster has experienced significant turnover since last November and will likely feature three new players. AWPer Austin “Cooper-“ Abadir left the team to join eUnited last November, who also have a spot in ESL Pro League. His brother Ryan “freakazoid” Abadir is expected to leave the roster and join Ghost, a move first reported by VPEsports. Jordan “Zellsis” Montemurro has joined Cloud9 on a trial basis while in-game leader Maikil “Golden” Kunda Selim recovers from health complications.
Two players that have already filled the gaps in Swole Patrol are Victor “food” Wong and Anthony “vanity” Malaspina, who were added on New Year’s Day. Cromen has scrimmaged multiple times with the team in recent weeks, although he has not moved to North America yet. It is unclear at this time if the team has reached an agreement with an organization to represent for Season 9 of ESL Pro League. Season 9 does not start until mid-April, giving them plenty of time to sort out their roster.
