Epsilon recently suffered a player loss as William "draken" Sundin left to join NiP Gaming. His spot has been filled by a wide variety of players in online tournaments, but a new face will be playing at this week's Copenhagen Games, team member Freddy "freddieb" Buö reveals.
The replacement is none other than Simon "atter" Atterstam. The 23-year-old has previously played for the Swedish national team as well as Torpedo, qwerty and most recently as a stand-in for Renegades. He played with the Australian team at DreamHack Masters Las Vegas, as well as in online matches.

Atterstam's stay in Epsilon isn't necessarily temporary. When Fragbite reaches out to freddieb, he says Copenhagen Games is a trial tournament for the stand-in, meaning the relationship might go further if all goes well in the Danish capital.
A great amount of teams have signed up for the 2017 edition of Copenhagen Games. Epsilon is one of eight who have been handed a direct invite to the main tournament, together with teams like Fnatic Academy, LDLC, NRG and BIG.
