Norweigan Counter-Strike player Joakim “jkaem” Myrbostad is set to reunite with his former 100 Thieves teammates, according to multiple sources close to the situation. Despite joining the Apeks organization in late October, he has joined Aaron “AZR” Ward, Jay “Liazz” Tregillgas, and Sean “Gratisfaction” Kaiwai in their discussions with Extremum.
The Oceanic core and jkaem played together for about two years, with Gratisfaction and Liazz joining up with AZR and jkaem in late 2018 on Renegades. They were able to reach the playoffs of two consecutive Major tournaments in 2019 before making the transition to 100 Thieves. At this time AZR, Liazz, and Gratisfaction are still under contract with 100 Thieves but are inactive after the org announced its departure from CS:GO for a second time in October.
Extremum is led by business development manager Emir “sngz“ Udvincic and is being funded by private investors, according to multiple sources. Should they officially acquire the ex-100 Thieves players, they would only need one more player to round
