On Thursday, December 28, Peter "dupreeh" Rasmussen officially joined Preasy Esports, replacing Nico "nicoodoz" Tamjidi. The news comes following the expiration of dupreeh's contract with Heroic, who he joined as a temporary stand-in for the rest of 2023.

At Preasy, dupreeh will link up with Alexander "Altekz" Givskov, Thomas "TMB" Bundsbæk, Ismail "refrezh" Ali, and Fredrik "roeJ" Røj Christensen, keeping an all-Danish Counter-Strike lineup, which previously featured nicoodoz.

Nicodooz, who left for Heroic, was a key player of Preasy and the second-highest-rated player since the transition to Counter-Strike 2. However, despite losing the Danish AWPer, Preasy feel confident about their chances to do well with dupreeh.

Coach Daniel "⁠Vorborg⁠" Vorborg talked about the roster change, stating that he doesn't view dupreeh as a downgrade to nicoodoz.

"After losing nicoodoz, very few candidates didn't seem like a downgrade, and dupreeh was one of them. We are gaining a massive amount of experience, and I can't wait to integrate dupreeh into the team."

Dupreeh has spent the last two months with Heroic, who the Dane joined in October as a temporary player until the team found more permanent solutions. Heroic eventually found three new players in nicoodoz, Guy "NertZ" Iluz, and Damjan "kyxsan" Stoilkovski, and allowed dupreeh to explore his options.

Dupreeh Decides To Join Preasy

As stated by the Danish Counter-Strike veteran, he had many options on the table, including from some of the top teams in the CS scene. However, he decided to join Preasy Esports, with who dupreeh believes can do well at the upcoming PGL Major Copenhagen.

"Some of the people behind it have a great track record with Copenhagen Flames. As I've played a couple of Majors, I like the thought of being able to give back a little to the Danish grassroots in Danish CS. 
I know we don't go in as favourites, but you won't see me standing on the sidelines without having given it everything to try to get a seat at the table."

Even though dupreeh joining Preasy means that the team won't have a natural sniper, this might not affect them too much, knowing that AWPers have proven to be less impactful on Counter-Strike 2.

Still, while Preasy won't have a dedicated sniper, one of the five players will have to take on the AWPing duties. Who that might be remains to be seen.
