EYEBALLERS have announced the signing of Alex "poiii" Sundgren as the newest member of the Counter-Strike division. The 17-year-old rounds up EYEBALLERS' new roster, replacing Anton "Sapec" Palmgren, who left the team last month.

Poiii fills up the void left behind by Sapec's departure to Metizport in early July and will take over for Robin "flusha" Ronnquist, who stood in for EYEBALLERS since Sapec's departure. Poiii's arrival now sees flusha take a step back again.

The signing of the 17-year-old by the Swedish esports organisation comes as no surprise, as he has been hailed as the next Swedish Counter-Strike superstar. While he has very little experience competing on the big stage, Poiii has already made a name for himself.

Poiiii joined Lilmix in February 2024 and quickly found traction. He has averaged a 1.26 performance rating with the team over 25 maps played. As confirmed by EYEBALLERS, he has peaked at a 4,000 ELO rating on FACEIT.

But even though poiii has only recently found himself under the spotlight, EYEBALLERS have supposedly had their eyes set on the 17-year-old since 2022.

"When we had just started the team, we went to DreamHack to meet our fans. At that weekend, Alex showed up and challenged us to shootouts in the JBL booth and won a shirt. Somewhere in there, I think he decided to focus on Counter-Strike," said EYEBALLERS CEO Jesper "JW" Wecksell.

Despite still attending high school, joining EYEVBALLERS gives poiii a chance to focus on Counter-Strike esports full-time, and as stated by the player, he has full support from his family.

"EYEBALLERS have been incredibly professional in their dialogue with me and my parents, who are very important to me in my adventure. Having support from home means everything."
"I am very grateful for this chance to play with legendary players like Golden and JW who have lifted the biggest trophies together. I know I have to work hard to one day be as successful as them."

Poiii is set to debut for EYEBALLERS at ESL Challenger League Season 48: Europe, which is set to kick off on July 15, 2024.
