On Friday, August 18, EYEBALLERS announced Ludvig "HEAP" Alonso as a permanent member of the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive roster. The Swede joins the team on a permanent basis as a replacement for Robin "flusha" Rönnquist, who recently retired from professional CS:GO.

HEAP has been signed to the Swedish esports organisation on Friday, on a permanent basis, following his short stint with the squad as a stand-in. HEAP joined EYEBALLERS at the start of August and has since helped the team compete at Intel Extreme Masters Sydney 2023: European Open Qualifier #1 and #2. 

Unfortunately, EYEBALLERs didn't make it through either of the two qualifiers, crashing out in 18th-32nd and ninth-16th place.

The 23-year-old joins EYEBALLERS as a replacement for one of the team's founding members and CS:GO legend, flusha, who announced his retirement from professional play on Tuesday.

"In our ambition to bring swedish Counter-Strike to the top again, we've been looking for the perfect fit to our team and the player to fill the holes that flusha left. Now we've found our guy, and it's time for our stand-in to officially wear the red and white jersey."

In the announcement, EYEBALLERS stated that the team has set high goals for Counter-Strike 2 and that the addition of HEAP is one of the steps towards building something great. The organisation's founder, Jesper "JW" Wecksell called HEAP one of the most promising young players in Sweden and a huge part in EYEBALLERS' new project.

I'm extremely happy that we managed to sign HEAP to EYEBALLER. He's a guy that's been on my radar for a long time, and in my opinion he's one of the most promising young players in Sweden. His potential is sky high and I'm sure that he'll fit right into our roster, and together with us I really think that HEAP will grow and become an even better player.

HEAP started his professional CS:GO career in 2018 and made a name for himself during his stint with Dignitas in 2020-22, with who he made several appearances in big events. Since leaving Dignitas in May 2022, HEAP has remained unseen in the professional CS scene until earlier this month, when he joined EYEBALLERS as a stand-in.

With the signing of HEAP, EYEBALLERS are back at fielding a complete roster, which already played its first match at CCT North Europe Series 7, where EYEBALLERS lost against Sampi (0-2).
