At the upcoming tournament GG.Bet ICE Challenge, North will test former Alternate Attax coach, Torbjørn “mithR” Nyborg as first team coach. Nyborg will be standing in for Alexander “ave” Holdt who is set to be a father for the third time, and thus has to prioritize his family for the time to come. - I've chosen to put my coaching career on hold for now. The nature of competitive CS:GO includes a lot of traveling and time away from my family. Since my wife and I are expecting our third child this Spring, I've chosen to prioritize more time with my family, says Alexander “ave” Holdt. - My time in North included a lot of ups and downs. I am of course proud of our trophies, especially Dreamhack Masters, but I am also disappointed that we did not manage to take home more medals, create a consistent top team - and qualify for this upcoming Major. I was the coach, and I take the responsibility on my shoulders, Holdt continues. - I love the game and I'm forever grateful for the chance to coach
