Fredrik Jørgensen, known as “roeJ,” is a 27-year-old Danish CS:GO player who has been representing Copenhagen Flames for over only five months. Before that, he was playing for MAD Lions.

Copenhagen Flames managed to impress the whole Counter-Strike scene with their performance at IEM Fall 2021 as they took down the best teams in there, and they are continuing to perform at PGL Major Stockholm.

roeJ spoke in a recent interview with hltv.org and talked about their performances at both IEM and PGL, compared his individual level when he was in MAD Lions as well as revealing their expectations for the major.

In the conversation, roeJ pointed out that they would like to reach the top 8, which is the Champions stage, and they could get their first autograph stickers in this way. However, they are not really thinking about it at all.

roeJ focused upon the fact that they are evaluating their options one step at a time, and they are only thinking about winning the matches only. As roeJ said, they hope this strategy brings them to where they want to go.

roeJ on their goals for the major:

“Of course, the dream would definitely be to make it to the top eight and get our first autograph stickers, play on the stage… I mean, I don’t know, I haven’t even thought about that, coming here.

I have shifted my thoughts a little bit towards it and it just feels too unreal to even think about, I’m just like ‘there’s no way…’

We are pretty good with just taking it one step at a time, and pita together with vorborg are really good at shifting the focus away, making sure it’s one step at a time, one match at a time, that what we did before doesn’t matter and now we need to focus on winning this game and do all we have to do to perform.

I think the environment we’re in right now with pita and vorborg, it’s really, really good, especially for the young guys. Sometimes you can get a bit ahead of yourself, and we especially had a lot of issues with winning a really important match that was really hype and then playing again the same day.”

He continued:

“Like for example against Astralis, I think we had an issue with that because it was really hard to reset and calm down, and they have been really good at making that environment for us and being able to do those kinds of things.

I was really happy after the second win against BIG for sure, because that’s something we hadn’t done and we had had issues with in online matches. I was just really proud of the team, it was really nice.

Right now, we’ll just take it one step at a time, one map at a time, and hopefully it takes us where we want to go, but whatever happens now, we can be nothing but proud of what we have accomplished. This can only be a really happy ending for us, playing here.”

Later in the conversation, the experienced player also talked about their matches against Astralis, BIG, and Heroic in the tournament and explained what was different while heading towards those matches.
