London Conspiracy support player Malthe “Biver” Winther will be out of competition temporarily, while he recovers from an unfortunate arm injury. The Danish member is expected to return before The International qualifiers and the team will be utilizing Staffan “Steffstyle” Solin and other players as needed in the interim.
I unfortunately have to announce that I won't be playing for a few weeks due to an arm injury. Hoping for a fast recovery

Fans may have noticed that London Conspiracy has been playing with – and may continue to do so – Staffan “Steffstyle” Solin instead of Malthe “Biver” Winther.
While there is cause for concern, the nature of Biver’s abscence from official matches is due to an arm injury. The Danish support player will be undergoing treatment and will need ample time to recover.
Due to an arm injury that Malthe has been struggling to get fixed for some time, he now has to take a break from gaming for a few weeks to undergo a treatment. Meanwhile Malthe is under treatment for his injury, we will play with SteffStyle from COOKISS as a standin. We expect Malthe to be back before the TI qualifiers kick off.
– Linus ‘isola’ Svensson, London Conspiracy team manager
Steffstyle, currently a member of COOKISS, may continue to stand in for London Conspiracy on a temporary basis. While he is committed to his current team, LC may need to enlist the help of other players periodically as well when the Swedish support player is unavailable.
Our mid player Five (Adam Grönberg) is on a family vacation so it was just normal that LC would be using Steffstyle now that they have issues and we have nothing happening. Solen (Sebastian Kjær, LC captain and support player) also knows sSteffstyle’s playstyle very well since Team Coast days. Steffstyle is a very easy going person so it’s very easy for him and LC to adapt for this time period. It’s only for this short time period, though!
– Jonas “Mavav” Öberg, COOKISS team manager
Their next match is scheduled for Saturday, April 2nd, at 21:00 CEST, against Vega Squadron in the EPICENTER Moscow best-of-three lower brackets.
COOKISS are playing against NL5 in the Noshang Invitational at 17:00 CEST tonight. This will be COOKISS’ last match until Five returns from vacation, in one week. The team will be back in business starting April 9th.
At the end of October, the organization London Conspiracy announced a new roster featuring a Danish and Swedish mix of players put together by Jellopy. The team participated in the DreamLeague Season 4 qualifiers and the Frankfurt Major European Open Qualifiers. They most recently placed 7th in the PGL Dota 2 Pro-AM tournament and finished third in their group in WePlay League season 3.
On January 6th, the team secured their place in the Shanghai Major European Qualifiers after they clinched the last spot with a 2:1 victory over Power Rangers. Unfortunately for the team, they were unable to advance from the group stage into the regional qualifier playoffs.
London Conspiracy roster:
Jon “BabyKnight” Andersen
Sebastian “solen” Kjær
Linus “Kefka” Bleckert
Malthe “Biver” Winther
