Simon “twist” Eliasson, born 12 Dec, 1994 is a professional Counter-Strike: Global Offensive player from Sweden, currently playing for Lemondogs, as a rifler and AWPer.
The history of twist
He discovered Counter-Strike as a boy, while he watched his dad play. It was their daily routine, and they used video games to develop a strong father-son relationship, since his dad was working a lot, and it was pretty much the only time they could spend together.
His parents separated while twist was still in elementary school, which was really tough for him to handle, and that was why he pursued Counter-Strike even stronger than before. It was his way to escape and forget about the troubles. He was chasing his dream while at the same time avoiding real-life issues.
twist often says that CS:GO was his tool for overcoming the worst parts of his life and that it represents a safe space for him. He is happy while he is in front of the computer, and he wants it to stay that way.
Even though he is very young, he has gathered experience playing for a multitude of teams such as Lemondogs, SK, LGB, TEAMGLOBAL, Property, 1337, Copenhagen Wolves, DenDD, GODSENT, Red Reserve, fnatic and Lemondogs.
twist’s style of play is fast and flashy, making him so exciting to watch. It is not strange for him to go on a rampage and eliminate the whole opponent’s team, leaving them and the crowd with mouth and eyes wide open.
It is inspiring to know that this young man was able to conquer his life challenges and focus on the thing he truly loves, providing us with so many great matches. With the right mindset and the right effort, twist could be a force to be reckoned with in the future.
