To sum up, 2012 was a rough year for SK gaming. It was clear that the era of CS source was at an end. Ultimately, Patrik decided to pack his bags for the Counter-Strike Global Offensive.

Ninjas in Pyjamas signed him late in 2012. But, 2013 was a long year for NiP. Finally, NiP finished 2nd in the Majors at Dreamhack Winters 2013 and ESM One Katowice 2014.

Except, the fabled major for Ninjas in pyjamas would come in 2014 ESL One Cologne. F0rest maintained and stayed at his peak for two more years. He signed with Dignitas give me in 2022 after years of CSGO woes at NiP.

F0rest joined Dignitas CSGO in 2020.

To date, F0rest has won one major trophy and two LAN trophies. Now, at 33 years of age, the pandemic norms have been pretty rough for Dignitas Gaming. Also, they have won only three B-Tier championships in the last 2 years.

In spite of all that, F0rest is a Living Legend. Moreover, he has dedicated half his lifetime Counter-Strike. To be honest, it is an honour to still see him play in the CSGO Pro circuit.
