Natus Vincere adds Secretly to its Rainbow Six Siege roster.
Rickard "Secretly" Olofsson announced via Twitter that he would be joining Na'Vi. With this announcement, he said “When the coaches and staff approached me to talk about the future of the team and the direction they wanted to go in, I was immediately sold. With a heavy focus on discipline and a strong mindset, [the sky's] the limit for us!” He described how initially the game was only played for fun and now it's a full-time profession for many people who are being paid salaries.
Secretly has played games competitively for about 15 years but only took it up as a career after playing Rainbow Six. Before he started playing R6, he was a sub in the game S.K.I.L.L. SF2. He is also a basketball fan. He played professionally by being a part of EURONICS Gaming. This team managed to break into the first Six Invitational 2017, successfully completing the European qualification. However, the team took only 5th-6th places at the tournament. Secretly then continued to perform in various tournaments and was also a part of Six Invitational 2018.
Secretly then became a part of Chaos Esports Club and reached the Semi-Final of the DreamHack Valencia 2019 and Allied Esports Vegas Minor 2019. He then won Nordic Championship 2020. He has earned over $7,000 in prize money.
The European league will begin on March 18. Secretly said “I will mostly be playing the hard support role, playing operators like Smoke and Ace. I will also be helping out with IGLing”.
The roster will feature:
- Jack "Doki" Robertson
- Szymon "Saves" Kamieniak
- Byron "Blurr" Murray
- Rickard "Secretly" Olofsson
- Nathan "Nathan" Sharp
- With Cyril "jahk" Renoud as the coach.
With such solid performances in his professional career till now, Secretly will start his performance for Na’Vi in the first stage of the European League 2021.
