Biography

Jesper "jw" Wecksell is a Swedish CS:GO player, formerly a Counter-Strike 1.6 player. He is known for his aggressive play-style with the AWP. He currently plays for fnatic.

jw's first major team was Epsilon eSports, where he finished in 2nd place at DreamHack Summer 2013 and E-Sport SM 2013. Both tournaments occurred in the same venue on the same weekend, and had Epsilon losing to Ninjas in Pyjamas in both Grand Finals. On July 24, 2013, Epsilon eSports parted ways with the CS:GO squad due to the organization "shifting priorities and venturing into new territory". On August 6, 2013, fnatic sign the former Epsilon roster. They proceed to win DreamHack Winter 2013 over Ninja in Pyjamas.

jw and fnatic had a rough start to 2014, placing outside the top 4 at EMS One Katowice, Fragbite Masters and Copenhagen Games. After their win at E-Sport SM 2014 and a roster change, the team's results improved drastically in both online and LAN environments, with the exception of a 5th-8th placement at DreamHack Winter 2014.

fnatic had a dominant performance throughout 2015, winning most of the major LAN events or at least placing top 4. At the end of ESL One Cologne 2015, flusha, jw, and pronax became the top 3 players in terms of prize money won in CS:GO, surpassing the Ninjas in Pyjamas players.
