History[edit]

Team NoA is a professional Counter-Strike team who are as well known for setting precedents as they are for being a successful team. Founded by Jonas 'bsl' Alsaker, the team was several times regarded as the worlds best, taking home many prestigious "trophies" (or at least victories). They were the first professional e-sports team to consist of members from multiple continents when they formed the team of highly experienced players from Norway, Canada and USA. They were also the first e-sports team ever to pay for a player transfer out of a contract when they bought Ola 'elemeNt' Moum out of his contract with SK Gaming.


In 2007 Team NoA merged with, and became the Danish Counter-Strike team in the mortalTeamwork (mTw) organization.[1] mTw.dk dominated Counter-Strike in 2008, winning both KODE5 Global Finals, Intel Extreme Masters Continental Finals and the World Cyber Games amongst others. The Danes were awarded 'eSports Team of the Year'. The team was terminated in November 2011, due to the development of the computer game Counter-Strike 1.6.
