Mousesports is thinking about benching Polish CS:GO player Janusz ‘Snax’ Pogorzelski according to an insider report.

The Polish player hasn’t been meshing well with the rest of the roster and, according to a VPEsports report, was not invited to a recent players-only meeting.

Even though Snax has had a fair amount of success in his short time with the team, including a win at ESL One New York on September 30th, he will be officially benched in the coming days, according to their report.

Even that win doesn’t appear to be enough to stick with their current roster, a testament to their previous success as an organization, and Mouse will be hoping a roster change returns them to the dominant form of last Spring.

This is a costly benching for Mousesports who bought out Snax from his previous contract with Virtus.Pro in June for a whopping $290,000 according to DBLTAP.

His rumored replacement is support player Martin ‘STYKO’ Styk who was lent to Cloud 9 for two months after being removed from the starting roster in favor of Snax.

This move makes sense for Mouse because STYKO is still under contract with the organization, he returned to the team on September 22nd, and he has proven chemistry with the rest of the roster.

MIBR has confirmed three signings ahead of their 2021 CS:GO rebuild, bringing on former member LUCAS1 permanently, as well as vsm and leo_drunky on loan.

MIBR’s CSGO team has gone through a bit of a rollercoaster ride lately. Last month, they dropped two star players, TACO and fer, and coach dead after a major coaching scandal. Then, FALLEN left due to his dissatisfaction with their decision.

Losing the old SK core has forced the organization to rebuild the team from scratch. However, they’ve locked in some of South America’s brightest talent to do so.

MIBR has added Leonardo ‘leo_drunky’ Oliveira, Lucas ‘LUCAS1’ Teles, and Vinicius ‘vsm’ Moreira to their roster. The October 23 announcement confirmed LUCAS1 would be a permanent addition, while vsm and leo_drunky would play on loan from their respective teams.

It comes after a multitude of rumors about where MIBR’s squad would land after the SK core departed.

LUCAS1 played for MIBR in 2019, where he spent six months in the squad before moving on to Imperial e-Sports. He spent almost a year with Imperial, before suddenly leaving the squad just a few weeks ago.

His experience, not only in CS:GO but with MIBR, will help the Brazilian legends get back on their feet.

vsm and Leo_drunky provide beacons of hope for the region’s future too. However, vsm’s VAC ban could hinder them when it comes around to major events.

Leo_drunky is only 20 years old and could be a valuable member of the team for years to come.

The two youngsters join MIBR on loan from Sharks Esports (leo_drunky) and Detona (vsm). However, if things go well, it’s likely they’ll be signed on permanently.

MIBR has also secured the services of CS 1.6 veteran Raphael ‘cogu’ Camargo. After a year since his last major gig, he is returning to the team that started it all. He played on MIBR’s 1.6 roster from 2004 to 2009.
