German esports organization Mousesports have unveiled their new look CS:GO lineup, which now features former FaZe Clan IGL Finn ‘karrigan‘ Andersen, and new additions in Özgür ‘woxic’ Eker and David ‘frozen’ Čerňanský.

After failing to qualify for the IEM Katowice Major, changes seemed inevitable at mouz, and making way for the new additions meant releasing Tomas ‘oskar’ Stastny after over two years with the organization.

Miikka ‘suNny’ Kemppi is remaining with the organization, but will move to the bench. Sources have told Dexerto that suNny has been in talks with ENCE.

suNny is still contracted with mouz, while oskar has been released.

In their announcement post, Mousesports explained that the two departing players “didn’t share our vision for the new team”, as CEO Stefan Wendt clarified “We want to go back to a team that is highly motivated and eager to play for this organization.” 

Sources have informed Dexerto that mouz are also trialing Rejin has the team’s new coach.

Karrigan comes in to the lineup after a middling time with Envy, who also missed out on the Katowice Major narrowly, but his experience will be invaluable to an otherwise young roster.

The Dane is returning to the organization he represented back in early 2013, and will now face the task of “leading a group of talented young stars.”

Turkish woxic is one of these exciting young talents, who has impressed as a versatile player and a talented AWPer during his time with Hellraisers.

Slovakian-born frozen may be lesser known to fans, and joins from ‘NoChance’ – a team originally started by teamless stars including Adil ‘ScreaM’ Benrlitom.

The new mousesports roster doesn’t have long to adapt to the karrigan’s leadership and become accustomed to each other, as they continue the ECS Season 7 matches on Monday, March 18, with the ESL Pro League Season 8 starting a month later.


How arT’s aggression is leading FURIA’s CSGO charge to site

Andrei ‘arT’ Piovezan has led FURIA to the top of NA Counter-Strike thanks not only to his calling but also his ultra-aggressive playstyle. 

Dexerto explores the Brazilian’s signature aggression and how it has defined him as the most offensive player in CSGO history. 

His playstyle slowly leaked into his strategies, making FURIA one of the most aggressive teams in the world: allowing them to become the most successful T-side team over the last few months. 

This was clear during ESL Pro League 11 NA, where arT’s aggressive pushes and misdirection on Inferno led the team to a dominant win against the best NA had to offer. All this while delivering some of the most entertaining CS ever. 

The importance of his dual-role as a IGL and Entry-Fragger is not lost, allowing him to quickly adapt his calling after going first into bombsites. 

ArT has led FURIA to become true contenders on the world stage but now the difficult part begins: keeping ahead of the curve and keep the elements of surprise on his side.
