Mousesports’ were both benched.

Since then, it has been reported that star fragger Miikka ‘suNny’ Kemppi looks set to leave the team and join Cloud9, leaving the German-based organization having to shake things up with only two active players, Robin ‘Ropz’ Kool and Tomas ‘oskar’ Stastny, on the roster if suNny does indeed depart.

DreamhackChrisJ looks set to return to the Mouz starting line-up.

According to reports from HLTV, and French insider neLdirekt, on March 4, mousesports are lining up moves for Hellraisers’ Özgür ‘woxic’ Eker and rising star David ‘frozen’ Čerňanský from NoChance.

The team is also expected to add benched FaZe Clan member Finn ‘Karrigan’ Andersen to the roster, as was reported earlier by Dexerto’s Jarek ‘DeKay’ Lewis.

StarLadderThe Hellraisers star looks to be making the move across to Mouz.

The reports also suggest that woxic would take over the primary AWP role from oskar, who does not appear to be included in the roster. With Karrigan set to assume the in-game leader role, ChrisJ would presumably take up a position as a rifler. 

Adding 16-year-old talent frozen would be a proto-typical mousesports move – adding and developing players before that eventually become a star is not unheard of for the organization. 

If all the reports turn out to be true, Mousesports’ roster would consist of:

  • Robin ‘Ropz’ Kool
  • Chris ‘ChrisJ’ De Jong
  • Özgür ‘woxic’ Eker
  • David ‘frozen’ Čerňanský
  • Finn ‘Karrigan’ Andersen

The opening game saw Astralis take on Evil Geniuses in a three-game series, with an incredibly close first map going the way of EG 14-16. The North American team’s ability to convert pistol rounds was not enough to guarantee a second map, with both Overpass (16-8) and Vertigo (16-6) being taken by the Danes. 

FURIA vs G2 Esports was a much closer affair. G2 took the initiative on Inferno (12-16) taking FURIA’s map pick but felt short on their own one with a crushing 14-16 defeat on Mirage. Nuke (10-16) decided the series in favour of G2 following a brilliant offence in the second half.
