The new Mousesports Counter-Strike: Global Offensive roster is trialing Allan ‘Rejin’ Petersen as their head coach, according to multiple sources close to the players. 

Rejin is a former head coach for the Tricked Esport organization but has not coached for a professional team since 2017. Rejin was also a professional player in Counter-Strike: Source and CS:GO, first surfacing in mid-2009. 

In 2010, the Dane played on a lineup named ‘PENTIA’ with current Astralis in-game leader Lukas ‘gla1ve’ Rossander. Later on in 2011, Mathias ‘MSL’ Lauridsen would join the lineup alongside the other two Danes.

New Mousesports recruit karrigan could be joined by fellow Dane, Rejin.

Once he transitioned to CS:GO in 2012, Rejin played with Astralis player Andreas ‘Xyp9x’ Højsleth on a team named CPLAY. 

From there, Rejin bounced around as a member of a few different mixed Danish lineups, but didn’t achieve international results. It wasn’t until early 2017 that he made the transition to coach and joined the Tricked Esport organization.

Mouseports announced their new active roster today – it includes three new players, with Finn ‘karrigan’ Andersen, David ‘frozen’ Čerňanský, and Özgür ‘woxic’ Eker joining the team. 

Retained on the Mouz roster are Chris ‘chrisJ’ de Jong, who returns from a short stint on the bench, and Robin ‘ropz’ Kool. It was first reported by Dexerto that karrigan was in discussions with Mouseports last week.

This will not be karrigan’s first time with the organization, though. The veteran in-game leader has previously represented Mousesports in both 1.6 and CS:GO.

From the ashes rise the phoenix: how Poizon helped Complexity upset the CS:GO pro scene.

With a history stretching as far back as 2013, Complexity Gaming have become one of the staple teams in the European CS:GO scene. However, CEO Jason Lake made the decision that 2020 was going to be the year Complexity became more than just a staple: they were here to dominate.

Picking up Valentin ‘poizon’ Vasilev from the tier 2 scene to add some precision to the squad in the AWS position. Although, some fans weren’t sure whether poizon was the player for the job.

The Blast Premier Spring 2020 Regular Season allowed poizon to show off his skills, ending in Complexity making it to second place, followed by a strong performance at DreamHack Open Anaheim.

This, coupled with a deal with ESL, secured a coveted place at ESL Pro League Season 11. Despite poizon being seriously injured, his prowess led to the team securing 10th to 12th place. This set them up beautifully for their dominant performance in the European finals, which they ultimately won due to insane plays from poizon.

It’s safe to say that poizon is Complexity’s secret weapon, and it’ll be exciting to watch his journey.
