mousesports has picked up a new trio of players following its unsuccessful run at the IEM Katowice Major.
The organization announced today that renowned in-game leader Finn "Karrigan" Andersen has joined the team with HellRaisers' Ozgur "woxic" Eker and NoChance's David "frozen" Cernansky. The three players will be replacing Miikka "suNny" Kemppi, Martin "STYKO" Styk, and Tomas "oskar" Stastny on the active roster. Mouz reached a mutual agreement to terminate oskar's contract, while suNny will be on the bench, where he will await a buyout from a prospective team.
These changes will cause Mouz to undergo a full role revamp, with karrigan taking on the main IGL responsibilities, woxic being the primary AWP, Chris "chrisJ" de Jong likely acting as a support and secondary AWP, frozen entry fragging, and ropz continuing his lurking. Having two proven IGLs on the team, with chrisJ being the second, will definitely help them in the freeze time and mid-round playcalling.

SuNny decided that it was best for him to move to the bench in a Twitter post. ChrisJ reiterated this sentiment in an Instagram post of his own, while saying that "we all changed as players and humans and the lineup was no longer compatible."
"We want to go back to a team that is highly motivated and eager to play for this organization," Mouz CEO Stefan Wendt said in an announcement. "A team with great chemistry and the will to work hard towards our common goal. Together we want to leave our mark in this very important period with two huge events in our home country and beyond. I couldn’t be happier with our new team and I am very confident in their abilities."
This new Mouz lineup can be seen in action in ECS Season Seven and in ESL Pro League Season Nine in the coming weeks and months.
