Over the last few weeks there has been a lot of talk over where Mousesports' CS:GO player Miikka 'SuNny' Kemppi would be going, with the most recent reports indicating an interest from Major finalists Ence, but now Mousesports has taken the headlines by revealing a brand new roster.
Former FaZe Clan player Finn 'Karrigan' Andersen returns to the team after a spell on Envy's roster, and here's what he had to say about his early days on the team, where he's leading a group of young players:
"The lineup consist of a very good mix of young and experienced players, most important is the chemistry between players, which is really good. With good chemistry, hardworking players and right mentality you can go very far, which is our main goal during 2019. The first days with these guys have been awesome, I hope that it will show in the coming months how we improve as a team."
"We want to go back to a team that is highly motivated and eager to play for this organization. Together we want to leave our mark in this very important period with two huge events in our home country," added Mousesports CEO Stefan Wendt.
Joining Karrigan is another newbie Özgür 'Woxic' Eker from HellRaisers, along with David 'Frozen' Cernansky from the Faceit Pro League. Rounding off the roster we have Robin 'Ropz' Kool and Crhis 'ChrisJ' de Jong
This means of course that SuNny is out of the squad, as well as Tomas 'Oskar' Stastny, with Oskar's contract being terminated while SuNny remains part of the organisation while, presumably, talks about his future are ongoing.
Their first ECS tournament will start on March 18, which is when you can see this new roster in action. Is it a good team?
