Stages of the karrigan cycle: 1) Karrigan joins a team 2) The team is trash for quite some time 3) Eventually, the team finds some success (wins a couple of events but not even close to an era, chokes at majors) 4) The downfall starts 5) Changes are implemented by the team to counter the downfall 6) The changes don't work 7) The downfall continues 8) Karrigan is kicked from the team Mouz are at stage 4 right now

I told you all this, and karrigan dickriders kept attacking me. I gave him the benefit of the doubt after he got kicked from Astralis, after the failure in Faze it is clear karrigan is the problem. This is what he does in any team. Join, win 1-2 tournaments, downfall, gets kicked. Time for him to look in the mirror.
2020-05-03 19:50
Sure, Faze is so good now, without karrigan

OMG HAVE THEY? what an absolute beast team, won all esl games, too bad they havent won any titles ever since karrigan left the team. mouse has already won events with karrigan, 50 iq people just dont get it that without him mousesports wouldnt have even reached close to top.

I didn't say faze haven't achieved anything with karrigan, did I? FaZe aren't looking bad at all right now either. I never said mousesports would be better off without him, in fact I actually think he's doing a good job.
2020-05-08 23:42
faze isn't looking good and isn't looking bad. that's the problem. they're a consistent t2 team.

Norway Kimern all without karrigan wierd right? *Faze havent won sh't wihtout karrigan* Mouz have won 4 tittels for now, and FaZe are on a rise , rn Broky show some good ass plays aswell , i think faze could go all the way back to top 3, sorry dude, but i have more fath in FaZe then Mouz rn, and Mouz have the youngsters aswell, Karrigan , legit have Ropz,Frozen and Woxic , u cant blame Chrisj for lossing games, look at the paper you have 3 youngster who need to put up the numbers, on the other hand we have FaZe Niko still young and IGling and put up huge stats, Rain pretty soild , Coldzera solid aswell, Broky seems like this guy could be the next big thing, and i think FaZe will ad Bymas , that means we have 3 youngster aswell but ,FaZe have system around Every player it seems like , idk about mouz anymore tbh, i just think they should try to stick togheter a bit longer if they dont show anything , kick someone or so idk who but dont alyways blame chrisj, and karrigan , i dont watch mouz anymore but you have 3 youngsters
2020-05-25 10:55
karrigan made faze good for waYY longer then two tournaments
2020-05-08 23:47
you are speaking like its a bad thing that he manages to make a team that win several tournaments even for a short while. its almost like he is good at it, no matter if there is downfall, its wins that matters to teams and if we is capable doing that to organization he has earned his place and salary.

2020-05-24 19:27
Faze RIGHT NOW is better than MOUZ, try again karrigan fanboy.
2020-05-24 21:13
Still, karrigan is gone and faze is not performing like in they did in 2017, when they still had karrigan Also a few months ago mouz was x50 better than faze
2020-05-24 21:22
Bro wtf they did in 2017? Are you kidding me? They couldn't dominate anything, they always lost vs SK, they won like 3 tournaments lmfao. Mouz was better than faze a few months ago but that is not because of Karrigan. Mouz has won only one real t1 tournament at that was the pro league finals which astralis completely threw. They haven't won anything notable at all (i dont care about t2 tournaments).
2020-05-24 22:42
1) I literally never said faze dominated the scene. But they were definitely better at the time than right now, i mean at least they won a few tournaments back then. And they were constantly playing finals against SK/Astralis etc. if I recall correctly. 2) At least mouz with karrigan won a t1 event. How many t1 events did Faze win in 2019? 0. Faze is only better right now because of online cs. When LANs start they will start choking again, lol
2020-05-25 01:34
Yeah amazing how botigan fanboys keep changing the history, faze sucked dick EVEN before karrigan left and were not winning shit, that's why he got kicked. Can't wait for your excuses when karrigan is eventually kicked for the third time in a row.
2020-05-25 01:35
Faze sucked dick? Man they were top2 team of 2017 lol. I'm not changing any history, you can check the actualy history on and see that Faze used to be a good team
2020-05-25 01:37
Read again what i said. Right before karrigan left faze were garbage and you can't deny that.
2020-05-25 01:37
yes thats true, but it not the main topic. You are blaming karrigan for faze's falldown, but in reality, Faze was and is still shit after karrigan left them. At #4, you said that karrigan was the problem of faze, and we all saw that he was not.
2020-05-25 02:30
He WAS the problem. Just because Faze are idiots for not replacing him with another good player and using standins and not even trying to sign a competent IGL, does not mean he was NOT the problem. Two things can be true you know? As i said i will just wait for you guys' excuses when mouz players lose faith in him and he gets inevitably kicked.

He just does NOT frag. If you want to be a top contender you need to frag as an IGL or just expect at least 2 players to go beast mode. That is just to much pressure for the stars of the team. Rops / Woxic no 25/30 bomb no win.

Well Karrigan has always been a shitty IGL. He will never build a stable and successful team
2020-05-08 23:22
he is tier 1 IGL, but he did not born for winings majors sadly, I like this pigy face
2020-05-08 23:25
He is not tier 1 IGL, he is tier 3 IGL. He has always got really good players to build his team with, yet they never get to the level they are supposed to, because of karrigan.

I like how mouz plays right now and I hope it doesn't happen like Karrigan's previous teams but I do think it's going occur soon. Idk who you would even add or remove though, surely ChrisJ gets removed before Karrigan? But then who do you pick up in his place? What entry fragging or supportive players are available that are better than him?

karrigan is definitely the problem. every line up he's been IGL for has managed to get into the top 5 he can rally players, knows how to use them well but can't overcome the mental hurdle wants he's broken into the top 5. You saw it with TSM, you saw it with FAZE and now with mouse They come out losing games, they develop and build strats and teamwork and their game plans are on point the teams always end up looking really polished and have incredible cohesion. Break into top 5, karrigan dismisses all game plans, all strategy and throws the team into more of a pug / 2015 fnatic scenario thinking confidence and results will make up for being lazy. however the players he has require structure and game plans because that's all they've had the chance to experience in their careers. Ropz = amazing aimer, really good situational < meaning he needs others doing their planned roles. Frozen = good aimer, left up to his own his decision making against top players usually leads to a loss ChrisJ & woxic = capable of being free roaming players to fit a looser playstyle this make the way for ropz and frozen to shine in their allocated roles bringing the matches into the agreed upon game plan format.
2020-05-17 07:39
wow you should be pro team coach
2020-05-17 08:03
Pretty much this. All this happened with TSM, happened with different FaZe's rosters, has been happening with mouz right now.

2020-05-17 08:15
lol thats actually true
2020-05-22 15:55
Well not really true. Also clear you forget cs is a sport. Like most socalled cs fans. Cs pro scene is 30 teams, every team in top 30 is a pro team, is a very good team, No one here could be on one of those teams. Not every team can be the best. and for some that isnt even the goal. karrigan is one of the best IGL ever, and he always brings something to a team, and improve it, like he did with Mouse. Mouse is not where they want right now. true. but to blame karrigan for that dont really make sense when its the fraggers that overall fails. And talking about eras.. what is it people dont get.. its so simple. An era is something special. there have been 2 or 3 ever. just because you are number 1 for a time, or win. dont mean you have an era. 99% of all people and teams never get to be part of a team that have an era. Its not how its meant to be, as said the pro scene is 30 teams. being among those 30 is good. more than most will ever get close to. having an era is for a very very few players. the number 10 team might be right where they mean to be, and the same with 20 and 30. not all teams are meant to be number 1. in any sport. cs is no different. Is karrigan the best IGL, no. Is he the worst in top 30. also no. People need to look at the teams he is ad, and the players on those teams. Its become a thing and a meme just to say karrigan bad everytime other tings go wrong. Ofc 98% of all on this site and cs fan isnt really fans, just haters of different things in cs. they dont enjoy the game, or understand it. And the hate on karrigan is the same. For what he is meant to do, he is doing it okay. Mouse as a whole is however failing. mostly because people that is meant to hold, aim and kill dont do it.
2020-05-22 16:04
Tbh ur not wrong ngl...
2020-05-22 16:07
karrigan is good at putting a team together, not so much playing the game he should consider retiring and becoming a coach when he left faze he was an absolute non-fragger, literally i could frag better than him and i have a full time job

Yea, the problem is you are comparing yourself to a MM match (and who knows what your rank is) to a pro match filled with pros

2020-05-25 10:41
U obviously do not know ur details about what happened at faze. They had somewhat succes from first event, as the though only days after he joined reached playoffs for the first time. They won titles also before the got olof and guardian, and after. Not that its all wrong what u say

mousesports are very inconsistent, they can play like TOP 1, and they can play like they would be some T2 team, or even worse. Also, karrigan isn't the problem in this roster.
2020-05-24 19:33
2020-05-24 19:36
Stage 4? More like Stage 7. He'll probably be gone within the next 1-2 months, depending on upcoming events & if COVID makes LANS a probability again.

2020-05-25 01:52
Very reminiscent of the MIBR cycle: 1. The team's shit 2. Kick the worst player that's not called TACO 3. Replace him with some inexperienced guy, purely based off of stats and not his role and/or playstyle 4. Refuse to change your playstyle in the slightest and force the new player to fit it and expect massive changes within 2 months 5. Kick the newest addition 6. Repeat.

some of these points aren't wrong in a historical context, but you need to remember mousesports have always been much better on lan than online. we should wait to see how they perform when offline events come back before we make any roster moves.
