mosbeck replaces stan^ in Curse
North American Curse have undergone roster changes after a disappointing showing at DreamHack. They've replaced Stan "stan^" Sukachov with Denial's Justin "mosbeck" Mosbeck.
Curse currently hold the second place in ESEA Invite Season 14 behind Denial eSports, who recently lost their star player Sam "DaZeD" Marine. They remain the only undefeated team in ESEA North America at 10-0.
According to a statement issued to ESEA News, Sukachov lost his spark towards Counter-Strike during the trip to DreamHack and couldn't remain motivated enough to compete against the top European teams.
DaZeD's departure led to Mosbeck leaving as well
Replacing him is Mosbeck, who currently holds the highest KPR in ESEA Invite as he has recorded 1.011 kills per round through the first 272 rounds this season. His ADS is 99.1, and he sports a K-D difference of +127.
Below is the official statement from Mosbeck, which he shared with ESEA News regarding his decision to depart Denial eSports for what he assumes to be the greener pastures of Curse:
"The reason why i decided to join Curse were for a few reasons. First off if DaZeD didn't leave the team to pursue a career in MLG I definitely would not have left. With that being said he did end up leaving and left us without an ingame leader for Denial. We talked about but still were unsure who was "really" going to lead the team ingame, said Mosbeck.
"I in turn was approached by Curse asking if I would be interested in playing out the season with them and attending the ESEA LAN and possible future events. After everything that happened and the current state of the team I was on it felt like it was the best decision for me and I have no regrets."
This move leaves Curse, who are scheduled to play a doubleheader versus Stay Frosty and Rareform on Sunday, with the following roster:
Eric "adreN" Hoag
Todd "anger" Williams
Tyler "Skadoodle" Latham
Justin "mosbeck" Mosbeck
Keven "AZK" Lariviére
Denial on the other hand are short of a player and with the roster lock taking place in just over two days and fourteen hours at the time of writing, are expected to add a new member to their squad soon:
Carey "frozt" Kertenian
Trey "tck" Martin
Ricky "sLip" Cohen
Neil "MONTE" Montgomery
