karrigan joins mouz for ESWC

mousesports have announced that they will attend the ESWC finals with Finn "Karrigan" Andersen as their fifth player.

The Danish player had been widely expected to join mouz after leaving CPH Wolves in the build-up to the ESWC qualifier and acting as a stand-in for Chris "chrisJ" de Jong's side in recent online matches.

This is the third stint in mousesports for Finn "karrigan" Andersen, who represented the German organisation in 2010 in 1.6 and in late 2012/early 2013, this time in CS:GO.

He will be stepping into the shoes of Oliver "kzy" Heck, who stepped down from the team last month after disagreeing with the playing style that was in place.

karrigan to wear mouz's shirt again

mouz used Andreas "znajder" Lindberg and Mikail "Maikelele" Bill as a stand-ins but neither player ended up joining on a permanent basis.

While the former declined the chance to do so because of personal problems, the latter was allegedly not perceived as a viable option as he would become the third AWPer of the team, who decided to go for a rifler instead.

This means that mouz will attend the ESWC finals with:

Netherlands Chris "chrisJ" de Jong
Germany Johannes "tabseN" Wodarz
Serbia Nikola "LEGIJA" Ninić
Finland Aleksi "allu" Jalli
Denmark Finn "karrigan" Andersen

because so far every team he joins ends up failing/disbanding. his in-game level is so much lower than it was in 1.6 he is pretty much the go-to player if literally NO ONE else is available.
2014-10-13 16:08

2014-10-13 16:31
Think about Football. There are quarterbacks like Tim Tebow who aren't that great, by pro standards. However, Tebow could have still made millions of dollars playing at another position, but he refused to do that for the broncos and instead stopped playing football completely, because he didn't want to play if he couldn't play in the position he felt suited him. Maybe Ukulele won't play if he can't be the awper.
2014-10-13 17:15
Tim Tebow couldn't play any position at all. Too slow to be a running back or wideout, to inaccurate to be a passer. Maybe and just maybe he could have transfered to a none-blitzning linebacker, he had the build for it, and then go play in Canada.
2014-10-13 17:39
Well, whether he would have done well isn't *super* important to the analogy. The point is that sometimes the position is more important than being on the team for some people.
2014-10-15 01:29
Oh, you mean "football". You almost got me there.

He ended more or less average for his team - topfragged once, bottomfragged once and mostly at third place.
2014-10-13 17:44
he topfragged pretty heavily on 3rd and most important map of the finals, where they made a comeback on t side of mirage to win the whole thing. he's more consistant than most german players and exactly what mouz needs, which is a rifler, not a 3rd awper.

You all saying that the teams are disbanding only cuz of Karrigan are retarded, how the fuck would it be his fault, these kind of teams that just dont win disband because they feel they cant win something with this kind of lineup and keep trying to force something that could actully make some problem in match vs other pro teams. Karrigan is not so bad + he was one of the top in 1.6 and once someone had this kind of experience he just need motivation and start to train more. If youre all so smart, why are you here on hltv.org saying the teams are making stupid things and they play actually in the tournament, i think they know a lot more than you all do.
