steel fills in for mouz at ESEA LAN

Former iBUYPOWER member Joshua "steel" Nissan has been added to mousesports' lineup for the ESEA Finals.

Joshua "steel" Nissan has been playing for Torqued in FACEIT's G2A.com December Cup after being released by iBUYPOWER last month together with Sam "DaZeD" Marine as the team took a new direction before DreamHack Winter.

The Canadian player was added this morning to mouz's ESEA lineup, just 24 hours before the start of the North American event, which will be held in Dallas.

There has so far been no confirmation on who Lucas "steel" Lopes will be replacing, but a Twitter post from Chris "chrisJ" de Jong suggests that he is the one unable to travel to the United States, reportedly because of visa problems.

This is the second last-minute change for mousesports as the German team will also have to make do without Aleksi "allu" Jalli, who will be replaced by ALTERNATE's Fatih "gob b" Dayik.

If confirmed, mouz will attend the ESEA LAN with:

Germany Johannes "tabseN" Wodarz
Serbia Nikola "LEGIJA" Ninić
Denmark Finn "karrigan" Andersen
Turkey Fatih "gob b" Dayik (stand-in)
Canada Joshua "steel" Nissan (stand-in)

dont underestimate the esea power of steel on us soil. they at least made finals with this move. also steel on lan>chris on lan.
2014-12-04 15:57
If you really believe having yet another stand-in would benefit any team I feel sorry for you. This is no longer mouse playing, it's a mix of players. Such a silver comment.
2014-12-04 16:09
this is literally a scrim team now. scrims upset. that is a fact. denial is online as fuck. elevate is old as fuck(also rush is online as fuck so count him out this lan) ibp? nice inferno t side strats. c9, underperforming like fuck. titan playing with a mediocre former pro who has been irrelevant since forever. also they re rusty. im not sure if fnatic can bypass esea's ac. this aint vac. steel in charge of 4 randoms would wreck those na team and their mediocre mm tactics. mind my saying those 4 randoms are much better than 4 randoms from na. etc. etc. shit teams, shit tourney. only solid team is vp, perhaps fnatic(if flusha krimz and olof performs, which i highly doubt)
2014-12-04 16:16
settle down steel fanboi. lets not forget his time in EU accomplishing absolutely nothing and finally going back to play with dazed and getting carried by swag and skadoodle. Plus NA teams know how to play against scrimmy pug strats, thats all they play against there
2014-12-04 16:28
fanboi i am. alas, he played with germans and brits. you know how that goes in this scene since ur a finn. irrelevant nations just stay there to get stomped, at least this dude had his name out there, also did pleasantly alright in css. also he kinda was the best guy on the team while he was still on eu, cosistently topfragging. was shitting other invitees and his mute teammates with a 150 ping. cheers.
2014-12-04 16:31
dont get me wrong hes not a bad player but hes not gonna make much of a difference. If teams are smart and veto d2 and inferno, maps that you can easily pug against them, they dont stand a chance
2014-12-04 16:39
well chrisj is back sooo. awkward. still. thats a shame.
2014-12-04 19:00
Well can agree with half of your saying, other half are nonsense... Mouz will get raped, with gob b who cant kill from behind 2stand in's = gg they will get raped in first game against c9 16-8, after fail on dh winter, the worst nightmare would be if they lose to mouzmix, wich will not happen
2014-12-04 16:26
i dunno much about the gob dude but still i think they have enough firepower to stomp teams with no solid tactics. if c9 continues to play like semphis is calling them they ll definitely get stomped. still its 50-50.
2014-12-04 16:32
steel is a good player, but you give him too much credit. I'll be surprised if he does anything noteworthy and doesn't just start flying off the handle and raging uncontrollably once they start to lose.
2014-12-04 17:42
big words my friend. you really think a pug is gonna beat VP or titan?
2014-12-04 16:17
vp unlikely. but titan? maybe. they were really bad after dreamhack stockholm, losing left and right, and then the kqly happened. ex6 started playing like he usually did. i dont think apex and kenny can carry them alone. also ex6 almost always chokes vs pug like tactics.

How is it a Dutch person is unable to get his VISA sorted before flying to America?
2014-12-04 15:51
Thats what happen when you dont get a visa in the right time.
2014-12-04 15:58
EU Citizens are not required to obtain visas to travel to US, never heard of Visa Waiver Program?
2014-12-04 16:08

You still need to do some paper work. It's easy but you need to think about it few weeks before. I guess Chris forgot about filling some papers or maybe his passport expired.
2014-12-04 17:03
The visa waiver program is almost instant and you could essentially do it at the airport 15 minutes before check-in opens. All it requires you to do is pay a small fee and fill in a form (online) and submit it.
2014-12-04 17:13
Thanks for telling me this, didnt know. Than i dont know what happened to Chris that he cant go ;(
2014-12-04 18:23
It took me somewhere around ten minutes to get it sorted out.
2014-12-04 17:21
Polish people sadly are, even though it's a super outdated policy and successive presidents have promised to work on the issue :(
2014-12-04 16:54
Not all EU citizens. It's dependent solely on country and has nothing to do with EU.

The Visa Waiver Program (VWP) enables citizens of participating countries to travel to the U.S. for tourism or business for 90 days or less without obtaining a U.S. visa. The Netherlands participate in the VWP, so most Dutch citizens do not need a visa to travel to the U.S. However, they will need their own individual Dutch passport. Children included in their parent's Dutch passport need a visa, or must get their own individual passport in order to travel without a visa. All current Dutch passports meet the VWP requirements. gg
