CLG sign ex-mouseSpaz

Striker
January 17th, 2015 00:00

ex-mouseSpaz team has moved to Counter Logic Gaming, the organization has announced on the CLGaming.net website.

Earlier this week it was announced that James "hazed" Cobb's team has left mouseSpaz, who cited a move to a new organization as the reason.

Counter Logic Gaming's owner, George "HotShotGG" Georgallidis, stated in an interview that his organization will be expanding to CS:GO very soon, and now that move is confirmed.


FNS & co. will represent CLG from now on

The lineup made headlines when they qualified for MLG X Games Aspen from the first North American qualifier, beating both iBUYPOWER and Torqued 2-0 on their way to one of their first international LANs.

"I'm very thrilled to finally reveal that me and my team will be playing for the CLG CSGO division. We have been practicing hard as a team and individuals and for our hard work to finally be noticed is an unbeliveable feeling." Tarik "tarik" Celik told CLGaming.net

"2015 will be a huge year for Counter-strike and I can promise that we will do our best to prove our worth to CLG fans. Your constant support is a vital part of our success, thank you all!"

Counter Logic Gaming's lineup looks as follows:

United States Stephen "reltuC" Cutler
Canada Pujan "FNS" Mehta
United States James "hazed" Cobb
United States Tarik "tarik" Celik
United States Peter "ptr" Gurney

CLG's debut under the new organization will be next weekend's $50,000 MLG X Games Aspen, and only a week afterwards they will take part in the $15,000 tournament at Clutch Con.

2015-01-17 00:07
I think this team will not last long. One of their players went afk during a fucking pro match and grabbed something to eat. Never saw such thing at any EU match lol.
2015-01-17 00:03
what about jOELZ
2015-01-17 00:06
haha, minced meat ftw!
2015-01-17 00:13
He wasnt afk for that.
2015-01-17 00:14
well he was afk since they started the game and he wasn't there.
2015-01-17 01:26

2015-01-17 15:06
U just jelly that u dont know his cereals haha
2015-01-17 00:30
more detail plz, who? when?
2015-01-17 00:45
Tarik in one of their recent matches. I think it was against SapphireKelowna. Not sure anymore. Because it was such an easy game for them they started trolling and when he died he went afk to grab something to eat. But when the new round started he wasnt back yet. It was his personal stream. The caster on the official stream thought he is getting ddosed lol.

well right now they aint at the top. I know Tarik got talent the only poor thing would be if some of the big names snaps some of their players when they start to get things going and then were back at the standard NA scene.

Isn't this the team that bashed their own sponsor publicly (I believe it was netcodeguides) by creating posts on ESEA\HLTV because they couldn't properly operate servers or something to that degree while hosting a cs:go tournament? This might not seem like a big deal, but now they're representing a major team.
2015-01-17 00:52
that was to FaceIt, not ncg.
2015-01-17 00:54
"We are celebrating the announcement of our partnership with FACEIT" netcodeguides.com/blog/netcodeguides-fac.. This is just as bad. It doesn't matter how poorly run the tournament is you don't bash sponsors\partners.
2015-01-17 00:59
congrats ! you guys deserved it
2015-01-17 00:53
TSM Torqued EG ex-IBP book it
2015-01-17 00:57
Well... Torqued and iBP might not be going anywhere due to the new evidence in the the matchfixing scandal.
2015-01-17 01:11
You mean said "evidence" that is old as hell and has nothing that really supports it other then a ex girlfriend, coupled with some shady text, with the addition of personal motives beyond csgo matchfixing. This is far from a scandal. Until something solid is confirmed and proof is found. Because people forget that this is the internet and people make shit up for drama and headlines. Plus the only people making this bigger then it is, are the people that lost those said skins they betted. Shit the ex mousespaz players are involved in this to. An they were just picked up by an org.
2015-01-17 01:34
So CSGL's investigation finding people betting max value against themselves with 9 smurfs accounts isnt evidence enough ? ...

Should have stayed in the game... never expected at the beginning of CSGO that I would see Team Liquid, CLG, EG, possibly TSM and all these other big orgs stepping into CS. Incredibly good news... congrats to everyone involved.

CS GO is growing fast and every big name in NA want a spot now. What a pity all american teams suck dicks atm. These guys will get a salary for being top 30 world and winning against throwing noobs. HF not qualifying for next major.

what if they push 4 NA spots for Majors? Who wants to watch myXMG or Flipsid3 in a Major except of the few danish and swedish fanboys, if this games wants to grow they should pick up more international spots and this NEWS proves they need to open more NA slots. maybe one SA and one AUS slot too.

Alright, then they won't make it out from groupstage. Sometimes they save a spot for Africa too, but who want to watch a bunch of noobs get 16-0 except a few fanboys as you said. People who like the game watch the best teams, right now they're not.
2015-01-17 14:30
Congrats trash got trash
2015-01-17 08:19
Congrats. I'm happy that big american organisations from LoL and SC2 is starting to pick up teams in CSGO. Liquid, CLG, Cloud9. Hopefully EG decides to pick up a CS team again as well. Edit: just now read about their involement in the betting scandal...
