minet announces return
Former mTw member Oliver "minet" Minet has told HLTV.org that he has started playing CS:GO with a view to returning to competitive gaming.
Oliver "minet" Minet announced his retirement from gaming in November 2011 after a two-year spell with the legendary mTw team, who brought him in from Spirit of Amiga to replace Muhamed "MJE" Eid.
In mTw, minet quickly rose to prominence, and among his achievements with the team are winning DreamHack Summer 2010, finishing second at Dreamhack Winter 2009 and 2010, and placing third at the IEM V World Championship.
minet hopes for a successful return
After more than three years without any news from him, minet has dragged his name back into the limelight by revealing that he is determined to play actively again and that he is already practicing with players like Jack "wazorN" Henriksen and Morten "suraNga" Jensen.
"When CS:GO came out, I did not really like the game," Minet told HLTV.org. "I got some offers back then, but I decided to focus on school and some hobbies of mine.
"In the meantime, my longtime friend suranga, with whom I had the pleasure of travelling a lot during 1.6, asked me a few times to reconsider and to come back with him.
"Now, two years later, I have decided to give it a chance because I miss the competition and the scene. I have a lot of spare time right now, so I will be focused and dedicated to this comeback.
"I feel the game has evolved and is much better, and even though I am lacking hours when compared to the top players, I think my chances of a successful comeback are pretty good.
"I have already found a bunch of lads to play with, three of whom I have played alongside in the past and were very important throughout my 1.6 career - suraNga, Stofqaz & wazorN. They all taught me a great deal. Last, but not least, zecer, also a familiar face, especially for me.
"I am really looking forward to playing a lot of CS again and having fun with it. Remember to come watch my stream, I plan on running it as much as possible!"
