frozt in for Mythic

Carey "frozt" Kertenian has replaced Derek "desi" Branchen in Mythic's lineup, ESEA informed.

Mythic have been playing all their league matches with Derek "desi" Branchen lately after Abraham "abE" Fazli stepped down from the team, but as it turns out, he was in Mythic for a trial period only.

Today he has to say goodbye to the team, as he's being replaced by Carey "frozt" Kertenian, who recently stood in for Area51 and has previously played alongside Lucas "steel" Lopes in Fully Torqued.


desi's journey ended up being unsuccessful once again

frozt also has notable experience from outside of North America from the early days of CS:GO, when he was a part of Sam "DaZeD" Marine's Quantic Gaming.

Mythic's Alexander "LeX" Deily told ESEA.net that desi was cut due to not being "the proper fit" for the team, but stressed that it was by "no fault of is own".

"After a brief trial period with desi, we realized that he simply wasn't the proper fit for what we had envisioned for our starting five and moving into the future, through no fault of his own." Deily told ESEA.net.

"We wish him the best of luck in his future career and hope he finds a solid landing spot that fits his talent. We have decided to add Frozt to our lineup for the remainder of the ESEA League season, as well as other events and leagues. Carey is a player who is hungry for another shot and has time to dedicate to winning. As we finish out our season, we need someone with the desire and the heart to win and frozt has exactly that."

Mythic now have:

United States Alexander "LeX" Deily
United States Todd "anger" Williams
United States Carey "frozt" Kertenian
United States Erik "fl0m" Flom
Canada Warren "hades" Rettich

United States Abraham "abE" Fazli (backup)

As of now, Mythic are sitting at last place of FACEIT League with three losses from three matches, and at third in ESEA Invite with a 8-0-5 score, meaning they are standing on the edge of qualifying to the global finals.

gl frozt but desi is better with rifle anyway gl
2015-02-26 21:15
frozt brotha
2015-02-26 21:19
Frozt is a better clutcher and a great awper, but they really could have kicked any other player but desi and had a stronger team, must be some reason no top na team will pick up desi.
2015-02-26 21:19

Desi was not that good the last game they play
2015-02-26 21:21
Sick of these statements that all say the same shit, he's a good player and it's not him it's us bullshit, nobody gets rid of good players so instead of talking shite maybe tell us WHY you got rid of him.
2015-02-26 21:22
desi likes to igl, but hades is igl of mythic. My guess is they were conflicting in what to do any given round which caused a rift in the team
2015-02-26 21:32
LeX ... so shameless lol
2015-02-26 21:22
frozt is a really good player, i like that guy, a beast !
2015-02-26 21:26
so now you have 4 awpers on a team... 3 of which will be forced to rifle more often than not. I love mythic as they seem like a great group of people but I just can't see this working out for long.
2015-02-26 21:27
ez for me
2015-02-26 21:29
lol lex and hades smmh

Exactly. Could be a very good team IMO
2015-02-26 22:41
Plus they'd be able to double awp effectively, since adreN rivals Ska when they're both on fire, Ska still being better though.

Good team tbh!
2015-02-26 22:47
Yeah I see desi being the "successful" one here actually. Don't get me wrong frozt is a great player but you already have a dedicated awper and you drop one of the best riflers in NA for another awper? Sounds logical...
2015-02-26 22:49
Pretty much this, I guess they'd like to do double awp. Not actually sure how Frozt's rifles are at the moment, prett sure he's good with pistol though.
2015-02-26 23:06
I love Carey.
