MSL leaves CPH Wolves

Copenhagen Wolves have announced that Mathias "MSL" Lauridsen has been released from his contract with immediate effect.

According to a statement issued by CPH Wolves, Mathias "⁠MSL⁠" Lauridsen's contract has been bought out by an unspecified organisation, who met the player's release clause.

This is the second blow dealt to CPH Wolves in the space of the days after the Danish team parted ways with Michael "⁠Friis⁠" Jørgensen earlier in the month over personal reasons.


MSL set to join another team 

In recent matches, CPH Wolves have been playing with Rasmus "⁠SandeN⁠" Sanden as a ringer, but the latest news means that the team is now on the lookout for two new players just a fortnight before Copenhagen Games.

As we came to an agreement concerning the release of Friis it became apparent that changes had to be made within the team. While working internally on various solutions we were approached by another organization expressing their desire to acquire the services of Mathias “MSL” Lauridsen for the upcoming events.
We entered negotiations and quickly came to a solution that both parties were happy with. This effectively means that this day forward Mathias “MSL” Lauridsen has been bought out of his contract with Copenhagen Wolves.”

"As we came to an agreement concerning the release of Friis it became apparent that changes had to be made within the team," CPH Wolves' manager Frederik Byskov said in a statement.

"We entered negotiations and quickly came to a solution that both parties were happy with. This effectively means that this day forward Mathias “MSL” Lauridsen has been bought out of his contract with Copenhagen Wolves."

Copenhagen Wolves are now left with the following trio:

Denmark Nicolai "⁠HUNDEN⁠" Petersen
Denmark Asger "⁠AcilioN⁠" Larsen
Denmark Danni "⁠smF⁠" Dyg

Why would he go to tsm? TSM have the 5 best danish players, there's really no reason for them to get MSL.

I could think of a few. For example TSM have always gone for the best players in denmark instead of the best kind of players they need. With MSL as a support and remove device/dupreeh to have a more all-round team instead of aim-heavy.

Could also work I guess. Don't think the Danish scene likes Nico though.
2015-03-16 19:18
And why the f*** would they kick device/duphree for a player such as MSL.. That is just retardet, sorry for being aggresive, but MSL is faaaaaaaaar from those players level.
2015-03-16 19:56
-karrigan +MSL
2015-03-16 20:02
there is no way device is leaving since they have just adapted their playstyle to the meta of having dedicated awper wich is device
2015-03-16 20:27
1 reply
they are not really having a dedicated awper, IMO, cajunb also used it sometimes, even thoe device didnt have one, so I think its more about the spots, they are covering.
2015-03-16 22:43
I disagree, they need to replace device and karrigan for them to even come close to winning anything in the near future.
2015-03-16 20:29
If he does, I will probably kill myself
2015-03-16 19:36
-smf ,- acilion too ,let bot hunden play alone since he can 360noscope everyone alone

he will replace fetish i think. Fetish cant commit to CS in a serious way anymore....other Dignitas are still young, they want to play more, want to win....
2015-03-16 18:35
Either going to reason or dignitas. No way TSM would get rid of anyone they have.

2015-03-16 19:17
I disappointed, that CPH team were easily better than dignitas, and now they're lost... If he joins dignitas, then instead of whom??? Kjaerbye, Pimp and aizy were good enough to not be kicked, Nico is their main AWPer, and FeTiSh is their IGL. Reason? It's pretty strange, potential-wise CPH had much better team than Reason...

western wolves is gonna be back Hopefully
2015-03-16 19:49
I don't think other than Dignitas or TSM has the money to buy anyone out (in the Danish scene at least). Making a change in TSM wouldn't be so surprising since thos boys are really young and they didn't win anything yet, i'm sure they are very eager to do anything necessary. They might have realised finally that they don't need Xyp9x besides the other 3 carries, and that he actually can't really play the supportive role that is required from him. On the other hand Dignitas was clearly meant to be the 2nd best Danish team after the TSM fuzz, and they even failed to qualify to Katowice, so they might want to mix it up a little. Just my 2 cents

Hmm Friis leaves then MSL get's bailed out, rumors about Zonic starting a team, Alex (ave) returning, Trace streaming alongside with Minet, Zonic saying on stream that he "maybe" has a team atleast he said "Maybe who knows" when i ask'd on stream something really sketchy maybe Roccat comming in over i know they worked with mTw previously.... Maybe mTw or SK, Frag Executors or Epsilon something really fishy will come up soon lol
