mouz sign PENTA trio

MIRAA
May 4th, 2015 18:27

mousesports have announced that they have revamped their squad by signing Johannes "nex" Maget, Denis "denis" Howell and Timo "Spiidi" Richter from PENTA Sports.

The news will certainly come as a surprise to many as mousesports had just cemented their position as the strongest team in Germany by winning the ESL Spring Championship following a 2-1 victory over KILLERFISH 2-1 in the grand final of the tournament.

Two weeks before, mouz had also given a good account of themselves at the ESEA global finals, in Dallas, where they came in fourth place following wins against Cloud9 and CLG and defeats to Virtus.pro and fnatic.

nex returns to mouz 

Still, mouz have decided for a major overhaul as Johannes "tabseN" Wodarz is nowhere to be seen, while Nikola "LEGIJA" Ninić and Nikola "NiKo" Kovač have both been benched.

Replacing them will be Johannes "nex" Maget, who had already played for mouz in late 2012, when the team attended the ESWC finals, Denis "denis" Howell and Timo "Spiidi" Richter, with the trio coming from PENTA Sports.

"I am very happy to compete for the best German club again in my career and I'm looking forward to our new mission," Maget said in a statement.

"The well experienced Fatih "gob b" Dayik has a big impact on the entire team and mouz demonstrated their new strength in Dallas lately.

"Our new lineup is very ambitious and we will work hard to fulfill not only our own, but also our fan's expectations.

"It's time to lead a German Counter-Strike team back to the top. I would like to thank PENTA for their support during my time with them and also my new team mousesports."

These changes mean that mouz will once again communicate in German, but at the expense of losing perhaps their most individually talented player, NiKo, who had many times been the team's top fragger, including in the EPS final, in which he amassed over 80 frags.

The new mouz line-up will be making its first appearance at 20:00, against PENTA Sports, in ESL ESEA Pro League.

The German team now have:

Netherlands Chris "chrisJ" de Jong
Turkey Fatih "gob b" Dayik
Germany Johannes "nex" Maget
Germany Denis "denis" Howell
Germany Timo "Spiidi" Richter

Serbia Nikola "LEGIJA" Ninić (backup)
Bosnia and Herzegovina Nikola "NiKo" Kovač (backup)

all of those 3 are merely weaker, plus gob can call in german/denglish now rather then english due to niko, which will boost their game. Also, is mouz confirmed at the next major now???

2015-05-04 18:29
They want to attend the major. They cant kick Chrisj for anyone because he is the awper. They cant kick gobB because its their IGL. so they have to kick those 3.
2015-05-04 18:33
Wait will mouz attend a major because of the 3 Penta trio or did i get your info wrong ?
2015-05-04 18:36
A team needs a core of 3 players who attended the major, and the 3 penta players did so mouz will get penta's spot.
2015-05-04 18:38
Oh i see, ty for elaborating me ^^
2015-05-04 18:39
Wow, that's messed up. Cunny mousesports.
2015-05-05 04:23
It's the roster that gets the spot, not the team name. If PENTA lost 3 players to random other teams they still wouldn't go, because they need 3 of the core players that attended to still be together.
2015-05-05 14:49
Yes, but PENTA didn't "loose" those players, mouz lured them away. And now Orga, which would get exposition and earn some money is fucked, and the other 2 players are fucked aswell.
2015-05-05 19:22
yep they will attend the next major.
2015-05-04 18:39
Ya i see:D tyty
2015-05-04 18:47
So you do what NaVi done and make gob b the coach and he can ingame lead from the sidelines and let the other players play..
2015-05-04 18:36
There is no IGL like GobB and the Coach doesnt IGL all the time. He only gives suggestions. The IGL is the big man who calls. He couldnt do that as Coach.

Niko joining SK?
2015-05-04 18:40
Guess there were two big topics: 1) Gob wants to call in german 2) mouz wants to attend ESL One Cologne Plus, you guys wanted LEGIJA out. NiKo probably wouldn't have wanted to play without him anyway.
2015-05-04 18:40
can anyone explain for me why they cant attend esl cologne with niko?
2015-05-04 20:35
PENTA players had the spot because they came top8 last major. Now 3 Players from PENTA (60%) moved to mouz so they have the major spot for mouz
2015-05-04 21:10
yea i see, thanks bro!
2015-05-04 21:12
Also, Mouz is now Cologne qualified thanks to this move.

RIP PENTA RIP MOUZ RIP GERMANY and just when esl esea was about to start... very sad news
2015-05-04 18:43
I understand it now I know mouz can participate in major because of the 3 PENTA members but still, unacceptable to bench your star player. And I still don't get to see my dream "german" lineup of nex/niko/chrisJ/spiidi/gob (or any other IGL, gob is alright but not much more).
2015-05-04 18:43
dream german lineup that doesn't speak german? My dream german lineup is nex/spiidi/chrisJ/gob b/kennyS
2015-05-04 19:04
hench the quoation marks around "german", but they're all active in the german scene, kennyS is not.
2015-05-04 19:11
niko is active in the european scene. He doesn't speak german, no does he have german citizenship afaik.

hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahAHAHAHAHhahahahahaha
2015-05-04 18:43
LEGIJA played very bad anyway. I'm pretty sad for NiKolinho, he's a good fragger. But since they want to communicate in German, they kicked a shitload of players, including cadiaN and Maikelele. Now mouz can do damage. I think they're capable of destroying Titan, not to mention dignitas and all the smaller teams.
2015-05-04 18:43
chrisJ doesnt speak nor understand german, he just pretends so he doesnt get dropped.
2015-05-04 18:45

people will cally you retarded because omg why u kick IGL u silver u need IGL he can do 3/20 but he's still vital!!1 But honestly, -gob + niko and that team would have such firepower that a.. loose style IGL, the way Happy does it for Envy, would work imo. Maybe spiidi could do it, he was IGL for some PENTA games IIRC.
2015-05-04 18:51
*ofcourse no one of this counts if Niko literally doesnt speak english or german and can't understand anything without no.1 lowbrain baiter LEGIJA translating.

2015-05-04 18:48
Whoa. SK NiKO yaaaa tho
2015-05-04 18:48
Mouz investing all their savings and taking up loans to get to attend Cologne 500k$ major in their home country with a team that actually can win it. Nice.
2015-05-04 18:48
lets be real, they cant win it, but the team looks nice.
2015-05-04 18:49
honestly they can with this team.
2015-05-04 18:50
only if they find a way to get niko on the active roster, which I think is impossible cause they can't go to the major with the 3 PENTA boys. And I can't see them dropping chrisJ or gob (i'd drop gob but w/e, CANT DROP IGL OMG)
2015-05-04 18:55
troubley can also call i think but yea, if he weren't so autistic he good be an extremely good player.
2015-05-04 19:06
yeah troubley is a lost cause, shame the german scene has few IGL's that can always put at least some frags on the board, I don't see any top tier teams with IGL's fragging as little as gob.
2015-05-04 19:15
cologne isn't a major... :-)
2015-05-04 19:05
it will be
2015-05-04 19:05
maybe... but the fact is that it isn't a major at the moment. I think that this 60% rule for majors is not the main reason why mouz picked them.
2015-05-04 19:12
well, ok but these 250k $ come from the ESL.... esl-one.com/csgo/cologne-2015/ hltv.org/news/14297-esl-one-cologne-with.. confusing :)
2015-05-04 19:54
no niko no win
2015-05-04 18:48
One of the worst decisions I have ever seen in CS team...kick best player who carried you to the title last week
2015-05-04 18:49
Rip mouz
2015-05-04 18:49
LMFAO what a retarded move this was. Kick your strongest player just so you can attend the major. They only thing they needed to do was -tabseN and +nex and GG strong team. WTF MOUZ?? NIKO TO SK!!!
2015-05-04 18:50
this also had language reasons i believe. their english communication was fucking awful if you listened to them at last eps finals. now gob b can call in german.
2015-05-04 18:53
niko :(
2015-05-04 18:50
lol niko best player on team by far. well done
2015-05-04 18:50
Ahahahaha
2015-05-04 18:50
-niko???? wtf is this shit
2015-05-04 18:50
fk this is the mouz lineup i allways wanted to see :D and they also have a major slot now so it will be epic at cologne mayb niko learns german untill then and replace spiidi
2015-05-04 18:51
Wow nice. Good IGL good AWP now good riflers and communication.
2015-05-04 18:51
why -niko?
2015-05-04 18:51
this shit needs more tixo and roman :(
2015-05-04 18:51
nex still lan-unproven ?
2015-05-04 18:52
i doubt it since they 2 top8 endings at majors :D
2015-05-04 18:53
ya but that wasn't on account of nex's performance if I'm not mistaken
2015-05-04 18:54
hes carried penta to 2 eps titles and also had good performance on all majors imo hes lanproven :D
2015-05-04 18:56
penta never won the eps & they didnt even qualify for lan finals
2015-05-04 19:31
planetkey he means
2015-05-04 21:08

direct violation of mouz policy, maximum 2 top level players at any time in the line up.
2015-05-04 19:00
they dont have to qualify for it 3 of penta players now in mouz so pentas slot belongs to them & theyre automatically qualified
2015-05-04 19:33
wtf
2015-05-04 18:58
lol, why couldn't they keep niko in the roster and have legija as coach/translator?

2015-05-04 19:01
well thats how they played in the past though
2015-05-04 19:06

2015-05-04 19:00
well if he doesn't speak english, like some are claming, then I don't see how that's going to work out. Unless Niko/LEGIJA is a package deal.
2015-05-04 19:08
Well, you are from the Balkans arent you? I originally come from Macedonia, i speak all the balkan languages. Tell me, you have for sure played with someone that knows little to no english but still comprehends and can talk in-game.
2015-05-04 20:32
this is actually good, niko is probably better then all 5 of them but ye its easy to communicate like this so i hope it works out
2015-05-04 19:00
unexpected af
2015-05-04 19:02
By the way, can anyone answer if Niko at least speaks english? If he does it's worth it to call in english just for him imo, calling in german is overrated.

2015-05-04 19:12
Mouz who finally was a threat to any topteam out there. They looked really sharp with gob b's leadership, chrisJ's awp and specially Niko outstanding fraging. Poooor pooor kRYSTAL and Niko. Please: Niko, Maikelele, ScreaM, rain, foxj/kRYSTAL (depends which one of them who's the best awper). This, or switch Maikelele for some IGL.
2015-05-04 19:13
That SK team would have some serious language issues, but would be awesome to see.
2015-05-04 19:19
"fantasy team" made up of free agents :) SK could pay up for some english education haha.
2015-05-04 19:24
Why in the world would SK go get kRYSTAL as an awper, when they have Maikel?
2015-05-04 19:27
Because Maikelele suck with it (just my opinion). Both kRYSTAL and foxj are much better.
2015-05-04 19:45
imo. maikelele brings a different kind of play. Though I have NEVER been impressed with kRYSTAL in CS:GO. He was amazing in CS:S with AWP, but just not feeling it in CSGO
2015-05-04 20:15
Fucking strong Lineup would be chrisJ gob_b nex NiKo spiidi/denis I think -denis +spiidi It's not fair against NiKo.. srsly, he was the best player from the lineup.
2015-05-04 19:13
I agree with this one (with spidii)
2015-05-04 19:25

Rip Kristen [*]
2015-05-04 20:57
wasting a player like niko ...
2015-05-04 21:00
wtf how can they bench niko their by fr best player lol
2015-05-04 21:02
WTF niko is their best player and he is backup?? lmao
2015-05-04 21:04
What the fuck. Niko should be no.1 in Mouz's lineup. I totally don't get it
2015-05-04 21:04
Its so gob can call in german whereas niko doesnt speak german. easy for communication = -niko
2015-05-04 21:09
-gob +niko and it will be a good team
2015-05-04 21:09
good team with no IGL good logic, what to expect from hltv
2015-05-04 21:10
gob b can't make calls only kebabs my friend
2015-05-04 21:11
stop embarassing yourself gypsy
2015-05-04 21:12
well as you wish there is no point arguing with brainless peasant
2015-05-04 21:14
Now we can see mouz at next major!
2015-05-04 21:12
Why people hating ? is NIKO a very good player or what ? maybe -tabsen + Niko ?
2015-05-04 21:13
SAD.
2015-05-04 21:17
-gob b +niko as player and easy
2015-05-04 21:19
Why? They only needed to get rid of Legija.
2015-05-04 21:29
goodbye mouz GG
2015-05-04 21:29
Isn't Niko like their best player? Legija seemed okaish. Oh well i guess communication over firepower for now does make more sense.
2015-05-04 21:34
mouz: we cant win spot for major, but we could buy it
2015-05-04 21:38
lol let's bench our best player (Niko), retards lel
2015-05-04 21:58
If you can't beat 'em, buy 'em! That's how the saying goes, right? Kappa.
2015-05-04 22:00
+gob b as coach (i think it is not the way he leads the team, it's the way he prepares the team. Train tactics, timed goes, ..) +kRYSTAL as an igl (he can call shots as well -> dust2, LGB @Katowice2015 and is incredible with awp/rifle) +nex - awesome +niko - communication is important, but it's not a big problem (NiP's and some other PoV-streams seemed to me like they are calling pug-style and he is a way better than denis or spidii +chrisJ - (main awp) not sure about him. Inconsistent as fuck, but playing well lately +denis/spidii - both on the same level.. on paper troubley should be better, but he is hard to handle with
2015-05-04 22:01
I wouldnt even talk with them, if im on Nikola's place. He carried their wortless ass in 80% of matches since he joined, and they replaced him with nex or spiidi? Why? To attend major? I hope that Nikola will find better teammates, who will respect him.

The real problem was communication...as Niko does not speak english or german and yeah with Legija their translator is gone too...so maybe Niko is on the edge od transfering to another team?
2015-05-04 22:27
Heard some rumors that Na`Vi is intersted, but langauge is a big problem since south slavic and russian langage are totaly different.
2015-05-04 22:32
Lol trades for penta trips new penta wreckedouz on de cache lol
2015-05-04 22:11
-gob +niko in active lineup.. much stronk very guud
2015-05-04 22:23
OMG WTF LOL ROFL, bad change
2015-05-04 22:25
Weird move ...... I mean they showed some "good" results lately, so why change the damn roster ?? I would have dropped maybe one player and pick up nex, but 3players at once. They already had Spiidi in the lineup once and it didn't work out. On paper best team in Germany. Just how long will they stay together. Since their 1.6 days, mouz is really not "known", for having a "stable" roster!!!!
2015-05-04 22:41
Niko backup? wtf is this
2015-05-04 22:41
so fucking easy to handle this. -denis + NiKo -------------- chrisJ NiKo gob b nex Spiidi -------------- denis (backup) or: gob b as coach -------------- chrisJ NiKo nex denis Spiidi -------------- both better than Niko to bench
2015-05-04 22:48
MOUSESPORTS TOP10 kappa
2015-05-04 22:49
Niko backup? Wtf? Seriously mouz? Niko go left, now, u dont deserve fhis! They havent respect with you
2015-05-04 22:50
language issues, not skill.
2015-05-04 22:54
And gob b is better? Spiidi is team leader...

Spiidi never was a team leader, gob b speak english, Niko don`t speak english, 0 communication.
2015-05-04 23:05
Niko speak English but not Germany, Legija translate him from German to English or Serbian

"Spiidi is team leader..." Most retarded comment i ever read. gob b is top 4 Ingame leader, hes the reason mousesports are so T sided team. ANd now with comunnication, they can be also good as CT. I feel really sorry for Niko, and i will glad to see him there, but unforntelly he cant speak german, i would love to see -denis +niko
2015-05-04 23:20
you i like you. one of the few who actually get the move mouz did.
2015-05-04 23:55
gob b top 4 IGL, Looooooooooooooooooooooooooooool
2015-05-05 13:27
gob as a IGL as in brain is top1-2 wtf you talking about
2015-05-05 20:59
Spiidi is a team leader? are you retarded
2015-05-05 00:16
Fuck off i dont ask u
2015-05-05 01:07
i really think you should look into your comment Gob B is the igl for mous
2015-05-24 23:04
m8 cant you read, i replied to him, he fucking said that Spiidi is a team leader lmao
2015-05-27 18:28
Get Niko in SK.
2015-05-04 23:17
Really? Niko is "backup" gg mouse, gg...
2015-05-04 23:17
WTF Mous ? Its not for nothing if penta is RANKED 20 and you 8 / Only nex is valuable ! + GG to kick NiKo the guy who carried you team to rank 8 !
2015-05-04 23:25
Ridiculous :))) NIKO backup?!?!
2015-05-04 23:44
If you dickheads haven't noticed yet, everybody cries "-Legija, -Legija, -LEGIJA!!!", now that Legija is gone, noone can translate for Niko what's up ingame, because not only is there a problem with the German comms, but also with the English comms. Dang!
2015-05-05 00:00
i dont think this lineup is stronger then old penta.. just my personal opinion... but ok... we'll see... isnt denis an igl? they got gob for that job?

2015-05-05 00:22
Mouz changing players for the 10th time this year already.
2015-05-05 00:33
They did Krystal dirty.
2015-05-05 00:58
pity penta were fine with the other lineup
2015-05-05 01:02
worst choice mouz got
2015-05-05 01:18
and why gob b is still left in the lineup I don't know... and don't say because he is a great in game leader, look at fetish, he is donzo. They take 3 of Penta players and still lose immediately after, ahahahahahahahaha c'mon thats pretty hilarious dont you guys think???
2015-05-05 01:25
fetish was only good at ct tactics. If his T side strats were half as good as their CT ones fetish would probably still be on new dignitas or tsm. I doubt this roster change will be permanent. I feel like mouz only did this to qualify for the next major as they now have 3 players that reached quarters at katowice 2015.
2015-05-05 01:33
ahhh good point. Still, I have no faith in gob b =( and I used to LOOOVEEE mousesports when they had allu, chrisj and karrigan, man that was a great team. Perfect for upsets.
2015-05-05 02:02
i actually think you should have a little faith there. already the way gob improved since he started playing as a fullttimer is pretty huge. Lets wait and see :)
2015-05-05 08:43
-denis +niko

I think it's great news for niko, now he can join a even better team
2015-05-05 06:26
you guys are dumb af. niko is going to leave mouz the team already knows it. no point of scrimming and playing with him if hes going to leave in the next few days
2015-05-05 08:07
Its so funny how every1 tries bashing mouz for benching niko. We all know by now the incredible skill of niko. But without mouz picking him up, and offering him a stage to show himself, not even 15% here would ever really have taken notice of niko. He'll be picked up soon enough by a good team
2015-05-05 08:37
If chrisJ and gob b finds their old form, this lineup can to some real damage :)
2015-05-05 10:21
no NiKo, no party, gg Top30 confirmed
2015-05-05 10:44
noooooo why niko??
2015-05-05 11:43
because niko is very bad player , that's why
2015-05-05 16:27
-worst performer on Kinguin +NiKo please!
2015-05-06 00:38
omg denis past to mouz? i didnt know that. mouz will become more stronk now
2015-05-06 22:16
