Winterfox signs Mythic team

North American team Mythic, whose core were the previous Luminosity lineup, have now been signed by Winterfox, an organisation known for its previous League of Legends team.

Mythic, a lineup based in North America which fields two Swedish players in Jacob "pyth" Mourujärvi and Jonatan "Devilwalk" Lundberg, ran into tough times this past summer when the team lost their Luminosity sponsorship following an apparent issue with having two signed teams at once ahead of ESL One Cologne.

The team then encountered further difficulties with the loss of Peter "ptr" Gurney who announced his departure from the team, and turned to previous eLevate player David "Xp3" Garrido to fill out its new roster.


anger and pyth find a new home in Winterfox

The team stuck together and continued to play in the highest echelons of North American Counter-Strike, with spots in both CEVO-P Season 8 and ESL ESEA Pro League Season 2.

The latest, and most successful, break came when Mythic managed to defeat Shahzeb "ShahZaM" Khan's Conquest in order to qualify for DreamHack Open Stockholm, which the team are currently already on-site for.

The team have now received a boost ahead of their qualification bid on this Thursday for the next CS:GO major via being signed by Winterfox, an organisation mostly known for its League of Legends team who were once known as Evil Geniuses but then rebranded due to new LCS branding rules.

Winterfox's CS:GO lineup is:

Sweden Jacob "pyth" Mourujärvi
United States Alexander "LeX" Deily
Sweden Jonatan "Devilwalk" Lundberg
United States Todd "anger" Williams
France David "Xp3" Garrido 

The team are currently deployed in Sweden as they will be fighting in Group C of DreamHack Open Stockholm, the official offline qualifier for the next major at DreamHack Open Cluj.

Also, they should probably replace either LeX or Devilwalk tbh :(
2015-09-21 23:17
and xp3
2015-09-21 23:25
Is he good? Never really seen him play but this team needs more firepower.
2015-09-21 23:46
its a menh player,i just think that pyth and anger deserver a better team.i really think that especially lex should be cut of the team and get other player.nice to see a m8 who also thinks that pyth is underrated and good player :)
2015-09-21 23:52
this team sucks, period. Without pyth they're not even top 6 NA so stop caring about this shit and, tbh, anger is a shitty asshole, just ask steel about it...
2015-10-23 15:58
Well lex won't leave his own team.
2015-09-21 23:25
Yeah I've heard that. He just has to stepping up then I guess

The team has 2 igl's and devilwalk who was a support and a coach. They need to kick either devilwalk or lex, im sure xp3 can do good with awp if he doesn't have to also igl.
2015-09-22 04:36
Agreed
2015-09-22 08:06

people who don't follow all esport games are obviously ignorant. I heard of the most org before i started following the scene, and that means SK, NIP, Fnatic and such, but i never heard of this so called tier 1 org, what's your problem buddy? i don't have the right to have an opinion?

2015-09-21 23:37
no its not, they split up from EG, completely separate orgs with different owners and sponsors
2015-09-22 00:27
ok well i was just surprised reading the EG name and thinking wtf dude why would a big org like that pick up those guys^^ but whatever if thats not the case then^^
2015-09-22 01:08
they are owned by goodgame agency, they own EG,Alliance,Elements and Winterfox. (CLG not on paper.)

2015-09-21 23:46
Please stop giving Devilwalk sponsorship money. You are only encouraging him.

No value for sponsors as they all do social media in Brazilian just like LG. Holding them all back bigtime from great sponsorships.

Anger sucks so bad right now. Back in 2013, he was pretty good but now he's just plain bad.
2015-09-22 04:56
dont like it, 2 igl, both not known for their fragging and anger who struggles with the fragging load. Team needs pyth/lex or anger to turn into a 1.10 rating stud to be successful. At they very least they need pyth to perform well and lex to contribute enough with the awp.
2015-09-22 07:42
