mousesports have announced that they have completed the signing of Christian "loWel" Garcia Antoran from PENTA Sports.
The Spanish player will step into the shoes of Tomáš "oskar" Šťastný, who was removed from mousesports' starting lineup at the start of the week due to personal issues.
In a statement, mousesports CEO Cengiz Tüylü explained that the Czech talent, who had joined the team less than two months ago, revealed that he could not commit to the squad's practice and tournament schedule for the upcoming month. Moreover, Tüylü stated that oskar "is not at a point in his life where he wants to focus on the game full time."
loWel will replace oskar on mousesports' active roster
On Tuesday, mousesports fielded Johannes "nex" Maget as a stand-in, but with the 24-year-old, who is the team's backup player, struggling with a wrist injury, the German organisation was forced to look elsewhere for a permanent solution.
Christian "loWel" Garcia Antoran spent the last seven months playing for PENTA Sports, his first challenge abroad, after representing some of the strongest Spanish sides for several years. During his time with the German team, his biggest achievement was winning ESL Meisterschaft Summer.
"The stage I am about to embark is a dream come true, as it allows me to compete in the most important tournaments - which is what I have always wanted, and in which I will do everything I can to be the best," he told mousesports' website.
"I want to thank PENTA Sports and my former teammates for giving me the chance to develop in the european scene and mousesports for putting their trust in me."
loWel will make his first appearance for mousesports in just two weeks' time as the team will travel to Atlanta to compete in ELEAGUE, where they will face Cloud9, FaZe and Immortals in the group stage.
