denis seeks new opportunities

August 9th, 2017 11:12

After departing from mousesports, Denis "denis" Howell has revealed his intention to keep playing professionally.

The 22-year-old player has been a part of mousesports' active roster since May 2015, but he has now departed from the team to open the way for Martin "STYKO" Styk to step in.

Among others, Denis "denis" Howell' most notable achievements with mouz were 3-4th placements in both ESL Pro League Season 4 Finals and ELEAGUE Season 1. Before being replaced by the Slovakian player, denis' last LAN presence was at the PGL Major Krakow, where his former team failed to make it through the group stage.

denis is on the lookout for new opportunities

Yesterday, the player that once represented the likes of Planetkey, PENTA, and mousesports, hinted on Twitter that he would keep playing by saying that the community "will see [him] again". Contacted by HLTV.org, denis expressed his goals for the next few days:

"My plan is to have a small rest. I will go on holidays, I will focus on improving myself in many different aspects in CS and also everything else to have the perfect conditions. I plan to start as soon as possible again though, and I am looking for offers."

HLTV.org has also learned that denis is no longer connected with his former organisation by any contract, meaning that he is a free agent.

2017-08-09 15:41
Agreed. for years he and spiidi were the weakest players. Just as he starts to find his groove he gets kicked. Quite sad, really. Mouz will be a stronger team skill-wise... but they are going to suck for a few months before they start functioning well as a team.

big -legija +denis would be huge improvement and you can -kakafu +legija or kakafu to analyst idk

Australia WaxNWayne 
I agree. But i think that they won't drop legija now. He had soke good performences at the major ao maybe he will flourish just like tabsen.

afaik he was good cuz th jump spot thing.I mean he was most benefited player from this bug
2017-08-09 11:18

 | 
Australia WaxNWayne 
Perhaps. But i remember he had a good performence on train and i don't think there are any spots to use the exploit on train. Regardless. I agree that they should -legija +denis but i don't think they will.

Yeah probably the chance got even smaller with major results

Imho they could also drop keev and move legija to the awp role. Imho he is a better awp than rifler and keev has been very inconsistent.

Turkey CamelotzZz 
This could workout aswell I think they should try it
2017-08-09 11:25
They could even -keev, because in penta Denis was 2nd Awp and he's prety good with it.
2017-08-09 14:24

Yeah they can just buy awp when things aren't working like VP

They agreed not to use it but big still benefited from it and also didnt said big not played well I even cheered for them at some point.
2017-08-09 17:26
he is good without too, people underestimated him but look cobblestone against immortals he had around 30 or 29 frags.

He step up when needed yeah but i dont think he will keep it up tbh

These friendship things ruining csgo scene shox was stuck with smithzz for a long time also now gob stuck with legija.You can be friend outside but keeping low player in team is a definitely bad decision tbh

But you still think csgo is all about stats
2017-08-09 11:31

 | 
Turkey CamelotzZz 
no if you look to denis' stats.He was only good at major and idk if he will keep it up but he is impactful player thats why I am saying they should add denis and being support not an excuse for not getting kills and losing side without any damage.
2017-08-09 11:36
K now i understand your point :)

BIG will not kick Legija. Legija will have to say that he wants to leave Big to make room for a better player and They will not put him in as a Coach or Analyst for sure he is not that kind of person. In Faze he was only a Hype Coach and was kicked therefore
