MSL benched as North sign cadiaN; gade returns

North have confirmed the signing of Casper "cadiaN" Møller, who will take over as AWP'er and in-game leader from Mathias "MSL" Lauridsen, who as of now resides on the bench. As a part of the shuffle, Nicklas "gade" Gade will return to the team after being loaned out to OpTic.

The decision to bench MSL comes after the 23-year-old has led the squad since it was picked up by Danish football club FC Copenhagen and production company Nordisk Film under the North moniker in early 2017.

The oft-criticised in-game leader recently took up the AWP after the benching of Daniel "mertz" Mertz, and led his team to a relieving victory at DreamHack Masters Stockholm, where he was also crowned the HLTV.org and Betway MVP for his impactful sniper play. The triumph in the Swedish capital came after a long period of inconsistency, but the rush of victory wouldn't last long, as North failed to get past the New Challengers Stage at the FACEIT Major only a few days later.

cadiaN will return to Denmark to lead North

MSL himself had the following to say about his departure from North:

A four year long journey has ended. It started out with aizy leaving for FaZe and me and Kjaerbye building a new team of talents which surprisingly got in top-6 in the world. Since then, it has been a very interesting journey with a lot of ups and downs[...] Looking back, I’m very proud of what I have accomplished, being top-5 in average in 2017. Over the 4 years I have won two big titles and four small ones and I’m very happy that I could finish my time in North by giving the fans that stuck with us a very big title. I want to thank all the teammates I have had through the time and thank North for the time. I will come back stronger!

Coming in to replace MSL will be cadiaN, who spent the last year in the US, leading Rogue to climb the rankings and eventually come in second at the Americas Minor to qualify for the FACEIT Major, where the team did well in spite of being eliminated in the New Challengers Stage.

The 23-year-old captain impressed fans and analysts with his aggressive individual plays as well as his apparent preparations before Rogue's matches against better-ranked opponents such as Astralis and North, a combination of talents that also impressed the Copenhagen-based team, who have been on the lookout for a dedicated AWPer since the departure of mertz:

I am glad to welcome cadiaN to the team today. We evaluated the team composition after the Major and decided that we needed a new leadership. With Casper, we get a leader with a different approach to the game and meta. I expect that the duo of cadiaN and ave [North coach] will be able to develop our game even further, says Jonas "whimp" Svendsen, Director of Esports at North.

gade’s loan spell in OpTic is now over

North have further announced the return of gade, whom they loaned out to OpTic after the 23-year-old rifler's tenure in the now-defunct North Academy squad. gade will replace the team's most recent acquisition, the stand-in Nikolaj "niko" Kristensen, who was brought in on a swap loan deal with Heroic for the aforementioned mertz.

According to a press release from North, niko will return to his old team, but the 20-year-old has apparently been cut from Heroic's ESEA roster.

North's first showing with cadiaN and gade will be tonight, as the team plays its opening match in the ECS Season 6 Challenger Cup against Epsilon. The new lineup for the Copenhagen-based team looks as follows:

Denmark Markus "Kjaerbye" Kjærbye
Denmark Valdemar "valde" Bjørn Vangså
Denmark Philip "aizy" Aistrup
Denmark Nicklas "gade" Gade
Denmark Casper "cadiaN" Møller

Niko called the shots for faze after they were 0-2 down in new legends stage of the last major. This surely has undermined karrigan's leadership in the roster. Imagine a situation in the future where Karrigan makes a mid round call but Niko disagrees. Who will the other members listen to? Bombing out of ESL one new york (which they won last year) makes matters even worse. Faze might need a new IGL, as rigid as MSL soon enough.
2018-09-29 08:23
they should just kick karrigan and get someone good
2018-09-29 17:22
My point is not that MSL is a much better choice, my point is that pretty much any decent IGL would be better. Don’t think things would get WORSE with MSL

He hasn't got the mentality to lead a bunch of superstars. Karrigan might not be the best, but his general confidence is strong enough to lead a bunch of superstars. MSL would have trouble ordering someone like Niko around. If they hire him they need to reevaluate their entire CS:GO venture, and probably scrap it lacking competence in hiring staff.

I remember him being main standin for TSM, but then he slipped away. Luckily he had enough courage to join Rogue, moving to US at young age. The Major clip with him made me realize how tough this is for a young guy. Double bonus for him. A (probable) step up, and also going back home. He hit the jackpot :D

He had one good event while the team has been literally the most inconsistent in the entire "pro scene" since the creation of North. His good form, and a fluke does not justify the poor result the team has achieved compared to the firepower and talent they have.

2018-09-27 16:28
Snappi has been leading Optic to a bunch of loses lately. MSL is better than Snappi in my opinion. I'm also having a really hard time imagining that MSL would be picked up by Faze although he is a better fragger than Karrigan.

I agreed with you until you said MSL is a better fragger than karrigan. That's absolutely not true. MSL can awp better but karrigan is a miles better rifler. But I still think MSL would be better for FaZe as he would have some actual strats to use and a ton of power to play around with that karrigan doesn't know how to utilize properly.
2018-09-27 16:45
In any case, Faze will find a better player/bigger name than MSL. MSL gets a lot of undeserved hate from the fan community and I don't think Faze wants that.

Dominican Republic Okieant33 
I don't think FaZe cares about anything but winning trophies which is why the spent so much money on this roster. But karrigan just isn't cutting it. And to be honest, there really aren't too many IGLs available that they could realistically sign. So many of them are attached to their lineups. I think the best guy they could get that doesn't have loyalty to his org is Golden from c9.
2018-09-27 16:53
They might be able to get BnTeT. Tyloo isn't going further than they have already come and BnTeT speaks English really well as far as I know. I think that Golden will stay with C9 since he only just started that project
2018-09-27 17:03

Dominican Republic Okieant33 
BnTeT actually isn't a bad idea if in fact his English is good. I do remember him being interviewed during the major but I forget if his English was any good.
2018-09-27 17:08
Tyloo does most of their calls in english. I also saw bntet being interviewed at the major. His english is good, though he does have an accent.
2018-09-27 19:02
At this point, anyone would be > karrigan
2018-09-27 16:58
Let's be honest, FaZe with standins hasn't been fun work for any IGL, but regardless it's Karrigans responsibility to keep the torch burning and he didn't manage it, I bet he will be replaced soon from the looks of it. So then we'll have MSL and KARRIGAN available, both are better than Snappi... and Optic is NOT working at all, they run around like headless chickens.
2018-09-27 18:24
Actually karrigan doesnt know how to motivate or hype his team, he's been depressed himself since boston It was a pretty hard hit for them
2018-09-27 18:40
He knows how to do that, but I think he lost his spirit during the long period with standins, that's my guess.
2018-09-27 18:54

Maybe MSL is on his way to Faze Clan. North is partly owned by Danish soccer club F.C. Copenhagen, and this theoretical move would be right up their alley. They more or less always present a reasonable well thought of substitute signing before a big move/sell of one of their key players. Just a thought.
2018-09-27 17:08
im still thinking this was MSL decision and he will join faze . highly doubt north wanted to kick him after he finally stepped up and got a good role

lmao removing niko? he was the best player of the team MSL isn't that great but North won a big tournament and MSL was MVP, so what's the point of kicking him now?

What a crazy roller coaster for cadiaN. I hope he find his place in North. Particularly, I find this team one of the most dislikeable team in the scene. I don't know why.

Can you give me few reasons for you to have North as the most dislikeable team?Thanks in advance

Brazil davidzor 
Listen, I'm not saying they are the most dislikeable, but the impression given is. The reason is based on the feedback I see from the community (especially the danes). Also the numbers when they are playing, stuff like that. Even Anders don't seem to like them.

Well , majority of danish crowd support Astralis since they are #1 worldwide plus they have huge success.North is the solid #2 which still struggle to find a core that will stay longer than half a year together and actually acomplish something.I support them since day 1 when org created and ok , they got 3x DH Open trophies which is nothing special still better than nothing..Only Stockholm counts as solid trophy.I hope they can fix their inner problems later in the year

I agree with you, I do like this roster and I like to watch Valde, a very smart player. It is just that they don't seem to be popular in Denmark and around the Globe. For instance, when SK and Immortals was around brazilians were there to support both teams. With North I never saw something similar.

Why? K0nfig has to realize snappi isnt working. What other good IGLs are there if they want to succeed they'll at least try it.

World memyselfandI 
No. MSL hasn't got the pundit karrigan has. You need some to lead a bunch of star players. Faze needs someone like Fallen. A dude who has full respect within the scene, who doesn't have to fight for his place in the hierarchy. but is placed straight at the top.
2018-09-28 00:49
Big congratz to cadianN, so well deserved! GG WP MSL! It was a rough run this last year, but you really showed up all the haters in Stockholm. Crossed fingers that you still have a lot of CS trophies to lift in the future.
2018-09-28 00:16
Well well well, after all that long time when community begged to replace MSL for being useless they are doing now when he is at his "peak"? Kinda strange =D

Hopefully he will just be forgotten all about. His lack of humility is annoying as fuck. He always acts like someone cheated him off being a top 5 team, and that he is not to blame.
