mousesports invited to IEM Sydney

The new mousesports squad have secured an invite to IEM Sydney, the organizers have announced.

The European side are the sixth team invited to the Australian tournament, joining the likes of Liquid, MIBR, and FaZe at the $250,000 competition.

The news comes less than 24 hours following the organization's announcement of their new lineup, which saw Finn "karrigan" Andersen, Özgür "woxic" Eker, and David "frozen" Čerňanský join up with Robin "ropz" Kool and Chris "chrisJ" de Jong.

mouz's new roster has secured an invitation to IEM Sydney

2019 will mark the second year in a row for the German organization's attendance at IEM Sydney, as their previous roster competed at 2018's event and placed third-fourth following a loss to Astralis in the semi-finals.

IEM Sydney will run from April 30 to May 5, with the tournament's playoffs being held at the Qudos Arena on the last three days.

With mousesports' addition, the team list looks as follows:

Australia Renegades
Brazil MIBR
United States Liquid
United States Swole Patrol
Other Invite #7
Other Invite #9
Oceania Oceania qualifier
Oceania AU/NZ national champion
Europe FaZe
Sweden NiP
Europe mousesports
Germany BIG
Other Invite #8
Asia Greater China qualifier
Asia Southeast Asia qualifier
Asia East Asia qualifier

Three more teams are yet to receive direct invites, while the remaining five will come from qualifiers in Asia and Oceania. Swole Patrol's slot is likely to go to eUnited, who have since acquired the majority of the roster who qualified for the event back in February.

What a waste of an invite. For a team that has literally done nothing.... if they need to prove it they should be doing it in a qualifier. To give them an invite when we’ve not even seen one map is pathetic.

Well IEM/ESL don't rlly care about the scene and giving chances to upcoming orgs. They want tier1 players, and a new-look mouz at their debut tournament will obviously get them more views than a solid tier2 team on the rise
2019-03-17 16:52

You don’t deserve a spot just because you are a new roster lol. In that case shouldn’t G2 be invited because they are unveiling AmaNEK?
2019-03-17 21:42
I think there are far more deserving teams to be getting an invite then mouz, but yea like you said it brings in more views and that’s all they care about... not the quality of cs. Look at the WESG tourney. That was all about viewers and it was beyond shit lol
2019-03-17 21:43

He’s an idiot, anyone with a working brain knows they should’ve been in a qualifier. He says because it would be boring to watch. Like what an idiot

karrigan has won more than what the others have together
2019-03-16 01:08
Living in the past is what holds so many teams back for way too long. Look at neo for example. Good guy, he was great, hes simply not anymore. It doesnt matter what you won 3 or 5 years ago if you simply drop your form. Botigan has his last chance in this weird team and this undeserved invite is just a big help for him, cause i dont see them doing anything relevant in qualifiers. But maybe i am just wrong and they are new astralis....

What I always do to listen to them that knows most, try listening to what Thorin say on the video. youtube.com/watch?v=SFoUzeQZjO4 what many do not know is that karrigan was actually the man who developed all players at FAZE, we have to see what is happening, i hope the best for them.
