mousesports through to semi-finals in Budapest as day one reaches end

mousesports are the first team to have secured a semi-final spot at the V4 Future Sports Festival after finishing at the summit of Group A.

The European mixture, who won last year's edition with two of their current players, began their defense of the title with victories over E-RIVALS and Tricked to top Group A and advance to the last-four stage, which will be played only on Sunday.

Nicolai "HUNDEN" Petersen's charges, who pushed mousesports to their limit in a long match in which the third map went to double overtime, had begun the day by taking down last year's losing finalists, Virtus.pro, in a two-map series, showing great composure on Mirage as they recovered from a 5-13 deficit - the first of three sensational comebacks that they delivered throughout the day.

mousesports were made to work hard by Tricked

The biggest surprise of this first day was the fact that MIBR had to go the full distance to beat local side GAMERZONE, who inflicted the Brazilians' 14th LAN defeat on Inferno in the 16 games played over the last six months.

NiP, who could be attending their final event with Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund, will open the action on Thursday against Polish side adwokacik, headlined by ex-AGO duo Kacper "kaper" Słoma and Grzegorz "SZPERO" Dziamałek. After that, Virtus.pro will fight for their tournament lives against E-RIVALS, with Conor "conoR" McCool looking to build on his impressive showing against mousesports (1.35 rating).

Below you can find the schedule for Thursday:

11:00 Sweden NiP vs. Poland adwokacik
14:00 Poland Virtus.pro vs. Czech Republic E-RIVALS
17:00 Brazil MIBR vs. Sweden NiP / Poland adwokacik winner
20:00 Hungary GAMERZONE vs. Sweden NiP / Poland adwokacik loser

it is a pun on the Spanish "Vamos" which means something like "let's go!". Vamos + mouz = vamouz

I'm not 100% sure if this is the reason, but "Vamos!" is like "Let's go!" in portuguese/spanish. Vamouz seems to be a shorter/cooler way to say Vamo Mouz
