North bench JUGi to make way for MSL

North have removed Jakob "JUGi" Hansen from the starting five as Mathias "MSL" Lauridsen will AWP for the Danish squad.

North released a video earlier today unveiling the organization's new kit, with the final scene showing MSL wearing the team's new outfit, although no accompanying information was given. Amid speculation, the Danish organization has now announced that it is benching AWPer JUGi to make way for the new signing.

JUGi has been moved to the bench

JUGi struggled to find good form ever since stepping into the North roster and ended his tenure on the team with a 1.01 LAN rating, the same he had in his last event with North when they won DreamHack Open Sevilla late last year. The 22-year-old will remain under contract with the Danish organization, which he joined in May of 2019 when he stepped into the shoes of former IGL and AWPer Casper "cadiaN" Møller, but will not be joining the team on the server.

MSL, who was one of the founding members of North in 2017, now returns to the starting lineup. He will do so taking over the big green, which he manned at his last Big Event with the organization, DreamHack Masters Stockholm 2018, where he was named MVP of the tournament.

The famed in-game leader will first be seen in action when North face off against Sprout at DreamHack Open Leipzig on January 24th, in their Group B opening match. The Danish squad will then be following their run in Germany with another DreamHack Open, in Anaheim, in late February.

"JUGi's departure from the starting roster is an unfortunate necessity to restore balance to a team that has been lacking strong and structured leadership."

- Graham "messioso" Pitt, Head of Esports Operations

North's starting five following the benching of JUGi is:

Denmark Philip "aizy" Aistrup
Denmark Markus "Kjaerbye" Kjærbye
Denmark Nicklas "gade" Gade
Denmark René "cajunb" Borg
Denmark Mathias "MSL" Lauridsen

Denmark Torbjørn "mithR" Nyborg (coach)

Better to have someone consistent, AWPing can be delicate to manage, if you are feeling off your flick goes somewhere else, I really think it's more important for AWPers to be consistent than any other roles. Those who manage that should be appreciated... like Device :P

World class my ass. Couoke good games where he looked insane against some tier 5 opponents.
2020-01-18 13:03
"easiest weapon in the game" If you think like that, your opinion is already irrelevant. A good awper is a crucial element for a team and if you don't have those skilled players, you're pretty much lost. Being an awper is a hard role because you have a lot of impact during a game (1st kill for example, or maps like Train), thus calling it the easiest weapon in the game is just foolish.

S1mple has a reddit post saying the weapon is the easiest to get kills with. And by it being the most expensive weapon used in pro play its logical it would be the weapon best at getting kills use ur brain.
2020-01-18 07:37
So because s1mple says it, it's true...? Smooya says it too, but does that mean it's true? It might kill an opponent with one bullet and all of that, clicking on the guy isn't the hardest part. It's about getting yourself into situations where you can get frags. To allow you to have that impact... You can have the best aim in the world, but still get overrun by a team that works together and actually does not allow you to get these frags. And if they play like that, being an awper is a pain in the ass, regardless of the one-bullet-one-kill, cuz you won't even be able to put it to use if you're not a good awper.

That applies to any player in any spot. All roles are difficult in tier 1 CS. The gun statistically is the easiest to use and is SUPPOSED to have the most impact because teams play around it due to its strength. The kick was deserved
2020-01-18 08:24
That's where I agree with you: statistically. Kick was deserved indeed, never intended to argue about that. Kind of a shame that JUGi hasn't been performing. 1,5-2 years back he was on his prime and it was lovely to watch him. I hope to see him back in that shape...

Gade COULD improve hes young. Jugi has been declining for a year. Cajun needs to go, yes but at least he can play passive roles, has experience, and can provide info and make fakes/baits for the team Jugi has the biggest fragging role and misses way too many shots or dies in stupid ways or does nothing the entire round
2020-01-18 07:40
Msl might not be the best awper an is mainly here for igl, but jugi litrally missed enemys right next to him, not moving + the team often played around him and for him and even with that and his role he managed a negative rating
2020-01-17 17:13
Jugi has big potential, they should kicked Cajunb in my opinion.

That doesn't needlessly mean much. As I stated before, they don't have Valde anymore and the only standing-out player is Kjaerbye. If I would match North against Mad Lions, I would point the Lions as favourites.

Let me say this. North vs Mad Lions now is a 50:50 match. But i see you give the favor to lions because recently bubzkji and roej had a lot of confidence, also sjuush and acor are stepping up. But, i still believe if aizy and kjaerbye can step up more better and gade is going to hit some crisp shots they can't stop north with MSL as the big brain.

I believe more in Hunden than MSL :-) Hunden is underappreciated cause of his fragging skills, which are honestly abyssmal and it is a big detrement to have such a player in T1 competition, where everyone has to frag at least to some degree. However in tactical a psychological approach, Hunden is excellent. The ceiling of Bubzkji, acor and sjuush are higher than of the North players. Not sure if Aizy can improve, CajunB deifnitely not, Gade has a big question mark. They also have high motivation, hunger, energy and the form is inquestionable. If they would play now, I believe Mad Lions definitely win. Later? Yeah, can be 50/50, who knows?
2020-01-18 11:07
i guess aizy is giving away his salary to the org just to stay in the team for some more

I was sitting here wondering who it would be. Thinking its going to be CajunB or Gade, since Jugi is a way better awper than cajunb and MSL is a way better IGL than Gade.

if you aim to be just ''rather good'' then sticking to this team will be fine because ''rather good'' is all they will be. but i would say a big org like north with the resources and capacity should aim to be better than that.

Watch his demos ... He is beast i know than and better then msl at aim etc but only when someone create space for him . They need someone WHO focus not on himself ( gra pod siebie w ) but north need someone who Play for others ( support ) He is baiter style like Jame . I liked him very much but if you gonna watch his Pov you gonna understand what i mean .
2020-01-17 15:41
Because an awper needs to be consistant, decent with a rifle, and hit almost all easy shots. Jugi does none of the three
2020-01-17 17:34
He's an awper, uses the most expensive gun in the game as is inconsistent as fuck with it. Also heard that he doesn't really like putting in the effort/hours, parties quite a lot.

Hes the main reason that team is better tho, that and hundens leadership which MSL has always been regarded as the better IGL.

He's been underperforming for a long time, so it's probably not a bad move to bench him. When he shows up, he's very skilled, but you can't only show up 25% of the time if you want to play at a high level.

People seem to forget Jugi did best under good IGLs. Why? Because they know how to enable the stars, and also provide motivation and expectations which compels teammates to improve. Which is very relevant because Jugi definitely seems to have motivation issues seen by his lack of improvement and thoughtless plays at times Jugi was never great he was great at being set up, hes solid mechanically but falls behind in positioning, impact, and decision making. All things that IGLs can conduct so stars can focus on duels.
2020-01-18 07:55
JUGI definitely suffered in confidence and pressure this is a good move for both parties. I still fail to see what they see in gade apart from very aesthetically pleasing crosshair movement.
