mixwell leaves Counter-Strike

Oscar "⁠mixwell⁠" Cañellas has formally announced that he has taken a step back from competitive Counter-Strike to pursue a career in VALORANT.

The 24-year-old has been unveiled as the first member and team captain of G2's VALORANT division, returning to the organisation he briefly represented in 2018 on a trial basis.

mixwell will play for G2 again, this time in VALORANT

mixwell had been without a team since November, when he found himself out in the cold as his Cloud9 teammates Damian "⁠daps⁠" Steele, Kenneth "⁠koosta⁠" Suen and Timothy "⁠autimatic⁠" Ta and signed for Gen.G. In February, he began his search for a new team after being released by the North American organisation but quickly turned his attention to Riot Games' tactical shooter.

"I can only thank everyone who works in CSGO and all those who follow me," he told HLTV.org. "It has been an adventure full of ups and downs, but I am happy to have experienced it all."

After years of playing for Spanish teams without much success internationally, mixwell made his breakthrough in 2016 when he was picked up by OpTic. He helped the North American side to victory in ELEAGUE Season 2 and to a runner-up finish at the ECS Season 2 Finals before the team fell apart in the aftermath of Peter "⁠stanislaw⁠" Jarguz's departure to Liquid.

The Spaniard stayed on with OpTic and helped to put together an international roster, but the project was binned after just six months following a series of mixed results.

He tried out for G2 in March 2018 as Richard "⁠shox⁠" Papillon was moved to the bench and the team experimented with playing under Nathan "⁠NBK-⁠" Schmitt, but he was allowed to explore his options after just two months. Later that year, after helping North to win the DreamHack Open stop in Valencia, he was announced as the headline name on the new Movistar Riders roster, an ambitious team with some of the best players in Spain.

The Spanish team were unable to achieve their goals, however, and mixwell found himself back in North America as he reunited with daps in Cloud9. He attended four LAN events during his short tenure with the team, the last of which was the BLAST Pro Series stop in Copenhagen.

24 is not young for Esports
2020-06-16 17:56
Yes, it is. Had he actually been playing at a competetive level for his entire career so far, he could have had at least 4 more years of competetive play. Since he's mostly been playing lower levels and is largely unproven, then yes, he is a bit too old to start over.
2020-06-16 18:17
Riot Invitational last place more money than Valve major first place.
2020-06-16 18:39
Yeah and of course they need to pay their bills. It's just a shame that the CS scene can't support their own talent.
2020-06-16 18:46
Or the winners like NiP and Astralis would intentionally lose 100% if Richard Lewis didn't exist. $50,000 per person - coach% - org% - 62% Danish tax (lol). Might as well cut a deal with the NA or CIS team and not pay the Denmark government.
2020-06-16 19:09
Literally no Valorant tournament has comparable price pool atm, what the fuck are you smoking?
2020-06-16 19:24
Had to waste a minute to Google for you. Because we all know it'll be better than playing CSGO DOTA $34,330,068 >>> COD $2,000,000 LoL $1,000,000 >>> CSGO $1,000,000 (LOL) even Rainbow6 $290,000 Why only a few pros have switched to making more money play COD makes sense given the top teams are not in NA but to not play Valorant unless you're in a contract just makes you stupid and not care about your future grandchildren.
2020-06-16 19:43
wait for the 3 majors and world champs to be announced next year for millions and watch the CS players swarm over!

*NA pro scene here fixed it for you
2020-06-17 00:40
lol all of the pros that went to Valorant never progressed past tier 3
2020-06-17 01:05
orgless did pretty well IMO, they couldve been the next big thing in NA also swole patrol had a good run before disbanding as well
2020-06-17 07:51
Orgless and swole will only remain in t2-3 even though valorant didnt cames out. Just accept the fact that NACS is trash except for EG, Liquid and GenG
2020-06-20 03:22
i wouldnt even say current EG and current Liquid are good lol and GenG looks inconsistent as well
2020-06-20 10:04
cs is doing as well as ever lol almost only NA players are jumping aboard the hype train to make a quick buck because no org wants to invest in a joke NA scene same story with mixwell, he had the chance, he did not perform, he probably wanted to re-join movistar riders but they are doing decent as well so they said "nahh thx" and now nobody wants him so lets get that valorant money
2020-06-17 07:50
It's just a beginning of the end, if a player like mixwell couldnt find an org for such a long time, that's also sad for this game. Did not perform? Delusional germ, how typical
2020-06-17 09:27
checked his ratings. they are not as bad as i thought but still not amazing either. its not the beginning of the end at all because one EU player switches to valorant. cs is far from dead with all the young talents we have in the scene now. what makes you think he couldnt find an org? i'm fairly sure he did not search or did not get fitting offers. my guess is he wanted to re-join movistar riders. movistar probably did not want him because they are performing better without him. the money he gets with g2 is probably better anyway.

Why? for paying their players? Imagine hating a game that pays players that you're fans of for leaving for a better paying game. Last CSGO major $100k per person after Danish taxes + org take = like $20k LOL 100% of CSGO players would leave for Valorant if there weren't contracts.

2020-06-16 22:16
Well, these retired cs:go players are there likely to bring experience to the new people that will join the scene, and will probably step out of the "main team" after 6months-1year. It's good for them, considering they can make some money still being active (while in cs they would make very few), and can get to other positions later on as coachs/analysts. But honestly, I don't expect much from these players themselves as players anymore.

will HLTV make a post about every washed-up pro who is making the move to valorant? you guys are in for it then. these melodramatic tweets serve no other purpose than just to make everyone jerk off the said player and it's not like they couldn't switch back to csgo as easily in the future
2020-06-16 17:54
And if they do make the switch back, we'll report on it. That's what we do. Should we pretend that these guys were nobodies? That's just disrespectful and a disservice to our readers.

2020-06-16 18:05
he's literally won a few valorant tournaments already man. He's also been playing valorant constantly and seems to be really enjoying it so I doubt that the reason he moved is that he couldn't find a team in CS.

Trying to find a competition where everyone sucks to collect some bucks... This doesn't mean Valorant is a better game.. Only that there aren't any pro strategic teams yet, and he, and his new team, can be the few of the first to come up with strategic plays, adding it to his natural fps game sense (cs), will, probably, allow them to win. At least at the beginning. This is the real reason why a lot of former CS players are switching to Valorant, because in truth, the game is worse. Captain out

He left for Valorant and joined a GOD tier org so you know... He's trash, washed up pro, garabge af, never was good enough for CS, etc... It's called Denial but, you know... More players bound to leave as there's only so much space in CSGO.
2020-06-17 05:00
And they won’t find any success in Valorant because that game doesn’t have space for washed up NA pros either

That game will die in less than 2 years and he will be back crawling on his knees
2020-06-17 09:14
exactly
2020-06-18 00:38
I think we will see quite many of thos mid/unsuccessful players leave whenever there is a new game out. Some of them come back once they notice they will be mid/unsuccessful in the new game, too. some might stay. some even might find more sucess (i mean thats the reason they leave right?)
2020-06-17 09:17
Best of luck to you m1x, you truly needed a change of airs and I´m so happy that you found a game that suits you well and makes you feel motivated again From now on G2 Valorant has a new follower here
2020-06-17 09:39
Uninstall crap games. Yes

2020-06-18 01:57
valorant will be dead within a year, these scrubs will have no career after that.
2020-06-18 05:00
Another tier 3 semi pro. Not surprisd
2020-06-18 05:52
When ScreaM finally announce the quit?
2020-06-18 12:36
So basically all the burnouts, all the pros who can't get in the scene anymore because their personal game is rubbish and cannot rely their incomes solely on streaming have found a new market they can try and milk a bit before they would actually have to take on a real job. Great stuff!

dude you can't play valorant full time.. It's fucking impossible.. I really enjoyeed it at the start.. but now I can't even touch the game because it's so fucking boring and repetitive.. AND IT JUST CAME OUT LOL.. HOW ARE YOU GONNA PLAY THIS FOR OVER A FKN YEAR O_O
2020-06-21 02:02
Cause you play 4 free, he play for like 30k a month xDD
2020-06-21 12:50
True But still Valorant suck balls and will be way harder for him to be in a top 20 team than it was in CSGO since game is far easier than CSGO therefore competition will be way harder. Im in pity of those CSGO "pros" leaving CSGO for something that easier and casual friendly. In a year or two they will be in shock how irrelevant theyll be unlike CSGO.

Wont be missed.

Can someone tell me why people think Valorant is going anywhere? Seems like a bad free 2 play from 10 years ago.

Have you eveer played TTT in Garrys' mod? The feel of movement and shooting in Valorant reminds me a lot of that. It is not a good game I was really disappointed with Riot I expected something much better. And maps are terrible too.
