mousesports expand roster to six players with Bymas
Reports came out last week placing Bymas outside of FaZe as the European combine would be looking to add former North rifler Markus "Kjaerbye" Kjærbye to their ranks. mousesports have now announced the addition of the Lithuanian youngster as their sixth player in the squad.
Bymas got his first big break with FaZe in late May, when Olof "olofmeister" Kajbjer stepped down from the team. The 16-year-old played with the European squad until the break hit in July, ending up with a 0.93 rating as a member of the lineup that got third place at DreamHack Masters Spring and BLAST Premier Spring Europe Finals before taking a dive at cs_summit 6 with an 11th place finish.
After a strong end to 2019, mousesports struggled when CS moved online due to the coronavirus pandemic earlier this year, with the exception of the first tournament of the online period, ESL Pro League Season 11, which they ended in second place.
Allan "Rejin" Petersen's men then went out in 13-14th and 13-16th place in ESL One: Road to Rio and DreamHack Masters Spring, respectively, before failing to qualify for the BLAST Premier Finals with a 5-6th place at BLAST Showdown, going on to end the season with another 13-16th place finish at cs_summit 6 Europe.
"We experienced how sudden circumstances can change this year," read a tweet from mousesports under Bymas' announcement. "Thus we decided to broaden our roster and bring in a 6th player to be prepared. We are excited that we can present a huge talent as Bymas to fill that role, who fits into our philosphy of developing young players."
