Official: Bymas replaces woxic on mousesports active roster
The Turkish star leaves mousesports' active roster in the wake of the team's horrid showing at ESL One Cologne, where the European side were eliminated in last place after a three-map loss to Natus Vincere and a blowout at the hands of MAD Lions while woxic turned up in poor form in the latter match.
The early exit at the first tournament after the player break followed a string of abysmal results from before the off-season, which saw mousesports fail to make it past the opening stages in four consecutive outings, including the first two Regional Major Ranking events, ESL One: Road to Rio and cs_summit 6.
It's unclear what the future holds for woxic, who had been part of the German organization's starting roster ever since it underwent a big overhaul in early 2019 with the signings of the 21-year-old AWPer, Finn "karrigan" Andersen, and David "frozen" Čerňanský.
His spot in mousesports' lineup will be taken by Bymas after the Lithuanian was revealed as the team's sixth "developmental" player at the beginning of the new season. Meanwhile, Chris "chrisJ" de Jong should transition back into his former role of the primary AWPer.
The new constellation will have less than a week to prepare for their official debut, which will take place in ESL Pro League Season 12 Europe, set to start with the group stage on September 1.
