innocent leaves MAD Lions active roster

After just 27 maps played for the team, the Polish player has departed MAD Lions' active lineup as they look to return to a Danish-speaking composition.

The news that was broken by Paweł "⁠innocent⁠" Mocek himself seems to support DBLTAP's report from earlier this month, which stated that the Spanish organization was exploring the option to add x6tence's Rasmus "⁠HooXi⁠" Nielsen and Ismail "⁠refrezh⁠" Ali to replace the Pole and the team's in-game leader Asger "⁠AcilioN⁠" Larsen.

While the organization hasn't officially commented on the speculated exit of AcilioN, innocent revealed that he is looking for new opportunities after a premature conclusion of his adventure with the Danish squad.

innocent was benched less than two months into his contract

innocent was added to the squad ahead of the new season as a replacement for the Astralis-bound Lucas "⁠Bubzkji⁠" Andersen, but the Pole's time with the Danish side ends after only a month and a half, during which he averaged a 1.05 rating, as MAD Lions continued to struggle and they exited four out of five tournaments early.

The 26-year-old expressed his feelings in a Twitlonger, stating that he thinks that joining the team was still the correct decision as he was "able to compete against better teams and prove myself a bit more", adding that he is not looking to take a break: "I don't have burnout symptoms. I am still putting all my time into CS, watching demos/shadow.gg of players and teams, I spend a lot of time on DM and trying to play every FPL game possible."

"If you are interested in my services and you want to do everything in your power to be as good as possible, hit me up and I am sure we can find a common ground" innocent said as he looks for new a new challenge during a busy transfer period.

MAD Lions' lineup now is:

Denmark Rasmus "⁠sjuush⁠" Beck
Denmark Frederik "⁠acoR⁠" Gyldstrand
Denmark Fredrik "⁠roeJ⁠" Jørgensen
Denmark Asger "⁠AcilioN⁠" Larsen

Brazil Luis "⁠peacemaker⁠" Tadeu (coach)

Poland Paweł "⁠innocent⁠" Mocek (benched)

It all went downhill since Hunden left, they shouldve just kept him...
2020-09-26 13:12
According to an interview of hunden done by thorin Hunden chose to leave himself due to personal and motivational struggles. So it seems to not have been like they kicked him. And if they had "kept him", he would've been banned now anyways :P
2020-09-26 13:47
If they kept HUNDEN it would be near enough impossible that HUNDEN would've been banned by the ESIC because he was banned for usage of the coaching in-game camera bug, The only way he would of been banned if they kept him is if he was moved to coach and they dropped peacemaker. Other then that he wouldn't of been banned for abusing a Coaching tool bug.

Everyone knew he was nothing more than a stand-in until they found a proper (and danish) replacement.
2020-09-26 13:12
Still, he managed to pull out a decent performance. I hope he will bounce back into an international roster instead of staying in the mediocre polish scene.

Polish scene has potential for a good team with Stomp, Innocent and Kei all leaving their teams
2020-09-26 13:13
KEi only left his team for a while, but I don't know anything about STOMP, honestly I think that innocent will go to some EU team. Complexity as a stand-in could be cool, but they took already NaTo.
2020-09-26 14:15
STOMP LUL? Id take mhL anyday and mix him with Innocent, MICHU, kEI and dycha
2020-09-26 15:03
STOMP played well consistently in a much worse polish team. MhL is good but STOMP would be a much cheaper buyout for a decent enough AWPER
2020-09-26 17:55
they wasted his time
2020-09-26 13:13
Expexted, that s sad for him. He will have propably pause now. Anyway he deserve top 20 EU team, cause he is good team player, and he is good at shooting

Ruskie can't read in english I see With Spirit I agree tho, solid tier 2 team with tier 1 potential but definitely not 'top' Poland 1 major Russia 0 Also I think you have no right to say 'poorland' when your average salary is 43000 rubles = 473 EUR source : themoscowtimes.com/2019/04/10/half-of-ru..

2020-09-26 23:20
Signing a single international player was a dumb decision in the first place and it was bound to go wrong. No offence to innocent, but it was just a stupid setup. Not sure how they came to the conclusion that switching from Danish to English would be easy. It's also stupid to have a coach that doesn't understand the language that the players speak. I hope he wasn't behind the whole international thing for his own benefits...
2020-09-27 11:34
Are coaches allowed to speak mid round?
2020-09-28 21:43
Pretty sure they are during online matches. But normally on LAN, no.
