MNA unveil European lineup featuring oskarish

The Turkish organization has signed players from different European countries with a long-term goal of reaching the top 30 in the world rankings.

MNA is a new European roster that will be led by former AGO and Illuminar player Oskar "⁠oskarish⁠" Stenborowski, who has been unveiled as the final signing of the team.

Nordic trio Hector "⁠HECTOz⁠" Jensen, Rasmus "⁠SandeN⁠" Sanden, and Haakon "⁠Radifaction⁠" Tholo have already been announced over the last two weeks, alongside the 20-year-old Romanian Raul "⁠Blytz⁠" Gligor who is the fifth and least-known player on the lineup.

oskarish has a new organization after leaving AGO in September

The team will start their journey by competing in ESEA Advanced, where the organization's previous, fully-Turkish lineup, finished with a 7W-9L record in Season 35. "We are the first Turkish esports organization that has a completely foreign roster. We are here to build a legacy," MNA said in a statement to HLTV.org about the signing.

"These players are the ones that our staff has picked between around 70 possible candidates," the statement reads, with the organization noting that an adaptation process of a few months will be needed in order to get the roster to work together.

"We will certainly have an adaptation period for months and players need time to know their teammates and capabilities in this time. We will be also supporting them with two coaches, two analysts and a psychological counseling firm. " The first coach is already known, Caner "⁠Tole⁠" Töle who is the only member remaining from the team's previous lineup.

MNA will be a test for oskarish as an in-game leader, who was deemed surplus by AGO last year, as well as veteran player SandeN who was last seen playing alongside Tomáš "⁠oskar⁠" Šťastný and Ioann "⁠Edward⁠" Sukhariev in selectah. On the other hand, HECTOz and Radifaction will be looking to leave a good impression, after parting ways with x6tence and Secret, respectively.

Alongside the five players and the coach, MNA still have Cankut "⁠CANKU7⁠" Çelik contracted to the team, whose future is uncertain.

MNA are now:

Denmark Hector "⁠HECTOz⁠" Jensen
Denmark Rasmus "⁠SandeN⁠" Sanden
Norway Haakon "⁠Radifaction⁠" Tholo
Romania Raul "⁠Blytz⁠" Gligor
Poland Oskar "⁠oskarish⁠" Stenborowski

Turkey Caner "⁠Tole⁠" Töle (coach)
Turkey Cankut "⁠CANKU7⁠" Çelik (backup)

IT all depends on the contracts details. They cant reduce his salary if its not mentioned in contract.
2021-01-07 19:04

That's what I'm saying. I'm sure there a cause in his contract, as it's highly unlikely they'd pay him the same amount to warm the bench as they would for him to play.

vanity is IGling AWPer most valueble type of palyer for NA right now. Liquid desperatly need one. Obviosuly chaos needed one. Even EG with someone like cadian or 2016 fallen could improve their firepower by huge ammount. Also even teams like North could use someone like vanity, and i am pretty sure there are plenty of other teams in the world that need solid IGL and AWPer at the same time.

he did not directly refuse sprout - there was a financial issue, i think sprout wasnt able to pay his salary to the UK or something like that movistar riders i would have refused as well, the team is a wreck right now he was also close to joining north but instead north decided for lekro in the last minute also i believe he was linked with cloud9 but then w0xic became available (not 100% sure on that one)
