kyuubii joins Sprout as sixth member

The 16-year-old is the first player in Germany to be accepted to one of the country's elite sports schools, where he will have equal support in furthering his career as the school's olympic athletes.

Sprout have signed Can "⁠kyuubii⁠" Kamber to their roster as a sixth player, with the young German talent also set to attend Tannenbusch Gymnasium, an elite school of sports in Germany, where he has been accepted as their first esports athlete.

At Tannenbusch, kyuubii will be offered the chance to complete his education while being offered the same level of support as the school's Olympic sports athletes, including adjusted lessons, exams to accommodate for team practice and competitions, and "digital learning opportunities and individual assistance," according to a press release.

kyuubii is the first German esports player to be admitted to an elite sports school

"Today is a very special day for us as we facilitate an extraordinary approach of talent promotion," Sprout manager Daniel Paulus said in a statement. "We are aiming to allow kyuubii sound education and growth in esports.

"Both of our coaches, Niclas Krumhorn and Jan Westerheide, are going to work with him intensively to teach him tactical knowledge, necessary communication skills, and team play. He will also regularly attend training and theory lessons and join us for bootcamps to give him all the insights he needs. "

For now, the team intend to offer kyuubii the opportunity to experience playing on a competitive team by substituting him in for players that are prevented from playing due to "health issues or private affairs," as well as offer him the ability to play in the German championship.

The 16-year-old's long-term prospects depend on his development through the program, with the combined efforts between the school and Sprout offering him the opportunity to simultaneously pursue a professional CS:GO career while furthering his education.

With their sixth player, Sprout's roster looks as follows:

Germany Timo "⁠Spiidi⁠" Richter
Germany Denis "⁠denis⁠" Howell
Germany Josef "⁠faveN⁠" Baumann
Germany Marko "⁠kressy⁠" Đorđević
Germany Fritz "⁠slaxz-⁠" Dietrich

Germany Can "⁠kyuubii⁠" Kamber (substitute)

Germany Niclas "⁠enkay J⁠" Krumhorn (coach)

and you need to educate yourself Nine-tailed foxes appear in Chinese folklore, literature, and mythology, in which, depending on the tale can be a good or a bad omen. The motif of nine-tailed foxes from Chinese culture were eventually transmitted and introduced to the Japanese and Korean cultures.

saying denis is shit isnt based on stats (okay you can still statistically say it but nvm). it is based on comparing his "performance" in the DACH scene and international ... as soon as it gets international you see that his skill ceiling is reached playing in the 99Liga and ESL Meisterschaft and always has been. (and before you want to say im a stat looker only have a look at #165)

Its just reality sprout has very little chance... EU is way too stacked for them. And they sold their best players multiple times. I think they are training him to replace somebody and not doing 6 man roster.
2021-03-16 14:15
well they dont really utilize kyuubii to win events with him, they just want to give him experience, playing german ESL meisterschaft with him and in 1-2 years they probably sell him to BIG or finally kick denis

After Valve pretty much said no 6 man rosters will be allowed, teams need to stop doing this. Before it was interesting and exciting, but Valve doesn't want that in their game. Not a good move $$$ wise unless they plan on replacing someone in the active roster with him eventually.

Also here, good luck Can "⁠kyuubii⁠" Kamber. You are one of those great German talents that have grown in the last couple of years that I'm very proud of. I'm super happy for you, Sprout and the right direction provided by the organization and the elite schools of sports like Tannenbusch. Esports has grown so much and generated such a big industry that it is important to educate the youngsters (and the uneducated) that this is a sport profession like any other. Young professionals, but also young people in general need to know how to balance this sport with their real life duties and parents, elder people, but also outsiders of the industry who are not that familiar with esports need to know about the possibilities that can arise for huge talents like kyuubii and how to support them. #growsprout
