chrisJ released by MOUZ
The Dutch AWPer is released from the team after being with the organisation since 2013.
The news comes not long after it was announced that Robin "ropz" Kool would be departing for FaZe, and that Ádám "torzsi" Torzsás was being promoted from the academy team. The team also recently parted ways with coach Torbjørn "mithR" Nyborg.
chrisJ leaves having been a part of multiple iterations of the MOUZ roster, winning eight trophies with the organisation. The highlights include an ESL Pro League Season 10 victory, where they took down then world number one team Astralis in the semi-finals, and an impressive 1.29 rated +55 KD-diff performance in a run to 2nd place at ESL One Belo Horizonte 2018. He represented the organisation at 10 Majors across his career.
Most recently, he was benched at the end of 2020 after virtually 9 straight months of sub-1.00 HLTV rated events. Since his benching he briefly trialled for FunPlus Phoenix, but ultimately did not sign for the team, and stood in for MOUZ at DreamHack Open November in place of Aurimas "Bymas" Pipiras.
This leaves one spot still open on the active MOUZ roster, with the German organisation reportedly in advanced talks with French legend Nathan "NBK-" Schmitt to fill that vacancy.
MOUZ are now:
