MAD Lions sign MICHU

The Pole is back on a European team since leaving for Envy in early 2020.

MAD Lions have announced that they are bringing on Michał "⁠MICHU⁠" Müller to cover one of the two open spots on the roster that were left vacant when star AWPer Volodymyr "⁠Woro2k⁠" Veletniuk and rifler Pere "⁠sausol⁠" Solsona Saumell were moved to the bench.

The Polish rifler will mark his return to a European lineup after spending nearly two years in North American teams, first with Envy — who also had a European core at times — in 2020 and then with Evil Geniuses in 2021.

MICHU will start for MAD Lions in 2022

MICHU will therefore join up with Thomas "⁠TMB⁠" Bundsbæk, Johannes "⁠b0RUP⁠" Borup and Justinas "⁠jL⁠" Lekavicius as the international squad will try to better their peak 21st place in the world ranking, which they achieved with the previous roster in the final quarter of 2021.

The 25-year-old, who boasts a 1.08 career average rating, will be looking to bounce back from his time in Evil Geniuses, where roster instability and poor results by the team affected his individual performances as he tallied a 0.99 rating during his time there, a career-first dating all the way back to his emergence as a teenager in the mid 2010s.

This signing will also see the reunion of MICHU with his former coach and countryman Jakub "⁠kuben⁠" Gurczynski, as both were together in Virtus.pro and Envy before parting ways in 2021.

MAD Lions are now:

Denmark Thomas "⁠TMB⁠" Bundsbæk
Denmark Johannes "⁠b0RUP⁠" Borup
Lithuania Justinas "⁠jL⁠" Lekavicius
Poland Michał "⁠MICHU⁠" Müller

Poland Jakub "⁠kuben⁠" Gurczynski (coach)

Ukraine Volodymyr "⁠Woro2k⁠" Veletniuk (benched)
Spain Pere "⁠sausol⁠" Solsona Saumell (benched)

This team seems dead tbh., MICHU is an overrated player if you ask me, and overall I don't think this MAD Lions roster will find success, they needed a rebuild but kicking Woro2k was a huge mistake, he and TMB should be the center of the rebuild. I'm really sad tbh.

he was 2nd highest rated player on EG EG was already doomed to disband his rating was also considerably impacted by the fact that EG literally lost 75% of their matches also, hes mechanically good, so he should definitely be a good player in t2/3
