sycrone: "There was a lot of interest for xertioN from a lot of top teams"

We spoke to MOUZ's head coach to get some insight into their promotion of Dorian "⁠xertioN⁠" Berman from their academy roster to replace Aurimas "⁠Bymas⁠" Pipiras.

Just ahead of the tournament break, MOUZ recorded their best result at a big event in over two years by making it to the playoffs of IEM Cologne. Although they suffered a 5-6th place exit there following a loss to Astralis, the team seemed to be on an upward trajectory, and made no changes during the off-season.

When tournament play resumed and the RMR open qualifiers got underway, MOUZ qualified on their first attempt ⁠— the same of which can't be said for a number of other notable names including the very Danes that MOUZ had lost to in Cologne, as well as Movistar Riders, who ultimately failed to advance to the RMR after losing Alvaro "⁠SunPayus⁠" Garcia to ENCE.

sycrone gave some detailed insight into what xertioN will bring to MOUZ

It came as a surprise then when MOUZ announced on Friday that they would promote xertioN from MOUZ NXT to replace Bymas, a move that even caught the young Lithuanian off-guard as he referred to it as "unexpected" on Twitter and said he was told of the change upon entering TeamSpeak for practice.

Why then, did MOUZ pull the trigger on the change after starting to improve on their results and after the off-season ended? What does xertioN bring to the team that Bymas didn't, and how do they plan to utilize him in their new lineup? These were all questions we put the way of MOUZ head coach Dennis "⁠sycrone⁠" Nielsen, who explained what went down in the MOUZ camp and gave some insight into positional shifts that the roster change will enable, such as David "⁠frozen⁠" Čerňanský transitioning into more of a hybrid lurk-support player.

You've swapped Bymas for xertioN. The move came a little of out nowhere it seems, even Bymas didn't expect it, so what prompted the change?

Every time you make a change, there's many factors to account for. I'll first maybe touch on why it seems so sudden. Over the player break, where most teams make transfers, there's a lot of talking behind the scenes about who's available, a lot of rumors, all these things, and that's really where most teams do their work. Since we had a late finish to Cologne and dexter wanted to go back home to Australia for the first time in one-and-a-half years, we ended up having a vacation that ended just three days before the first qualifier.

We agreed that it would be too risky to make changes before the RMR qualifiers, it's the most important event right, so we would not be making any changes just before then. Also over the break there was a lot of interest for xertioN from a lot of top teams, a lot of other teams within the top 15, and it didn't help that he played a lot of FPL in the period where he didn't practice as much with NXT, he just grinded FPL. He saw a lot of interest and we had to consider whether we saw him in our project. Also his contract was running out at some point, and we had to consider whether we want to keep him here on the main team, or if we want to let him go. Another factor was that the qualifier was so early after the break so we couldn't risk anything. I know for Bymas it sucks that in this way, he's locked to our roster because of the way Valve's rules are, but in a way he's also contracted and it's his work, right?

Bymas has been here for maybe two years, longer than I have, he's been working with the team and staff in the organization for longer than I've been here. I think just at this point we wanted to take it in a different direction. xertioN is not at all a one-to-one for Bymas, they're completely different players I would say. Bymas is way more calm, collected, calculated and a good clutch player, and xertioN is way more aggressive, very much a playmaker, which will allow us to swap around some roles within the team. That also prompted the change that, for example, frozen wanted to maybe become more of a lurk-support player, and with a guy like xertioN that was a possibility. A lot of factors, but also it wasn't easy.

Talking a little more on the timing of the change then, obviously it comes after you had a pretty good placement at Cologne, your best result with this roster to date with a 5-6th finish. It seemed like you were finally on an upward trajectory, so why now?

Yeah it's true if you look at it, Cologne was our best result so far, before then we had a lot of really lackluster results, and a lot of lost deciding best-of-three games. I think really why it happened now is that we realized a lot of things we're working on are the right things, and that progress has not just come randomly. A lot of the fundamentals we have down, a lot of the work we're doing with our sports psychologist, a lot of the way we're approaching games, the development of all of our players is really good, the group we have, and all of these things are adding up.

There's two things here. One thing is that over the player break, you don't have time to practice because you're all gone for vacation, and now since we qualified in the first RMR qualifier, we have four weeks before our first event. After EPL there will also be another week, maybe EPL playoffs, and then there will be the RMR. It actually gives you time to practice, and normally if there is ever a four-week gap in your CS schedule and calendar, it's because it's over the break. From that perspective the timing couldn't be more ideal because this is the only time you ever could make a swap and still have time to practice, unless you want to play through the whole player break, in which case you would also be playing against worse opponents.

I agree that Cologne is our best result so far with this team and it did seem like we're on an upwards trajectory, and we are, but we also believe that all the things we've worked on within the team, the fundamentals, the way we approach games, the way all of our players have developed just all around mentally, practically how we call, all of these things are at really strong positions, and we don't feel like we would be jeopardizing that too much.

We came to realize over the last six months that swapping around some roles would make sense, and in the big games we need more coordination and more playmaking ability, and we believe this is what is going to take us even further. Making a player change now, in a way it might be risky because you're swapping around positions, you're working with a new dynamic and stuff, but we believe ourselves to be stable enough right now that I wouldn't use it as an excuse for bad results coming up.

Bymas has been benched after two years as a part of MOUZ's active roster

Do you think the previous iteration of the roster had peaked?

No I don't, we could still have gone further with that roster. Top five or six at Cologne does not necessarily mean you are a top five team in the world. We have to be honest here, some of the other teams probably already had changes planned and thus were not performing to their full potential. Heroic had just made a player swap. It was a bit of a weird event in my opinion in that way. You also see now that Movistar Riders didn't qualify for the RMR, Astralis really struggled to make it happen and they even made it further than us [at Cologne].

I don't think we peaked and mostly that's because there's so many young players on the team, so much talent. frozen is still only 20, JDC, torzsi, and Bymas are also young and relatively new to the scene, so there's a lot of improvements still. I also wouldn't say Cologne was a lucky result, but it also wasn't like we thought okay, now we're a top five team in the world, we need to make playoffs every time. There's still a lot to work on, and we truthfully thought that there was something we could do with the player roles within the team, something to do with communication, more playmaking ability, someone who really has that killer instinct and drive when it comes to the bigger matches.

You talked about his roles a bit already, but why xertioN then? What is he bringing to the lineup?

He knows the way we work. He's been in NXT, he knows the way I work, he's good around torzsi, he's good around Jon. His skillset will speak for itself when you see it. Also, to really understand his skillset you have to be on the TeamSpeak with him, to know what he brings, it's a lot of energy, a lot of hype — he's a hype beast — and a lot of playmaking ability.

This is the third such promotion from the NXT roster, which you were originally the coach of. You're one of the only teams using their academy project in such an effective way and promoting players, along with NAVI, so how has it been having that project to draw new talent from?

Swapping the players has been easier than if you had to go out and look for a player. You already know what they bring to the table, negotiating is easier, obviously they are on a MOUZ NXT contract, and we still have to come to an agreement for a main team contract. They also have to accept that offer, written on paper. Clauses in the contracts help with this, but does not guarantee it will happen.

They know the culture, the way we work and the way we like to play and stuff. I wouldn't say that consistently pulling up players is something that we're aiming for either, it just happened to be that we created one of the best academy teams in the world and they were already at a really high level.

xertioN is the 2022 Bold Prediction of ZywOo, broky, and Twistzz

To talk a little about the way the change went down, it caught Bymas by surprise. He mentioned on Twitter he came into TeamSpeak for practice and was told the change was happening. How come it went down like that?

On the day we finalized the decision to bench him and move up xertioN, we were still in talks with xertioN's agency and figuring out the exact deals and terms of his contract. Obviously before a deal is made, you can't tell the other player that 'hey, you're out,' because then you only have four players, and MOUZ as an organization has obligations, they have partnerships and stuff. They have a team that they need to participate in tournaments and leagues with, and if you just bench a guy then you're down to four players, and at that moment we didn't have a replacement ready.

It actually turned out they had a morning meeting to finalize things, and on that day we were supposed to practice, the wheels keep turning, it was a normal practice day for us. We kinda knew it was going down, it was pretty much set in stone, we had already consulted everyone on the team, done a handful of different meetings, talked pros and cons of making a swap and all that goes with it. It's not like it's a dictatorship where I make the final decision. Of course, I'm fully responsible if something doesn't turn out well, as I should be.

So they had a morning meeting, and as it finished, we were supposed to practice maybe 15 minutes later. In those 15 minutes I could have probably called Bymas privately and told him on the phone, but instead I told the other guys not to join TeamSpeak, and that when Auri comes I'd tell him there's a reason why the guys are not here and how it went down, our reasoning behind it, what's next for him.

We ended up actually talking for a good half an hour, he saw a lot of the points I made. I think he took it really well, I must admit I was quite impressed with him there. He also sent a really nice chat message afterwards to all the guys, and then an hour later we all met on TeamSpeak and talked it over with the team, and brought in xertioN because by then we'd made a deal and he could play with us. That was kinda how it went down. Maybe not ideal and I could have called him, somehow we could have cancelled four days of work while they were negotiating and not practiced those days. In a perfect world, and this is not just on me, MOUZ would have had this deal made many days prior, but sometimes these things drag out and I could have told him when we had the weekend off if it went differently.

You mentioned that you'll have a month of practice before EPL. Do you think playing mostly scrims and having such a short period after your first officials and the start of the RMR could be a little dangerous, in terms of being able to make the changes needed before the RMR gets underway?

Good question. As I said earlier, we have a good group of people who grew a lot over the last eight months. The fundamentals are quite strong, we have a 12 day bootcamp planned, starting from the 31st we all travel to Hamburg together and then we're travelling together for EPL, so we'll be on the road for quite a bit, bootcamping, sitting next to each other, feeling out how that is, playing our EPL group. Then we have one week between then and the RMR to make adjustments and work on the final touches. I believe it will be alright, but we're still a young and inexperienced group overall, the time we played on stage at Cologne was the first time for all of us. Only frozen has some experience playing in front of a proper crowd.

Was thinking the same thing. I think it's applicable once you've qualified for the RMR. Either way, they did him dirty.
2022-09-01 09:51
Once you attempt to qualify with a team, you are locked in to that team for the whole cycle. Bymas will have to wait for the next major's qualification cycle to begin, unless Mouz lists him as their sub and needs to make a substitution at some point.

Assuming it's fessor that was with Astralis talent, he wouldn't have played in the RMR's prior. No team can attempt to qualify 2 rosters. So he would have still been free to play.

2022-08-31 22:18
Snakecrone needs to be kicked out uf mousesports as fast as possible. Even worse coach than peacemaker.
2022-08-31 22:36
Mouz should get Hunden next.

Sycrones way of working is so sneaky...

First of all I see sycrone as an important part of mouz nxt project becoming really success.. therefore he can’t be like a shit coach! In general I liked bymas and his development but to be fair: he never became a T1 superstars in the almost 2 years with mouz … therefore I can understand to try something new from an org perspective. I like the interview and the honestly about the decision finding process and everything around! It sucks for bymas but I fully can understand the points (from an org perspective) Hope to see xertion & the team having a good start in EPL! And for bymas best of luck with an other org .. or maybe in mouz nxt … sometimes this leads to a second chance (like kito at BIG - even if the situation is not completely comparable).

This man does not know what he is doing with MOUZ, had only made 1 competent move (adding torzsi) and everything thing else he had done has been mishandled or downright horrible decision making. Benching NBK when he helped them become better for JDC and now he has benched Bymas for Xertion without any notice. If anything he should have kept NBK and benched dexter for xertion than and kept jdc on the academy team as a team of: NBK - IGL Frozen - Lurk/Support Hybrid Torzsi - AWP Bymas - Support/2nd Entry Xertion - Entry This team would take them places as NBK is a well more established leader than Dexter (having more exp and better caller) and Xertion would help fill the entry role properly so bymas could play his more natural positions and NBK could also fill.

iirc there was some stuff about keeping dexter/frozen/bymas core so that they directly get a spot at the rmr probably its last major i guess snakron complimenting his academy boys so much but too scared to believe them in making through the previous rmr quals
2022-09-01 04:16
rip bymas he cant attend major
2022-09-01 03:59
still snake by not letting him go before the RMR quals for the reason "too risky" did dirty to NBK and now Bymas never even had any respect for Mouz since NBK incident and this is definitely not helping it hope NBK go further in the RMR than these snakes and a better future for Bymas than staying in this snake team

lol, that doesn’t justify the fact that they fucked bymas’ chances to try to qualify for another team for the major. scummy ass move

I never said the move was justified, im fully agree that Mouz fucked him for not benching him before RMR qual

Thank god Dexter is supposedly good with kids? ^o^

Sycrone should get some help how to manage situations like this. Both the way the situation got handled, but also the way he explains himself in this interview. He tries way to hard to explain why it's okay to treat a person like this.
2022-09-01 08:34
Couldn't they have signed Xertion and bench Xertion and let Bymas play his rightfully earned RMR? After the major kick Bymas and +Xertion. They could've done that, right?

Sure they could and they can technically use him as a substitute, which would make it a honourable move, but the snake coach is not concerned with concepts like honour. There's always a cost for every move and you usually can choose where to put the cost, in this case mouz could have chosen: 1. Bench Bymas early - risk not having a 5th player if the deal falls through, dumb move all around, but at least doesn't blue ball the benched player 2. Warn Bymas in advance he might be benched - cost is risking him not performing as well in the RMR because he might not see the point, but shows good org intentions, minimal damage done even in the worst case, best option 3. Bench him in an ambush mafia style and pretend you're his friend - all the damage goes to Bymas, most selfish option, inline with sycrone's previous bullshit with NBK benching nepotism Bymas was the reason I got into watching pro cs and seeing him get shafted this way might be the reason to stop. Although now it could be fun seeing mouz tank badly and the snake coach getting replaced the same way.

They fire their players on an empty TS server? If not in real life, not even via Skype or FaceTime where you look them in the eyes? Jesus what a kiddo clown company. Next player to drop is maybe benched via E-Mail, who knows ..

sycrone my man, you should grow the fuck up. You're no longer in your shitholes teams, practicing in your garage. You should act like a pro, in a pro team. "We agreed", yes sure, that's why he didn't know he was going to be benched. Also being benched is not is job. Sure it's an upgrade, but you have to also think about your players. How can you act like a snake to your OWN PLAYERS, imagine how they feel right now, anyone can be benched at any time no matter what. Also Bymas worked for that RMR spot. Majors are the biggest things to attend as a player. It is an absolute lack of respect & ethic. Even if Bymas probably had it coming, he was nothing special in this lineup since his addition. But it doesn't grant you the rights to act like a snake. Free advice : learn how to manage human resources.

I wish this guy also gets sacked like bymas over a teamspeak.
2022-09-01 17:05
Actually great answers, from the headlines it didn't look good, but when you read it all it makes sense what he says and doesn't seem as "bad" of a behaviour.
2022-09-01 18:23
Hope they paying him his full salary. Such a rat this guy
