acoR, siuhy leave MOUZ; mhL explores options outside academy teams

MOUZ NXT are on the lookout for three new players after recent changes.

MOUZ announced the departures of the main team's former AWPer Frederik "⁠acoR⁠" Gyldstrand and academy team's in-game leader Kamil "⁠siuhy⁠" Szkaradek on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, MOUZ NXT sniper Miłosz "⁠mhL⁠" Knasiak has revealed that he has been allowed to explore his options and is on the lookout for a new team. The two-time WePlay Academy League winner stated he is "determined to show my worth outside academy teams."

GamerLegion-bound acoR leaves MOUZ after eight months on the bench

acoR and siuhy have been expected to leave the German organization after they've been seen playing under the GamerLegion banner in the IEM Road to Rio qualifiers in the past two weeks.

With a new team featuring two long-time members and Falcons' benched rifler Nicolas "⁠Keoz⁠" Dgus, they snatched a spot at the Regional Major Ranking event in the final open qualifier and are set to compete for a place at the IEM Rio Major in early October.

Benched Heroes, GamerLegion through to Europe RMR

The qualifiers marked acoR's first official appearances in HLTV.org's records in 2022. The Danish AWPer was benched in MOUZ at the beginning of the year after he averaged a 1.03 rating in 2021, being unable to match the impressive form he showcased while with MAD Lions during the previous year (1.14).

Meanwhile, with siuhy released and mhL looking for opportunities elsewhere, MOUZ NXT are down to just two players: Hubert "⁠szejn⁠" Światły, the last member of the original core that won four consecutive WePlay Academy League seasons, and Jimi "⁠Jimpphat⁠" Salo, the most recent addition.

The junior squad recently lost star rifler Dorian "⁠xertioN⁠" Berman after he was promoted to the main team, following in the footsteps of Ádám "⁠torzsi⁠" Torzsás and Jon "⁠JDC⁠" de Castro.

Love that these teams ruin up and coming teams and then bench the star player they received while the tier 2 team dies. It's gnna happen to Sanpayas too. He's going to be benched in a few months and movi will become irrelevant

Only alex made 1.65 million dollar contract with c9. win.gg/news/cloud9-signs-es3tag-in-a-dol.. Es3tag made 2.1 million dollar deal with c9. Then you trusting to animal thorin's tweet OMEGALUL.

But again you are just pulling 3mil out of ur asshole. Gambit were looking to sell their roster fast cuz they weren’t making any more money as the team couldn’t play under the gambit name. C9 bought them for cheap. Also saying things like Fluxo paid 250k for lucoazy is stupid when CPHF entire roster was 250k

Gambit and VP are not poor like CPHF. Nice comparison.
2022-08-31 16:18
why are u stating a fact using a comparasion? It was only a mil cuz of the sanctions. From what I heard Gambit was sold to a agency company that sold to C9, I think that was the only way they could sell them, that's why it was cheap
2022-08-31 16:45
Unfortunatly this is the reason there are academy teams. Developer talents for main teams or to sell them. Will always have a lot of changed in these teams

When acoR was on the squad, it was both him and Bymas really letting the team down. Dexter is another weak player, now that both acoR and Bymas are out of the main roster, lets see what happens

Acor isn't weak. He just doesn't fited in the mouz play style. Acor can hold lines, torszi can make moves. But that doesn't mean one is better than the other. They just need different lineups.

Totally agree. He was a bad fit for Mouz, much like Snax was when they signed him. lesser players with great synergy perform much better than great players who aren't playing as a cohesive unit. Just look at the 2019 iteration of Mouz, they were punching way above their weight class.
2022-09-02 17:27
nah, every time a new member joins it's a setback for a team cause they need to relearn all the strats and protocols. best thing astralis can do is accept farlig is a sub top sniper and use him as a support awp like g2 did with amanek until they can get device back.

0.69 awper is what farlig gets from awping 2 rounds in the whole game what ppl dont see , is farlig barley awp's in astralis , acor is no beast but he is plug and play , its an awp role , for astralis as long asyou hit your shots then thats good for them
2022-08-31 12:29
2 replies
>is farlig barley awp's in astralis exactly my point, they use him as support and only let him awp in some situations when they REALLY need to lock some angle and make sure nobody crosses. that's the best they can do at this point because no danish awper on the market is good enough to meet their expectations. acor would make no difference because he would get the same role like throwing nades when they execute and only awping when securing ez ct positions like long on overpass.
2022-08-31 12:36

wrong sadly >REALLY need to lock some angle and make sure nobody crosses. he does do that , he just bad , he cant hold angles , even when told too , he misses to much ancient T side , he holds the doors angle so CT dont agress from ramp nuke, holds ramp , misses shots or gets a 1 for 1 even on post plants T side , he cant hold angles , that is a fact about farlig offcourse i would not let him just do whatever he wants because he is incapable of doing that , he is mechanicly t3 , even lucky had better mechanics and movment he is a bad awper , was good in T2 but got stuck there for too long

Why disband the squad that was the academy rockstar? Its not like the main squad is going anywhere and dropping the academy lineup for new talents on top looks like a bad move. Mhl was such a seasoned player in the team and they decided to just drop him. Nuts!

letting mhl, arguably their best player after xertion, go like that is crazy. i was least impressed by szejn (and jimpphat, but hes hasnt been on the team as long), so i thought he would have been the first to go, but i dont understand why they let the team break up like that at all
