mTw release Counter-Strike team
The German organization mTw has announced the release of their Danish Counter-Strike division.
It has been looming for quite some time now, that the end of the Danish flagship mTw was to come to an end. First, with the retirement of Alexander "ave" Holdt, then with the unsuccessful attempt to find a new fifth and going into the IEM6 Global Challenge New York, seeing Danny "zonic" Sørensen tweet: "It all ends in New York".
Today, the German organization announced via their website, that the Danish team has been released. The Danish team has since mid-December 2007 represented the German organization, following a merger with NoA.
As any other team, the Danes had their ups and downs, but will be remembered for their dominant 2008 year, as well as a solid team to reach the podium and in most recent times as the eternal runners-up. The last tournament under the mTw tag was the IEM6 Global Challenge New York, where the Danes managed a third place finish.
The Danish mTw squad is no more
In an interview published on mTw's website, Danny "zonic" Sørensen states that he doesn't see himself playing anything but Counter-Strike 1.6 and currently have no offers from teams lined up. About his retirement, Sørensen states:
"When I first wrote it, I actually decided to retire alongside ave, but I have had the time to think and I don't really think I'm done yet."
mTw had the following lineup:
Alexander "ave" Holdt
Danny "zonic" Sørensen
Martin "trace" Heldt
Timm "ArcadioN" Henriksen
Oliver "minet" Minet
A fact is that the only player retired is Alexander "ave" Holdt, whether we will see more players call it quits is at this time not known.
