nooky leaves Torqued for mouz

February 2nd, 2013 17:05

Andre "nooky" Utesch is on the verge of joining mousesports after leaving Torqued.

The news comes just days after the former CS:Source team went freelance following the shutdown of mTw because of the organisation's financial problems.

The team, who went under the temporary name Torqued, also confirmed the additions of Scandinavian duo Andreas "MODDII" Fridh and Lasse "stingeR" Midstue, and their results in ESEA-Open, in which they sit second, with eight victories from nine matches, make them look like a sure bet for the Invite division next season.

But Torqued have now been left with a place to fill after Utesch left the team's roster on ESEA's website to join that of mousesports.

The German team have been in disappointing form of late, and the arrival of former fnatic captain Finn "karrigan" Andersen in December has done little to improve their fortunes.

mouz are currently rock bottom in ESEA-Invite, with one victory from nine matches, and are due to face leaders Ninjas in Pyjamas on Wednesday.

mousesports currently have the following six-man roster:

Denmark Finn "karrigan" Andersen
Germany Michele "zonixx" Köhler
Germany Manuel "approx" Zeitz
Germany Tobias "Troubley" Tabbert
Germany Johannes "nex" Maget
Germany Andre "nooky" Utesch

Torqued, who remain on the lookout for a new organisation, now have the following quartet:

United Kingdom George "hudzG" Hoskins
Sweden Andreas "MODDII" Fridh
Canada Joshua "steel" Nissan
Norway Lasse "stingeR" Midstue

how unfortunate.
2013-02-02 17:06
It's even worse now...
2013-02-02 17:06
salaries and german eps, thats all
2013-02-02 17:08
Torqued? The team with Steel? Didnt he say on the ESEA stream that his team was doing really good and almost won against nip on praccs and pretty much crushed every other team?
2013-02-02 17:11
Lack of sponsors
2013-02-02 17:16
Well thats weird given that he said that they had received " a lot of different offers from various orgs, but dosen't want to name drop any yet."
2013-02-02 17:17
Well if he didn't want to mention any of the orgs that were interested in them, then probably it was not even worth mentioning
2013-02-02 17:25
when teams are talking to organisations its usually in private and not done on public streams and forums. any half decent teams would only name drop once they have already signed contracts or it was 100%
2013-02-02 20:12
the only reason they wudb getting offers is cus of moddii
2013-02-03 01:07
Moddii isnt THAT great. Everyone is hyping him as hell
2013-02-03 01:11
Moddii is the biggest name, which means that he's the most marketable player. I believe that was his point.

potentially he is, in 1.6 he was top10 international player, maybe/probably top5 in time he will probably become REALLY good in CSGO aswell, but who knows
2013-02-03 21:55
In time, yes. But people are talking about him like he's some kind of god right now, wich is not true. Same goes for Delpan.
2013-02-03 22:01
Netherlands liQuidmoTion 
True, the transition always needs time Fastest to reach top level was xizt I think :p And from sourcers scream n rattlesnake
2013-02-03 23:10
Xizt played the beta a lot tho, together with f0rest and get_right
2013-02-04 13:37
Netherlands liQuidmoTion 
Yeah that helps 4 sure
2013-02-04 18:33

steel is the biggest onliner atm, he prolly thinks online matches are going to make him famous.
2013-02-02 20:38
and you know when you're unsuccessful at cs when you care about "prac" results :)
2013-02-02 22:52
Sweden wmb 
i'd say vill that ritchiedrama is quote on quote of what you wrote earlier. he probably knows more than anyone in here about succeeding in games
2013-02-03 01:36
hes 1 of those low sAuce noobs tht think he knows everything
2013-02-03 01:06
wow :p didn't expect that at all what are the others gonna do :S wondering who's stepping down but I guess zonixx or approx!
2013-02-02 17:11
probably something to do with steel being the epitome of an american/canadian...
2013-02-02 17:12
torqued add delpan
2013-02-02 17:13
leaving Torqued, who have disbanded.
2013-02-02 17:13
i guess they won't retire, just make a new team? delpan+moddii together will be awesome!
2013-02-02 17:16
disbanding doesn't mean they retire, they just all quit the team
2013-02-02 17:17
looks like the dont disband afterall, main tittle has been changed
2013-02-02 17:19
just read that now too :-) though I think nooky was somehow the main core of Torqued/ex mTw
2013-02-02 17:21
okok I know it, sry sry for insultes.
2013-02-02 17:20
hahah it lasted
2013-02-02 17:13
nooky to destroy this team surely but slowly aswell?
2013-02-02 17:14
MODDII should make a team with delpan, face + 2
2013-02-02 17:17
Delpan doesn't even play competitively and face is washed up. So stop dreaming
2013-02-02 17:20
face is washed up because of how he was in cs:go after playing for a month?
2013-02-02 19:28
And by now he's supposed to be better? There aren't even any news if he still plays the game
2013-02-02 19:51
i doubt he has played since he got cut from mtw but that doesn't mean he's washed up (which suggests he has lost it), just that he currently isn't good at cs:go. there's no reason he couldn't be one of the top players if he wanted to.
2013-02-02 19:58
Maybe not a top player but a solid backup. And only if he would have motivation
2013-02-02 20:04
Peru dbie 
face > any vg player
2013-02-02 20:39
he was probably the world's best at his role in cs 1.6, there is zero reasons why he wouldn't be the same in cs:go if he wanted to
2013-02-02 20:46
Its more like he was the best at his role when he played for SK. And there are many factors such as age, motivation, time that wouldn't let him be as good as he was playing for SK. Not even mentioning with what teammates he would end up playing. And if he really wanted to be "the worlds best" at anything, he would have already done that playing for mTw
2013-02-02 21:42
he was the world's best at his role from 2010 till 2012, that's the last few years. he isn't old and he still has plenty of time. if you haven't noticed the idiots at ex-mtw kick a player every tuesday and thursday so he didn't exactly get a chance to prosper.
2013-02-02 22:49
Think face got a job and doesn't play anymore.
2013-02-03 01:15
approx or zonixx will go
2013-02-02 17:18
approx was good. zonixx out
2013-02-02 17:20
Was good. You're probably right
2013-02-02 17:27
mouz just got ahole lot better!
2013-02-02 17:21
face MODDI BARBARR dennis pita
2013-02-02 17:27
This team would never be a top team, so no use. They're all skilled players, but it looks more like a mixteam.
2013-02-02 17:55
hope he is replacing zonixx then .. mouz might getting competitive after all
2013-02-02 17:30
haha i was expecting that and now add steel ^^
2013-02-02 17:31
why would they, then they have to speak english again and that's not really a plus
2013-02-02 17:36
pff again changes
2013-02-02 17:33
ex-mTw + ZED
2013-02-02 17:36
lol no
2013-02-02 18:00
sad that fnatic kick moddii
2013-02-02 17:37
Denmark e1z 
he left didnt he?
2013-02-02 18:33
fnatic kick him cuz unprofessional discepline
2013-02-02 18:51
2013-02-02 20:24
I'm pretty sure he didn't WANT to play?
2013-02-02 21:06
well nice for torqued , nooky is noob , i hope they dont disband and get a new IGL , they have a lot of potencial i put them on the same level of rattlesnk´s team
2013-02-02 17:45
steel was their igl, not nooky
2013-02-02 18:11
u serius?? so very nice for them , they should add another monster
2013-02-02 18:46
Germany xlex 
LoL no nooky was igl cause he was the tactical brain .
2013-02-02 19:08
steel told on cadred that he is igl and nooky was a sniper
2013-02-02 19:18
gl nooky
2013-02-02 17:47
it looks like nooky will replace zonixx. zonixx stated on his esl-profil that he thanks all people for the good time
2013-02-02 17:48
Hmm, wonder who they will add as fifth? Anyways, really like this and RattlesnK's team, wish them both good luck :)
2013-02-02 18:01
u move to mouz only for money
2013-02-02 18:03
These guys have to pay for there bread either.
2013-02-02 18:52
CS isn't a wise career choice then.
2013-02-03 03:16
torqued new top team, MODDII top1 player. GG WP, bb NiP
2013-02-02 18:03
statement of steel: "Andre, George, and I all wanted to stay together as a core group and try to find organisations to stick together, but we have all been without salary for many months and need some form of income. We knew Andre had this offer and we were open about everything the entire way through. Unfotunately nothing substantial came through for us as an entity so Andre needed to take the offer before it expired for him. I like Andre as a player and a person and I wish him all the best -- no hard feelings and I am sure we will keep in close contact in the future. The rest of us are working on angles currently to stick together still."

hahaha steel won't attend a LAN until Valve releases the next CS.
2013-02-02 20:41
if they get a sponsor he will , so stay tuned :)
2013-02-02 21:08
I don't think anyone would take seriously a team that changes players as often, how many times they've kicked someone? 5-6? 7?
2013-02-02 23:51
Im not sure if they kicked anyone , or they left the team , but from what i heard these guys were one of the best teams in the world in CSS so i think they really deserve a shot out there.
2013-02-03 00:06
they've been playing GO from the very beginning and they are yet to attend something, it is the weirdest thing ever, I hope they get their shit together once and for all, lmao.
2013-02-03 00:15
I was hoping for that too after some rumors said that they were going to join myDGB org. But im confident that they will find a new sponzor soon.
2013-02-03 00:21

about time he donned the red shirt. he's a great captain and igl, and there is some great talent to work with on this mouz squad. i think he's just the man to whip them into shape. too bad this pretty much squashes any return to the big show for gob. i still think apx is a serious liability though.
2013-02-02 22:39
good changes
2013-02-02 23:25
wp steel...even 2 weeks AHAHAHA
2013-02-02 23:53
