Now that we’ve popped the champagne, it’s about time we checked who went where. We’ve got a roundup of the bigger (and smaller) roster moves that went down ever since we last dropped in your inbox.
Oh finally, somebody has saved valde from No- er, OG!
What great team has saved him? Has he finally got his big Astralis move? Have FaZe come steaming in? Have G2 changed course?
No, it might just be EG according to 1pv. No bird or plane here, but certainly no superman either.
EG is a bitterly disappointing move for valde fans, but it’s lowkey quite an exciting team. If Brehze turns back into BrEZ instead of whatever the hell he’s been for the last few months, this team is fun again.
valde, autimatic, Brehze with CeRq and Stewie backing them up?
We’re tentatively excited. Assuming those moves also end up going through, of course.
valde brings some small-site speciality in a region where intelligent role players are suspiciously absent, hopefully allowing the others to shine. Though maybe it would make more sense for them to build around him, than Stewie. NA gonna do what NA gonna do.
Quite what this means for OG, we’re not at all sure. But this is the NA shuffle section, so you’re not here to hear about them. Let’s talk more about NA.
Finally, ropz is out of MOUZ’ grasp and moving to, drum roll please...
We don’t know yet!
Frustrating, right? Not only for all the neutral fans, but for the MOUZ fans as well. Everybody needs some closure.
The top tier lurker has been connected to G2 and most prominently FaZe, but a move has yet to come to fruition.
He is definitely out of mousesports though, meaning we can only assume he is still negotiating with his future organization. It has to be FaZe, right?
Meanwhile, MOUZ can not only say bye to ropz, but also to mithR. He’s gone to Apeks Rebels, where he feels his talents will be better put to use. This leads us to only one conclusion: MOUZ has a leadership issue.
And we’re inclined to say that it’s more to do with ingame decision making, than it has to do with anything outside the server, and adding NBK won’t fix that...
If reports hold up, the new mousesports roster will consist of: frozen, dexter, NBK, torzsi and JDC.
coldzera is apparently fronting the new 00Nation roster with - wait for it - malbsMd and try.
Now that might not mean too much to you if you’re a more casual fan, but try in particular has been really hyped for a while and had an impressive performance over in Europe when 9z came over.
malbsMd is a favourite of the newsletter, on the other hand; he’s a raw, talented entry-fragger with an abundance of skill and fearlessness. Remember that Deagle 4k?
We’re sure coldzera can find a way to bait him - hell, cold could find a way to let the most chivalrous door-holding man go in first, never mind a crazy man like malbs.
Nobody knows for sure quite who’s staying from 00Nation and who is going; but kNgV’s mother-in-law (yes, really) seemingly leaked that he’s out. vsm and leo? That would be a pretty fun team to watch, at least.
We’re going to miss kNgV and his unique brand of over-aggression, both in and out of the server as it were, but we’re sure he’ll find a new spot at some point.
Brazil is going to be a whole lot of fun this year.
