mousesports welcomes STYKO
Big day for our CS:GO team. After more than two years we say good bye to one of our longest standing members Denis „denis“ Howell. His place in the starting lineup will be filled by Martin „STYKO“ Styk.
The latest addition to our remodeled squad has been on the radar for a while and we are extremely excited that the transfer from HellRaisers worked out this time. „STYKO“ has been a leading player for HellRaisers for almost two years and the 23-year old Slovakian recently decided to put his studies on hold to focus on full time Counter-Strike. „Martin is a very smart player. I have been working with him before and know what he is capable of. He can adapt to almost any role in a team. STYKO will be able to support chrisJ with calling our strategies and be very helpful in clutch situations“, says mouz coach Sergey Bezhanov.
The Slovakian himself is looking forward to meet his new teammates: „I am very pleased with the opportunity to be part of mousesports and rejoining with my former teammate Oskar and my former coach. We will have a rather busy schedule during the few months but I am sure we will mix well within the team in terms of in-game roles and personalities.“
While we are happy to welcome a new and exciting player to our organization, everyone at mousesports is also very sad about the departure of Denis. With more than two years and many memorable moments on and off the field, Denis played a vital part in our history and will be missed by teammates and staff alike. „There are a lot of stories to tell about the last two years. To cut it short, I want to thank all the staff members and especially every single one of my former teammates. It was a good time and I am thankful for it. A very special thank you goes out to all of the fans that supported our team and me personally. You will see me back in action soon“, says Denis Howell.
We want to thank Denis for everything he did for our organization and wish him the very best for his future endeavors on the server and the catwalk. On the other hand please give a warm welcome to STYKO. The team will start practicing together this week and will have the first official appearance on August 22th in the first week of ESL Pro League against GODSENT. You can meet us a live at the gamescom in Cologne from August 24th till 26th. Follow us on social media to get all the infos around our schedule in Cologne.
