Mousesports Crazy Run, BIG Goes Full German, More – CSGO Recap 12/31/2019
Welcome back everyone to another exciting day of CSGO news. We hope you all have had a fantastic holiday season, and 2020 is just as great for you guys!
Today we’ve got a look at Mousesports ending out the year with a winning streak, rumors of BIG going full German, K1to’s departure of Sprou, and the confirmation of BnTeT to Gen.G
As always, we’ve got a lot to cover today, so let’s dive on in.
Mousesports Winning Streak
Our first stop today takes us over to Mousesports, who have been making crazy gains for the past month to end out the year.
In four weeks Mousesports went to four straight Grand Finals and took home three titles, winning at the Asia Championships, EPL Season 10 Finals and CS_Summit 5. They won second place at Epicenter 2019, earning themselves nearly $700,000 in those 26 days.
Mousesports has shown glimpses of greatness in the past, but the team’s winning streak could finally spell a turning point for the squad where they go from perennial contenders to world-beaters. We’ll have to see if they can hold their form going into the 2020 season. Things are looking up for the second-ranked roster, for now.
BIG to Go Full German
Elsewhere in German, Berlin International Gaming (BIG) gave in and decided to become a full German roster. The rumors from OverDrive indicate the team is looking to drop Smooya and Xantares for K1to and Syrson from Sprout.
This confirms rumors that the team was looking into adding the German duo to their line-up. Though, it now begs the question as to where Xantares and Smooya will go now that they’re without a squad.
On Sprout’s end, the team will be replacing their two leaving Germans with HellRaisers’ Oskar and Arcy’s Dycha. However, none of the teams involved confirmed or commented on the moves.
Gen.G Grabs BnTet
Gen.G finally confirmed picking up BnTeT from Tyloo to finish out their roster.
The move is the largest international signing of a Chinese player we’ve seen. It could end up hurting Tyloo in the long run as the team loses its best player.
That’s all we have for today, thanks for reading. We’ll be back later this week with more exciting CSGO news, so stay tuned. Happy New Year!
