mousesports part ways with CS 1.6

ImageAfter having won 13 EPS titles as well as the 2008 IEM World Championship, German organisation mousesports will say farewell to their CS 1.6 squad.

DE mousesports have decided to close their CS 1.6 division which was announced in a fittingly named newspost called “The end of an era”. The reasoning behind the unexpected decision is said to be due to Counter-Strike 1.6 increasingly becoming weakened at major events in comparison to newer titles such as League of Legends and Dota 2.

The throne for the 14th EPS title may still be in site for the team, as the organisation announced they will continue to participate under the DE mousesports tag. There will be a change in the roster although, seeing the most recent Danish addition DK Danny 'zonic' Sørensen become casted out as his contract ends with DE Thanh Vinh 'ninja' Bui joining the team once again as their new fifth. Even though the team will continue to follow through the EPS season which they are currently ranked third in, the organisation stressed that they will not be competing at this year’s Copenhagen Games in which they were invited to.

Many achievements have been accomplished over the year by the Germans, with 13 EPS titles being under their belt along with the crowning of World Championships at IEM in 2008. The team also managed to take gold at GameGune 2009, IEM4 European Championship and a second place at IEM 6 GC Guangzhou.
