mousesports adds ropz to CS:GO roster

From mousesports on

Today, mousesports CS:GO division is excited to announce the addition of Robin "ropz" Kool, one of the most promising talents in the world of Counter-Strike. The Estonian will replace Timo "Spiidi" Richter in the starting lineup with immediate effect, who will become the team's official substitute player.


Our new fifth player has been showing his skills in the FaceIt Pro League, winning the January 2017 season. Considered by many professionals as one of the top newcomers to the pro scene, "ropz" will make his debut today in our ESL Pro League Game again EnVyUs.


After the ELEAGUE major earlier this year and the departure of Nikola "NiKo" Kovac, we have been monitoring the team and the market closely to find suitable additions: "Ropz is one of the biggest talents out there and we had great success nurturing upcoming young players in the past. I am confident that he will be a great addition to the team and develop into an important role for mousesports. On the other hand i am really sad that Spiidi will move out of the lineup. Timo is a great person and player, unfortunately he lost some of his motivation to play in the past months and decided to take a step back.", says mousesports CEO Cengiz Tüylü.


Timo "Spiidi" Richter will move into a bench position. "After the ELEAGUE major I fell into a bit of a hole, motivation wise. I didn't feel as comfortable in the team as before and decided I will take a step back and try get into my old form again. I will keep streaming for all of you guys and will definitely not leave the competitive scene for good", says Spiidi.


Everyone at mousesports wants to thank Timo for everything he did for us, the commitment towards the team and his teammates and simply for being an awesome guy, who can keep an entire team in good spirit.


The new mousesports starting five will jump into action right away with the ESL Pro League match against EnVyUs today at 19:00 CEST. Please give a warm welcome to Robin "ropz" Kool and support our team when we try to collect important points for EPL Finals.


Today marks the day I start my pro career which I am extremely excited for. I'm really happy to start this journey with mousesports, one of the best international CS:GO teams out there currently. I am very motivated to work hard and prove myself to everyone out there. We as a team are determined to become a top contender and do our best. - Robin "ropz" Kool
