With Mousesports disappointing performance at the Eleague Major, they made some changes to their CSGO roster. They replaced long standing member of the team; ChrisJ with Oskar. This move was definitely a surprise to the community as ChrisJ was never seen as the problem within the team.
In a detailed statement by Niko on the move he explains how it was a difficult decision. He has a great personal chemistry with ChrisJ as a player and has always looked up to the iconic player.
I know that it is a big surprise for you that we replaced Chris “chrisJ” de Jong with Tomáš “Oskar” Šťastný since he was 2nd best rated player in our team and a long time member of mousesports. But you also have to understand us, we obviously have our reasons why we did this, which we can’t obviously share with you guys. What I can say to you is that, I’m gonna do everything what I can to make this team better. We are gonna try some new things, which I hope it will work out. I will not be our In-Game Leader anymore and hopefully it will boost our game. Timo ‘Spiidi’ Richter will take it over with help from me and our coach. We will do whatever it’s needed and possible to make better results in our future. In the end, what should sound reasonable for you is that, we changed AWP Player for another AWP. All I ask from you guys is, patience and not so much hate towards us, we are not going through easy time either as you might think, especially after this decision which we made, Chris “chrisJ” de Jong been my longest teammate in this team and one of the best persons I’ve met out there and I respect him even more now how he handled and took this situation, I wish him more than best of luck in his future. Please, welcome to our new/old teammate Tomáš “Oskar” Šťastný. Thanks for the support <3
