Mouseports have won their first tier-one CS:GO championship today after beating Fnatic in the ESL Pro League season 10 grand finales. The German side has had its ups and downs in the last months, but following this championship win can now certainly be considered one of the best CS:GO teams in the world. They also won the CS:GO Asia Championships two weeks ago, though admittedly, that trophy isn’t as significant as the EPL trophy.
Fnatic, on the other hand, failed to show up at all yesterday. Mousesports won on Inferno 16 – 11, on Train 16 – 10, and on Mirage 16 – 11, comfortably in control throughout the series. The entire squad was fired up and all had their shining moments during the series.
Robin “ropz” Kool, alongside Chris “chrisJ” de Jong, the only remaining old-guard from the previous squad, was on fire yesterday. The 19-year-old has been standing out consistently and yesterday’s match was no different, ropz finishing the series with 74 kills and only 45 deaths.
Overall, in a fantastic performance at the ESL Pro League season 10 grand final, Mousesports showed just how amazing CS:GO can be. They were almost eliminated by TYLOO at the CS:GO Asia Championships, which potentially could have led to a host of roster changes after only having mixed results up to this point. However, the team seemed to regain confidence after winning in China, and brought the same team-spirit to Odense for the EPL season 10 finals.
Mousesports eliminated Renegades, ATK, Evil Geniuses, Astralis, and Fnatic on their journey to winning the EPL season 10 finals. For their troubles, they will take home the top prize of $250,000 USD, one Intel Grand Slam point, and an automatic slot for the IEM Katowice in 2020.
Mousesports next match will be next week at the cs_summit five alongside OG, FURIA, MIBR, G2, and Virtus Pro, starting on Thursday, December 12th.
