Berlin - Germany - Europe
Mousesports, also known as “mouz” is an esports organization whose roots are placed in Berlin, Germany. The organization was founded in 2002 and have since then grabbed several wins in different competitions in the esports world. Their biggest recognition comes especially from being successful at Counter-Strike.
Mousesports holds a veteran title next to their name since they have been in the game for a very long time, dominating the scene in the early days of CS:GO break out (version 1.6).
Although they are based in Berlin, Germany, it does not stop the team from being a true international organization, as they also happen to be home for many foreign players.
Their best placement on the world rankings so far is 7th place.
Back in 2008, the team went on a serious conquest, winning Intel Extreme Masters II by defeating team E-STRO in the final round.
October of the same year was also a success for them, as they captured the 1st place in IEM III Global Challenge Dubai, beating team Meet Your Makers in a fantastic match.
After having a break in 2009, they continued to roll in the same fashion in 2010 as they managed to capture another 1st place in IEM IV European Championship Finals, defeating Fnatic.
Then the long period of absence came, as they were gone from the big scene for 7 full years. If Rock was able to leave WWE for seven years and came back even stronger, so did Mousesports. They came back to win the 1st place in ESG Mykonos 2017 by beating an elite competition in Team Liquid.
December of the same year was followed by 2nd place in Esports Championship Series Season 4 – Finale, where they admitted a loss from FaZe Clan.
The next year was also successful, as the team went on to win multiple championships. The first one in 2018 was StarLadder and i-League StarSeries Season 4, where they managed to beat Natus Vincere.
Then came the V4 Future Sports Festival – Budapest, where they dominated the Virtus Pro Team, winning another 1st place.
July of the same year turned out to be a little bit slower for them, as they ended up 4th in ELEAGUE CS:GO Premier, taking a loss from Astralis.
They quickly bounced back to win 1st place in ESL One: New York, beating Team Liquid and winning 1st place in DreamHack Open Tours by defeating Valiance.
2019 turned out to be one of the best years for Mousesports, as they at the end of the year managed to claim several big titles. This has put them in the spotlight as a serious contender for the 1st place in the rankings.
Mousesports have a strong reputation for being an elite team and considering their results, they do not plan to stop causing trouble for other teams any time soon.
