mousesports have announced they will play cs_summit 5 with Niels-Christian "NaToSaphiX" Sillassen in lieu of Özgür "woxic" Eker, who will miss the event due to visa issues.
The recently crowned ESL Pro League Season 10 champions, mousesports, will not be able to have their full roster at this week's cs_summit 5 as their star AWPer, woxic, will have to sit this one out due to visa issues, the German organization has announced.
Taking woxic's place in mouz's lineup at cs_summit 5 will be former Sprout and Heroic player NaToSaphiX, who has been without a steady team since he was let go from the Danish outfit in August.
The visa issues come as a hit to the European squad as they are hoping to hold on to their top 5 spot in the world ranking, one of the team's goals before the break, which they managed to get after winning the CS:GO Asia Championships and the ESL Pro League Season 10 Finals.
mousesports' run at the $150,000 event will start with four best-of-ones, two against OG's new roster and two against Virtus.pro, on Thursday, December 12th, at the Summit Studios in Los Angeles, California.
mousesports' lineup with NaToSaphiX standing in for woxic at cs_summit 5 is:
Finn "karrigan" Andersen
Chris "chrisJ" de Jong
Robin "ropz" Kool
David "frozen" Čerňanský
Niels-Christian "NaToSaphiX" Sillassen (stand-in)
Allan "Rejin" Petersen (coach)
