It's a move normally reserved for 1.6 teams and it was a plan that served mTw well in the 1.6 scene for many years as they picked up some national honours as well as multiple international titles with their all-Danish lineup. This will be the first time an organisation has implemented this strategy in the CS:S scene and it's rumoured that more are set to follow with what is predicted to be a massive year for CS:S in 2012. The decision comes just a few weeks after the former lineup rescinded their Liga Pokal and EPS titles to rivals mousesports, results which marked the end of a steady decline the team had been suffering since their shock exit in the group stages of the ESWC.
It was clear that changes would be made to the lineup but nobody could foresee just how big an overhaul the management were planning, dropping almost all of the German contingent - save for Mr.mTw Andre 'nooky' Utesch - from the new look International team as well as young up and comer Brandon 'weber' Weber. The new faces tasked with bringing glory back to mTw are some of the most experienced and talented CS:S players to play the game, something of a necessity when results are needed. Lasse 'stingeR' Midstue will be ending his time with eSahara to link up with the new super-team and he will be joined by his former PowerGaming teammate Henry 'HenryG' Greer - marking the return of the infamous 'G-Team' partnership with George 'hudzG' Hoskins.
The fifth and surprising final face completing mTw.Int is none other than three-times i-series and CGS champion Elliot 'wez' Welsh, returning after a spell of inactivity following the demise of the former Epsilon team. The teams first match will be in the ESL Major Series later this evening as they take on Finnish upstarts Anexis whilst their steel on LAN will be tested this weekend at NorthCon in Germany.
Hey, I'm really looking forward to playing for mTw, at last the "G team" reunite. 2012 is certainly going to be a successful year for us.
mTw is one of the most renowned organisations in the world and I'm really excited to play for them alongside several of my absolute best friends in gaming. I look forward to fighting for every title next year, and I think we have an excellent chance of winning NorthCon next week just off the raw skill in this team. See you there!
