MOUZ announced on Twitter that Nathan ‘NBK-’ Schmitt has joined their CSGO roster going into the 2022 season. The announcement was confirmed today by the org but rumours of him joining have been doing the rounds ever since 1pv.fr reported that he was in talks to make a comeback to CSGO with mouseports.
NBK- ‘The Kingmaker’ as he’s called, had been on OG’s bench since February 2021 and announced in June that he had retired from CSGO and was moving on to Valorant. According to the report from neL, NBK- turned down offers from Competitive teams in Valorant as he decided to make the switch back to CSGO.
NBK- has had a very decorated career in CSGO and has been a part of Legendary teams since the early days. He has represented names such as VeryGames, Titan, LDLC, EnvyUs, G2 esports and Team Vitality in the past and also has 2 Major Championships to his name. He was also a HLTV top 10 player from 2013-15, placing at #5, #17 and #9 respectively.
The switch to Valorant was short lived as he decided to come back to the king of FPS games relatively quickly even after getting offers from multiple orgs, much like Timothy ‘autimatic’ Ta and Nick ‘nitr0’ Cannella.
MOUZ had to make changes as well for the 2022 season as their star Robin ‘ropz’ Kool left for FaZe Clan, and AWPer Frederik ‘acOr’ Gyldestrand was benched after a run of poor performances. They promoted Adam ‘torzsi’ Torzsas to take over the AWP role while the final spot will be filled by NBK.
Coach ‘mithR’ was also released as he joined Apeks Rebels and Dennis ‘sycrone’ Niielsen was signed to take over as head coach.
