mousesports International Reserve
posted by Blue_Knight, 322 days agoThanks to some curious messages on social networks, rumours have been circulating tonight as to whether or not Mousesports will be attending The International this summer, and if so, in what capacity.
Suspicions were first raised when mouz player Alexandru 'ComeWithMe' Craciunescu posted this exclamation to his followers on Twitter. He then shared another message to clarify, which claimed that his team will be in Seattle this summer as a 'back-up team'.
In order to clear up the matter, joinDOTA reached out to mouz team manager Florian 'PaisY' Schmedes, who had this to say:
Speaking for me and my team, we are very happy to be considered as a backup team for The International. Despite the defeat in the TI2 Qualifiers, we did not bury our heads in the sand. We kept on to work hard and did not lose our dedication to improve as a team. Everyone within the team knows that our current roster has a huge talent and potential and even though we have been working together for not that of a long time, we have shown great performances ever since. A big thanks goes out to all our fans!"
joinDOTA also approached Valve for confirmation which brought forth a short but clarifying answer:
Yes, Mouz is a backup team.
