Sprout to take on full German Roster, syrsoN and mirbit to join
According to sources close to Rush B Media, Sprout are looking to transition into a fully German lineup with Josef “faveN” Baumann’s former EURONICS Gaming teammate Sabit “mirbit” Coktasar and ALTERNATE aTTaX AWPer Florian “syrsoN” Rische. If this move is to happen, they would be replacing Danes Niels Christian “NaToSaphiX” Sillassen and Martin “PERCY” Wessel. Whilst this move may not be extremely popular, the team look to become the best team comprised of entirely Germans since BIG's taking on of Owen “smooya” Butterfield in April of this year.
This move comes as somewhat of a surprise, seeing as NaToSaphiX has been a strong addition to the line-up since his introduction in February. The Danish AWPer boasts an impressive 1.14 rating on LAN this year, which is the best on the roster. PERCY’s rating was a less impressive 1.05, however, he was the in-game leader for the squad.
Sprout failed to qualify for the previous Major in London and have since had few results to write home about. Though they have played some clean Counter-Strike at times, they have often failed to convert leads and close games into victories, which may have prompted the move.
mirbit will be one of the team’s more inexperienced players, but one who is thought highly of within the German Counter-Strike scene. He has only played five best of three’s on LAN, but has stood in for Sprout before, last month, and has had a good showing in what little high level competition opponents he has had. Since his exit from the now international EURONICS Gaming, mirbit has displayed his level of individual talent on multiple occasions in FPL. syrsoN, however, has been a destructive force with the big green gun on ALTERNATE aTTaX these last six months, on and off LAN. He has showcased a stunning 1.20 rating on LAN with the team. If he can continue that form at a higher level and go toe-to-toe with some of the best, he could be a very exciting player to watch.
This move would leave Sprout with:
Denis “denis” Howell
Timo “Spiidi” Richter
Josef “faveN” Baumann Sabit “mirbit” Coktasar
Florian “syrsoN” Rische
Tobias "tow b" Herberhold (Coach)
Following this move, NaToSaphiX and PERCY would be placed on the bench until further notice.
