[edit] History

Mousesports was formed in 2002 in Berlin, Germany as a Counter-Strike team under the same given name.

Mousesports' DotA division once featured the likes of KuroKy, Miracle and Drayich. They were then considered a powerhouse in the European DotA scene. However, due to internal conflicts, Mousesports announced on April 20, 2009 that it would be withdrawing its support for DotA, despite the considerable amount of success they had.[2]

In 2011, Mousesports picked up EBIN as their new Dota 2 team.[3]

In September 2012, ComeWithMe departed from the team to form Team Y. 1437 also left the team. Black^ decided to take a break from competitive Dota. The three were temporarily replaced by Alex, Kebap, and KuroKy.

In October 2012, the players parted ways with Mousesports.[4]

In November 2012, Mousesports picked up German squad Zero, which included former Mousesports players KuroKy and Black^.

In February 2013, KuroKy was traded to Natus Vincere[5]. FATA- aswell as Black^ shared the position of the captain.

In March 2013, qojqva officially joined Mousesports as the fifth member.[6]

In April 2013, Alex was removed from the team, and syndereN was announced as his replacement. He also took over as captain.[7]

In September 2013, Black^ left to join LGD Gaming.int.[8][9] Later that month, qojqva left to join Team Liquid.[10][11]

In October 2013, mouz announced an all-new Danish squad, consisting of syndereN, Ryze, Cr1t-, Ace, and Link.[12]

In December 2013, syndereN announced his retirement from competitive Dota. He will continue to be part of the Mousesports organization. Link also left the team. Unicorn and exist were picked up as replacements.[13][14]
