German organisation mousesports has returned to the Dota scene after a two year absence by signing the former Ad Finem roster.
After being a staple of the Dota scene for years Mouz has taken a break from the game in recent times, choosing instead to focus on its CS:GO squad. Earlier this year they reportedly sold their star CS player for $500,000, and have chosen to spend some of that money on a new Dota team.
The former Ad Finem roster managed to surprise everyone by taking second at the Boston Major last year. However when the Ad Finem organisation was acquired by PENTA Sports the team did not move across with them. Looking for a new home they found mousesports, and will now represent them at all competitions going forward.
"Dota is one of the most exciting games in esports with a huge and very dedicated fanbase, amazing events, and the biggest prize pools,” said mousesports CEO Cengiz Tüylü. “We couldn’t wait to get back into the Dota community and I believe we found the perfect group to take this step. Our roster is bursting with team spirit and passion for the game and their first week has exceeded all our expectations. They will make it easy for our fans to welcome them and we will do everything on our part to integrate them as quickly as possible. We are all looking forward to seeing the guys in action in Kiev."
