Karrigan talks about his CSGO career at mousesports

In a recent interview on the HLTV Confirmed podcast, Karrigan talked about the unusual situation at mousesports which lead to his departure. The pandemic and incidents surround other members caused a lot of tension in the team and its players.

” There were some issues in mousesports. I would say that since COVID-19 started, there were a lot of issues with the woxic situation, we had to bench him in the summer after we flopped in ESL One Cologne. It was a very unstable period back then, and we also lost Rejin. I felt like I was left in a situation where I had to handle everything myself, and it was kind of tough for me. “

He talked about feeling burned out while playing for them after receiving the main AWPer role following the departure of woxic. Although the instability never really showed up on the results, he admitted that his future looked really bleak and he wanted to decide in January 2021. Even though he had ropz who he considers as the best rifler in the world, the lack of premium talent in the team became a deciding factor in his decision to leave.

Even though he had a lot of offers from various  CSGO teams, the experiences of his time at Faze made the Danish player’s decision of joining them much easier.

“FaZe is an organisation that I trust. I enjoyed my time back then with the people around the organisation. I felt that the players in the lineup needed a big voice to come back to the top.”

Karrigan now joins a stacked Faze team that has Coldzera, rain, Twistzz and broky. The team desperately needed a primary caller that can truly uplift the team, and it looks like Karrigan will take the mantle of the in-game leader. The team has all the makings of becoming a juggernaut and compete against the best in the scene.
