Mousesports add two Coaches ahead of MLG Columbus

Mousesports have added two new coaches to their CS:GO team. This move has come just 20 days before the major is to be held at Columbus.


Mousesports are placed in Group A for MLG Columbus Major. The other teams in this Group are :

  • Ninjas in Pyjamas
  • Flipsid3 Tactics
  • Luminosity Gaming

Two out of these three teams are known for their tactical play. Their IGL’s, B1ade and Fallen have really impacted their team’s gameplay with their strategies.


Mousesports have said in their statement,

Today mousesports announces its temporary coaching team, that will prepare the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive division for the upcoming MLG Major in Columbus. During the weeks before the tournament and at the actual event, Niclas „enkayJ“ Krumhorn and Navid „Kapio“ Javadi will share the coaching duties between them.


While Krumhorn has been working with the team for the past weeks, Javadi will join him for the first Major of 2016. „Niclas has done an outstanding job as an analyst for us this year. With the addition of Navid, we not only have an excellent tactical mind on our staff, but also someone who has seen it all in competitive CS and knows what it takes to win at the biggest stages. Especially late in the game he will help the team to keep calm and close out the match“, says mousesports CEO Cengiz Tüylü.


On the server, Javadi will act as the sixth person and ingame coach, while Krumhorn is already busy preparing maps and tactics. „The first days have been very positive. I feel like Navid and I are working together very well“, says Krumhorn. With the mousesports CS 1.6-team, Javadi has won big trophies, like the ESL Intel Extreme Masters II and IEM Dubai. „The progress the team makes is really impressive. My job will be to help them get more secure in high pressure situations“, says Javadi.


The duo will fly out to Columbus with the team end of march. In the meantime they will supervise practice sessions and the upcoming matches in the ESL Pro League and Dreamhack Malmö qualifier.

The Mousesports team flying out to Columbus will be :

  • Chris “ChrisJ” de Jong
  • Denis “denis” Howell
  • Johannes “nex” Maget
  • Nikola “Niko” Kovac
  • Timo “Spiidi” Richter
  • Navid “Kapio” Javadi
  • Niclas “enkay J” Krumhorn
