MSL launches new Danish CSGO roster with aizy and JUGi

Kenneth Williams • August 12, 07:48

After weeks of anticipation, Mathias “MSL” Lauridsen’s new Counter-Strike: Global Offensive roster has finally been revealed.

The squad is primarily composed of very experienced players. Rifler Frederik “Fessor” Sørensen is still on the rise. The new CSGO team will be commanded by MSL himself, who previously called shots for North and OpTic Gaming. The squad is currently looking for a sponsor before attempting to qualify for major tournaments.

MSL’s new CSGO team roster:

  • Mathias “MSL” Lauridsen
  • Frederik “Fessor” Sørensen
  • Philip “aizy” Aistrup Larsen
  • Jakob “JUGi” Hansen
  • Jesper “tenzki” Plougmann Mikalski

The first news of the new roster was broken by esports entertainment platform Jaxon. MSL also teased the team through social media on several occasions, including a request for sponsorship inquiries. The team is composed entirely of Danish players. The region is currently in a rush to find new CSGO talent. This roster may play a role in Astralis recently acquiring second AWPer Philip “Lucky” Ewald.

Is MSL’s new CSGO roster good?

The new roster isn’t even formally announced yet, but the leaked names definitely draw attention. AWPer aizy returns after a brief break to rejoin his old captain from North. aizy’s own former teammate Fessor rounds out the roster. The 20-year-old rifler has averaged a respectable .68 damage and .69 kills per round over the past three months. He’ll look to veterans JUGi and tenzki to help guide his development. Those two veteran players have a combined 15 years of professional CSGO experience.

Perhaps the biggest factor is MSL himself. The captain is famous for his strong direction and very specific strategic approach to CSGO. He’s working with multiple former teammates and a younger talent, so the team may quickly adjust to his methodical approach. 

Don’t expect MSL’s new team to immediately begin winning championships. Denmark has a fairly developed tier-two CSGO scene with plenty of solid teams to train against. With time and a few tournament showings, this squad could eventually enter the discussion as one of Denmark’s top teams.
