Robin Kool, known as “Ropz,” is a 21-year-old Estonian CS:GO player who has been representing Mousesports for over four years. Additionally, it is his first professional team to play Counter-Strike.

During a recent appearance on HLTV Confirmed podcast, Ropz talked about their performances in IEM Cologne 2021, the roster changes, and his new teammate Frederik “acoR” Gyldstrand.

Mousesports has been having lots of ups and downs for the last five years. Sometimes they are performing as the top-tier team while winning lots of tournaments whereas sometimes they struggle to qualify.

Back in 2019, they brought up a perfect roster that features Özgür “woxic” Eker and Finn “karrigan” Andersen. They played really well in the early stage of 2019, but they started falling apart in 2020.

First, Woxic left the roster in summer 2020, then they parted ways with Karrigan as well as Chris “chrisJ” de Jong. For 2021, they had a brand new roster featuring Frederik “acoR” Gyldstrand, Aurimas “Bymas” Pipiras, and Christopher “dexter” Nong.

In the conversation, Ropz revealed that they actually had eyes on acoR back in the days when Woxic left the roster and said that it took a long to get him because there were some problems with MAD Lions.

Ropz said:

“The thing with acoR, he was actually the player we were looking for since the beginning of removing Woxic. So he had been in our list since then. It took long time to get him.

There were some problems with MAD Lions and getting them to negotiate in a deal with getting acoR. In the end, it took half a year almost.”
