NBK- returns to CS:GO with MOUZ
With MOUZ, NBK- will compete with a professional CS:GO team for the first time since he announced he would be making the switch to competitive VALORANT in June of 2021. He hopes to elevate MOUZ to world-class status, just like many of the teams he has played for in the past.
“I am extremely confident that we can make all of the MOUZ fans proud again,” NBK- said in a promotional video. “I have brought many teams to the top and I am ready to do it again.”
