New Star Power for Squeak arrives in Brawl Stars

Published

on

Brawl Stars’ latest Brawler, Squeak, got a new Star Power today. His second Star Power is called Super Sticky and it gives players a buff on his super.

Squeak’s super is called Big Blob. As the name suggests, it throws a big blob of goo that explodes after a short duration. The blast sends six smaller “sticky blombs” in all directions around it.

The new Star Power empowers these smaller sticky blombs. When a player equips Super Sticky, the smaller blobs of goo will also slow down enemy Brawlers for four seconds.

Super Sticky can be unlocked by opening Brawl Boxes after you’ve collected enough trophies to reach power nine on Squeak.

Squeak’s other Star Power is called Chain Reaction. This increases the damage of the sticky blomb’s explosion by 10 percent for every Brawler that’s in its radius. While Super Sticky is good for area control, Chain Reaction is the ideal choice for players looking to deal more damage.

Squeak is an alien Brawler who was released in Brawl Stars last month. He’s a part of Colonel Ruffs’ Star Force and evolved from the drool of his toys.

Mousesports unveils academy CS:GO roster

Published

on

Mousesports has put together a new international academy CS:GO roster, the German organization announced today.

The team, called mouz NXT, features former Izako Boars Polish duo Kamil “siuhy” Szkaradek and Hubert “szejn” Światły, the German rifler Jon “JDC” de Castro, former Budapest Five Hungarian player Ádám “torzsi” Torzsás, and 16-year-old Israeli Dorian “xertioN” Berman.

The five young talents will be coached by Dennis “sycrone” Nielsen, a former Danish CS:GO in-game leader who played for organizations such as North Academy, Fragsters, Sprout, and Copenhagen Flames. He was last seen playing for Tricked in February and will be taking on the head coaching role for the first time in his career.

“We’re happy to finally share our latest project with you,” mousesports said. “We will provide the most promising talents in CS:GO with the same resources, technology, and know-how as our main roster, and challenge them to become the stars of tomorrow.”

Mousesports’ CEO Stefan Wendt said in the announcement video that the organization has continuously signed young and unproven talents for the past 19 years and the montage shows some of the successful examples, such as Antonio “cyx” Daniloski in Counter-Strike 1.6 and Robin “ropz” Kool and David “frozen” Čerňanský, who are the current stars of mousesports’ CS:GO division.

“Supporting and developing young players has always been on our DNA,” Wendt said. Sycrone aknowledged that mouz NXT will be closely working with the main team since the organization wants to get the young players ready for the big stage.

With mouz NXT, mousesports joins other esports organizations that have invested in young talent, such as Natus Vincere, Ninjas in Pyjamas, and Team Spirit.

LEC power rankings: 2021 Summer Split week one

Published

on

The LEC shifted pretty heavily after week one of the 2021 Summer Split, with several teams rising from the dust to post shocking records. Misfits and Astralis surprisingly dominated the conversation during the split’s first week, while the recently-established triple threat of MAD Lions, G2 Esports, and Rogue quietly stewed in the background, all finishing with respectable winning records on the week. 

But there are eight more weeks on the board for the LEC and it’d be downright foolish to prematurely judge the landscape of the region after just three games. Still, the standings are moving and so are our power rankings.

Here’s how our rankings stand after the first week of play in the 2021 LEC Summer Split. 

Rank Team Rank change
1) MAD Lions
2) G2 Esports
3) Rogue
4) Misfits +3
5) Astralis +5
6) Fnatic -1
7) Team Vitality -3
8) Schalke 04
9) Excel Esports
10) SK Gaming -4

Oof, what’s going on here?: Excel Esports, SK Gaming

Excel being in this section of our power rankings isn’t that surprising. This organization has never quite been able to stick the landing at the beginning of the season and the 2021 Summer Split has been no exception to that rule so far. Their performance can’t exactly be called shaky or sloppy or uncoordinated, though. Their problem is more that they never even seem to get started in their games. They have the lowest total of deaths in the league, according to Oracle’s Elixir, and also the lowest number of kills. Their games are bloodless but not in the methodical, zero-kill but with every tower on the map taken style associated with the heyday of the LCK. 

Excel also have the shortest average game time in the LEC, according to Oracle’s Elixir, an average largely brought down by two 25-minute, one-sided stomps. Excel are going to need some proactivity, and find it fast, if they want to hone in on that playoff spot that’s eluded them for so long. 

SK, on the other hand, are in a different boat. Their games are, on average, the longest in the LEC, according to Oracle’s Elixir. Every single loss could, at one point in the game, have been a victory—something that can’t be said for the team they share this tier with (sorry, Excel). SK’s problem come in their execution around major objectives, something that can fairly easily be explained by the fact that their jungler is off-role and their support hasn’t played consistently in the LEC since 2017. Their current record looks a little grim, but if SK can clean up their teamfighting, the bones of the roster are still strong. 

Still finding their way: Fnatic, Team Vitality, Schalke 04

Most European League of Legends fans expected Schalke 04 to regress this split after losing their prized mid-jungle duo in Abbedagge and Gilius—and a 1-2 opening week record didn’t necessarily inspire much to alter their placement in the rankings. 

But Fnatic and Vitality saw their ranks change extensively this past weekend, largely thanks to the overachieving performances of Misfits and Astralis but also due to poor opening week performances of their own. Vitality, in particular, came in as the pre-split sweethearts only to drop two of their first three games last weekend. If Vitality are going to sneak away with a Worlds berth later this year, they’ll have to beat their main competitors—namely teams like Rogue and Misfits, both of whom Vitality lost to in week one. 

The same goes for Fnatic, who will need to learn how to close out big leads (like the one it had against Misfits last week) if they want to steal a shot at Worlds contention away from teams like Vitality, Rogue, and others. 

Thankfully, we won’t have to wait long until these two teams find themselves at each other’s throats. The midsection of the LEC could be decided by an early-split matchup between Fnatic and Vitality today. Expect that game to feature a fierce battle in the jungle between former teammates Selfmade and Bwipo trying to settle into new situations of their own. Selfmade is finding himself tasked with turning around a newly formed roster, while Bwipo is still settling into an entirely new role after playing his full career in the top lane position. 

Surprise of the summer?: Misfits, Astralis

Misfits and Astralis probably weren’t two names that you were expecting so high up in the regular season standings after week one, but both teams performed well enough to have them standing taller than many of the competition. The biggest question, though, is which team of the two can maintain their form as we head into the rest of the first half of the season?

On one hand, Misfits’ roster has always had a ton of potential due to their youth and explosiveness but just lacked consistency due to inexperience. Their mid laner Vetheo stayed aggressive on picks like Akali and Viktor in week one and leads the league with 22 kills and only two deaths, according to Oracle’s Elixir.

Razork also had his hand in a lot of the team’s success, leading all LEC players with an 83.7 percent kill participation percentage. Even though their 3-0 start was impressive, they did face off against three teams that recently made big roster switches. As a result, their game against Rogue will be their first true test against a bonafide championship contender. If they can perform just as well against one of EU’s best, then we can start to place more trust in the Misfits.

When looking at Astralis, however, this team might be punching well above their weight at the moment. The team’s strength of schedule was pretty favorable for them in week one and almost each player had a significantly bad early game through the first week. They might have taken down Excel and SK, but they’ll be facing off against the G2 war machine this week. Unless they shock the world, we’ll probably see this squad quickly fall back down to Earth through weeks two and three.

The trio stands tall: MAD Lions, G2 Esports, Rogue

The LEC’s top three teams on paper all finished with 2-1 records after the first week of play. And while MAD Lions, Rogue, and G2 Esports are all tied for second place right now, it shouldn’t be long until the league balances itself out and these three contenders shuffle back toward the very top. 

This week, G2 and Rogue will face off in another matchup between the league’s top three, setting up a potential shift in the standings. While those two teams beat up on each other, though, MAD Lions could take the opportunity to be back on top of the league pretty quickly. This week, the team has two grooved-down-the-middle matchups against Excel and Schalke 04—games that the defending champions should win by a mile. 

Last week, G2 managed to win the first head-to-head matchup between the three teams that many fans assume will clinch the LEC’s three Worlds berths. But with teams like Misfits, Vitality, and Fnatic expected to breathe down the top three’s necks all split long, G2, Rogue, and MAD Lions will most certainly need to watch their backs. No road to the finish line is going to be easy, especially if last week’s games are going to be used as an indicator.
