CS: GO — Mousesports complete their six-man roster with Bymas

Aurimas “Bymas⁠” Pipiras is a 17-year-old Lithuanian player who made a name for himself as a stand-in in FaZe Clan. Not tied at the end of his interim mission, he became the sixth player of mousesports.

CS: GO — Mousesports complete their six-man roster with Bymas

Three short months after getting noticed by the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive community, Aurimas “Bymas⁠” Pipiras decided to join mousesports, which will now operate with a six-player roster.

Two of the organization veterans, namely Finn “ karrigan ⁠” Andersen and Chris “ chrisJ⁠ ” de Jong, turned 30 this year; almost twice the age of their new teammate. They should be able to bring him a lot of experience — and why not replace them on the day of their retirement...
