WELL MET is no more!

With HasuObs retirement from MouseSports, last week, it was only a matter of time until he has been acquired by another organization. In his farewell letter he stated that he has decided to finish his RTS career and fully focus on HOTS, but that means parting ways with MouseSports, and playing under the name of different organization.
No wonder that Heroes of the Storm team with famous RTS players, in its roster, have been acquired by Roccat. The performance of team, in past few months, has been incredible so it was logical that they will be sponsored by some solid organization in the future.
