sergej's younger brother to stand in for MOUZ NXT
MOUZ have invited 15-year-old Finnish player Jimi "Jimpphat" Salo as a stand-in for their academy team, MOUZ NXT member Dorian "xertioN" Berman announced on Twitter.
Berman's tweet was published after MOUZ NXT, along with Jimpphat, defeated GamerLegion in Pinnacle Cup III. Following the meeting, Salo's rating added up to 1.04, the fourth-best in the team.
In addition to being a young Finnish prodigy with no experience of playing at a professional level, the player is also a younger brother of former ENCE player Jere "sergej" Salo. Prior to joining MOUZ NXT, Jimpphat represented such teams as SJ and Conquer, which only showed up on a national level.
At the time of publication of the material, none of MOUZ representatives commented on Jimpphat's prospects in the team. It is known, however, that he will help his team at OMEN WGR European Challenge 2022, which will be held from April 3 to 27.
MOUZ NXT had to find a fifth member of the roster after the organization promoted Jon "JDC" de Castro to the main team a few days ago, where the German replaced Nathan "NBK-" Schmitt.
