Turkish star player Ozgur "woxic" Eker who was picked up by Cloud9 from his previous team mousesports after being offered a deal worth $1,365,000 recently revealed why he was benched by his previous team in an interview with Esporin.
Woxic Reveals The Reason Behind Mousesports Benching Him
According to the player his performance was not the reason because of which he was benched, which seems to clear up a lot of doubts that the community had in general as woxic was actually performing better than a lot of other players on the team.
In his last ten tournaments that he played with mousesports woxic only had two bad performances at ESL One Cologne 2020 Europe and DreamHack Masters Spring 2020. Other than that he was doing fairly well if not extremely good.
He further went on to reveal that the decision to bench him from mousesports’ active lineup could be attributed to the fact that he had himself requested “to be benched 2 or 3 times beforehand,” hence in a way it was “both a personal and an executive decision.”
This also helps clear another speculation about woxic being benched due to his toxic behavior, against which the Turk had defended himself in the past.
He went on to speak about many other things like the recent Stewie match schedule controversy, his thoughts on his latest contract details being made public by Cloud9, his constant VISA issues, and more.
