Dosia and Mou to Form New CS:GO Team Under Forward Gaming
The CIS legends are all set to compete once again.
CS:GO Major winners, Mikhail "Dosia" Stolyarov and Rüstem "mou" Telepov, are all set for a return to the competitive circuit once again with a new roster. The experienced duo have already set a team which consists of three other little-known players and it seems that this lineup will be signed by the North American esports organization, Forward Gaming.
A few days ago, Dosia during an interview with the popular Russian streamer Alexey "PCH3LK1N" Pchelkin on the regional livestreaming platform WASD, revealed the details about his upcoming CS:GO project which is currently facing significant delays due to difficulties with the registration of the team.
Major winners Dosia and Mou all to compete in CS:GO once again with a new roster
Dosia and mou are a legendary duo from the CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States) region who were part of the historic Gambit Esports roster that won the PGL Major Kraków 2017.
Over the next couple of years their performance slowly declined and they started competing in the regional tier-two scene with different CS:GO teams. They were last seen competing in 2021, Dosia in December with a team called 'Free TON Team', and mou in October with the Kazakhstani esports organization K23.
After a break of roughly seven and nine months respectively, Dosia on 10th July announced plans for their new CS:GO project during a Russian interview that he had attended.
"We don't have a name for the team yet, but we already have an organization. We have not yet made a final decision. Not the players, but the organization, that is. It's American Forward Gaming. It had one of the strongest Dota 2 lineups in 2018-2019," revealed Dosia, "Moreover, our guys also played there. Very famous guys played there and now the club reached out to us. It's not a secret, but now a lot of delays and difficulties can arise with the registration of the team."
