The tragedy of mousesports
In 2010, the worst thing possible happened, when one of their players died (Antonio "cyx" Daniloski) in a car accident on the way to a tournament. cyx was one of the most legendary players in the game, and his death was devastating. Then mousesports decided to retire the rest of the team.
But to every fan's pleasure, mousesports chose to make a comeback to CS:GO in 2012.
