After a not-so-subtle tweet by Craciunescu "ComeWithMe" Alexandru saying "OPPA SEATTLE", the rumors started to flow indicating that mousesports were somehow invited to The International. In a following tweet he indicated that they were invited as a backup team, which means that in case a certain team is not able to attain a visa, or has been disqualified for any reason; mousesports will step in and take their slot.
This is great news for mousesports and their fans as it gives them another chance of being part of The International after finishing 3rd in the qualifiers.
Statement by Florian 'PaisY' Schmedes to JoinDOTA
"Speaking for me and my team, we are very happy to be considered as a backup team for The International. Despite the defeat in the TI2 Qualifiers, we did not bury our heads in the sand. We kept on to work hard and did not lose our dedication to improve as a team. Everyone within the team knows that our current roster has a huge talent and potential and even though we have been working together for not that of a long time, we have shown great performances ever since. A big thanks goes out to all our fans!""
