They're only testing him out though.

Danish CS:GO team North has officially revealed that they're testing out Óscar 'Mixwell' Cañellas in their CS:GO team for the DreamHack Open Valencia (which starts tomorrow), a decision that was made by coach Alexander 'Ave' Holdt who wants to "test new dynamics before an important autumn season," as the post says.

"I have been looking to change up things, inside and outside the game, for some time and with the player break coming up after Valencia, I thought that now would be a good time to do a test-run with an International lineup" Ave said.

Mixwell will be replacing Daniel 'Mertz' Mertz for Valencia, and Director of Esports Jonas 'Whimp' Svendsen had this to say on the decision:

"Óscar is an experienced and skilled player, and I am happy that he will be playing with us in Valencia. The trend in rosters is moving towards a more International outlook, and in our current situation, Alexander and I felt that the last event before the player break, would be a good time to change up the dynamics and see how the players react to a new structure".

"We have an important autumn coming up, with a lot of big tournaments, including the Major, and with the lack of consistency that we have been showing we can't leave any stones unturned. I want to see how the team fares in a different setting and to break up the current dynamics."

Can Mixwell fit into this team?
