Hold Mouse One entered the first Invite Season as one of the most unknown team to compete at the invite level. After winning a Call of Duty online tournament, and having a history of success in previous games, Hold Mouse One set out to be the best team in North America. Since then they have become a community favorite.
Due to their success, Hold Mouse One has secured the sponsorship from Curse. Curse is known for sponsoring teams outside of the FPS genre. With teams and a website network focused on MMO's and MOBA's, Curse is looking to expand into the FPS scene. They most recently have been seen hosting a King of the Hill tournament on a weekly basis, but will now move into sponsoring one of the top teams in North America.
The team can bee seen next at the ESEA LAN Finals starting on November 17th for Counter-Strike:GO. At the LAN Finals they will feature their five players from the regular season. Post LAN Finals Zach "tm-" Miller will depart from the team and former Dynamic player Todd "anger_" Williams will suit up as the teams fifth. Williams is currently still playing for Dynamic in CS:S.
After the ESEA LAN Finals the team will travel together to Sweden to compete at DreamHack Winter. While the updated tournament list has yet to be announced, the team has confirmed that they will be attending and did receive an Invite. This means that two teams from North America will be taking on the top teams from across Europe. Most recently at ESWC, the Americans of Area51 were able to take third. DreamHack will kick off November 22nd.
