Mounira loves to start her day feeling energized with a smoothie or fruit and pancakes. When she takes a break from CS: GO and the stress that comes with it, Dobie would casually play PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds.
Dobie had a nickname that was similar to a friend who played League of Legends. They made a dare between them, that Mounira would go by the name, Goosebreeder and she did kept it through her pro career. Another interesting false story that has gone around was that Mounira was raised in a geese breeding farm in Canada.
Where it all began:
Mounira always loved playing video games in her younger days, thanks to her brother who introduced her to gaming. As competitive as she was, Dobie used to play Soldier Front and League of Legends for a number of years competing with her older brother and her friends.
She came across Counter-Strike: Global Offensive in 2013 practicing casually for a couple of months. As she was getting better as a player in CS she decided to take it up seriously around May 2014, streaming a few games online showing off her fighting skills and strategies. Seeing the potential of becoming a professional player full time, a good friend of hers recommended her to Ubinited and they gave her a trial. She joined them in 2015, competing at international and local CS: GO events, developing her skills.
Team Dignitas is an esports gaming company that is based in the United Kingdom. It all started with two teams that specialized in Battlefield 1942 to be successful in gaming events and secured their first sponsor. From then on, Dignitas have expanded to have more teams that compete in different games like Heroes of the Storm, League of Legends, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds and Smite.
Team Dignitas female CS: GO squad was created in July 2016 where they acquired the Selfless Gaming female roster. The squad consists of pro players like EMUHLEET as captain, artStar, rain, Goosebreeder and CAth who will take their gaming Counter Strike skills to the next level. They usually practice 5 days a week for about six hours each, reviewing demos, practice their aims and shooting as well as playing ESEA matches. This kind of training is what keeps DIG female squad motivated in between CS tournaments.
