OG, no not OpTic Gaming, has finally expanded it’s Esports offering by adding onto their back to back International winning Dota 2 team, by assembling a brand new CSGO lineup made of stars and misfits.

The team, comprised of major winner Nathan “NBK” Schmitt, former ENCE IGL Aleksi “Aleksib” Virolanien, both were kicked out of their respective former teams and reportedly have been looking to team up together for a while now, have been joined by the Danish star Valdemar "valde" Bjørn Vangså, Issa "ISSAA" Murad and Mateusz “mantuu” Wilczewski, yeah… we don’t know either.

The UK/Polish AWPer has been showing his skills over in Germany with ALTERNATE aTTaX, albeit against lesser competition, has boasted a 1.46 rating in the past 3 months.

What is believed to have halted the announcement is the potential VAC ban of Elias “Jamppi” Olkkonen, the Finnish AWPer was mixed over in Sweden at the weekend for Dreamhack Winter, putting up a measly 0.96 after facing Heroic, Godsent and CR4ZY, maybe it was for the best that they didn’t pick him up?

The man everyone will be turning their eye to is Valde, the former North man was originally “benched” for former OpTic player René "cajunb" Borg. Having been out of action since the start of October, he will be the one in the limelight.

Aside from mantuu, the last official any of these players boasted was the man above, Valde. NBK’s last match was in early September having been benched in favour of Richard “Shox” Papillon, Aleksib was also benched around the same time but carried on playing with the Ence squad at the Starladder Berlin Major, where they made it to the playoffs before being eliminated by the new 100 Thieves team.

The new OG lineup is as followed:

Nathan “NBK” Schmitt
Aleksi “Aleksib” Virolanien
Valdemar "valde" Bjørn Vangså
Issa "ISSAA" Murad
Mateusz “mantuu” Wilczewski
