OpTic Gaming has signed former CLG player Tarik "tarik" Celik, taking the place of Peter "stanislaw" Jarguz.

The Turkish-American star has been sitting idle with CLG since July, when both himself and team coach Faruk "pita" Pita announced they would be leaving the team's starting line-up, with "tarik" taking the opportunity to focus more on his streaming career. 

However it seems that tarik is already back into the professional scene once again today as OpTic Gaming have announced that they have signed the player to take the place of Peter "stanislaw" Jarguz, who will be leaving the team effective immediately. OpTic has been experiencing a dry spell in results in recent months, with their last notable achievement being their first place finish at the ESL One Cologne Americas minor. The organization had the following to say about the changes:

Earlier this week OpTic Gaming revealed the new home for the Counter-Strike team on Vision and today we are proud to welcome a new member to the roster.

As of today OpTic Gaming will be releasing Stanislaw and moving forward, will be competing with Tarik who is making the transition from Counter Logic Gaming where he was both a player and entertainer. Tarik will be making his debut in front of the GreenWall tonight in their ESL Pro League match vs Team Liquid. Be sure to tune into the match and give Tarik a warm OpTic Gaming welcome and if you want to learn more be sure to check out his player profile on YouTube.

OpTic Gaming would like to wish Stanislaw all the best and thank him for the time he has spent competing for the GreenWall.

OpTic now has the following roster:
Canada Damian "daps" Steele
Canada Keith "NAF" Markovic
Spain Óscar "mixwell" Cañellas
United States Will "RUSH" Wierzba
United States Tarik "tarik" Celik 


Do you feel stanislaw was the weakest link in OpTic's roster?
