OG down to two members
After an amazing year in which they reached rank one world wide,, OG had a very disappointing run at The International 6 finishing in the 9th-12th position which triggers massive roster shuffles for the European team.
Formed exactly one year ago by the two lifetime friends Johan 'N0tail' Sundstein and Tal 'Fly' Aizik, initially under the (monkey) Business tag and then later OG, the European squad that took the competitive scene by storm is once again back to the drawing board, with only Fly and N0tail left to rebuild the roster.
Although no OG players have changed yet their status on the Majors Registration List, the team made an official announcement on their Facebook page, immediately followed by a stream from David 'MoonMeander' Tan who answered a few questions regarding his kick from OG.
From the three players leaving OG, Moon is the only one who was removed from the roster, Amer 'Miracle-' Al-Barkawi and Andreas Franck 'Cr1t-' Nielsen choosing to try their luck elsewhere for the upcoming season.
According to Moon’s words during the stream, he will most probably play with a North American team in the feature but he hasn’t disclosed any information on Cr1t’s or Miracle-’s new teams. However, he gave a small hint, pointing at pub star Mohammed 'Attacker' Almheiri, who fits Miracle-s profile in some ways and who might get a spot in OG: “Attacker might be an option for OG because Miracle- left and they need someone like him” Moon said.
Amer 'Miracle-' Al-Barkawi statement:
Andreas Franck 'Cr1t-' Nielsen statement:
In their year together, Fly, N0tail, Moon, Miracle and Cr1t achieved amazing results, winning both Frankfurt and Manila Majors, DreamLeague Season 4 and 5, ESL One Frankfurt 2016 and finishing on 3rd position at EPICENTER and on 2nd place at The Summit 5.
