It has been announced that the OpTic Gaming organisation have made the signing of HS for their roster. He is coming from the PENTA Sports team and this means that the last open position in their CS:GO roster has now been filled by the Estonian after many weeks of speculation as to who else would be joining the team.
This latest roster move was announced by the team captain mixwell and the fans found out about it via the OpTic Gaming regularly scheduled show that is titled Vision. It is a new team that has been put together in recent weeks and they are all veterans of the world of CS:GO.
It is believed that GHS is going to leave his home in Europe and join up with his new teammates in North America where they will be playing online in the ESL Pro League.
Once they follow along with the ESL ruling on the matter, OpTic Gaming will be allowed to continue to compete in the ESL for the rest of the season. This ruling stated that the organisation needs to have a documented plan and there is a need for them to play at least ten of their matches while based in the region of North America.
This comes after a week of controversy as many believed that OpTic Gaming would in fact lose their license for the league as a result of the roster changes they had been making. This is due to them having an all European based team and it was thought that they would be blocked from competing any more in the North American ESL League.
They also managed to lose out on their place for this week’s Dreamhack event being held in Malmo, Sweden as a result of the team changes. In order to retain their place for the event they needed to have three of their original five roster players in action who had been invited to the event. The folks at the Green Wall will be keeping their fingers crossed that no more mishaps will come their way and they will be able to meet all of the requirements that have been laid out by the ESL.
In other news, the world of CS:GO has now learned that the WarOwl is set to take a break from content creation. He is up there with the best creators of content when it comes to the world of CS:GO so his loss will be felt throughout the community.
It is said that he will not be making any videos or streaming on Twitch for the foreseeable future as he wants to redevelop his plan and strategy for his content. He has more than one million subscribers on his YouTube channel alone and he has helped thousands of players improve their playing abilities with the popular game.
He says that burnout has played a factor in his decision as he has racked up more than 5,000 hours of playing time on the game. There have also been issues with YouTube monetization as of late which will not have helped matters.
