After a disappointing start to 2020, OG is about to face EG in their opening match of BLAST Premier: Spring 2020 Regular Season today, and it looks like Aleksi “Aleksib” Virolainen will be leading his side full-time as an IGL for the following tournament, according to (Finnish website).

In an interview with the Finnish website Aleksib says that “the team is experimenting with different things to see what works longer and what doesn't.”

He goes on to reveal that during ICE Challenge 2020 it was Nathan “NBK-” Schmitt who was captaining the CT side for OG with him taking over during T side. “Now, however, the team has returned to its original plan, with me distributing orders as both T and CT.”

OG put up a good show in their first tournament cs_summit 5, but fell flat during ICE Challenge 2020, only managing to defeat ENCE in their opening match before getting eliminated.

Aleksib said that the team had been bootcamping till today since their loss in London, as he hopes to find victory today “Let's start tonight's game and hope for a 2-0 win.”

He goes on to talk about some of their ICE Challenge matchups, followed by his analysis of the BLAST group, and a bit about Casper “ruggah” Due’s coaching style, saying that the coach doesn't enforce stuff on them to "change everything to suit his own style," listening to everyone, and pointing out the flaws.

"The more you play and work together, the better the cooperation between me and him will become."

Let’s see how OG goes up against world number five Evil Genuises, who will be playing their first match of the year tonight.
