OG completes CS:GO roster by signing two new players, NEOFRAG and F1KU, ahead of the second half of the competitive season.
The players are a replacement for the Danish duo of valde and niko, as OG sets its aim to qualify for the IEM Rio Major 2022.
The revamped OG roster will be seen in action later tonight in a showmatch against MIBR, followed by three consecutive tournaments in the month of June.

OG has not had a great competitive season so far, failing to get an opportunity to compete in IEM Katowice 2022, ESL Pro League Season 15, and unable to qualify for the PGL Antwerp Major 2022.

In order to turn things around in the second half of the season, the organization decided to undergo a few changes like removing both Valdemar "valde" Vangså and Nikolaj "niko" Kristensen from its active CS:GO roster.

To replace the two players, OG has now announced the signing of Adam "NEOFRAG" Zouhar and Maciej “F1KU” Miklas from SINNERS Esports and AGO respectively. With an aim set at qualifying for the IEM Rio Major 2022, OG is ready to give its best with a revamped lineup.

OG signs two new players to complete CS:GO roster for second half of the 2022 season

OG has signed two new players in place of valde and niko to revamp its CS:GO roster well ahead of the IEM Rio Major 2022 which is scheduled to take place from 31st October to 13th November later this year.

The two new players joining the team are NEOFRAG and F1KU from Czech Republic and Poland respectively, with OG now fielding players from four different countries.

The former makes his way into the roster over from Czech team SINNERS Esports, a compelling prospect in the current European tier-two circuit, while the latter has been signed over from AGO with whom he has competed in two seasons of ESL Pro League.

F1KU issued a statement thanking the AGO organization and expressing his excitement in joining the OG lineup.

After almost three years spent in AGO, I’m leaving the organisation to continue my esports career in OG Esports. I joined AGO when I was 16 years old, and I have never played professionally before. They have believed in me since the first day, and they have taught me everything. I had the chance to play with experienced players, which helped me progress and develop myself as a player. I’ll always be grateful for that chance, as I wouldn’t be in the place I’m now without AGO. I want to say thank you to every person I met in AGO, You’ll always be an essential part of my life. Now, it’s time for the next step in my career. I’m incredibly excited for the future. Joining OG is an incredible opportunity for me as I’ll be able to compete among the best in the world. Thank you for that chance, I’ll do my absolute best to make every fan of OG proud of our team!"

Both these riflers bring with them a breath of fresh air as OG continues to recruit promising players, providing them the pedestal to take off and convert their potential into something promising.

The organization believes that with an experienced coaching staff at their disposal along with a solid base the two players have created for themselves, OG will be able to reach the next level, setting their eyes on qualifying for the IEM Rio Major 2022.

This revamped CS:GO roster created by OG will be seen in action later today during a showmatch against MIBR at 23:00 (IST), followed by three consecutive tournaments in the month of June including BLAST Premier: Spring Finals 2022.

OG CS:GO lineup is as follows,

  • Nemanja “nexa” Isaković

  • Mateusz “mantuu” Wilczewski

  • Shahar “flameZ” Shushan

  • Maciej “F1KU” Miklas

  • Adam “NEOFRAG” Zouhar

  • Casper “ruggah” Due - Coach
