CSGO: OG reportedly planning to bench NBK from roster


Professional teams in CSGO is constantly changing rosters, but OG has been able to stick to its initial five man lineup for 14 months. The team was set up in 2019, headed by ENCE’s Aleksi “Aleksib” Virolainen, and has not changed since then. After months of underwearing results, this may be about to change.


OG seeks to replace the fragger NBK 

According to Vakarm, OG seeks to replace the entry fragger NBK after early elimination of CSGO IEM Katowice 2021. Despite his experience and reputation, some of the French players have been blamed for OG’s mediocre results to this point. His gunning skills remain undisputed, but if these reports are true, he’s just not up to the standards of one of the most successful sports organizations.

The news that OG NBK may be leaving comes as a surprise, given Aleksib’s recent interview with HLTV, which discussed logistical problems with Issa ‘ISSAA’ Murad due to ping and regional differences. The performance of ISAA has decreased significantly since the move to an online format, but the team may be committed to keeping it alive as events start to show on the horizon.

NBK played a crucial role in OG CSGO roster

In CSGO esports, OG had a great start, powering within one year into the top 10 of the world rankings. OG NBK played a crucial role, with an average rating of 1.02.

However, the team has been in a downturn since taking second place in Flashpoint Season 2, which is causing the team to damage control. The team started in 2021 with a subpar showing in cs summit 7. Quick elimination from the BLAST Premier Spring Groups and IEM Katowice led to a change in OG’s stagnant roster.

This will be the first OG CSGO roster change since its inception, if the reports are true. At a prompt time, the organization is making changes. Many talented CSGO esport players are waiting to be picked up by an organization after roster changes in Fnatic, the dissolution of MIBR, and endless struggles in Cloud9. If OG is in need of a makeover, now might be the best time to do so.
