OpTic change stanislaw for tarik

OpTic gaming have released Peter "stanislaw" Jarguz and brought in former CLG player Tarik "tarik" Celik, the organization announced on their website.

Tarik "tarik" Celik has been without a home since his departure from CLG in early July, at a point when he decided to take a break from competitions for the remainder of 2016 to focus on streaming.

His break has been cut short however, as he returned to active duty sooner than expected, joining OpTic at the expense of Peter "stanislaw" Jarguz.


tarik cut his break short to join OpTic 

OpTic have made the move despite showing improvement since the addition of Oscar "mixwell" Cañellas, most importantly winning the Americas Minor and qualifying for Cologne at the offline qualifier.

At the major itself however they finished last in their group, consisting of NiP, Natus Vincere and FlipSid3, and also ended up in 15th-16th place at ELEAGUE.

"Today it was announced that I would be replaced in the starting line-up of Optic CS:GO with Tarik from CLG. Obviously this wasn't my decision, and they did what they felt like was best for the future of the team, and I wish them luck for the future." Jarguz said in a statement, the full version of which you can find here.

"This is where I assume the team had other ideas and started to think about changes that they felt were necessary to take them to the next level. I believe that with Tarik they will do well, as he is a fantastic player. I just wish they had told me two weeks ago when they first approached him instead of me learning it from a third party source, as now the season has started and my options will be limited."

OpTic now have:

Canada Damian "daps" Steele
Canada Keith "NAF" Markovic
Spain Oscar "mixwell" Cañellas
United States William "RUSH" Wierzba
United States Tarik "tarik" Celik 

Their debut with the new player will come later today, in an ESL Pro League Season 4 series versus Liquid, scheduled to start at 04:00.

thats just 2016, tarik is a brickhead who needs a good igl to guide him. Thats why he shat the bed when fns left. RIP TSM Tarik dream

no he did not. but If you watch both, you can easily say that xantares will win 80% of aim duels.
2016-08-21 00:38
actually i cant say this easily. xantares is traffic player we all agree this but tarik has major on his career more than 1. thats not about aim duels

EZ 4 ENCE??? Seriously tho, I can see this new team giving Tarik newfound motivation. He is a very talented player like shroud,and if he cant realize that potential in Optic then he will forever be known as another shroud, and nobody wants to be that.
2016-08-20 23:25
LOL, tarik has shown literally nothing against tier 1 teams in big international LANs
2016-08-20 23:23
Tarik is undeniably a very talented player who has a lot of potential. If he was surrounded by players who were of equal skill it would be much easier for him to play his best.
2016-08-20 23:31
i always thought skill also has something to do with having a brain and as we all know tarik is the dumbest pro alive. no good igl = no good tarik.
2016-08-21 00:55

Good for Tarik (i don't think any "competitive" pro, not the Maikele/Skytten type of players who can go months without a team - and when they join it's ex-Winterfox xD should stay 6 months without a team) who could find a team and not waste 6 months, like he would have done if he had waited 2017 to join a team. Not sure it's that good for Optic though.

always thought stanislaw was one of the good guys, especially in this age of IGLs. Explain?
2016-08-20 23:31
Daps was always the IGL, who told you otherwise? I mean some people here think stanislaw was the igl who tf told you that, he's just bad with no excuse at least Daps has excuse he is IGL so no one expects him to be good.

2016-08-20 23:54
wow that's a hugh upgrade for OpTiC! GL :)
2016-08-20 23:55
Looks like we got Spanish tarik and NA tarik on one team
2016-08-20 23:55
Good move imo, I don't think Tarik is very good but he's better than stanislaw.
2016-08-21 00:03
So sad for stan and OpTiC, both losing so much with this change. TSM and OpTiC are teams that had great potential but are losing it or in OpTiC's case, throwing it away. =(

2016-08-21 00:20
Good luck playing with toxic as fuck NAF... Everyone on that team hates each other.
2016-08-21 00:20
like in all others NA teams
2016-08-21 00:27
Stanislaw actually had a brain, unlike tarik Optic going full firepower with this move. Could just end up backfiring.
2016-08-21 00:27
Let's goooo tarik gonna enjoy that huge ass house
2016-08-21 00:29

2016-08-21 01:27
shitty move TIMINGWISE, at least let your guy have a chance of joining another team for the upcoming seasons.
2016-08-21 01:32
If there are two US players, two Canadians, and a Spaniard, what will OpTic's team flag be?

2016-08-21 09:49
This was bound to happen, stanislaw is the most in-consistent player on optic. I would say stan is better than tarik gamesense wise, but tarik is better fragging wise, what I think optic is looking for, I don't even know if tarik will fit in with optic's playstyle, time would tell, mixwell adapted well, only time would tell about tarik.

yea remember when stan was lurking for optic and he was so inconsistent? now naf is lurking and he is inconsistent, he's a good player though, no reason to drop him, plus he can awp
