jasonR & hazed to stay with OpTic

OpTic have decided on their fifth for the time being, with Jason "jasonR" Ruchelski set to lead the team at upcoming events. It has also been confirmed that James "hazed" Cobb will be staying with the team as coach.

In the latest episode of Vision, OpTic's documentary show, Oscar "mixwell" Cañellas confirmed that Jason "jasonR" Ruchelski and James "hazed" Cobb will be attending tournaments with the team at least until the player break.

OpTic are sticking with jasonR for the upcoming events

That means that jasonR will be playing at the ESL Pro League Season 5 Finals in Dallas, ESL One Cologne, the Major Qualifier and potentially at the Major. After a brief stint as a player at IEM Sydney, hazed will be returning to the coaching position for the upcoming period.

In the video, it was made clear that the duo is only confirmed for the next couple of months, with OpTic possibly open to other options after the Major.

OpTic are now:

United States William "RUSH" Wierzba
Canada Keith "NAF" Markovic
United States Tarik "tarik" Celik
Spain Oscar "mixwell" Cañellas
Canada Jason "jasonR" Ruchelski

United States James "hazed" Cobb (coach)

I belive that mixwell is playing great, maybe he was unlucky somethimes but he is play very good ... so I dont agree about that.
2017-05-24 13:58
I dont think he will get kicked. I want to see him and rush leave for another lineup without jasonR where they might actually win something

JasonR is bad, they should get Daps because he used to play with Optic and is a talented IGL.
2017-05-24 01:59
for what i've seen he is pretty capable and has a personality that goes well with optic members
2017-05-24 02:22
Jason is way better than daps
2017-05-24 03:09
JasonR isn't that bad....

jasonr not to good but im guessing that there are not too many other good options without a crazy buy out
2017-05-24 03:08
They could probably manage to get sick or someone else for pretty cheap

no way dude that buyout would be ridiculous they were just recently signed with misfits
2017-05-24 03:42
What you guys both don't realise is that they are roster locked for ESL and major qualifier has its own complications. As sick is playing for misfits in the minor, he can't play for any other team in valve events until after the major. Which is the 'player break' that optic will re-evaluate their options at. At least until then they're stuck with a streamer and washed up CLG player However, anyone who didn't qualify to a minor eg nip players or valde can play, maybe a bad move from og
2017-05-24 15:23
no valde? riiip

His average rating for clg has been 0.8? How's that good. Edit; and that's against t2 teams LOL. No chance against t1

ez for jasonR
2017-05-24 02:09
i like Jason but he doesn't fit what optic needs unless he develops into a good igl which prolly wont happen. hopefully this works out for them, prolly wont tho

jasonr - good in rank s shit on online/lans vs pro teams
2017-05-24 02:10
he just concentrates on fragging in rank s. His raw aim is very good , but Optic doesn't need him to frag with the roster they have. Everyone will hate on him unless he is dropping a 30 bomb every match. Get it together and try to think of what he is actually trying to do for the team.
2017-05-25 03:11
GOOD LUCK JASON MY MAN
2017-05-24 02:12
Honestly they've looked better with JasonR than just about anyone else, which does show the impact an IGL can have over a star player. That said, people saying "why not Daps" don't seem to realize that Daps is just as bad as JasonR while bringing in almost nothing new (and, in fact, probably less).
2017-05-24 02:13
And not only that, daps and NAF are like a dog and a cat, team chemistry would rapidly go shit.
2017-05-24 21:33

Relyks is trash, JasonR is way better he just needs more experience playing on an actual team
2017-05-24 03:08
check his statistics of last games. He's trash. Check statistics of all last games. In 80% he's last in fragtable. New taco? Lurker? Support role? I dont think so
2017-05-24 03:19
They still need an IGL.

so wierd to me that a player that wos kicked from fucking splyce suddenly is calling for optic xd
2017-05-24 13:07
It Wasnt 'suddenly' at all. The last tournament he played for Splyce was (i believe) the Dreamhack where Summit burnned himself in a legendary play. Jason has improve alot since there and i believe he can be a Good fit for Optic andbif he put in work perh

Why report something that isn't report-worthy in the slightest? If you merely reported because disagree with my opinion, then I truly feel sorry for you. Otherwise, I'm sure you had a valid reason regardless. Have a good day.
