RUSH: "jasonR is getting better day by day"

OpTic came by on the finals day of ESL Pro League Season 5 Finals, so we grabbed Will "RUSH" Wierzba for an interview about the team's showing, Jason "jasonR" Ruchelski's progress as an in-game leader, and the importance of their next events.

OpTic exited the finals with a 2-3 record in Group B, having defeated NRG (19-16) and Natus Vincere (16-8) and losing to Liquid (5-16), mousesports (12-16), and North (14-16).

Hit play below to find out what William "RUSH" Wierzba thought of OpTic's results, Jason "jasonR" Ruchelski's leadership, and more:

Hard to believe there is no better option than Jason in NA...
2017-06-05 16:40
not for igls
2017-06-05 17:29
Since when was Jason a good IGL? He is being forced into that role because they need an IGL.

im guessing you havent seen him shaved? he looks like a fucking teenager
2017-06-05 17:26
well a lot of people grow a beard to either look older, have a certain look/style that a beard can create, or to hide fat on their face or to hide their double chin (for very chubby people)

Why they dont buy cheats for jasonr obviously volvo doesnt care if he suddenly goes 30/5 every match he just finds he's ''good form''.
2017-06-05 17:29
IGL, not his role to kill!

Everyone has a role to at least frag :)

it's not jason's fault, optic decided to pick him for whatever reason (who would refuse that kind of an offer) and he's doing his best - which is average. he's a decent player and he's getting better, but you gotta understand he literally switched from rank S to being an IGL of a top NA team.
2017-06-05 17:22
well he cant get worse :D

The point is Optic was already supposed to be a "top" team, not be in the making to be. Could of made a better choice than jasonR, probably just due to usual social connections in Pro
2017-06-05 20:25
no

throwback to jr nasty on splyce. my dude has gone a long way and hope he succeeds even more.
