OpTic to unveil European team - Report

OpTic Gaming will continue their Counter-Strike adventure in Europe with Óscar "mixwell" Cañellas accompanied by four new players, according to a report by Flickshot.fr.

With their Counter-Strike squad depleted to just two players following the departures of Tarik "⁠tarik⁠" Celik and William "⁠RUSH⁠" Wierzba to Cloud9, OpTic have decided to shift their focus from North America to Europe as they hope to get back to winning ways after a disappointing six months.

Oscar "⁠mixwell⁠" Cañellas, who had made no secret of his wish to move back to Europe, is the only player making the transition to the new squad, in which he will be joined by players from four different countries.

friberg will reportedly lead the new OpTic squad

According to the reportAdam "⁠friberg⁠" Friberg, who was recently released by NiP, will likely take over as ingame leader, reuniting with former teammate Aleksi "⁠allu⁠" Jalli, who had been benched by FaZe following Ladislav "⁠GuardiaN⁠" Kovács's signing. Emil "⁠Magisk⁠" Reif joins in from North, who had moved the 19-year-old to a backup position, with PENTA's Kevin "⁠HS⁠" Tarn completing the roster.

OpTic's new squad will be staying in Europe, Flickshot.fr. adds, which raises many questions about their spots in ESL Pro League and in ECS. According to the Pro League rulebook, "ESL reserves the right to withdraw a league license from any team" if it "loses several of its players."

OpTic's new squad will feature:

Spain Oscar "⁠mixwell⁠" Cañellas
Finland Aleksi "⁠allu⁠" Jalli
Sweden Adam "⁠friberg⁠" Friberg
Denmark Emil "⁠Magisk⁠" Reif
Estonia Kevin "⁠HS⁠" Tarn

Really interesting lineup, if they get some time and the chemistry right they can probably reach a top10 position and even fight for the occasional top3 finish.

best penta player on qualifier was HS but nt, mouz need more lineup changes to become top5, i can't see a team with styko and chrisj being that good
2017-08-18 21:19
any player can grow for a better form.
2017-08-18 21:27
Seeing Styko as a potential "upgrade" in the team made me lol :D who knows, maybe he'll deliver.. but I doubt it.
2017-08-18 21:32
More lineup changes for mouz? This is the main reason mouz wont ever make it to the playoffs in a major since they are switching their players like every 2 weeks
2017-08-18 22:58

they have to continue changing cause they're stupid and change the wrong players, letting iowel go for example was a downgrade, maybe they had internal issues

I don't think much of him as a player tbh but I'm pretty sure he will thrive to finally play in a different team than NiP, same goes for magisk. This team doesn't have Top5 potential in the near future for me but I'm still curious what this will hold.

2017-08-18 21:09
I think Top10 until the end of this year would be pretty great already. Let's not forget, in this competitive era being Top10 in the world is already a great achievement.
2017-08-19 11:50
I think thats a stretch.. Unless friberg turns out to be a lot better leader than xizt which would be weird since they didnt do so in nip.
2017-08-18 21:04
this team will prob just be another penta, make it far somewhere and have some upsets then have the better players taken to other teams

I guess there's a reason why he never did the igl again. Also allu's english is very rusty while Friberg's english is solid

OpTic's new squad will be staying in Europe, Flickshot.fr. adds, which raises many questions about their spots in ESL Pro League and in ECS. They'll just have to requalify probably and will play in a couple seasons
2017-08-18 20:53

And another cleaver guy Optic gaming house is in na SO THEY WILL PLAY IN NA They wont play for eu with 300ms ping
2017-08-18 20:54
So what? OpTic is rich as fuck and could buy as many houses as they want. mixwell also said in his spanish stream that he would be moving to EU as soon as the new team gets officially released.
2017-08-18 20:58
Why tf would they play in NA when they have 0 NA players? They dont.
2017-08-18 21:13

Hopefully friberg will be a good IGL, this line-up looks exciting
2017-08-18 20:46
Friberg moving to calling is such a good way to revitalise his career, if he proves capable/competent even bigger opportunities will be on his way.
2017-08-18 20:42
If friberg proves a decent IGL fnatic will pick him up 100% after their next failed pickup.
2017-08-18 20:44
Also will force him to pickup new spots, play new roles, and have a completely different perspective on the game. Since it's a completely new challenge his motivation levels will skyrocket. ... Hopefully success for him follows.
2017-08-18 20:46
Yeah, that's the thing that excites me the most about all of this. Motivated Friberg = insane Friberg. If he can pick up calling, which I'm sure he's learned a lot from both fiffi and xizt, bring some of the aspects that threat brings when he's actually with the team in NiP I really believe he can excel at the position. The interesting part of it will be to see who will entry, cuz Friberg is the natural entry with magisk and an igl close to the action as an entry is usually an advantage in terms of calling.
2017-08-18 21:24

HS is unexpected. I would've expected PENTA/KHRYSTAL to try and hold onto their #1 player... Now they're probably back to square one again. I'm also surprised KioShiMa isn't trying to be apart of this European lineup. Maybe KioShiMa will move back onto a French lineup like EnVyUS or LDLC. Anyways, OpTic just made a great decision to sway away from their disasterous NA roster into a international European lineup.
2017-08-18 20:48
1.KHYRSTAL is swedish player 2.Kioshima was kicked out of faze at last minute 3.The team was made before they even knew that kio is out of faze

2017-08-20 13:09
Dude, read news hltv.org/news/21251/immortals-in-turmoil.. It is believed that LUCAS1, HEN1 and kNgV- are all keen to play alongside Lincoln "fnx" Lau, who is on Immortals' transfer list after being benched by the team in May, with Liquid's Jonathan "EliGE" Jablonowski, who speaks Portuguese, high on the list of potential candidates for the fifth position.
2017-08-19 00:38
It's exactly that. Boltz was the one demanding FNX no bench. The truth is Boltz and Steel have no respect from other BRs players. Personality thing there.

2017-08-18 21:02
-friberg +dennis
2017-08-18 21:03
im surprised lowel isn't in this team instead of HS, i mean wtf, is mixwell a traitor? considering lowel was kicked for mouz his duty as compatriot was to help and give him a chance in new OpTic

2017-08-18 21:06
Where's naf?
2017-08-18 21:06
he'll probably go to NRG, according to some rumors, so basically tier 5
2017-08-18 21:07
That's a shame, feel like he's really underrated as a player
2017-08-18 21:08
yeah, I was shocked to see he's only fucking 19, he's legit a young NA talent that will go to shit now
2017-08-18 21:11
Wait naf is 19? Thought he was like 26 oh well na just doesn't like winning so they throw away talent like naf
2017-08-18 21:57
Yeah, check his page, I was shocked. Shame to see him go to such a bad team.

Different opinions then.. HS to me is easily better than pimp and lowel. pimp was mediocre in liquid and who knows what his form is now. HS was penta's best player along side sunny and was always consistently on top of the scoreboard
2017-08-18 21:30
Being the beat player in penta isn't really a compliment since they are all bad.. Bad comparison

Why base on Europe? Optic should have bring the roster in NA. This team has the potential to reach TOP 6 in NA, and then get eZ invitations to big events. Here in Europe they will just spent their time struggling in qualifiers.
2017-08-18 21:34
EU has better practice and scene in general, I guess? It doesn't sound very logical to move the entire roster that's 100% European to NA. I'm not even certain all of these players would agree to that, since some of them have allegedly rejected offers from NA teams in the past.
2017-08-18 21:42
All is married and doesn't want to move and magisk said he wants to stay in eu aswell
2017-08-18 21:53

2017-08-18 21:58
Gonna be interesting to see mixwell rifling again and friberg igling. We'll see if friberg will be good again in a new team, igling is likely the reason they chose him over dennis, seeing as how dennis doesn't like to igl. Allu will be god on awp as always, magisk will likely be great too. Biggest question mark here is if HS can play at a t1 level, he was pretty good in penta and actually one of their star players, I'm not sure if that's enough to end up in a possible top 10-5 team such as this.. Over all good lineup from optic.
2017-08-18 22:00
"Allu will be god on awp as always" flag checks out
2017-08-18 22:01
:D:D:D:DD:D:D:D:D: he has been good in faze though
2017-08-18 22:02
But also very inconsistent . Hits 2 unreal shots and misses the next free kill
2017-08-18 23:09
Yeah that's the problem with allu, thing is he still gets enough kills to set up for his teammates, he's much more of a supportive and passive awper which is a shame seeing as how he plays much better as an aggressive awper. Hopefully he'll be more aggressive under friberg

And HS figured he'd rather join this than stick to Penta? Seems unusual but hey, I'm not the pro, he probably knows something that I don't
2017-08-18 23:51
What are you even saying? It's a no-brainer for him to join this lineup. More potential in the overall players, probably a better salary, more opportunities, more exposure. On top of that Penta lost Sunny and the other players are kind of shit.

Hope this is true that lineup actually looks good, got some skilled players and some good role players it would work out. Also this lineup is WAY better than the garbage NA team they had previously who had like 2 good tournaments in 1 year.

2017-08-19 01:27
Yeah replace awper with garbage support. Moron.
2017-08-19 10:55
mixwell is a godlike awper. they dont need allu. mixwell won't give allu the awp so it leaves allu with ak and kio fucks allu with a rifle.
2017-08-22 20:03
Nah allu is good rifler and awp he can play both well. Kio is support and decent rifler but never same level than allu. C9 fan, from israel or some poor shit, tries to prove facts. 0/8 kys moron
2017-08-22 21:30
Im not c9 fan. SK4EVER. I missed click on +Fan button for C9. "Finland"? You suck a dick. Such a gay country fucking jerk with glasses and cold cold family with no brothers or love. Poor?

2 awpers isn't a good idea. They'll probably cut Mixwell or allu soon.
2017-08-19 01:45
Allu will be the main awper. Mixwell will go back to his roots and rifle again since he said he didn't want to be the awper anymore.
2017-08-19 04:23
This is why polish doesnt open hltv. Its clearly said that mixwell is rifler but ur little brains cant handle that

They should not use Allu. mixwell is way better with awp. Get some good rifler instead.

One of the best awpers out there. "Should not use" u are moron.

Poor NAF
2017-08-19 02:15
My take on this move: They don't have an IGL, so they will fail, you would think that Optic of all orgs would learn that the hard way. Optic: Yeah, we'll let Bot Friberg IGL, since he has experience at sucking for 2 years in NIP. *2 months later* So we'll be changing our roster. HS is unproven and he'd better show that he's legit. I feel like Optic cheaped out a little, friberg was free agent, same for allu and they had mixwell, so no extra money spent on buyout for them. I saw rumors that the buyout was 300k for magisk, but we don't know for sure and I doubt HS was that expensive. They should've gone for dennis and ange1 if they wanted a legit team.

2017-08-19 09:46
well this team is really good tbh
2017-08-19 09:51
This team is decent tbh. It depends alot about how friberg manages to IGL. Magisk, mixwell are madfraggers, if HS can frag, and ally play solid and be consistent, this could actually work!

This should be interesting. It's going to take them some time to get anywhere though, you can fully expect their first month or two to be filled with bad losses.
2017-08-19 12:24
This could go either way really. What they do have is motivated players to prove everyone wrong.. GL.

This team should be named renegades. Will be fun to watch if they will be able to do anything. The huge problem here will be IGL obviously, other than that they might be decent. One player i would change right away is probably magisk, but we will see.

friberg as a IGL is kinda sketchy and that will further cap his performance allu probably a 2nd awp/support rifler

2 awpers? friberg igl toxic magisk OMEGALUL
2017-08-20 16:27
lol mixwell said he hates playing with AWP.. allu will be the main awper.
2017-08-21 13:41
It would be cool to have ANGE1 in place of allu, mixwell - main AWP + 3 good AK players = could be something good!
