Official: HS signs for OpTic

August 30th, 2017 01:00

PENTA Sports player Kevin "HS" Tarn has joined OpTic Gaming on a permanent basis, the North American organisation has confirmed.

The announcement was made by Óscar "mixwell" Cañellas in the latest episode of OpTic's "Vision" documentary series, which covers the North American organisation's decision to build a European team following the departures of Will "RUSH" Wierzba and Tarik "tarik" Celik to Cloud9.

Kevin "HS" Tarn, who will be joining Aleksi "allu" Jalli, Emil "Magisk" Reif, Adam "friberg" Friberg and the aforementioned mixwell, will leave PENTA behind and will play ESL Pro League in North America with OpTic—a team with a perfect record so far with four matches played, albeit against two newcomers, Ghost and Rogue.

HS during the group stages of the PGL Major in Krakow earlier this summer

While HS has been seen as one of Estonia’s biggest talents, it wasn’t until he signed with PENTA and helped his team win the ESEA Season 24 MDL LAN, finish second at the European Minor and qualify for the Majorthat he started to turn heads as one of the engines in that team.

Now, HS will have a shot with OpTic, who will be putting their focus on competing online for the time being, after losing their invites to ELEAGUE Premier and DreamHack Masters Malmö.

With this move, OpTic close out their roster, and it is as follows: 

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

United States Chet "ImAPet" Singh (coach)

actually this is a sick lineup - friberg and add any supreme/global legit player and the team its top15
2017-08-30 02:25
Friberg is there because he is the only one who's capable of IGL'ing. A proper IGL would make optic a dolid tier 1.5 team.

Friberg is smart and understands the game. If you ever heard him cast a game you'd know. That doesn't mean he will be good as the IGL, of course, especially as a beginner, but at least give him a chance. I don't know who else they could pick at the moment, the rest of them are locked in contracts. And look at the upside. If Friberg can IGL he's a way better fragger than most IGL:s out there. Suddenly his numbers start to look good from an IGL perspective, even if that's the only position where you can have those numbers.
2017-08-30 12:30
fribergs igling so his individual performence doesn't matter on a large scale

Pretty nice tbh, already excited to see them at LAN events
2017-08-30 01:35
Might take a while to actually see them in one, since they have to start from the bottom. Might get invited to smaller lans tho.
2017-08-30 09:57
EPL finals should be likely for them, they should ez get on the top places of the NA league But besides that it may take a while, I agree
2017-08-30 10:05
Oh yeah forgot they're actually going to play it from NA. Well, if they dont make it there, I think they're not too good to be excited about.. xD

They are playing NA pro league so they have to move to NA. Eventually they may all move back to EU but they need to be in NA for the rest of Pro League.
2017-08-30 01:18
Yeah and mixwell said that after epl they all move back to eu 100% so why get naf for only a few months and then remove him later when they can get a permenant fifth now?

Still HS is really unexperienced, i would have prefer picking lowel or trying to get dennis(b4 he went to godsent ofc). Also i would have liked HS to stay in Penta with krystal and CO. :(

Everyone has to start somewhere. Coldzera and Niko didn't just start their careers playing infront of big crowd immediately.
2017-08-30 05:08
Yeah, and Coldzera and Niko should have obviously not been given ANY chances, because they're inexperienced. Kick 'em out and fuck 'em, 'cause they haven't played in front of a big crowd (despite the fact that Cold like carried them to a major win when he was still greenhorned as FUCK). lmao the team has fucking Friberg if you want "experience". This delusion of needing to have "experience", with "experience" meaning players who've, I guess, played for longer, is dumb.

No he doesn't
2017-08-30 01:42
yes he does, below average fragger, can't igl, brings nothing to the team, useless in old Optic. Should not be playing for a team that wants to be the best in NA or get out of groups in meaningful tournaments
2017-08-30 03:16
#175
 | 
Spain JasonRacism 
Can't IGL but he is a solid fragger
2017-08-30 04:09
naf is a great player, you just probably haven't watch him enough. I think he is by far the most under rated player in Na maybe the world. He is a play maker with a high skill ceiling and that guy he wins like 1v4s and brings your team single handily back into the game.

I'm pretty sure he tried when the first kicked daps off optic/conquest. Regardless, I think renegades need an experienced igl more than anything. Don't get me wrong, nifty is doing a great job, but he isn't 2016 fallen who can be a god on awp and call sick strats at the same time. He should stick to awping and they should get an igl.

Daps was only kicked off Optic/Conquest once you're thinking of Stan, Don't recall Naf ever IGL even for less than a month but I could be wrong and it obviously didn't work out right, Nifty has been super impressive to me, He is probably Renegades 2nd best fragger after Jks while he is IGL and main AWPing like what a player, I think Kassad is really helping him with IGL that's the main reason of his sucsess, If they wanted to bring in a IGL probably Pronax would be the person, Currently free agent and has previous success, Firepower wise they probably should get Naf or maybe Relyks

So, zehN must stay or spot in qualifier is open, but innocent said 2-3 weeks ago on stream that zehN is out too, I hope that something has changed.

Good choice. I think this squad has loads of potential to do some serious damage if they can get set their roles properly, find chemistry and go from there. They've got some firepower in that team and if friberg can rediscover some of his old form back, they will be very good.
2017-08-30 01:23
I give friberg 3-4 months max.

They're gonna go back to EU next season anyways, if ESL allowed NRG to compete with 3/5 EU players they might as well allow 5/5 as long as they are playing from NA

EU should have more playoff spots anyway, maybe they will realize this when newly formed optic from EU rejects stomps to playoffs with ease at NA.
2017-08-30 09:30
According to rules a team's placement is decided on their players' location, not nationality. As they all move to NA its all good
2017-08-30 14:02
-1/10 IN ONE MAJOR KAPPA

Given the remnants of the EU/NA shuffle, this is probably one of the best lineups (role wise as well) OpTic could put together. A lot of what-if's about their ceiling, but they should be far more consistent than all post-Stanislaw rosters they've had.

all these people who want renegades to get naf lul i bet naf can do way better
2017-08-30 04:29
I don't think so C9 won't make changes. Liquid might... Call me deluded but now that OpTic is gone I'd put RNG at third and they are looking for a 5th so this option is most likely. Misfits probably won't but they might. There's also CLG but I don't think they will make changes either. Prolly between Renegades, Misfits or Liquid TBH. If liquid decide to get naf then 100% he will join them but if not then I think RNG is the best option for both him and the team.

If allu plays in optic like he played in nip this lineup has potential to be in major final, also if HS plays like in Penta with pistols WOWOOOHOHOOHOH
2017-08-30 13:51
On paper Optic made a great.deal by.signing these players. They only paid a transfer fee for HS and they signed the rest of them on a free transfer. They combine insane "young" skill in hs, magisk and mixwell and experience in friberg and allu. I see them as a top4 in NA and top15 in the world after 6 months (they need chemistry)
