Magisk leaves OpTic

Emil "Magisk" Reif is no longer part of OpTic Gaming's roster, the North American organisation have announced.

The Danish player becomes the second player to depart OpTic ahead of the ESL Pro League roster lock, following in the footsteps of Oscar "mixwell" Cañellas, who parted ways with the North American organisation last night.

The announcement comes just hours after a report from DBLTAP linked Emil "Magisk" Reif with Astralis, who are on the lookout for a new player after losing Markus "Kjaerbye" Kjærbye to North.

Magisk leaves the European mixture

During his five-month spell with OpTic, Magisk attended five LAN events, averaging a 1.12 rating. The European team's most nostable achievements were two playoffs run at the ESL Pro League Season 6 Finals and at IEM Oakland.

With Magisk's departure, OpTic are now down to the following three-man roster:

Kyaerbye made him the biggest opportunity in his career. Too bad Optic is falling apart, I liked that lineup.
2018-02-07 09:29
this lineup was one of my favorites. but i cant imagine Astralis Magisk even if its gonna happen

All he said is ' I liked that lineup' . That doesn't imply that this lineup has to be the best on earth. It only means that he liked the players in it so stop being retarded

Drunk? Mixwell outshining Allu? The reason they started picking up rounds during the last match they played (minor) was because Allu started to awp over mixwell.

2018-02-07 09:23
God damn it, I really liked this lineup and they didn't perform that bad in the matches they played, got quite far in EPL6 for example.. Sad to see both Mixwell and Magisk leave.
2018-02-07 09:28
The fun part is, I can't really see any winners in these shuffles i've seen so far. Feels like teams have given up working together through hardships and there is always someone to blame for "not making" it. I mean, chemistry yes... but if you seek perfection in every area, maybe you should just grow together towards it instead of looking easy answers through shuffles.
