OpTic India have secured their slot to ESL Pro League Season 8 Asia after defeating Slaughter Rage Army in the grand final of ESL India Premiership 2018 Fall Finals, 2-0.

The four-team competition took place on October 13-14 in Hyderabad, India, following ESL's announcement last Thursday with an Indian spot being included in ESL Pro League Season 8 Asia's expansion.

In the semi-finals, OpTic India crushed 2ez in two maps with ease (16-7 on Nuke & 16-6 on Inferno). Slaughter Rage Army dodged the bullet for a third map against Brutality after claiming Cache, 16-7, and edging out the overtime win on Dust2, 19-17.

You have to assume Optic Gaming want success and strive to have all their CS teams in top tier tournaments, so eventually they'll get a problem!?

Then they could sell one of the lineups if Indian one actually turned out successful. Don't see a reason to sell before they actually do. Danish lineup is in MDL so no chance for them to meet up in ESL Pro League Finals. Or in case of Dignitas+Dignitas Fe iirc org can simply not allow weaker team to play in same qualifiers.

The whole point of their business is to make money. They invest in a team that has potential and probably doesn't cost much. Their Danish roster doesn't suffer in any way because they picked up an Indian one who get to play full time. OpTic picking up Indian roster made some headlines. It's great for them fan wise (where they make money) since there are no well established teams in India. This move also gives support and exposure to this roster and their scene in general. You'd rather wish this roster plays for lower money because you don't think it's nice there MIGHT be a problem down the line?

this happens in every sports. to say that they cheapshots the entire industry and countrys player base is .. sorry .. bullshit. it's all about how optic reacts now - obv.- they should kick all player becuz noone ever belives they all didnt know whats going on. if this kid gets lifebanned from any official csgoturny then its a good sign for all players. u wont become pro using cheats!
