OpTic and cajunb part ways

OpTic have announced René "cajunb" Borg will no longer be part of the team's roster moving forward.

cajunb had been a part of OpTic since February of last year when he joined the organization with Nicklas "gade" Gade, Kristian "k0nfig" Wienecke, and teaming up with North American duo of Peter "stanislaw" Jarguz and Shahzeb "ShahZaM" Khan.

OpTic have announced cajunb's departure from the roster

The team then went fully Danish with the signing of Jakob "JUGi" Hansen and Marco "Snappi" Pfeiffer, but OpTic were never able to find their stride as gade was replaced with Nikolaj "niko" Kristensen and he in turn with Ismail "refrezh" Ali at the end of last year.

Now, it is the former North and Astralis player who bids farewell to the team. cajunb achieved second places at DreamHack Summer 2018, the FACEIT Major's Europe Minor, and cs_summit 3 during his tenure behind the Green Wall, but was unable to lift any silverware.

With cajunb's departure, OpTic are now:

Denmark Kristian "k0nfig" Wienecke
Denmark Marco "Snappi" Pfeiffer
Denmark Jakob "JUGi" Hansen
Denmark Ismail "refrezh" Ali

Denmark Casper "ruggah" Due (coach)

Sad. I wanted him to stay on the team, and try again to play with msl who now is the awper. I like cajun as a lurker, when he's comfortable in his role you can see his experience & good decision making. I guess he's not interested in this new roster, the beef might be serious. Good luck Rene, will cheer for you wherever you go !

In the interview, the new mousesports in-game leader karrigan and Russian community figure OverDrive discussed the Dane's career, including his time in Astralis and FaZe, getting together a new group of players to try and grind his way back up the ranking with mousesports, and a lot of other general subject matter.

Cajunb might not be one of the best player in cs history, but he is definitely one of the most hardworking pro and nicest pro ive ever met in person. Respect.
