fox joins OFFSET

The Portuguese organization announced the signing alongside plans to strengthen its investments in CS:GO.

Ricardo "⁠fox⁠" Pacheco is the first member of the new OFFSET lineup, the organization has announced on Sunday. OFFSET will build their new team around the veteran player after they parted ways with their former team featuring Luís "⁠ZELIN⁠" Lousada at the end of 2020.

"It is with great pleasure that we announce the return of the greatest figure of the Portuguese CS:GO to a Portuguese organization," OFFSET wrote in a statement, adding that "after a period of reflection" they chose to solidify their position as "one of the largest Portuguese esports organizations" by strengthening investment in CS:GO.

Signing fox, who represented Giants for two years before the team closed its' CS:GO division in December, is the team's starting point. With fox joining, the 34-year-old that attended five Majors in his career will return to a Portuguese organization five years since departing k1ck, having represented the likes of Kinguin, G2, FaZe, Dignitas, and Tempo Storm in that time.

Who the remaining players that will form OFFSET's roster are is currently unknown, but according to a report by Fraglider from December, the organization was looking to acquire the whole former Giants lineup, which included players such as Filipe "⁠NOPEEJ⁠" Dias and Paulo "⁠pr⁠" Silva, as well as coach Vasco "⁠vsk⁠" Santos, with former Baecon member Bruno "⁠shellzi⁠" Teixeira expected to finalise the roster instead of Francisco "⁠obj⁠" Ramos.

there is a difference between being the best player EVER and being the best IN-FORM player and fox is still and will probably be for a long time the best player.

thats actuallu quite unfair to say. He is- individually- the biggest headache in the iberean scen (i can only talk about the Iberian scene rn because is where he is regularly playing). The only player that has shown boign -individually- close to him is stadodo (however, truth being said, both are awpers and awper have better stats than riflers)

he is not stealing if he is earning them. not is problem that people still want him to play for them, he can still bring a lot to many teams. in this case, he can help develop up and coming players like nopej and pr

Great for him, but on a real note, he really needs to get back to a full international lineup. Sticking to the portuguese scene won't bring anything to him as of now and it's clear that he still has the passion for the game, so if he wants to keep on competing and i'm sure wants it at a high level, just go back to an international roster

He has no chance of joining an international lineup, He is way past his prime brother.
