aliStair departs ORDER

The player steps down after spending three years with the team.

ORDER have announced the departure of Alistair "⁠aliStair⁠" Johnston, the team's longest-standing member, on Thursday. The 22-year-old has also been the standout player for the team in 2020, averaging a team-high 1.22 rating.

The news looks to be connected with other changes in the Australian scene, as earlier HTT News reported that aliStair would be joining Renegades. There, he would fill in for the departing Christopher "⁠dexter⁠" Nong, who has been confirmed as a target for European squad mousesports.

aliStair is hoping to play more international competition

"My main goal with Counter-Strike is to do as much international damage as possible, make it out of Australia", he said in a statement for ORDER, adding that going to overseas events, "one, two, or three a year keeps you going, it is the most motivating thing ever".

While aliStair's next team hasn't been confirmed, Renegades are the most likely option. If he would join the team, aliStair would reunite with three former ORDER player - Simon "⁠Sico⁠" Williams, Joshua "⁠INS⁠" Potter, and Jordan "⁠Hatz⁠" Bajic, who all made the same move over the last two years.

On the other hand, ORDER are now down to four men, with Ricardo "⁠Rickeh⁠" Mulholland looking to take over the AWPing duties going forward.

ORDER are now:

Australia Ricardo "⁠Rickeh⁠" Mulholland
Australia Karlo "⁠USTILO⁠" Pivac
Australia Jireh "⁠J1rah⁠" Youakim
Australia Matthew "⁠Valiance⁠" Hartrick

Interesting, would have loved to see him in Extremium with Grat as rifler but Renegades pretty good too. Question is, who's gonna be the IGL and the main awper for the Aussie squad?

AliStair is going to be the main awper for sure, malta or Sico will take a lead I think

Don't Renegades need a new IGL, not an awper? I guess its a great pick up though

I imagine Malta will become IGL, I think he may have done it before in Chiefs for a while.
