OG close in on MICHU - Report

The former Virtus.pro member is reportedly on the brink of joining the international team.

OG are close to signing free agent Michał "⁠MICHU⁠" Müller, according to a report from Weszło Esport. The Polish player will round out the international team's roster, replacing Issa "⁠ISSAA⁠" Murad, who was last week moved to the bench.

MICHU has been without a contract since leaving Envy last month. He spent a year under the North American organisation but rarely saw action, competing in only seven tournaments - most notably Flashpoint 1 and 2 - before Envy opted to withdraw from Counter-Strike.

MICHU will be unveiled by OG in the coming days, according to the report

According to Weszło Esport, MICHU has been on OG's shortlist since the end of 2020, when the team first thought about replacing Nathan "⁠NBK-⁠" Schmitt. No changes took place at the time, but a poor start to the 2021 season forced OG to pull the trigger and sign Nikolaj "⁠niko⁠" Kristensen, who took the two-time Major winner's spot.

But that lineup lasted only two tournaments. Following a failed qualification campaign for DreamHack Masters Spring and a fourth-place finish in their ESL Pro League group, ISSAA, who was already under pressure following some inconsistent showings, was moved to the bench in a mutual decision between OG and the player, according to the organisation.

MICHU could make his first appearance for OG in the BLAST Premier Spring Showdown, scheduled for April 13-18. Sixteen teams will be taking part in this tournament, which has two spots in the Spring Finals up for grabs.

Yeah, people were shilling for him and flamez. I personally wanted the latter to join as he can provide the star fragging power the team needs. Michu is a good fit too though, and I'm crossing my fingers that his first chance on a team that actually gives a shit is successful

Mantu, Valde and Niko are very strong players and so is Michu. you dont need star player to win tournaments... did astralis have somebody with high ratings like simple and zywoo? NO... they all had impact and great cemistry. That is what wins the titles.

2021-03-24 14:27
Astralis's top form was higher top to bottom than any other team out there. They had 4 players in the top 20 in both 2018 and 2019 (all 5 in 2018). In 2018 2 of them were top 5 (device was 2nd...), with 2 others in the top 10. In 2019 they had 2 in the top 5 (device 3rd behind ZywOo and s1mple). So when you say they don't need stars you come off as a little confused about Astralis's talent...

did i say device is bad? XD mantuu has potential to be really good and he has shown it already. How do you think people get to high on the top20 = good team around him and chemistry, simple as that. The problem with with og has been that NBK wasnt so good and issaa just complete waste of money (made so many mistakes all the time) who cares if he rekts people on lan if he is dogshit?

You said they didn't have highly rated players which is factually incorrect on every notable metric possible. Top 3 player for 5 years is somehow not equivalent to highly rated star power. That is my issue.

Categorizing a player as not good due to the teams lack of success shows how stupid you actually are about understanding this game. Its about pieces to a puzzle. You can take the top 5 players in the world and put them on a team struggling and the team wont be top tier. It takes 5 pieces.
2021-03-31 18:14
1 reply
wow hltv halfwit actually trying to argue? who the fuck are u then from the outside to judge who the fitting 5 pieces in a team can be? lol the entire pro scene gave up on this kid years ago, as shown by the fact that noone of note ever gave 2 fucks to play with him and the tier3-4 teams that did end up playing with him were NEVER any good, nor was he carrying them particularly hard or whatever. hes just one of those kids that looked good when he came up, but never managed to get anywhere. there are countless players like him, he was just unlucky enough to be put in a position where a few casters etc actually parroted the stuff about his supposed talent enough that people actually expected him to be crazy good. that was years ago, like i said.

Exactly what stats could be used as a fair comparrison here? the obvious reason to anyone with a functioning brain, why Issa is better on lan than online, is that he has 100+ ping. i dont understand how u pocess a human brain... how r we same species

he's not getting shuffled anymore is he, I don't see him getting passed around from team to team like what's happening with the Polish scene currently (with Ago, Illuminar, Anonymo etc.) , and spending 2 years on VP is hardly getting "shuffled around" - I also don't get where you're getting the countless stand ins part, as he has only ever been a stand-in three times for VP and hasn't done it for any other team, and all of the other times, he has been on a team of some sort permanently

his time in VP was one big polish shuffle, he might not have been shuffled there, but his whole team was constantly shuffled which is same shit. cause he played for envy in 8 months he is not getting shuffled anymore? i would sya only staying in a team for 8 months is being shuffled, especially cause there is no way in hell he will stay that long in OG. he have been stand-in, in a bunch of low tier matches not on hltv, mostly polish torunaments.

I would say this is very good move for OG. Even if Michu will not be a game changer right away this guy has great mentality and work attitude. He will grind, he will try to prove he was a good choice, so there is big room for improvment and I am sure OG will become fearsome contender with addition of Michu.

People in this topic don't know how good MICHU is. They think that it is t3 player, but in reality he is of course top 15 in the world in aiming (I can compare him to players like dupreeh, Ax1le, stavn etc.). In my opinion, even better than aiming is his level of communication and patience in game. I never saw any rage from him. He made bad decisions in previous times in career - VP was in stomp, Envy was shit team and only Calyx was relevant. If you make him to play in right way, he will be star player in OG.

somewhat i agree but even a 10k salary a month isnt that expensive for majority of the orgs or any legitimate company. anybody with real wealth will tell you the same thing, it takes money to make money. to be honest they should of picked up espiranto. everybody that plays against or with him says hes a beast on lans and hate to say it but mantuu still is unproven on lan under pressure, so the fact they are kinda leaning on him to perform once we get lets say to the major will he be able to go toe to toe with s1mple, device, zywoo, syrson, cerq, all these awpers are above his current average and teams they will have to go thru in order to make it deep into tourneys

Espiranto is already confirmed to be in Sunny&Flusha project. In addition, I can not think about any cheap AWPer but Toxic who is better than Mantuu in the market. I don't think Aleksib is going to drop Mantuu for Woxic.

to be honest nobody but sunny and espiranto knows there own future, sunny may stay with FPX and the flusha project may never get picked up. im saying even with these moves OG isnt going to be higher in the world rankings than they were last year. if they are looking for wins, trophies maybe a dreamhack open or snow sweet snow but for a tier S tourney with everyone played hyper focused cs i doubt OG will even make waves

Well, I partially agree with you. However, OG is the team that could always exceed people's expectations. Both SpunJ and Glave said that the original OG roster can never reach top 10. But OG peaked at HLTV top 6 and made two finals. And OG achieved that with two Tier 3 monkeys with guns (NBK&ISSAA) and a inconsistent AWPer (hate to admit it as a mantuu man).

in my mind everything right now is kinda irrelevant because its an online environment. currently VP dominating fnatic is a prime example. remember Jame choking the in major finals? im willing to bet once we return to lan with fans in the stands, stage lights, cameras rolling, the rankings are going to look a lot different. EG, fnatic, coL, Faze, G2 are teams built for high pressure lan atmosphere/situations. dont get me wrong, aleskib and valde are going to show up, maybe even niko but michu and mantuu are such a big question mark. being able to preform under pressure is what makes a pro a professional in my opinion. the yekindars, sh1ros, degster are going to crumble under that same pressure. onliners are real, its like we're watching FPL games being played for big payouts.

I don't understand that move... Yes, Issaa not good right now. But he's still better than Michu.... Michu is average tier 2-3 player. OG should find some1 better.

What is the point in having a team in cs go and not wanting to spend money on good players? Their first team was a joke, now they kick nbk and issa just to replace them with niko and michu lmao wtf

i mean michu is great choice but ropz or flamez would be better option. Ropz is beast and flamez is on same lvl as michu but he is younger

Valid, now that I think about it the only tournament I can remember VP MICHU from was V4 Future Sports, nothing else. Nonetheless, still excited for him to be more prominent in the tier 1 scene.
