flameZ completes OG lineup - Official

The Israeli youngster will make his debut with the team against Astralis in the BLAST Premier Spring Showdown.

Shahar "⁠flameZ⁠" Shushan has completed OG's lineup, the organization has confirmed. The 17-year-old up-and-comer effectively replaces Issa "⁠ISSAA⁠" Murad on the roster, several weeks after the Jordanian player and OG decided to part ways on the back of a string of disappointing results at the beginning of 2021.

flameZ was one of the Aleksi "⁠Aleksib⁠" Virolainen-led side's two biggest targets alongside Michał "⁠MICHU⁠" Müller, who was reportedly still being considered as a potential signing until early April.

flameZ completes OG's lineup ahead of the BLAST Spring Showdown

This marks the second change in the European team in less than a month following the addition of Nikolaj "⁠niko⁠" Kristensen, who joined OG as a replacement for Nathan "⁠NBK-⁠" Schmitt after the Frenchman was benched due to in-game differences in late February.

"With Nikolaj and Shahar now joining the roster, we are confident that we can keep pushing the team towards the highest levels of Counter-Strike," OG's COO, Charlie Debs, said. "Shahar is an amazingly talented young player who already understands what it takes to perform at the highest level, and we will do our best to offer him the right tools to bloom even more this season."

The Israeli player has been transferred from Endpoint, where he made his name as an up-and-coming star in recent times. He averaged a 1.13 rating over the course of a seven-month tenure with the British organization, helping them reach the top 30 in the ranking and most recently qualify for the BLAST Premier Spring Showdown.

The same tournament is where flameZ will play his debut with OG. His new team has been pitted against Astralis in the first round of the single-elimination bracket, which will kick off on Tuesday, April 13.

OG's lineup is once again complete:

Finland Aleksi "⁠Aleksib⁠" Virolainen
United Kingdom Mateusz "⁠mantuu⁠" Wilczewski
Denmark Valdemar "⁠valde⁠" Bjørn Vangså
Denmark Nikolaj "⁠niko⁠" Kristensen
Israel Shahar "⁠flameZ⁠" Shushan

Denmark Casper "⁠ruggah⁠" Due (coach)

France Nathan "⁠NBK-⁠" Schmitt (benched)
Jordan Issa "⁠ISSAA⁠" Murad (benched)

what? im just questioning ur claim that mantu was a top5 awper, thats why i said "relax" as in "relax on the praise" i havent looked at the numbers or whatever, but even from faint memory im pretty sure they can't bear it out. and eye test obviously suggests that he isnt even really that close to top5 awpers.
2021-04-09 15:14
1 reply
Okay I misunderstood, my bad According to hltv mantuu was 22nd best player of 2020. There is 4-5 awpers on the list so he was atleast near top5 no bias (maybe a little bit). Now I don't think he is that high anymore because awpers like sh1ro and jame have been playing so well but I think that he still can be in top10 if he continues to deliver like in 2020 Let's wait and see how this new OG roster plays out Link: twitter.com/Tgwri1s/status/1349792644138..

Well, where michu has shown his potential? Flamez has at least played regularly while michu has played one tournament in a year.
2021-04-09 13:51
Or you could say michu had lots of chances to prove what he can do in a lot of mediocre teams, but he never raised that many eyebrows. Chances are he isn't gonna get much better, whereas this kid might turn out crazy good. Remember he is a Jew and shit, so likely pretty high iq, good money management skills etc etc

Why do you think being Jewish gives you high management and good money... if thats so that sounded so much like old stereotypes and was offensive to Jewish people.

2021-04-09 14:18
flameZ probably suits better their playstyle. I can see some areas where OG can choose flameZ over MICHU and i think its better. Because i can see that soon more teams are going to do roster changes + there's high chance that when he's gonna get that motivation back he might play better.

Everyone gets internet from the dubai line so everyone gets good ping on dubai expect Israel which gets its internet from EU and gets like 50-60 ping on EU servers and 180-190 ping on dubai servers. Thats why every middle eastern qualifier is a mess cause Israel wants to play quali on EU server and everyone else wants to play on dubai server. And issa cant travel due to restrictions but flameZ can

Salty MICHU fans incoming. "MICHU was never given a chance" Dude has been around for a while now. Why hasn't he gotten a chance? No it's not because his Polish. You poorlacks need to stop getting upset because nobody wants your old degenerating talent. This flameZ kid is new and he's got a lot of potential. He can be molded into whatever type of player OG need him to be. MICHU lacks that versatility and they need more fresh blood. They don't need another veteran. This is the better timeline.

I loved them, I love OG. The dota 2 roster show incredible thing in the past so did csgo squad did (only true haters deny it). But this roster will go nowhere and will disband in the next 3-4 months. Let's be crystal clear, they can't beat Astralis. The next events they could do are the RMR Europe tournament and the IEM Summer in June. Maybe in Cologne for the ESL One if they are picked as Wild Card. It's extremely sad to see that a team that reaches the top 6 will most probably disband during the summer break. And I already see the Aleksib's fan club coming "yEaH bUt yOu ArE a FaN of NBK". That's true. Anyway, my analysis of the current shape of OG is not wrong neither. I will reconsider my position ONLY if they manage to beat Astralis and qualify for the Showdown (something that is so much irrealistic I already laugh while writing it).

LUL you only change your mind when they go for the top 2 in an event with 16 teams and with teams that shouldn't be there when you consider their level the past year. Next time you say "I only change my mind when OG prove god existence" that could have a higher chance than to win blast showdown.

Bad move for me. They dont need more carrying guns, because they for mantuu and valde. Now they need very good anty. Is flameZ very good entry? With his expirience against tier 1 opponents close to 0? No. Is Michu good entry who proved himself in A lot of games against tier 1? Yes. They will washe flameZ up and achieve nothing special but I can be wrong.

Valde will never be a carry. he is just a better Xypx9. Valde is now there over a year and he still never carries a match. At some point, you should give up the idea.
