EasTor joins OFFSET

The Spanish player and Portuguese organization link up again after parting ways in late 2020.

OFFSET have announced the signing of Rajohn "⁠EasTor⁠" Linato after coming to an agreement with VELOX for the transfer of the Spanish AWPer.

The move comes shortly after Ricardo "⁠fox⁠" Pacheco, who had been manning the 'Big Green' since the beginning of the year in the Portuguese team, announced he would be stepping back from competition.

EasTor will be on sniping duties in the Portuguese squad

EasTor's signing by OFFSET will mark his second stint with the Portuguese organization, which he joined in August 2020 after being benched by Movistar Riders and left at the end of the year.

In early 2021 the Spaniard then joined VELOX, a Spanish-Argentine venture that struggled to find breakthrough results even at a local level, and stood in for 9z in their BLAST Premier Spring Showdown run in April, helping them overcome Vitality in the single-elimination bracket.

The 27-year-old's second tour with OFFSET will be very different than the first, however, as the team EasTor is now joining has nothing to do with the one he departed last year. The roster he first joined with the likes of Joao "⁠KILLDREAM⁠" Ferreira and Luís "⁠ZELIN⁠" Lousada was completely overhauled to make way for the current core under coach Vasco "⁠vsk⁠" Santos.

OFFSET are now:

Portugal Rui "⁠RIZZZ⁠" Lima
Portugal Filipe "⁠NOPEEJ⁠" Dias
Portugal Bruno "⁠shellzi⁠" Teixeira
Portugal Diogo "⁠snapy⁠" Rodrigues
Spain Rajohn "⁠EasTor⁠" Linato

Portugal Vasco "⁠vsk⁠" Santos (coach)

Portugal Ricardo "⁠fox⁠" Pacheco (benched)

Why they keep taking chances on those washed ups? Aint there any young awpers with sick aim and actually have room for development?
2021-07-28 23:31

because young people have no interest in counter strike here, pretty much (same goes for Portugal, most likely)

hm deathzz was one of the best players from that core... he will be joining exploit most likely as it will be 2 portuguese (obj +?) , 2 spanish (deathzz and ?) and the last guy will be a danish player (maybe larsen?)

Yes he is very skilled and sAw shouldn't let him go, it will end up happening like the old VP, they didn't want to make roster changes until they were too old and it was too late. So far they missed sausol, Sunpayus and now DeathZz. But as for Iberian Family.. both players and staff considered that they needed another kind of player to improve as a team.

sunpayus said in stream or in a interview that he is pretty happy with the iberian family roster and he doesnt want to leave them although I think that stadodo with the awp is not that good as sunpayus but anyways i completely agree with you, saw is destroying themselves just cuz they dont want to kick roman and arki, but those two had better shapes in game nopeej could fit in that team but lets see

worst team ? last time offset and iberian family faced each other Offset won 2-1 and Deathz is out so they won't be capable to be at the level they were anymore

they throwed this match that you are talking about, that day Kairi wasn't in the server so a lot of rounds that they should have easily won or even closing the nuke was not possible because of that, but they defeated Movistar Riders easy in the same competition, and everybody who follows the iberian scene knows that Iberian are way better than OFFSET. as for DeathZz, they benched him because it will make them better long term in their opinion... obviously short-term is a step back but OFFSET also lost fox

Where has this guy been? I didn't see him since he was benched by Movistar Riders. He was totally trash there, maybe he will be better now, it won't be easy to replace god fox.

disbanding guaranteed for offset now
