Aleksib and nexa swap agreed - Report
Aleksi "Aleksib" Virolainen will take over the helm of G2 while Nemanja "nexa" Isaković moves to OG as a deal has been reached between the two organizations, 1pv.fr and Dexerto have reported on Wednesday.
The move is expected to be the final piece for G2's 2022 roster puzzle, as the Finnish in-game leader will join fresh signings Ilya "m0NESY" Osipov and yet-to-be-unveiled former Vitality coach Rémy "XTQZZZ" Quoniam as a part of a large overhaul.
G2 will be hoping that their activity on the transfer market will translate to success on the server, seeing that the team's last Big event trophy dates back to 2017. But the significant overhaul that has been done of the winter break, bringing in a new coach, in-game leader, and AWPer, will surely require a significant adaptation period.
On the other hand, nexa's departure from G2 will end his two-year cooperation with the Berlin-based organization, and see the 24-year-old part ways with Nemanja "huNter-" Kovač after more than three years spent together. His new challenge will be to reform an underperforming OG squad, ranked 17th in the world, who could also be losing one of their key players in Valdemar "valde" Bjørn Vangså.
G2's lineup for next year is looking as follows:
As of now, OG is expected to have the following lineup:
