OG to bench valde and niko - Report

The European squad looks to be the first to move in anticipation of a post-Major shuffle.

OG have decided to bench Valdemar "⁠valde⁠" Bjørn Vangså and Nikolaj "⁠niko⁠" Kristensen, according to a Tuesday report by 1pv.fr.

The decision comes after the European side was unable to live up to expectations in the European Regional Major Ranking tournament, where the team around Nemanja "⁠nexa⁠" Isaković went out in 9th-11th place with a 2-3 record and missed out on a spot at the PGL Major Antwerp.

valde and niko could be looking for new homes soon

The disappointing showing in Bucharest, which came as a result of upsets at the hands of forZe and Eternal Fire, followed OG's last-place finish at the IEM Katowice main event two months before that, a stark contrast to the team's impressive first showing in their debut with nexa at BLAST Premier Spring Groups.

It appears that despite only having about four months with the new roster, OG have decided to pull the plug already in anticipation of the aftermath of the Major, which often results in several teams looking for changes and players seeking out new opportunities.

It's not the first time that rumors are swirling around valde and his potential exit from OG in recent times, as at the beginning of the year the Dane was linked with a move to Evil Geniuses.

In an extensive interview with HLTV.org conducted in March, without sharing any concrete names the 26-year-old confirmed that he had received "strong" offers both in the winter off-season and in the summer before that, which didn't come to fruition as a result of poor timing.

valde: "I've always strived to become a world champion; I don't care if people think it's overambitious"

In the same interview, when asked about his current deal with OG (lasting until the end of 2022) and where he wants to be by the end of the year when renegotiation talks happen, the Dane said that he wants to be "on the team that is contending for titles" and to "go to every Major there is and eventually hold the Major trophy" — a far cry from where his current team stands at the moment.

valde's departure would leave OG with just one of the founding members of the team remaining in Mateusz "⁠mantuu⁠" Wilczewski. niko has been with the squad since March 2021, having replaced Nathan "⁠NBK-⁠" Schmitt in the first set of moves the team made a year and a half after their inception.

A bit pretentious considering they've played 15 matches together. Nexa is simply not cut out to be a decent IGL. Before G2, he was a star player, especially in CR4ZY where he relied on emi's tactics and letn1's mid round calls.
2022-05-10 21:17
2 replies
Someone who actually gets it. G2 decided to get a real IGL and if I was nexa now I would definetely look for a team where I would NOT need to be an IGL but could either be a lurker or even a support player if the team is like top5 material. I would not even consider renewing contract for OG. The ambition just isnt there. OG has no interest in spending to win. They lost their best piece which was a top tier IGL and now the second best piece, a top tier multirole player is likely to be sold off to a better team. OG will become a mini-mouz. Budget academy team but not quite as good. No one with actual tier 1 aspirations and ability should be on this team.

This team could work really well, AZR would take the more supportive roles from nexa and nexa could come back to his more aggressive playstyle from CR4ZY days
2022-05-11 10:28
+1 nexa has previously played with jks and AZR in renegades. The chemistry would be awesome.

2022-05-10 22:48
shit for years? he averaged a 1.11 rating last year and is currently an average 1.12 rating this year...compare that with xyps ratings lol and btw look up the roles he played when NBK and Issa were in oG (the period where he performed the best) he had literally all Xyps CT positions.... ramp on nuke, b anchor on mirage, b inferno etc. not to mention he puts up a lot more entry frags on the t-side than xyp ever did.
2022-05-10 20:16
5 replies
He was not playing any support roles last year. 1.11 rating as a star player vs xypex roles. Slighty better, not a game changer. He was second calling in OG for ages, did you see how good OG was ? I didn't. He is good, but he is overated.
2022-05-10 20:27
2 replies
He was playing support positions in the entire period where NBK and Issa were in oG and was most definitely a game changer in that role. Secondly, why would it benifit his performance being a "second caller" that's like claiming the IGL should be top fragger lol He is providing more assists, enemy flashes, and opening kills than xyp9x. Basically an upgrade in every aspect. hltv.org/stats/lineup/players/flashes?li.. hltv.org/stats/lineup/players/flashes?li..

I'm not saying valde in 2019 was not good/great, but Cerq & Stewie was still good back then. He is better than Xypex, but Valde doesn't solve all the problems. Also, Valde likes to call and this team have already 3 vocal players. Imo Valde is past prime and is still good/okayish.
2022-05-10 23:47
astralis needs to do this ancient it would make them a top 5 team imo and valde is the perfect fit for them

Yes, sure. But NA and especially EG? Rofl no. EG is a garbage team. If EG bench their whole roster and signs 5 new players then sure. But it would be such a stupid move from Valde if he joined EG when he 100% could get an offer from either Astralis, *EU team* or maybe even Heroic if they want to bench Refrezh.
2022-05-10 19:48
I was just saying that bc i saw a report on EG looking to target valde. plus, maybe he could revive EG by bringing a fresh face in. Although, on the other hand, I really don't know how itll work with stewie IGLing
2022-05-10 23:03

Yeah i know about that. But i REALLY doubt he would move to NA and especially EG. If he joins EG then they will most likely bench the whole roster and build a team around Valde in NA or EU. Valde would waste his career if he joined this current garbage EG roster.

Igrali su zajedno u CR4ZYu i dugogodisnji su prijatelji to je jedini razlog zasto sam pomislio da bi moglo da se desi , takodje OG ne voli da daje puno novca na igrace :)

Astralis je najbolji scenario za njega definitivno a i za Astralis je on napredak u odnosu na xypa tako da bi trebalo da pozure dok ga neko drugi nije ugrabio

Might be better options than niko for sure but I don't think he was the problem with OG. OGs best 3 players come nowhere near a lot of the top 10 cores. Mantuu seems to be the only decent player on the roster.

The issue is he just signed so his buyout will prob be pretty big and he also isn’t as proven as some other options (I think he’s good for sure just not as proven as someone like yekindar or jks). Fnatic was honestly the perfect place for him; not super high expectations but good partnerships and resources. Would have bees great place for him to transition from “good player” to “star” similar to how jks did on RNG before being top 20 on 100T

2022-05-10 20:23
For all the people still screaming here, valde defo has an offer. Probably from astralis. And if astralis dont get valde now they just wait 3-4 months for the price to come down enough to get him anyway.
2022-05-10 20:26
They should get Yekindar, maybe they were already planning to do so. And one strong support player, because they do need that if they kick Niko. Maybe they could get Fl1t as well and just dismantle Outsiders some more. Or they could try to poach ForZe for Jerry. Nexa is good, but he doesn't want to do it.
