niko benched from OG's starting roster

The 23-year-old has been moved to the bench and is free to explore his options elsewhere.

It has been confirmed that Nikolaj "⁠niko⁠" Kristensen has been relieved of his duties as a member of the active roster. The move comes after initial reports of both niko and Valdemar "⁠valde⁠" Bjørn Vangså getting benched earlier in the month, with the latter then confirmed to be out of the active roster.

OG confirm valde benching

niko was originally brought on to replace the outgoing Nathan "⁠NBK-⁠" Schmitt back in March of 2021, and has since achieved varying degrees of success with the organization, picking up a 2nd place finish at IEM Summer 2021, and 3rd-4th at ESL Pro League Season 14.

niko's future is now up in the air after being benched

Entering the new year OG acquired Nemanja "⁠nexa⁠" Isaković from G2, swapping in-game leaders and thus parting ways with long-time caller Aleksi "⁠Aleksib⁠" Virolainen. The transfer instantly gave a lot of OG's fans excitement moving forward, however a dismal last place finish at IEM Katowice and failing to qualify for the PGL Major Antwerp altogether were results that fell well below expectations.

"Sometimes good things must come to an end. I’ve been allowed to explore my options from OG and ready for a new adventure", niko said on his official Twitter account.

"I have absolutely loved every second of my time with what now feels like a second family and hope to see them center stage in the nearby future."

OG's current lineup is now:

PolandMateusz "⁠mantuu⁠" Wilczewski
IsraelShahar "⁠flameZ⁠" Shushan
SerbiaNemanja "⁠nexa⁠" Isaković

DenmarkCasper "⁠ruggah⁠" Due (Coach)

Denmark Valdemar "⁠valde⁠" Bjørn Vangså (benched)
Denmark Nikolaj "⁠niko⁠" Kristensen (benched)

Nah. Latvian is a Slavic language. Livonian is a Finno-Ugric language. The two are not related other than for the fact that Livonian was spoken in modern-day Latvia in the past.

I meant that they are both in the Balto-Slavic language tree but you’re right of course as in that’s how far the association goes. But my real point was that there is no connection to Livonian other than geographically.
2022-05-26 14:06
Latvian is not a Slavic language. Just because Russia invaded Latvia doesn't mean Latvia ist either slavic nor eastern european, it's a huge misconception, my mom is Latvian and I was born there. Latvia is the Baltic and is culturally, linguistically and mentally much closer with Scandinavia than Russia/Eastern Europe.

Tournament winnings are less than 10% of a teams revenue, winning TI doesn't make a team rich. It makes the players rich and gives the team exposure which helps.

It's not impossible to know. They aren't franchised in any leagues at all, so no revenue sharing. There is no VC who has given them money. They are living off sponsorships. You cannot compare OG with teams who have hundreds of millions in funding.

They clearly are not capable of that, they couldnt even keep their ESL partner spot cause they're running on such a low budget. Ppl thinking that the org is rich because of their TI wins are retarded. The price money goes to the players not the org. Besides oG barely has any sponsors compared to the big orgs out there.

Do you understand the difference between an individual and a corporation? Tim Cook is not worth a trillion dollars because apple is worth that. n0tails personal money has *nothing* to do with OG. OG is a private corporation, partially owned by some of the players, and partially funded by 2 of the players. Their TI winnings constitute a minimal amount to their funding, as most of that money is distributed to the players, and most of the players are not part of the ownership group.

Because I can't tell if you're trolling or not. You can literally view OG's financial statements online -> datacvr.virk.dk/enhed/virksomhed/4003588.. They are doing OK, but you cannot in any way, shape or form compare those numbers with the big dogs in eSports, OG are a poor team in comparison and cannot afford these big name players.

No of course not. But at the same time, it would be unlikely they bench 2 acceptable danish players to take in other danish players. It would obviously improve the flow of the game to have more of the same nationality. Not saying it's impossible they take in others, but at the same time, somewhat unlikely. There's great players with potential outside of the danish scene that could fit this project better during the circumstances

Another kid strikes the internet. Grow up and learn how the real world works. Also, learn to read between the lines. I'm gonna be extremly clear so 10iq people like you can understand. Danes play well with danes. Benching 2 danes and keeping everyone else would imply that they aren't looking for an extended danish roster as of right now and wont be strictly looking for danish people, it would be unlikely they manage to take an danish player from a full danish roster and putting it in an international, cause he wouldn't be as comfortable and as a result would play worse. The obvious conclusion, it's a higher chance they're looking for other nationalities than danes. Sure, they still CAN, but it would be a stupid choice, probably something that someone like you in the leader role would make. Learn to take conclusions instead of writing dumb shit, you primate ape.

"kick" He got bought/exchanged. But probably because nexa dropping them to all-time low ranking was the final nail in the coffin for OG and they had to do something.

Or it has to do with their Dota team starting kicking asses. They like signed 5 new players for their Dota team for free (most of them are newcomers) and so they started destroying EU, won the EU league and the major.

Keep mantuu and nexa, reconsider flamez position in roster. He's entry fragger but not very impactful especially on LAN. Would like for someone like Yekindar to replace him. Also team need a "experienced and have good read" player that can become a second caller, someone like nbk. And last one should be a lurker who also can do well as CT anchor on the other Bomb side with the second caller. Jks?

Imagine Mantuu, Nexa, Snax, JKS and Yeki in OG. Not happening probably but would have been awesome. Btw. Snax can still at the highest lvl and he will prove that at IEM Dallas.

JKS actually makes a lot of sense, FlameZ is a super aggressive entry-fragger and this OG roster doesn’t really have a proper lurker/clutch baiter so JKS would get to slot in to doing what he’s most comfortable with. Yekindar would be nice but I bet he gets better offers tbh.

In my opinion, if yekindar comes to OG, they definitely look better than VP on the paper. flamez is better than qikert or flit. mantuuu also have a better performance these days. If nexa can get back to sexa mode of 2019, I think OG's new roster is gonna be so good. Let's just compare with Ence's roster. Yekindar+flamez+jks maybe someone else, the firepower is as good as spinx+dycha+maden. mantuu is way better than hades obviously, and nexa is also better than snappi, well snappi is probably better at call. OG will surprise us in the future.

a team is not better just cuz has better players thats the problem of OG , Also yekindar wont go to OG i mean you are one of the best players (with a lot of fans) ,every top tier team must try to sign him.
