OG to sign degster - Report

The move would result in Mateusz "⁠mantuu⁠" Wilczewski being moved to the bench.

Russian AWPer Abdul "⁠degster⁠" Gasanov is set to join OG according to reports published by 1pv.fr and Dexerto. The 20-year-old impressed in his brief stint with the team back in June at BLAST Premier Spring Final, and now his presence in the squad will be made permanent.

The arrival of the new sniper means that mantuu will be moved to the bench after more than two years on the starting lineup, meaning none of the original OG members from the organization's entry into CS:GO in 2019 will be part of the squad.

degster will join OG on a permanent basis

degster left the starting Spirit lineup shortly after the team's campaign at the PGL Antwerp Major which saw them finish in the top four of the event. The player explained that his decision stemmed from reservations about the organization's desire to relocate its squad to Serbia, while the team also pointed to differences in philosophy.

degster attended BLAST Premier Spring Final with OG as mantuu was ruled out due to illness. The Russian impressed with the European squad in Portugal, accumulating a 1.16 rating during the team's run to the semi-final. In contrast, mantuu currently records a 1.08 rating at LAN in 2022.

The Polish-British AWPer was part of the inaugural OG lineup announced in late 2019 and he initially impressed with his performances in the first few months. Following several changes in the squad in 2022, OG decided that it was time to part ways with the 24-year-old ahead of the summer player break.

The reported OG lineup is:

Serbia Nemanja "⁠nexa⁠" Isaković
Poland Maciej "⁠F1KU⁠" Miklas
Czech Republic Adam "⁠NEOFRAG⁠" Zouhar
Israel Shahar "⁠flameZ⁠" Shushan
Russia Abdul "⁠degster⁠" Gasanov

Denmark Casper "⁠ruggah⁠" Due (coach)

Poland Mateusz "⁠mantuu⁠" Wilczewski (benched)
Denmark Valdemar "⁠valde⁠" Bjørn Vangså (benched)
Denmark Nikolaj "⁠niko⁠" Kristensen (benched)

No no i'm not saying that at all Junior is dogshit and should have been benched from coL at the very start I'm saying that mantuu 50% of the time plays like an actual t1 awper and the other 50% of the time plays as big as a bot as Junior Fuck coL and Junior if their management was smart and benched him they would actually have been a decent team and probably have been #1 NA before Liquid got YEKINDAR, instead they didnt and now we have only 1 NA team left
2022-07-14 19:28
Don't forget that he plays for 50/50 best NA team lol

cadian has been a tier 1 awper and igler for years now, degster isnt even close. broky peak > degster, and jame is a more veteran AWPer than degster that also IGLs a tier 1 team. The other names I gave are names similar to degster in terms of raw AWP firepower but haven't proven themselves yet. They are all at similar stages in their careers and will be interesting to see who ends up having a better career out of the names I said you can argue are better because they've all won nothing.

#149 if you're not basing your assessment off rating, then are you basing it off what they contribute and bring to the team? in that case AWP IGL's are quite valuable, moreso than degster.

Yes IGLs are very valuable to their team but not as awpers, but as IGLs. Put cadian on a rifle again and bring device in and heroic is most likely better.

I agree, that said, monesy will only continue to improve as well Happy for degster though, he's always been a beast for his teams and OG have a very powerful weapon on their team now. As for mantuu, far too many games where he didn't have the impact an awper should have, or missed some easy shots that cost them the game. He's had more than enough time to transition from young player to solid performer now but he'd still be a player that teams could pickup given his skill ceiling
2022-07-14 21:52
1 reply
He had a break due to problem with thumbs, so I wouldn't say that mantuu had that time. It all depends on the playstyle and in my opinion mantuu would be perfect replacement for hades in ENCE, because as I think they need aggressive awper and hades is very passive.

I will accept your second reason (trying to integrate new players in) but the first one is hardly an excuse. Remember Immortals/100T story?

Yeah and there's a reason everyone was confused about Immortals/100T. Voiding contracts like that is a waste of an org's money and honestly pretty questionable.

Mantuuu isn’t bad, it’s a lot like the device/nawwk situation. Nawwk wasn’t playing horrible but when you can get a player like device, it makes sense. Degster and device aren’t comparable but degster is an upgrade from mantuuu.

woah, never expected OG to pick up such a high tier player. Rip flameZ wrists though. x) mantuu still should go to a decent team imo though and it's more a playstyle mismatch perhaps that he has rating below 1.1 atm than lack of skill, but sadly he probably ends up wasting his career in Endpoint or something and will never get a chance anymore to shine.

Lol they were playing all the big tier 1 events. EPL, Cologne, Katowice where they reached semi final, Stockholm Major. They were a tier 1 team. If you consider mantuu a "proven tier 1 awper" then idk what to say. He is notoriously inconsistent and even when he shows up he's nothing special. Yes he can topfrag a series but what awper can't?
2022-07-14 21:06

dude you know i can search event history? Stop with this bs: EPL 17-20th place, Cologne 13-16th. My point still stands: they HAVEN'T showed anything in tier-1 except major fluke run which doesn't make degster a proven tier-1 player

But how is degster not a tier 1 player when he plays all the tier 1 tournaments, but mantuu who's not playing almost any of those tournaments is a tier 1 player? OG didn't even qualify for the last 2 majors, degstet did and he played in semi final in one of those. Only tier 1 tourneys I see OG playing lately is blast and that's because they are partnered with blast. Degster has way more tier 1 experience and has better stats as well so your statement makes no sense
2022-07-14 23:13

MOUZ, ENCE, Sprout are what comes to mind in Top20. I don't think other European/International teams require a new AWPer. mantuu used to be a rifler before joining OG. He can join other teams even as a rifler (and secondary AWPer) if teams need/want one. I think he's a Top10 AWPer that have the unfortunate luck of having inconsistent teammates.

Do we know Mantuu's buyout though? I agree logically it should be lower but I mean we dont have a reported number do we? Still doesn't make much sense to me to be honest, Mantuu is better, but is it worth getting him and risking the teams synergy? Hades knows the playstyle and fits the team well. IMO it's only worth kicking him for a guaranteed superstar like Degster because he can actually push you to winning championships, idk if Mantuu would do the same

Ye my point was that CoL will surely change one player (junior) and i think it is very likely they might change more, in that case this would make sense, cause team might be upgraded quite bit. I can image that if only CoL offer spot for mantuuu, he would not be interested, cause team would be too weak overall. But if they got alex (azr) instead of JT, and ideally one sick rifler instead of fang, then we're talking....

oh, but he wasnt entry. star role = awper awper = hades hades = 0.84 rating spinx = 1.09 rating
2022-07-17 19:51
Would be a huge upgrade and logical at that, given their strong run they had with him. Also, his personality seems to fit in the team.

2022-07-15 05:37
Honestly I feel bad for Spirit. They had something scary brewing with Chopper at the helm - but Degster was a key part of that. So now I think they're back to being not a contender for anything. I think Mantuu would defo be an upgrade for Ence though.

Don't feel bad, management handled the situation horribly... kicking a star player because he refused to move countries immediately upon request but would have moved if you gave him time... terrible. All depends on how W0nderful develops, Patsi can be the star of the team he just needs someone who can step up when he's having an off game

it happened, should not be a hasty decision, looking forward to see the his performance again Thank you mantuu for your contributions to in the past, you are good, but degster is better probably.

This is stupid why didnt they just keep him from the start but i'm glad hes in OG

Jackpot for everyone. The synergy seems perfect, and he will relocate to western europe most likely, which seems to be what he is looking for. I am happy for him and his GF, and for OG as well.
2022-07-15 14:49
why would they replace mantuu? hes definitely not the problem
