The International 2018 champions, OG, has made another roster change ahead of the Bucharest Minor that kicks off later this week. For those who haven’t been following OG’s recent roster changes, you should know that OG recently announced that Per Anders “Pajkatt” Olsson Lille would be stepping into the team to replace the amazing Ana, but now it seems that due to “chemistry issues” after the roster change, OG has bid farewell to Pajkatt.
In an announcement last week, OG explained the situation and noted that they will have trails for a replacement but there isn’t really a lot of time, is there.
We realized there was not enough space in OG for Pajkatt to express his full potential. His profile, at the end of the way, no matter how excellent it is, did not match. Team chemistry is a very complex matter, and regardless of how competent an individual is, sometimes the puzzle just doesn’t come together. That being said, we hope the stay was mutually beneficial. Huge thanks and all the best Pelle!
So who could possibly fill the boots of Ana then? Well, it seems that on a trial basis, it will be Russian player Igor “iLTW” Filatov, who has stood in for Pajkatt when he was unavailable due to illness. It will be very interesting to see how OG performs in the first Minor of 2019, especially with a new player on board.
The current OG roster sorted by position is:
- Igor “iLTW” Filatov
- Topias “Topson” Taavitsainen
- Sebastien “Ceb” Debs
- Jesse “Jerax” Vainikka
- Johan “n0tail” Sundstein
