OG is regarded as one of the biggest esports organizations in the world. Not only this, but they are regarded as the best Dota 2 team in the world because of their various achievements. And now, after dominating the Dota 2 scene, they are now switching their attention towards another game, CS:GO. That’s right, the organization is returning to the CS:GO scene with a brand new roster that has just been announced.
OG’s First CS:GO Roster
OG recently revealed its first CS:GO roster, and it is filled with some of the best CS:GO players in the world. The new team consists of Nathan “NBK-” Schmitt, Aleksi “Aleksib” Virolainen, Valdemar “valde” Bjorn, Issa “ISSAA” Murad, and Mateusz “mantuu” Wilczewski. All five of these players are going to represent OG in the CS:GO scene for the very first time.
You've all been waiting for this!
After 4 Majors and 2 TI on Dota 2 it's now time to tame another colossus.

The organization sure has spent a lot of money on this new roster, especially on NBK-, Aleksib, and Valde. NBK- is a really amazing CS:GO player who previously played for Vitality. Aleksi, on the other hand, is the former captain of ENCE, while Vlade has been one of North’s biggest players for the past two years. ISSAA and Mantuu are also some of the best CS:GO players out there. ISSAA has played for various teams but was benched by HellRaisers in September. Since then, the latter has only remained on the bench. And finally, Mantuu is a former player for ALTERNATE aTTaX.
For those who don’t know, OG has been trying to get some of the best CS:GO players in the world in their first roster. Over the past few months, they have negotiated with various players but failed to bring them to their team. For instance, they reportedly talked with Valentin “poizon” Vasilev, who instead joined Complexity. Similarly, the organization also approached Elias “Jamppi” Olkkonen, but the latter had some other problems. Jamppi basically has an old VAC-ban account, something that might prevent him from participating in CS:GO majors.
All Eyes Will Be Set
At the moment, many fans are eagerly waiting to see whether Aleksib will be able to make this team as successful as his previous one or not. Vlade is the second player on whom the eyes will be on. Everyone will want to know if he can again play like a top 20 player in the world or not. Although his performance has declined over the past few months, he is sure to make a big comeback.
While talking about the CS:GO scene, OG claimed that CS:GO represents everything they cherish about esports. While talking about the competition in the game, OG claimed that it is unbelievable as it keeps on increasing every season. With their new roster, OG is now the third big gaming organization to enter the world of CS:GO. Previously Evil Geniuses entered the CS:GO scene after acquiring NRG’s roster in September, while 100 Thieves also introduced their first CS:GO team in October. It will be exciting to see whether OG will be able to dominate CS:GO like they did with Dota 2 or not.
