    iLTW to stand-in as OG's newest carry

    Igor "iLTW" Filatov will be standing-in a OG's new carry player, the organization announced on Friday.

    Добро пожаловать Игорь!
    We're glad to welcome iLTW, standing in as our pos 1 player.

    The news arrives after yesterday's announcement that OG and their former carry, Per Anders "Pajkatt" Olsson Lille, had parted ways. Pajkatt had been brought in about a month ago to replace Anathan "ana" Pham, who decided to take a break from competitive play following OG's miraculous victory at The International 2018.

    iLTW's debut with OG happened during today's match against Vega Squadron as part of WePlay Winter Madness, where OG came out victorious. The appearance was presumably to determine whether he and OG have the right chemistry, as the team announced in yesterday's statement that they would be "holding try-outs to fill out the carry position."

    AmaNEk parts ways with LDLC

    François "AmaNEk" Delaunay's contract with LDLC expired as of Friday, the player announced on Friday.


    I couldn't see myself starting a new project straight away and I prefer to take a step back to not make a thoughtless decision about the rest of my career. I will come back as soon as I am 100% ready !

    The French player had been a member of LDLC since mid-May, when he joined the organization alongside David "devoduvek" Dobrosavljevic and Timothée "DEVIL" Démolon.
