According to a report Friday by Flickshot, friberg, Magisk, allu and Kevin “HS” Tarn would join OpTic, which would pivot around Oscar “Mixwell” Canellas to a European roster in the wake of Tarik “tarik” Celik and Will “RUSH” Wierzba leaving for Cloud9. Keith “NAF” Markovic is listed on OpTic’s roster but said he isn’t a part of the starting five, and will stand in for the first week. According to Flickshot, the org has not been able to come to a resolution with a buyout for HS.
Magisk joins after being benched on North following the PGL Krakow Major last month, eventually being replaced with Valdemar “valde” Bjørn Vangså. He’s still only 19 years old but struggled through parts of this year. Allu was dropped by FaZe Clan last month to make room for Ladislav “GuradiaN” Kovacs.
