CS:GO Roster Round Up

StarSeries & i-League Season 8 is currently underway; however, there are still many free agents in the CS:GO market. Teams are finalizing their CS:GO rosters and organizations such as OG, 100Thieves, Dignitas and Splyce have yet to announce their complete rosters.

Here are the most significant roster changes in the CS:GO world recently.

Tomáš “oskar” Šťastný’s contract with Hellraisers has come to its conclusion and the Czech sniper is now a free agent. Oskar reached his best form during his time on mousesports but had a relatively quieter time on Hellraisers. The CIS team finished 12-14th at the StarLadder Berlin Major 2019.

The Swedish team is rebuilding their roster and coaching staff after parting ways with Get_RiGhT. NiP brought back a familiar face in THREAT who can help deepen the team’s strategic depth.

THREAT is not new to NiP and was a crucial part of the roster’s climb to the Number One rank in 2016. He joins Pita on the coaching staff for NiP.

Windigo’s dismal results following SECTOR: MOSBET and their last-place finish at ESL Pro League Season 10 Group stages culminated in a roster change for the team.

Movistar Riders made changes to their CS:GO team and added Lucas ‘steel’ Lopes, the first Brazilian player to their CS:GO roster. Their roster shuffle also brings back a familiar face for the Spanish team. Joining Movistar Riders will be Christian ‘loWel’ Garcia Antoran.
