Sunflowers of the world, the rebuilding phase has begun!
Today, we are honored to be announcing the permanent addition of Nikolaj “niko” Kristensen to the OG CS:GO roster.
Proving himself as one of strongest assets of the Danish scene for half of the past decade, he has made a name for himself and worn some of the most prestigious colors in the kingdom, to finally attain the renown he deserves in 2020. He reached the top of the world ranking by winning two international events, including the prestigious ESL Cologne while playing under the Heroic banner.
Igniting the Danish Dynamite.
Among the pew pew boys, niko is in fact no stranger. Not only has he already played alongside valde and under ruggah’s umbrella, these gentlemen already claimed victories through their teamwork in the past. How can one forget niko and valde’s triumph at DreamHack Masters Stockholm 2018, one of the greatest achievements in their respective careers? We’re delighted to be welcoming a more than accomplished niko among our ranks. Even if we already had a glimpse of his abilities during ESL Pro League Season 13, we can’t wait to experience his firepower and clutching action in the OG jersey.
Our objective remains the same: reach and maintain the status of OG as one of the greatest teams in the world and carve our names in some of those shiny shiny trophies.
Nikolaj “niko” Kristensen:
“I’m happy to announce that I have signed for OG. It’s an amazing opportunity for me and I’m sure we’re going to achieve great things together. Also, I want to say thanks to Heroic for the memories and time together, I’m going to miss my previous team mates, but I’m also excited to open a new chapter of my career and join the OG ranks. I will do my best to make OG-fanbase proud!”
Aleksi “Aleksib” Virolainen:
“When we realised Nikolaj was available, he jumped to our top candidate for the team. Valde and Casper had a lot of insights on him already so it made the decision easier for us. In a short amount of time he has really impressed me, especially with how selfless he is and how he communicates with the team. Even though we have a lot to work on, our first task is to try our best in the EPL Groupstage. Let’s get it.”
Valdemar “valde” Bjørn Vangså:
“I’m really happy we got the chance to have Niko on our team. He brings a lot of good vibes and he’s also a really good teamplayer to have but can also add to the individual level of the squad. He also has a lot of experience from his previous teams, so in my opinion it’s a perfect match and I look forward to start grinding tournaments with him!”
JMR Luna (CEO of OG Esports):
“We would like to welcome Niko to the family and to the organization. We are thrilled to have him, and I believe together we can elevate OG CSGO to the next level. He is incredibly talented and I think he will gel really well with the team. I feel very optimistic about the future!”
