Optic Gaming sign Refrezh to their roster.
Optic Gaming has announced the signing of Ismail “refrezh” Ali. The former Fragsters player is a young 20-year-old player and has proven to be very promising. He was recently a stand-in for Cloud9 at the Blast Pro Series Lisbon. He had a strong 1.06 rating at the event despite it being his first ever big LAN event.

With the European minor coming up very soon,Refrezh will be playing on Team Optic. Optic Gaming has a Danish lineup and Refrezh will have extremely good synergy with the rest of the team. They will compete in the European minor which starts on the 16th of January 2019. It will continue for a period of 5 days until the 20th.
Team Optic’s current roster is as follows:
- Marco “Snappi” Pfeiffer
- Kristian “k0nfig” Wienecke
- René “cajunb” Borg
- Jakob “JUGi” Hansen
- Nikolaj “niko” Kristensen
- Ismail “refrezh” Ali
Bond1ik joins Gambit Gaming on Trial
Meanwhile, in the CIS Scene, Vladyslav “bondik” Nechyporchuk has signed with Gambit Gaming. The team is not as strong as before when they won the PGL Krakow Major, however with Bond1k they hope to prove a point. He is one of the most experienced players in the CIS region and is well-respected by the best players in the scene.
He will initially be on trial with the team. He will replace D1masick who is now put on the bench.
He is experiencing discomfort, and it is difficult for him to alter his way of thinking since his own style is based on individual play. We’d love for Dima to perform at his best, but he is currently unable to do it within our system. Unfortunately, we do not have an option to wait for him to undergo this transformation, whereas altering an entire system to suit his needs is suboptimal.
Dimas has potential that he can realize in a team that is willing to play around him.
