OpTic Gaming’s Counter-Strike team is in search of a new home following recent business dealings. The buyout of OpTic Gaming from Infinite Esports by Immortals has resulted in multiple teams for the same games and thus a conflict of interest.
This will in turn cause Immortals Gaming Club as they’ve been dubbed to release some teams or find them new homes. This includes the Overwatch League’s Houston Outlaws and the OpTic Gaming Counter-Strike roster. Immortals also own the Brazilian side of MIBR and have committed to holding on to that team instead.
The CS:GO team’s coach Casper “ruggah” Due put out the word himself via Twitter stating that “due to our situation in OpTic Gaming, the CS:GO team is searching for a new home.” He concluded by saying that interested parties should reach out to him and that he, in turn, would “facilitate communication with the administration.”
In both an attempt to potentially up the teams stock as well as provide a bit more information he added another tweet listing the leagues the OpTic lineup is currently a part of and the events they’ve earned a spot in.
Options look limited unless we see esports organizations like Dignitas, Team SoloMid, 100T or others jump into the space once again.
