CS2 The leader and in-game shooter, Nemanja “nexa” Isaković, left OG on November 21st, ending a nearly two-year stint.
Nexa’s departure from OG comes two weeks after G2 reportedly parted ways with Australian star Justin “jks” Savage, and HLTV reported that Nexa was one of the players considered to fill Jks’ spot. Should the move go through, Nexa would return to G2 after leaving the organization in January 2022.
At the moment it remains unclear what OG plans to do with it CS2 Division, as the organization currently only consists of Maciej “F1KU” Miklas, Iulian “regali” Harjău and Nils “k1to” Gruhne. OG recently benched Dion “FASHR” Derksen on November 14th and has struggled to find his footing there CS2.
Most notably, as OG pointed out in the announcement of Nexa’s departure, the Serbian IGL led them to the IEM Rio Major in November 2022, the first Valve-sponsored tournament the organization has ever participated in Counterattack Esports.
Nexa’s time in the OG active lineup was briefly interrupted this year as he moved to the bench between February and June for personal reasons. The Serbian was rehired in June to lead OG’s new lineup with FASHR and k1to and initially struggled to accomplish anything meaningful CS2 Cycle.
On Twitter, Nexa gave no indication of where he’s going next and simply thanked OG for their time together. If he is indeed on his way to G2, we’ll likely get confirmation in the next few weeks as there are more prestigious tournaments coming soon, like the BLAST Premier Fall Final this week and the BLAST Premier World Final in December. and it’s unlikely that G2 will make such a radical change before it’s all over.
