Ismail "refrezh" Ali joined OpTic Gaming's Counter-Strike: Global Offensive roster after the team has decided to part ways with Nikolaj "niko" Kristensen who was never announced as a permanent member after joining from North. 


The signing is for two years. 

Refrezh joins from Tricked Esports where many saw the potential the young player had. He recently was used as a stand-in for Cloud9 at BLAST Pro Series Lisbon where his flashy play caught the eye of the community. 


Many brands in the CS:GO realm are quickly trying to sign players before the Jan. 1 roster lock for the IEM Katowice Major.
