Kristian "k0nfig" Wienecke and Jakob "JUGi" Hansen will leave OpTic Gaming's Counter-Strike: Global Offensive roster and join Cloud9's, according to a report published Monday by Dust2.
The two Danish players joined OpTic's all-Danish lineup in early 2018 as part of the organization's attempt to mirror the success of the all-Danish Astralis. That experiment has failed to pan out, as the team has wanted for impactful wins since its creation. A disappointing fifth-eighth finish at the World Electronic Sports Games earlier this month may have sounded the death knell for the team.
The biggest reason for being a @Cloud9 fan for me is the attitude and fire in NA players and Rosters. Newest rumors are jugi and konfig and it makes me so sad....— soki34 (@realsoki34) March 18, 2019
Should the transfers go through as reported (h/t HLTV), Cloud9's roster will include Timothy "autimatic" Ta, William "RUSH" Wierzba, Maikil "Golden" Selim, k0nfig and JUGi, following Fabien "kioShiMa" Fiey's departure.
OpTic, meanwhile, would be left with Marco "Snappi" Pfeiffer, René "cajunb" Borg and Ismail "refrezh" Ali.
