Parts Ways With iLTW
After the departure of Per Anders "Pajkatt" Olsson in January, OG brought in Espada's carry player Igor "iLTW" Filatov as a stand-in and try-out for the roster. Today, OG announced that they will not be bringing him on as a full member of the team and will part ways with him immediately:
We announce today that Igor “iLTW” Filatov will no longer be part of the roster. Igor has been an amazing player to work with, he’s been as professional as one could expect, and his potential is obvious. However, the DPC season puts a team on a timer and we unfortunately had to come to the decision to part ways with him, as we are still not meeting the results we aim at.
For fans of OG this can't come as too big of a shock. The team has been struggling after winning the Aegis at The International 2018, and have not managed to qualify for a single Major so far this season. With the end of the regular season drawing closer they felt a change was needed.
According to the announcement OG already has a replacement for iLTW lined up and who that is will be announced in the next couple of days.
