After the departure of Peter "stanislaw" Jarguz, Optic could not find a replacement for a long time. Some players have already tried to take the fifth place in the team, but unsuccessfully and the next player to be tested, as a replacement will be Jason "jasonR" Ruchelski.
When Peter "stanislaw" Jarguz left Optic Spencer "Hiko" Martin came in instead of him, but after an offensive 9-12 place on DreamHack Masters Las Vegas and 11-12th place on IEM Katowice, Hiko and peacemaker leave the team.
Among a meager list of players, especially for IGL, which the North American team needs, the Optic team is trying to find the best option. Soon after Hiko and peacemaker left the band Ryan "freakazoid" Abadir, joined her as a stand-in, although it was clear from the very beginning that it would be temporary. Now the American-Canadian-Spanish team will be headed by Jason "jasonR" Ruchelski, and the list of players looks like this:
Will "RUSH" Wierzba
Tarik "tarik" Celik
Óscar "mixwell" Cañellas
Keith "NAF" Markovic
