Esports: valde and OG part ways after disappointment

Counter Strike: Global Offensive side OG Esports and Valdemar "valde" Bjorn Vangsa have reached a mutual decision to split after the team's recent poor results, including at the PGL Major Antwerp.

In the CS:GO PGL Major Antwerp, meanwhile, forZe are 8/15 to beat Imperial, who can be backed at 11/8 to prevail.

In the European RMR in the Major Antwerp, OG lost three of their five matches in the league stage, finishing tenth out of 16th teams.

Antwerp form leads to a change

It was a poor tournament performance from a side who are preparing themselves for the finals of the BLAST Premier Spring 2022 next month and, consequently, the team have responded with a big change to their roster.

Dane valde has been plying his trade for OG Esports since they entered play back in December 2019 and has since been an integral member.

But the 26-year-old is now set to part ways with the team following their disappointing results during Major Qualification and will move to the team's bench in the meantime while he looks for his new side.

The CS:GO player, who has also previously turned out for the likes of North and Heroic, believes the move is the right one for both parties and hopes he can spend this time and energy trying to find a new home within the Esport.

valde heads for a different road

Speaking about the mutual decision for him to leave OG, "valde" said: "I have been very happy here at OG and appreciate the people and the culture here, but sometimes you grow apart.

"In this case, we're seeing the road to achieve greatness differently and after a very disappointing RMR we have had long talks and have agreed to go our separate ways.

"Therefore we have agreed that I will step aside, while I spend my focus and energy on finding a new home where I can pursue my immediate ambitions."
