Danish Counter-Strike team OpTic Gaming has expressed interest in adding Rene ‘TeSeS’ Madsen, according to multiple sources close to the team. If they were to add TeSeS, it is expected that he would replace Marco ‘Snappi’ Pfeiffer on the active roster.
TeSeS is eighteen years old and currently a member of GoldenGitte, an orgless Danish Counter-Strike team. His history in CS:GO is brief, first appearing on the semi-professional scene during 2017 and joining Reason Gaming during the final quarter of the year.
Since then, the only other organization he has played under is Squared Esports which he joined for six months in 2018. From a statistical standpoint, TeSeS is far and away the best rated player on his current team.
Snappi is expected to make way, if TeSeS joins OpTic.
Snappi has an extensive history in Counter-Strike with a professional career stretching as far back as 2008. He is primarily known as an in-game leader but gave up that role upon the acquisition of Mathias ‘MSL’ Lauridsen from Rogue.
Snappi joined OpTic Gaming in April of 2018 after spending almost two years with Heroic. During his time with the team they didn’t win any international tournaments, but finished runner-up at DreamHack Open Summer 2018 and cs_summit 3.
OpTic Gaming have been in the headlines as of late with multiple outlets reporting their parent company Infinite Esports & Entertainment being up for sale.
The front runner to acquire Infinite has been reported to be Immortals Gaming Club, but a deal hasn’t been officially announced at this time. OpTic Gaming CEO Hector ‘H3CZ’ Rodriguez is reported to be currently in negotiations to reacquire the OpTic Gaming brand.
DreamHack Open Fall 2020 is underway and the event is stacked with some of Europe’s most elite competition vying for the lion’s share of $115,000 and more Regional Major Rankings (RMR) points for higher standing.
There are of course the top-ranked teams that can be seen as favorites for the event like Astralis, BIG, Heroic, Vitality, G2 Esports, OG, FaZe Clan, and more. But there are also teams like Sprout, North, and mousesports who are coming from the Closed Qualifiers, looking to make a dent in the event.
The field of 16 teams has been split into four different groups that will decide the 12 orgs who will eventually move on to the Double-Elimination bracket playoffs.
