He’s done it again – MIBR’s Tarik ‘tarik’ Celik forgot what team he plays for and is a now officially the most forgetful CS:GO player on the planet!

You might think that leaving the North American team that you won a Valve sponsored Major with, and starting a new adventure with the most successful Brazilian core that the game has ever seen, would be something that sticks in your memory.

However, tarik completely forgot he was no longer a member of the Cloud9 roster after seeing the first round draw for the New Legends Stage at the FACEIT London Major.

“My first glance at this and I told my team “oh we play against Vega”… then I realized I’m not on Cloud9 anymore”, the popular player revealed!


This wouldn’t be so funny if it wasn’t for the fact that tarik made a very similar blunder in the past when he left OpTic Gaming and joined Cloud9. In fact, the MIBR star even references it in a response to his original tweet.

On that previous occasion, tarik’s mistake was actually caught on stream. Scrolling through the scheduled matches on HLTV, the rifler looked at OpTic Gaming’s scheduled match against Team Liquid and exclaimed “We play Liquid tomorrow? I don’t know if we know about that”!

He soon realized his mistake and was suitably embarrassed, saying “oh my god I’m tripping bro, I’m not even on OpTic… bro, what am I doing?!”

Luckily for the 22-year-old, this time around there were no cameras to catch him out when he forgot that he has been a part of the MIBR lineup since July…

Tarik and MIBR (no tarik, not Cloud9) have been drawn against TyLoo for their opening match at the $1 million tournament. Cloud9, on the other hand, will begin their title defense against the always dangerous Vega Squadron.

OG Esports to kick NBK-

After an exciting debut in the CSGO space, OG Esports are making a change to their lineup and it’s NBK- who is going to get cut, first reported by ViKarM.

Within a year of OG’s existence in CSGO, the org managed to be a top 10 team but have struggled to make deep runs at events, let alone win some trophies.

If they drop NBK-, then OG will be looking to make improvements in its formula, which could signal that the club is ready to make a play on a big signing.
