In the first half of this year, OG, together with niko, failed to advance to the playoffs of all big LAN tournament, at which they competed, including ESL Pro League Season 17, IEM Rio 2023, BLAST.tv Paris Major 2023 and IEM Dallas 2023. Throughout this period, Kristensen filled the IGL role.
Information about niko's departure from OG appeared amidst rumors about the upcoming large-scale restructuring of the European roster. Earlier it became known that Shahar "flameZ" Shushan could also part ways with the team, while insider Aleksey "OverDrive" Biryukov told about Abdul "degster" Gasanov's desire to depart OG.
