OG CS:GO Sign Coach ruggah

Just two days ahead of ICE London, OG CS:GO have signed a coach for their international roster. Casper “ruggah” Due will be joining the team for their 2020 campaign.

Ruggah has plenty of experience in the Counter-Strike scene, stemming all the way back to CS:Source. He was originally a player who resided mostly in the lower tiers of competition. When CS:GO rolled around, ruggah transitioned to a coaching role after a few years as a player.

His first coaching gig was with Dignitas in 2016. Ruggah helped to lead the Danish squad to some big-name tournament wins such as EPICENTER 2016. The following year, Dignitas dropped their CS:GO team, leading them to join a new Danish organization in North.

While the team had flashes of brilliance, North wasn’t a consistent competitor. Ruggah was one of the first to get the boot. He then joined OpTic Gaming alongside many of his usual players. The team played for a year and a half before the organization closed it’s CS:GO division in October of 2019.

Now with OG, ruggah has a big task ahead of him. He has never coached an international roster before. Having only been on all Danish teams in the past, ruggah will have to bring a diverse group together both in and out of game.

OG has struggled out of the gate. A great leader is able to elevate the team around him, so OG’s upcoming appearances at ICE London and BLAST Premiere Spring will be a big indicator for this team’s trajectory.

 

OG’s roster is:

Nathan “NBK-“ Schmitt
Aleksi “Aleksib” Virolainen
Valdemar “valde” Bjørn
Issa “ISSAA” Murad
Mateusz “mantuu” Wilczewski
