Nexa returns to G2; replacing jks

The Counter-Strike rostermania continues

Nemanja "⁠nexa⁠" Isaković has announced his return to G2 esports after parting ways with OG. The 26-year-old Serbian player last played for G2 esports in 2022. He now returns to his old team after having played for over a year with OG albeit with limited success.

Nexa parts ways with OG

Nexa joined OG in January 2022, replacing AleksiB who joined G2 esports. He helped OG qualify for their first Major - the IEM Rio 2022. The team finished 17-19th along with GamerLegion and Team 9Z. While fans were expecting better results, it was still a commendable performance for a roster that was relatively new. The team’s final match in that event was against Vitality against whom they lost 1-2 in the first group stage.

However, earlier this year nexa stepped down from the active roster, watching from the sidelines as his team prepared for the BLAST.tv Paris Major. He joined the team after a few changes to the roster, when OG added three new players. However, the team’s performance has been lackluster, to say the least. They have been unable to make an impact even outside of tier 1 events, which further complicated problems for the team.

OG’s Counter-Strike roster is as follows:

  • Nils "⁠k1to⁠" Gruhne
  • Maciej "⁠F1KU⁠" Miklas
  • Iulian "⁠regali⁠" Harjău
  • Casper "⁠ruggah⁠" Due (coach)
  • Dion "⁠FASHR⁠" Derksen (benched)
  • Abdul "⁠degster⁠" Gasanov (benched) 

Returns to G2 esports

Soon after the OG announcement, it was revealed nexa will make his way back to G2 esports. He replaces jks on the roster. The latter has been linked to a potential move to Falcons, although it’s not officially announced just yet

With the recent changes, G2’s Counter-Strike roster is as follows:

  • Nikola "⁠NiKo⁠" Kovač
  • Nemanja "⁠huNter-⁠" Kovač
  • Ilya "⁠m0NESY⁠" Osipov
  • Rasmus "⁠HooXi⁠" Nielsen
  • Nemanja "⁠nexa⁠" Isaković
  • Jan "⁠Swani⁠" Müller (coach)
  • Justin "⁠jks⁠" Savage (benched)
