The struggling North American team OpTic gets the chance to redeem themselves as participants in IEM Sydney, which is set to start in May.
RUSH and co. in OpTic had a rough time in Katowice, losing all of their matches. The question is if they’re going to be able to bring it in Australia, Sydney, against top opponents like Astralis and SK. Due to having to release “Hiko” from the active roster, it’s a bit unclear who their fifth player will be.
Rumor has it that the popular Twitch streamer Mohamad “m0e” Assad will join the American squad as a stand-in. But no words yet on whether he will travel with OpTic to Sydney.
