On Thursday, December 21, OG unveiled the signing of MOUZ NXT Counter-Strike player Bram "Nexius" Campana. The 20-year-old joins OG as a replacement for Dion "FASHR" Derksen, who left the team in November.

With the addition of Nexius, OG are now left with just one more spot left to fill on the Counter-Strike roster, following the recent departures of Adam "NEOFRAG" Zouhar, FASHR, and Nemanja "nexa" Isaković.

Nexius started his Counter-Strike career in early 2020 with Join The Force. In 2021, he joined LowLandLions and, in 2022, moved to eClubBrugge. Nexius stayed with eClub Brugge for just over two months before joining MOUZ NXT on trial.

The 20-year-old spent just two months as a trial and, in November 2022, signed a permanent contract with MOUZ's secondary roster, with who he has accomplished a lot. 

Nexius also got a brief call-up to the main team for Intel Extreme Masters Sydney as a replacement for Jimi "Jimpphat" Salo and averaged a 0.93 performance rating in his maiden S-Tier tournament, helping the team reach the semi-finals.

Nexius put up a solid 1.05 performance rating across the last season for the academy outfit and led the team to the CCT North Europe Series 5 title. With MOUZ NXT, the rifler peaked at no.59 in the world rankings and proved himself as one of the most promising young talents in the scene.

OG Rebuild

OG's signing of Nexius comes amid a major roster overhaul, which started in July with the departure of NEOFRAG. Last month, OG also parted ways with FASHR and nexa, who returned to G2 Esports, leaving OG with just three active players on the active lineup.

The roster changes come after an underwhelming season in which OG haven't won much. The teams struggled to perform in top tournaments and failed to make a single playoff stage across all Big Events.

With the addition of Nexius, OG now only need to sign an in-game leader to nexa's spot; however, they're slowly running out of time. OG are set to debut their new roster in the Copenhagen Major qualifiers, scheduled for January 8, 2024.
