Former PENTA Sports entry fragger Kevin "HS" Tarn has joined OpTic Gaming, according to an announcement on social media.

HS is the latest member of OpTic's European rebuild. Earlier this month, the NA org signed all-star EU players Adam "friberg" Friberg, Aleksi "allu" Jalli Emil "Magisk" Reif.

However the team has faced severe backlash with disqualifications from the ELEAGUE CS:GO Premier 2017 and DreamHack Masters Malmö due to the acquisitions not following either events rules around roster changes.

"They are players who will try to shape me, the young gun, in a way that they believe will fit the team," HS said of his new teammates in an interview with HLTV's Luís "MIRAA" Mira. "It will be really interesting because we all come from different types of teams and will probably have different ideas/input about how to play the game. The most important thing is that we all have one single goal — to win."
