Aleksi Antti Kaarlo Virolainen, known as “Aleksib,” is a 23-year-old Finnish CS:GO player who has been playing under OG Esports for over one year. Previously, he was playing for ENCE and Havu Gaming.

Yesterday, Aleksib spoke in a recent interview with and talked about their performance issues last year, failures in the tournaments, ISSAA’s internet problems, and many more.

In the conversation, Aleksib explained how the online era affected the team and showed that the most important difference happened with ISSAA because he had to play with around 90 pings, which of course affected his performance and brought him down a little bit as everybody played around 40 pings in the server.

Here is what Aleksib said:

“Anything ISSAA tries to do, when it comes to internet issues, when it comes to a visa if we’re thinking of having a bootcamp, is a problem, everything is super hard because of where he lives. Usually, in our games, everybody has between 30-50 ping, while ISSAA has 80 or 90.

It’s so hard because you don’t know how long this COVID period is going to be and I know for a fact that ISSAA is like a ‘glue’ on LAN, he brings a lot of hype and he shoots better. We think this online period has brought ISSAA down quite a bit, and that’s really unfortunate.

Today, the embassy said that ISSAA can’t travel to Lisbon, no matter what. Even if he had the visa right now, he couldn’t travel. So we have to think of something else, and that’s again having to take a step back, but we’ll have to figure something as a team.”
