After some time on the bench, a former HellRaiser rises out of the ashes in the form of ISSAA.
ISSAA confirmed for OG - From raising Hell to an Original G

Issa "ISSAA" Murad was relatively unknown when he first emerged onto the CS:GO scene but enters OG as a more experienced and well-rounded player than he was back in 2017.

First trialled then signed by CIS organisation HellRaisers in 2017, ISSAA and Özgür "woxic" Eker became crucial in the team's success under Kirill "ANGE1" Karasiow.

One of ISSAA's best performances came at DreamHack Open Tours 2018 after HellRaisers were called on to replace Heroic at the French event. Finishing with a 1.42 rating despite the second-place finish netted him the first MVP medal of his career.

HellRaisers was a good fit over the last two years and under them ISSAA able to not only be the first Middle Eastern CS:GO player at a Major but the first to also reach Legends status at the FACEIT Major 2018 in London.

A disappointing StarLadder Berlin Major earlier this year, which saw a controversial HellRaisers lineup attend due to the roster lock rules being bent, saw all players benched by the organisation.

After three months on the bench, another promising international project has come ISSAA's way, this time in the form of OG on their initial venture into CS:GO.

Like his former HR teammate Bence "DeadFox" Böröcz , ISSAA left his domestic scene for better opportunity on the international circuit.

In leading by example, ISSAA provides hope for the future not just in Jordan but in all of the smaller scenes around the world.
