ORDER have officially announced that Jireh “J1rah” Youakim has officially signed to their Counter-Strike: Global Offensive roster as their IGL after a five game stint with the team online.

News of this follows the departure of Chris ‘Emagine’ Rowlands, who recently retired from competitive play - thus leaving the IGL role vacant on the team.

J1rah moves to ORDER after a rather successful 2019 on both Breakaway Esports (now Black Sheep) and Avant Gaming - where under Avant Gaming he was able to lead the squad to the Starladder Major Asia Minor.

However, J1rah has been inactive competitively since January 14th due to Avant Gaming moving their roster around and placing him on the bench. 

As mentioned above, J1rah has been competing with ORDER’s Counter-Strike: Global Offensive roster as of recent - winning five of six matches in both the ESL ANZ Champs and ESEA S33 MDL.

Naithan Briffa, GM of Operations for ORDER, said in a statement to us “I am super excited to have announced J1rah. He has obviously been playing for us for a little bit now, but I think he is a great fit with the team personality wise.”

“He is a young guy with plenty of talent, and I think the experience on our roster can benefit him, which will benefit the team in turn,” concluded Naithan. 

In a tweet posted last night, J1rah stated “I’m absolutely pumped to start playing again, and with such a great group of players as well!”

J1rah will feature with the lineup for the first time ‘officially’ against Team Skyfire this Saturday in the Asia Minor Oceanic Closed Qualifier (ESL One: Rio).
