Default Remove bloatware and ota update

I've just rooted my device (bootloader still locked) and now I'm wondering if I remove apps I don't use, will an ota update still work? I remember I had problems in the past with it (Asus transformer). After I removed some standard apps, the update function didn't work anymore. I know I can freeze apps with titanium backup but I prefer to remove them.
