OG Dota 2 and CS:GO revamped

OG has surprised the world with its recent announcements this week. The organization embarks on a new adventure with its Counter-Strike: Global Offensive team and its new active Dota 2 roster. Two players from the original Dota 2 roster leave the team, while one member will sit out of action until next season. To fill in that gap, the company already secured three members to participate in their Dota 2 front. Additionally, OG recruited a new coach for their CS:GO team and a new content creator to keep OG fans entertained.

An OG Era Ends

Last week, OG revealed to the world that Anathan “Ana” Pham will be taking an extended break, participating again next season. This meant their carry god wouldn’t be making an appearance at The International 10 this time around. As saddening as it is, that wasn’t the only big news revealed. Jesse “JerAx” Vainikka and Sébastien “Ceb” Debs depart from the team. JerAx is retiring from professional Dota 2, while Ceb will be leading from the backseat. Both now-former members will be supporting from the backlines, meaning they won’t be completely gone. Full details were later released and future plans for its teams during its Q&A night called OG Night.

A New Path

OG Night was an evening of celebration. Although to fans it was a dreadful realization of the passing era, to OG it was a night of a new beginning. During the night, they announced their three permanent fill-ins for the season. Syed Sumail “SumaiL” Hassan, Martin “Saksa” Sazdov, and Yeik “MidOne” Nai Zheng join as the missing ingredients to a Dota 2 team. It’s uncertain whether Topias Miikka “Topson” Taavitsainen will give up his lane to the other two prominent mid carries in the professional scene. But either way, with the best professional players in the world by OG’s side, it could promise a third tournament win.

Besides Dota 2, OG spoke a lot more about the newly-introduced CS:GO team. It’s only been a few months since the team started their journey. But they already have a new coach, also revealed during the night. Former Optic Gaming coach, Casper “ruggah” Due joins the forces of OG’s CS:GO team.

Lastly, OG announced a new content creator as an entertainer for gamers around the world. Janne “Gorgc” Stefanovski will join the brand’s content creators, providing only the best Dota 2 entertainment to Twitch viewers.

OG’s original era of Dota 2 greatness is over. And with its end, comes a new age wherein two fronts of professional gaming are present. They’ll work with its backline, supporting individuals to bring success to its long line of achievements.

The idea that’s set in stone is to dominate the CS:GO scene with a newly-introduced team. But the future is unpredictable. They may bring home its third TI Aegis of Immortals trophy with the help of the new members. But only time can tell if this season will be as good as the last one. OG CS:GO will participate at ICE Challenge 2020. While OG Dota 2 will try to secure a spot by going through the ESL One Los Angeles Qualifier. Both teams start their new journeys next week.
