It looks like Dota 2 is not the only title where OG seems to be dominating EG, as yesterday the Danish organization was able to mount a solid comeback in the dying moments of the final map to sweep the series away from EG, making its way to the Upper Bracket Final of BLAST Premier: Spring 2020 Regular Season.
OG is off to a great start as they defeat Evil Geniuses by a score of ‘2-1’ to advance further into the tournament. It seems like the change in decision to keep Aleksib as a full-time IGL has worked out well for them, as they fought tooth and nail to secure the series by a slight advantage.

The three-game series went down to the wire as both the teams won a map each with a ‘16-14’ scoreline to play a decider on Dust 2. Here OG mounted a solid comeback to take the game into overtime after facing a six-round deficit, where they were able to overwhelm EG to run away with a ‘19-17’ scoreline.
The trio of ISSAA, valde, and mantuu really came together to hit the opposition hard as both the senior members NBK- and Aleksib took the backseat, providing support to further boost their firepower.
OG after dominating EG in Dota 2 has now defeated them in CS:GO as well. Both the organizations are relatively new to the Counter-Strike scene, and though EG might have had a big lead on OG initially, the gap seems to be closing down as Aleksib and co keep improving with every tournament.
Let’s see how OG fairs against G2 Esports, who were able to take care of 100Thieves in a clean manner.
