Earlier yesterday, OG revealed a cryptic video which showed OG’s coach Titouan "Sockshka" Merloz and Captain Johan "N0tail" Sundstein in their bootcamp.
The video invoked multiple discussions within the Dota 2 community, with some even suggesting that this was a teaser for OG’s upcoming CS:GO team. However, that was all clarified when the organization revealed its secondary Dota 2 team.
This video clearly states that OG will not be attending the DreamLeague Season 13: Leipzig Major and explains the reasons leading up to this decision. The video also reveals OG’s second squad named ‘OG Seed’ which consists of several talented players.
The new roster will feature:
Omar “Madara” Dabachach
Rasmus “Chessie” Blomdin
Andreas “Xibbe” Ragnemalm
Zakari “ZFreek” Freedman
Petu “Peksu” Vaatainen
“This OG Seed journey comes with great expectations for us at OG. Being able to go back in time, alongside up and coming players, is simply amazing. I know this is going to be a win-win situation for everyone involved. We will share experience, maturity and knowledge, while they will feed us with their immense motivation, their drive and passion. We intend to give them the best we can offer and help them achieve their dreams just like we achieved ours. Hopefully, you’ll enjoy the ride as much as we will. Cheers OGs, love ya”
- Sébastien “Ceb” Debs
The OG organization has also confirmed that they will be supporting OG.Seed right up until the start of the third major in the Dota Pro Circuit 2019/2020 season. So it’ll be interesting to see how this team develops over the course of the next 3-4 months.
OG Seed debuts in open qualifiers at DreamLeague Leipzig Major for Europe on November 28th.
