X1aOyU: Midone went to OG

X1aOyU: I didn't expect it

X1aOyU: ..

-----: Nice

X1aOyU: He asked me to leave the team and then screwed me over.

X1aOyU player is also a Malaysian Dota 2 player and currently plays for Chinese team You Know Who.

MidOne’s future with OG is still not too clear. Some Dota 2 fans have speculated that the Malaysian will replace Topson or ana in the main roster of the club, while other fans have hypothesized that he might join OG Seed.

In any case, we will need to wait for an official announcement from either OG or MidOne before we arrive at any conclusions.
