Ceb has started playing in the position 5 role in recent pubs, a change from his usual offlane role.

Two Time TI champion Sébastien "Ceb" Debs may stand-in for OG in the upcoming ESL One Stockholm 2022 Major, according to Russian-language commentator Alexey "STORM" Tumanov. The former OG-offlaner might be competing in the major since the team’s captain and position 5 player, Mikhail "Misha" Agatov, is having problems with obtaining a visa to compete at Stockholm. Neither the OG organization nor Ceb has released an official statement on the ongoing situation.

Is Ceb going to return to pro-Dota 2 at the Stockholm Major 2022?

Ceb’s last competitive match was at TI10, following which the player said that he was retiring from competitive Dota 2. However, he has continued to play numerous pubs and is currently Ranked 119 in the European region at the time of writing.

The player who usually plays in the offlane, has suddenly switched to playing in the position 5 role in recent days, adding credence to STORM's statements.

Ceb's recent games have all been as a support

In April, OG CEO JMR Luna Tweeted that obtaining visas for all OG players except for Tommy "Taiga" Le was "super tricky."

However, until there is an official announcement from the OG management or the players, fans should take this with a grain of salt.


Despite the majority of the Eastern European players from Team Spirit and BetBoom Team managing to obtain visas for the event, a few players from the region are having logistical issues.

Eastern European team Mind Games will be playing with two stand-ins as a result of these visa issues. The team’s support players’ Danil "Bignum" Shekhovtsov and Semion "CemaTheSlayer" Krivulya will miss out on the major. As a result Andrey "Dukalis" Kuropatkin and Genadiy "Astral" Motuz from PuckChamp will be standing-in at this event, as a result.

Earlier Dota 2 talent Mira "Ephey" Riad also announced that she was unable to attend the major due to visa complications.
