Ceb Starts Playing Supports in His Ranked Games
Two-time champion of The International, Sebastian "Ceb" Debs, has begun playing as a support in his recent ranked Dota 2 matches, according to Dota2ProTracker. It is currently unknown why Ceb, who is typically an offlaner, has made the switch in his ranked games. In the last 24 hours, he has played more than 15 matches as a support.
Ceb has previously played in a supporting capacity multiple times in his career and in that role, after coming out of retirement and standing in for Misha.
Is Ceb transitioning into a support player?
Over the last few days, Ceb has been busy playing in the soft support and hard support roles in his ranked games. The player has been picking heroes like IO, Marci, Pugna, Shadow Shaman, Phoenix and has had a 48.3% win rate over the last two weeks.
This certainly is an interesting development as the Dota 2 Pro Circuit 2023 (DPC 2023) season kicks off in the 2nd week of January. Since Ceb is not competing in the first tour of the DPC 2023, this could be the perfect time for the player to experiment and figure out his optimum position ahead of the second tour.
At the time of writing, Ceb is still listed as an Old G player, alongside his former OG teammates Johan "n0tail" Sundstein and Topias "Topson" Taavitsaynen. Arif "Mss" Anwar and Vladimir "No[o]ne" Minenko make up the remaining members of Old G.
Recently, Old G participated in the closed qualifiers of the first tour of DPC 2023 but failed to qualify for the Western European Dota 2 Pro Circuit: Division 2. The team will have to compete in the Open Qualifiers of Tour 2 to make another attempt at qualifying for Division 2.
