Ceb Steps In as OG's Stand-In for DreamLeague Season 20
OG has announced a change in its lineup for DreamLeague Season 20, as Sébastien "Ceb" Debs steps in as a stand-in player. This alteration comes as the team seeks to maintain its competitive edge following the departure of its previous assistant coach, Evgenii "Chu" Makarov, who will now resume his role as an assistant coach. With Ceb's temporary inclusion and the return of Chu to the coaching staff, OG aims to showcase its adaptability in the upcoming tournament.
The Return Ceb to OG
OG has recently announced the return of Ceb to its roster for DreamLeague Season 20. This roster change comes after the departure of its coach Chu, following a disappointing performance in the Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) Tour 3, where the team failed to qualify for the Bali Major 2023.
With Dreamleague Season 20 right on the horizon, OG’s new changes come as a surprise with barely any time left before the Major. However, considering that Ceb has already played with the team in the past, the team’s chemistry may improve with his presence.
It's important to note that Ceb's return is likely just temporary, as he fills the stand-in role for DreamLeague Season 20. OG might need to find a suitable permanent replacement for the player before The International 12.
The full roster for DreamLeague Season 20:
Artem "Yuragi" Golubiev (Carry)
Bozhidar "BZM" Bogdanov (Mid)
Dmitry "DM" Dorokhin (Offlane)
Sébastien "Ceb" Debs (Stand-In Support)
Tommy "Taiga" Le (Support)
The Stand-In Tournament: Tundra’s Stand-ins
Dreamleague Season 20 seems to be filled with stand-ins, as Tundra Esports has also announced the inclusion of two stand-in players for the tournament. Stanislav "Malr1ne" Potorak will be stepping in to replace Leon "Nine" Kirilin, while Aleksandr "Immersion" Khmelevskoi will take the place of Wu "Sneyking" Jingjun in the lineup.

As OG gears up for DreamLeague Season 20, the return of Ceb brings a sense of familiarity and confidence to the team. His experience and leadership qualities are expected to contribute significantly to OG's performance, as they strive to regain their competitive edge and make a strong statement in the tournament. Similarly, Tundra Esports will aim to perform well even with stand-ins to keep up the momentum after a strong 1st-place finish in the DPC Western Europe (WEU) 2023 Tour 3: Division I. Shopify Rebellion also has a stand-in the tournament, where Amer "Miracle-" Al-Barkawi will replace Abed "Abed" Yusop.
