Ceb Wins 20 Games in a Row With Io in Dota 2 Ranked Games
Two time The International (TI) champion Sébastien "Ceb" Debs has always been an avid fan of Io, prioritizing the hero immensely in both his professional and ranked matches. From etching OG into the history books with the Io carry for Anathan "ana" Pham during TI9 to going so far as to develop his offlane version of the hero last year, Ceb and Io have also formed an enduring bond. The player has been playing support Io a lot in ranked games lately and has taken his skill to the next level, managing to be an impossible opponent in the last week. Ceb has played 20 Io games over the last two weeks and has won all of them.

There is no way to keep Ceb out of discussions since he always finds a way to get involved in them in one way or another, and this time, he sparked a buzz by achieving a feat that is almost impossible to achieve for a top-tier Dota 2 player.
A total of 79 games have been played in the last eight days according to Dota 2 Pro Tracker, with 16 coming on Io with a 100% win rate.
His streak of winning on the hero had already been going well before the last eight days, and once he managed to win a record of 20 consecutive games on the hero, he tagged his former teammate ana, another aficionado of Io and the man behind the incredible plays at TI9, on Twitter, stating that the streak was dedicated to him.
Ceb has been playing a lot of ranked games recently, and it is likely that the streak will end soon. Despite the fact that he is very knowledgeable of the hero's mechanics, it is nevertheless fascinating to witness him achieve such a string of victories in the supporting role. All of the carry players he has been backing have to be having a great time when they team with him.
Ceb was last seen participating in a stack dubbed Old G alongside some of his former OG teammates in a professional competition. The team, to the surprise of many, failed to go past the closed qualifiers of the Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) 2023 Tour 3: Division II. During the qualifiers, the player competed in his typical offlane role, but in the recent ranked games, he has mostly focused on playing as support.
While Ceb is currently deemed retired, it is difficult to keep him away from competitive Dota 2, therefore it remains to be seen if he will take another shot with Old G in the next DPC 2023 Tour.
