Gorgc Thinks Old G Players Are “Arguably Not Tier I Players”
Old G has been making headlines lately due to its recent performances, including its recent debut in the Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) Western Europe (WEU) Tour 2: Division II. The team comprises some of the most experienced and successful players in the game, specifically two-time TI (The International) winners Sébastien "Ceb" Debs and Topias "Topson" Taavitsainen. The players have been the topic of much discussion in the Dota 2 community. In a recent livestream, Janne "Gorgc" Stefanovski stated his belief that the players from Old G cannot be considered as Tier 1 players.
Can Old G start performing to become a Tier 1 team?
Old G, the up-and-coming team with some familiar faces with two-time TI winners Topson and Ceb, has been performing well in the DPC and has just made it to the DPC WEU Tour 2: Division II. However, the team recently got eliminated from the Pinnacle Cup: Malta Vibes #1 after losing to ex-Hellraisers 2-0. In a recent livestream, Gorgc shared some interesting thoughts on Old G and its players. “They’re all tier 1 players? I mean arguably they are not right? Topson, No[o]ne, they’ve all been kind of out of it for a long time. Kitrak? Who? Ceb is busy making like two documentaries a fu*king month about how he’s retired and then he's still playing. I don't know dude, I feel like they’re definitely underdogs coming into this” Gorgc says.
Despite Gorgc's statement, Old G has proven to be one of the strong teams in the DPC WEU Tour 2: Division II, and is one of the favorites to finish in the top 2 of its group and secure a spot in Division I.
It remains to be seen whether Old G will be able to elevate its game to become a Tier 1 team in the future. With the team's experienced players and recent success, it definitely has the potential to achieve that status. However, it will require consistent performances and results against other top teams in the Dota 2 scene. Gorgc's comments about Old G's players not being Tier 1 may have caused some controversy in the community, but it does not diminish the team's recent success in qualifying for the DPC WEU Tour 2: Division II.
