“To say that we cannot keep our 3rd position slot away from spice would be an understatement. 🌶️ IT IS FINALLY TIME, today we officially welcome DM as our new offlaner.” OG wrote in its announcement post on Twitter, welcoming its newest addition to the Dota 2 roster.
OG’s roster for the 2022/2023 Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) season has been confirmed as follows:
Artem "Yuragi" Golubiev
Bozhidar "bzm" Bogdanov
Dmitry “DM” Dorokhin

Team captain Misha also gave his own opinion on DM’s addition to the roster, believing that DM would fit well into the team.
“DM is an amazing player and human being, he has a very precise approach to Dota and puts his mind into his gameplay every day, very excited to play with him! I believe that DM will fit well into our team and bring some cool and exciting ideas.”
During the off-season, as he looks to replace ATF as the player departs to Nigma Galaxy.
DM previously spent two years with Virtus.pro, as he helped the team to dominate the Eastern European (EEU) DPC league while also achieving a top six finish at The International 2021 (TI10) with VP. However, 2022 proved to be a bad year for Virtus.pro as it failed to qualify for TI11 on multiple occasions which led to DM being moved into VP’s inactive status before his move to OG was officially announced.
OG will start its season in the first division of the first regional league of the Western European (WEU) DPC 2022-23 following the announcement of its new roster along with coach Evgenii "Chuvash" Makarov.
