The boys are back! Two-time TI champions Sébastien "Ceb" Debs and Johan "N0tail" Sundstein will be competing with OG at the ESL One Stockholm Major 2022, since the team’s position 5 player Mikhail "Misha" Agatov and coach Evgenii "Chuvash" Makarov have failed to obtain their visas for the tournament. As a result, Ceb will return to the lineup as the team’s position 5 player while N0tail will be stepping into the coach’s role.

Ceb and N0tail will stand-in for OG as Position 5 Support and Coach Respectively

Rumors about OG not being at full strength at the ESL One Stockholm Major 2022 have been making the rounds on social media. The European organization confirmed that these were indeed true, via a statement posted on its official social media handles.

“Unfortunately, captain Misha and coach Chuvash’s visas have both been denied. They will therefore not take part in the Stockholm Major,” read OG’s statement. It then detailed that Ceb and N0tail will be joining hands with the young roster, for the first time.

After N0tail and Ceb’s addition to OG’s lineup, the roster that will be representing the organization at the Stockholm Major will be:

  • Artem "Yuragi" Golubiev

  • Bozhidar "bzm" Bogdanov

  • Ammar "ATF" Al-Assaf

  • Tommy "Taiga" Le

  • Sébastien "Ceb" Debs

  • Johan "N0tail" Sundstein (Coach)

As a result of these roster changes, OG will incur a 40% penalty on Dota Pro Circuit points that it earns from this tournament.

This is not the first time that Misha has had to skip out on a LAN tournament. Earlier this year, he did not compete at the Gamers Galaxy: Invitational Series Dubai 2022. In that tournament, coach Chuvash stepped in and competed in his place. But now that both of them have been unable to secure visas, the old-guard of OG have been forced to step in.

Will N0tail and Ceb’s work their magic in LAN tournaments once again? We will find out when the ESL One Stockholm Major 2022 kicks off on May 12th, featuring 14 teams competing for the lion’s share of the $500K USD prize pool and perhaps more importantly 3,530 DPC points.
