The Dota Pro Circuit scene has been buzzing with excitement as OG has pulled off a major roster coup following a disappointing 2023 season. The team, which had suffered a series of disappointing results, has turned to a true legend of the game, Ivan "MinD_Control" Ivanov, as their savior in the offlane position.

MinD_Control, a decorated champion with The International 2017 (TI7) title under his belt, makes a move to OG after a successful stint with Nigma Galaxy, a team he had called home since 2019. The acquisition of this versatile and highly skilled player has ignited hopes of a resurgence within the OG camp as it heads into DreamLeague Season 21.

The two-time The International winning team has recently taken on Twitter to announce that they “found a random guy that’s pretty good at offlane”

Renowned for his adaptability and proficiency with a wide array of heroes, MinD_Control is more than just a star offlaner; he's a strategic powerhouse. His prowess in the laning phase and his exceptional teamfighting skills have made him an invaluable asset to any squad. OG's faith in him is a testament to their ambition to reclaim their former glory.

The decision to bring in MinD_Control signals the end of Dmitry "DM" Dorokhin's tenure as OG's offlaner. DM's recent struggles and subpar performances had raised concerns among fans and pundits alike. With this move, OG is sending a clear message: they are committed to shoring up their offlane position and are dead set on challenging for top honors in upcoming tournaments.

The current lineup for the team is:

  • Artem "Yuragi" Golubiev

  • Bozhidar "bzm" Bogdanov

  • Ivan "MinD_ContRoL" Ivanov

  • Sébastien "Ceb" Debs

  • Kartik "Kitrak" Rathi

With MinD_Control in their ranks, OG transforms into a force to be reckoned with. This move has reignited hopes among fans and experts alike that OG can once again ascend to the pinnacle of the Dota 2 world.

The Dota 2 community eagerly anticipates witnessing MinD_Control's synergy with the likes of Ceb, a legendary OG player in his own right. This partnership could potentially unleash unprecedented strategic brilliance and gameplay finesse.
