Despite a disappointing start in the DPC Tour, where they suffered several losses, OG displayed its resilience and fighting spirit, just as they did in Tour 2, where they made an extraordinary comeback to qualify for the Berlin Major 2023. Unfortunately, their hopes for a similar resurgence were dashed when Quest Esports secured the final spot for the Bali Major 2023 with a 2-0 victory over Team Liquid. However, OG managed to retain its Division I slot by securing a convincing victory against D1 Hustlers in a must-win series.
