Topson, Ceb, and No[o]ne-


Old G, the team with two-time TI winners Sébastien "Ceb" Debs and Topias "Topson" Taavitsainen, along with Roman "Resolut1on" Fomynok, Kartik "Kitrak" Rathi, and Volodymyr "No[o]ne-" Minenko recently got disqualified from the Summer Tour 2023 Closed Qualifiers.
The organizers, PGL, stated that the members of the team violated the rules of conduct after a default forfeit in the team’s tiebreaker match against PuckChamp.
According to the official Dota 2 roster registration website, Kitrak, Topson, and No[o]ne- have left the team with Ceb following suit recently, leaving only Resolution on the roster.

During the Berlin Major 2023, two members of Old G’s roster, Kartik "Kitrak" Rathi and Roman "Resolut1on" Fomynok, were playing as stand-ins for OG and BetBoom respectively. Old G had a crucial tiebreaker game against PuckChamp to keep its slot in Division II. It was unable to gather four original players for the game. As a result, Old G had to forfeit its match and the team lost its slot in the Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) Western Europe (WEU) 2023 Tour 2: Division II.

Sébastien "Ceb" Debs, one of Old G’s players, took to Twitter to criticize PGL and a member of the admin team for not offering any help in the situation. Shortly after the Berlin Major 2023 concluded, PGL announced on its Twitter account that Old G will be disqualified from the Summer Tour 2023 Closed Qualifiers due to violating the rules of conduct by threatening and harassing members of the admin team. The team will have to play through open qualifiers. Since then, players from the Old G roster have left the team according to the official Dota 2 roster registration website.

Only Resolution remains in Old G

After the team's disqualification, it seems that the Old G roster underwent significant changes. According to the official Dota 2 roster registration website, Kitrak, Topias "Topson" Taavitsainen, and Volodymyr "No[o]ne-" Minenko had already left the roster earlier, shortly after the conclusion of the Berlin Major 2023. More recently, Ceb also left the roster leaving only Resolution as the sole member of the team. These changes in the roster come right after PGL's announcement of the team being disqualified from the Summer Tour 2023 Closed Qualifiers, which may be one of the pivotal reasons for the players leaving the roster.

Old G's Roster

The disqualification of Old G from the Summer Tour 2023 Closed Qualifiers and the subsequent departure of several of its players has led many to question the future of the team. While no official announcements have been made yet, fans will surely be keeping a close eye on where Kitrak, Topson, No[o]ne-, Ceb, and potentially even Resolution, end up for the next season of competitive Dota 2. However, the one thing that is for certain is that the departure of so many key players is sure to have a significant impact on the Dota 2 scene, and only time will tell how Old G and its former players fare in the upcoming tournaments.
