Ceb and Topson will play against each other in an elimination match during DreamLeague Season 21.
The Dota 2 scene will witness a showdown unlike any other tomorrow. Former teammates, Sébastien "Ceb" Debs and Topias "Topson" Taavitsainen, who together won a back-to-back TI, are about to play against each other in DreamLeague Season 21. This will be their first time playing against each other competitively.
In this final premier tournament before TI12, fate brings the two together. Topson, who has just joined Tundra Esports as a stand-in, will meet Ceb in OG. The matchup will be an intense elimination series in the Lower Bracket of DreamLeague Season 21. You can find the full schedule and results on our site.
A brief recap - where was Ceb and Topson?
Since the duo made history by winning a back-to-back TI title, their names have always been associated together. Ceb and Topson last played with OG at TI10 in which they finished in the top 8. They fell out of the tournament after a loss against the eventual champions, Team Spirit.

The OG roster then disbanded and a lineup of up-and-rising players filled in their shoes. Ceb went to the path of not-so-retirement but still monitors the new OG lineup alongside N0tail. On the other hand, Topson took a long break and focused on his family while streaming on the side.
During his retirement phase, Ceb constantly had stand-in missions for OG. Topson who had returned to the pro scene ventured to T1 as a stand-in during TI11 Southeast Asia Qualifiers, in which he fell short and missed the grand event.
For a while, these two did not have official teams - not until the 2023 season. The two had an "experimental" stage with Old G where the team competed in Division II and continuously fell inches short of a Div I promotion. After Old G disbanded, both Ceb and Topson went separate ways.
Ceb recently officially joined OG once again for the TI12 Western Europe Qualifiers. Tundra Esports also shook the community after grabbing Topson to replace Saksa, who is currently on the inactive bench due to health issues.
