OG will have a Dota 2 roster change going into DPC 2023 Tour 2
Who is going to be replaced in OG Dota 2 roster?
It seems like OG will go through a roster change earlier than expected. After failing to qualify for the Dota 2 Lima Major, the esports organization which had won two The International (TI) has to go back to the drawing board. The carry player of OG, Artem "Yuragi" Golubiev has recently teased a future change in the current Dota 2 roster of OG.
OG will make one change to its Dota 2 roster
In a recent interview with Escorenews, Yuragi confirmed that OG will be going through a reshuffle ahead of DPC 2023 Tour 2. He mentioned how OG will have one change where they are going to replace one player. Yuragi then left the room buzzing with his statement, assuring that the Dota 2 community will soon know everything.
Who is going to be replaced in OG?
As of now, there is no confirmation on who is going to say goodbye to the sunflower org. The community is left to speculate on who is going to be replaced in the current Dota 2 roster.
It is quite unlikely that OG offlaner Dmitry "DM" Dorokhin will be out of the team after only one DPC season with the team. In addition, Tommy "Taiga" Le who played position 4 in OG will most probably stay on the team. He mentioned in one of his streams that he will be taking on the drafting role going forward in the season.
There is quite a number in the community pointing towards Mikhail "Misha" Agatov, the captain and support player of OG. They are portraying Misha as the weakest link in the team despite having a successful DPC season in 2021-22. This notion is probably contributed by his lack of LAN attendance where he couldn't join the team for three main events last year. It doesn't help his case that OG won ESL One Stockholm 2022 and ESL One Malaysia 2022 without him.
Misha had previously taken the role of the coach in the OG TI 10 roster. He was then brought in as a player with a fresh squad built from scratch. It is quite possible that Misha will go back to his coaching position, leaving the hard support and captain role vacant.
Is Ceb coming back to OG?
Only a few days ago the co-owner of OG and former OG offlaner, Sébastien "Ceb" Debs, posted a vague tweet.
Ceb has repeatedly returned to competitive Dota 2 even though he announced his retirement in 2021. He played as a stand-in for OG in ESL One Stockholm 2022 and PGL Arlington Major 2022. His last stunt as a Dota 2 professional player was during the Open Qualifier of Western European (WEU) DPC where he played in Old G with N0tail, Topson, MSS, and Noone. It is to no one surprise if Ceb decides to come back to his old glory team.
Although, some have pointed out that Ceb has recently been playing in a private Dota 2 lobby with ATF and GH. This sparks a rumor of him returning to the Dota 2 competitive scene with Kuro "KuroKy" Takhasomi and the boys in Nigma Galaxy.
