Ready to fight. OG

The saga around Dota 2 team OG looks like it's coming to a close. In a span of one week, three members decided to leave the roster. Within that same period of time OG signed up three replacements. The recent news is that Yeik "MidOne" Nai Zheng and Martin "Saksa" Sazdov have signed up for the team.

Three Down But One Added

The story started in the middle of the Leipzig Major Playoffs. Back then, OG revealed that Jesse “JerAx” Vainikka was retiring from the competitive scene while Anatham “ana” Pham decided to take a break and isn't going to return until next season. You can read more about that here.

After that, it was Sébastien "Ceb" Debs who announced that he moving to inactive status to help OG behind the scenes. You can read about that here.

That left team captain Johan "N0tail" Sundstein and Topias "Topson" Taavitsainen remaining on the roster. While this series of news hit OG's fans hard, the latest reveal will drive their spirits up. Sumail “SumaiL” Hassan officially joined the team as the carry and position one. Read more about that here.

Support Position

With SumaiL now in the team, OG was left with open positions three and four. Turns out the team didn't need to look long as they even joked in a tweet that they were more than lucky to have "met this guy at the restaurant." It was none other than Saksa.

Saksa joined Ninjas in Pyjamas just after The International 2018. The team managed to get invited to TI9 with a fourth place finish at the Kuala Lumpur Major and a 5th-6th place finish during the MDL Disneyland Paris Major. Sadly, NiP was eliminated from TI9 after the Group Stage. After that, Saksa departed from the team. Saksa's signature heroes include Winter Wyvern, Tusk, and Elder Titan.

Offlane Position

The final member to join OG is MidOne for the Offlane position. MidOne started with Fnatic before making the move to Team Secret, where he stayed for more than three years. He had initially planned to take a break and move to the inactive roster. You can read more of that here.

By the end of 2019, MidOne formally left Team Secret.

OG said in a statement that with these additions they are happy "to have a chance to build something new and start a new grind as a squad." The team went on to say that they have always worked toward excellence and that "this roster is more than ready to give it their all."

What do you think? Is this roster good enough for that precious three-peat?
