OG losing to an unproven Virtus.pro roster likely comes as a surprise to many, but fans of the two-time TI championships shouldn’t be fretting over this loss. Now they have slot to prove than before.
OG was forced to compete with a number of different substitutes due to travel restrictions, with Yeik “MidOne” Nai Zheng and Topias Miikka “Topson” Taavitsainen being replaced by 33 and Sebastian “Ceb” Debs:
- Neta “33” Shapira
- Syed “SumaiL” Hassan
- Sébastien “Ceb” Debs
- Martin “Saksa” Sazdov
- Johan “N0tail” Sundstein
Though one might dismiss Ceb’s addition due to his long tenure with the team, there was still a fair bit of role swapping done by the team. Once OG is completely reunited and operating at full strength, there are likely few teams that will be able to compete with them.
Will that happen anytime soon? That’s unknown, as MidOne is currently at home in Malaysia and Topson’s status is something of a mystery.
Either way, OG is set to compete once again in the WePlay! Pushka League. They will likely continue to use this current roster, starting with their showdown against Alliance on April 28.
Let’s wait until then, they might get their revenge on Virtus.pro.
