From 1 to 5 : ana / TOPSON / Ceb / JerAx / N0tail. Back to business for TI qualifiers 👍— 7ckngMad (@7ckngMadDOTA) 3. Juni 2018
Earlier this morning Sebastien 'Ceb' Debs announced the new lineup, which will start for OG in the TI qualifiers. The former coach will remain as an active player, but switch to the offlane to make room for the return of a former player.
Ana's comeback in OG
OG now welcomes two new players to their squad: Topias 'Topson' Taavitsainen and Anathan 'ana' Pham.
Post-TI7, OG decided to let Ana go in order to bring in Resolut1on, a decision which did not work out as planned, and Resolut1on eventually left the team in March this year. During his time with OG, Ana was part of the double Major winning roster that won the The Boston Major and The Kiev Major.
The second new player on the roster is Topias 'Topson' Taavitsainen, unproven on the international stage, but who already showed some skill in our own joinDOTA League Season 12 as the hard carry of 5 Anchors No Captain. The Finnish squad finished in third place in the European division.
Only JerAx keeps his position
In a bit of a surprise twist Ana will switch to playing the hard carry position and Topson will be taking up the mid lane. The third core position will be played by 7Mad, which means N0tail will return to playing support. N0tail was best known for playing support back during his time in Fnatic, and also played support for both Team Secret and Cloud9.
1. Anathan 'ana' Pham
2. Topias 'Topson' Taavitsainen
3. Sebastien 'Ceb' Debs
4. Jesse 'JerAx' Vainikka
5. Johan 'BigDaddyN0tail' Sundstein
Do you think OG can qualify for TI?
