Earlier this year, OG became the first back-to-back champions of The International tournament, bagging the biggest prize esports has ever seen at $15,603,133 (£12.1 million).
Following their historic win, OG have now announced their second Dota 2 team titled OG Seed, comprised of young players from Godsent, compLexity Gaming, and Pelaajat.com.
So who’s on the team? After recently leaving Ad Finem, Omar “Madara” Dabachach is on the Seed roster, alongside former Godsent players Rasmus “Chessie” Blomdin and Andreas “Xibbe” Ragnemalm.
Zakari “Zfreek” Freedman also joins the roster from compLexity Gaming, alongside Peetu-Elmeri “Peksu” Vaatainen from Pelaajat.com.

Interestingly, Johan “N0tail” Sundstein from OG’s original team will be acting as coach for Seed. N0tail is captain of OG’s original team and is widely regarded as one of the best Dota 2 players in the world. The announcement follows a trailer OG released teasing a new role for N0tail.
It’s important to note this won’t affect the main Dota 2 team, comprised of N0tail, Anathan “ana” Pham, Topias “Topson” Taavitsainen, Sebastien “Ceb” Debs and Jesse “JerAx” Vainikka, in any substantial way.
The main OG team however won’t be entering the second Major, with OG Seed taking their place. N0tail and the boys will be back for the third Major later in 2020.
