What an adventure it has been !
After last year’s victory at The International 2019, we decided to get started on a project that we were super excited about: the creation of OG Seed.
We wanted to mentor another Dota team, share the knowledge that we have accumulated throughout all these years of competition, and help them build a solid foundation by providing them with the necessary tools to help them improve.
Because of unforeseen situations (the devastating Covid-19 pandemic), The International 10 was postponed, and the competitive calendar for the rest of the year became unclear. We always knew the two rosters would not be able to compete in TI10 under OG, but as the new calendar started shaping into regional tournaments, we saw that having two rosters competing in the same tournament created a potential conflict of interest. We worked with other teams and Tournament Organizers to try to find a solution, but despite our efforts, we realized that it was still probably a little too soon to try to properly implement multi-team ownership.
When we learned that OG Seed would not be able to compete in the same tournaments as OG, we sat down with them and mutually decided that we would give OG Seed a 30-days notice before releasing them (1st July 2020), and use this month to help them find a great new home.
All of us at OG would like to thank them for all their great work, commitment and friendship. We are extremely proud to see how they’ve evolved and how much progress they’ve made.
We at OG strongly invite other organizations to approach this amazing group and to direct any questions to their manager: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you so much for representing the values of our organization, for making us proud and for the great memories we built together.
You guys will be missed !
