Another professional paper holder joins the crew 😎
After the DPC season ended, the team has worked extremely hard to make their new lineup work, and brought in some extra help.
Today, we are thrilled to finally share with you that for the past 3 months we have been working with Mikhail “Misha” Agatov and welcome him officially as our head coach for TI10.
Misha assumed the position of head coach after the second season of DPC ended, when the team agreed that they needed an extra breath of fresh air to bring back OG’s legacy where it belongs, on a TI stage.
His work has been more than crucial in our qualification, and we are extremely grateful to count him among our ranks. He has worked alongside our team for the entirety of our qualification bootcamp and has already joined the squad in Lisbon to get ready for the biggest event of the year – The International 10.
Titouan “Sockshka” Merloz remains of course part of the coaching staff and has been moved to assistant coach, he will continue working with OG.
“It’s a big honor for me to help my favorite team succeed. I’m super happy to be working with OG, can’t wait to see where this journey takes us.”
Mikhail “Misha” Agatov
“Welcome Misha! It has been great having you around since the close qualifiers. You deserve a lot of credit for the transformation the teams have gone through. We are very grateful for the last few months of work, but the most fun is still ahead of us! An honor to go to TI with you!”
Johan “N0tail” Sundstein
“We want to publically welcome Misha into the OG family! He started working with him after a rough season, and we immediately felt the change. He has poured his soul into this project since day 1, and he was a key part of us qualifying to TI10. He is young, he is confident, and we believe he is going to really help us be the best version of us for TI10.”
Sébastien “Ceb” Debs
“Even the best teams sometimes need something new, to help them overcome obstacles, to help them remember how good they can really be. Since we started working with Misha, we felt his energy, and contagious passion for the game, and it really inspired and helped the team. Misha – we are very happy to have you with us, and I cant wait to go to TI with you”
The team is currently getting ready for the biggest challenge of their careers, defending their titles as back to back champions on the stage of Bucharest, Romania starting on October 7th.
More than ever, we will need your support in this new step of our journey.
We will be gathering our papers, and as always giving our best to give you the best show possible in this yearly celebration of the game that we all love.
