Today, we are thrilled to introduce you to: OG Seed
We say it often, but every time we look back at our achievements in DotA 2, we can only feel grateful for the amazing game, mind-blowing community and flourishing scene that is being built and developed by each one of its actors.
Valve, fans, tournaments, organizations, players, talents, we all contribute to the ecosystem, and each initiative becomes one more step towards making it more competitive, more popular, more sustainable, durable, healthy etc.
Today, we’re proud to announce OG Seed and we hope that it can become an efficient contribution.
We feel like we have faced most of the difficulties DotA can throw at an aspiring top player or team.
This long journey blessed us with an immense experience, as well as methods that can help overpass these challenges.
Our idea is simple: on top of our original roster, we want to create a team of players we strongly believe in but that haven’t yet reached the achievements they feel they can reach. We will help them pursue their dreams. All the way until the 3rd major of the DPC season, the back-to-back champions will be directing their talent, efforts and energy towards OG Seed.
We plan to share lots of insights and backstage access with the community, so that all aspiring pro-players out there can benefit and follow this exciting journey to the top.
We perfectly know the rules of the DPC system, and everything is thoroughly thought through.
OG Seed’s first showing will be tomorrow Thursday 28th in the European Open Qualifiers. We already had some time with them and are very confident in their potential. In fact, we’re overly excited to discover what they can do. We do not look at wins, losses or results in general, we only seek for improvement.
No performance objectives, our only requirements for the players are:
“This OG Seed journey comes with great expectations for us at OG. Being able to go back in time, alongside up and coming players, is simply amazing. I know this is going to be a win-win situation for everyone involved. We will share experience, maturity and knowledge, while they will feed us with their immense motivation, their drive and passion. We intend to give them the best we can offer and help them achieve their dreams just like we achieved ours. Hopefully you’ll enjoy the ride as much as we will. Cheers OGs, love ya” – Ceb
