OG’s TI10 lineup is technically a TI-winning roster now

OG are the Midas of Dota 2.

All OG players agreed they would push for a second The International title after their first win in 2018. But the original roster had different opinions on a third run. While JerAx and ana decided to retire and take a break from competitive Dota 2, Topson, n0tail, and Ceb wanted a three-peat.

With two TI titles under their belt, OG were in the position to build another All-Star roster, featuring TI5 winner SumaiL and TI6 runner-up Saksa. When the team was first announced, the Dota community labeled the team as Four TI winners and Saksa.

While the former OG roster is no more, Saksa continued the hustle and finally lifted the Aegis of Champions at TI11 with Tundra Esports. In addition to taking home a check for over $1 million, Saksas rise to the top also meant that OGs TI10 lineup was finally made up of all TI winners.

Aside from winning two back-to-back TIs, OG also turned out to have a touch of gold, as it only took a year for Saksa to claim Aegis for himself after his stint with OG at TI10.

As the legendary OG roster stepped down from the scene in 2022, the organization opened its doors to newcomers who performed exceptionally well in their first year. A major win and a seventh place at TI in their debut season meant the youngsters exceeded expectations and can only continue to improve with the valuable lessons they learned at TI11.

It’s unclear how the Tundra and OG rosters will shape up in the upcoming DPC season after the post-TI roster shuffle extravaganza, but theyre likely to remain as two of the most formidable competitors in the region regardless of how they choose to proceed.
