On Monday, November 16, OG unveiled its new Dota 2 roster for the 2024 season. The new-look lineup will welcome a few returning faces, as well as two new signings Adrián "Wisper" Dobles and Matthew "Ari" Walker.
After a disappointing run through the 2023 Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) season, OG have decided to freshen up its Dota 2 roster for next year by bringing in two new players, who’ll link up with Artem "Yuragi" Golubiev, Bozhidar "bzm" Bogdanov, and Sébastien "Ceb" Debs as three carryovers from the 2023 season.
"Today, we are incredibly proud and excited to unveil a new chapter of our organisation by announcing the new Dota 2 roster for the 2024 season – a lineup crafted to keep the world at the edge of their seats through the iconic gameplay and memorable moments we all love and miss."
"After a year of introspection and realignment, we’ve emerged with a renewed competitive vision and strategy. To reignite the OG Magic, we have approached a fusion of raw talent and seasoned leadership, embodying the very essence of the OG spirit—a blend of family, passion, legacy, and our relentless pursuit of excellence."
Perhaps the biggest surprise is learning that Ceb will continue competing. The 31-year-old returned to professional Dota 2 in July 2023 after a two-year break and is set to continue his career as OG’s captain. Joining the seasoned veteran are young talents, namely 20-year-old Ari, who started his esports career in May 2022, 22-year-old Yuragi, who made his pro debut in April 2020, and bzm who has just two years of competitive experience under his belt.
Besides Ceb, Wisper is the most experienced Dota 2 player on the OG roster, having started competing in June 2018 with Infamous Young. He has since played for Infamous, beastcoast, and Evil Geniuses, who he left at the start of the month after EG decided to disband its Dota 2 roster.
OG’s roster changes follow a shaky run through the 2023 season, in which the team haven’t won a single tournament. They placed fourth in DPC WEI 2023 Tour 2: Division I and fifth in the other two tours before ending the year with another fourth-place finish at DreamLeague Season 21, which marked their best tournament placement of the year.
