The rumors stayed true. MidOne and Saksa are joining OG for DPC 2020.
The news was confirmed during OG Night – the organization tribute show that just ended hours ago. MidOne will take up the offlane position while Saksa will do his best to fill in JerAx shoes.
Martin “Saksa” Sazdov was one of the first players to hit 8000 MMR back in mid-2015. Saksa then joined team 4 Clover & Lepricon shortly after, the first in a long list of teams, including Digital Chaos and Ninja in Pyjamas. His biggest achievement is coming second with Digital Chaos at The International 2015, losing to Wings Gaming. N0tail cited the reasons for choosing Saksa were both due to his personalities – which is in line with what OG looks for in its players, and that his accounts occupy 3 of the top 4 support spots in EU.
Spending most of his professional years playing under Team Secret, Yeik “MidOne” Nai Zheng is also one of the first players – the first in SEA – to reach 8000 MMR. He then went on to become the first player to reach 10000 MMR in the mentioned server. Together with Team Secret, MidOne attained 4 Major championship, but unable to translate this success at The International, much like earlier iterations of OG. MidOne, like his name indicated, is a mid player. The reason he will be position 3 at OG is his aggressive playstyle, which according to both N0tail and MidOne himself, is more suited for an offlaner.
With that we wrapped up OG roster for this DPC season. The team got massive potential on paper but there is no guarantee that they will success. One thing for sure is that, as mentioned by Topson during the show: “I’m scared of playing with these guys, every mistake I make they’ll be flaming me”. The team’s first showing will be ESL One Los Angeles 2020 European Open Qualifiers starting on the 3rd of February.
Also announced is the addition of Janne “Gorgc” Stefanovski to the organization as a content creator. The beloved streamer chose to stick to streaming after multiple links with potential teams. Beside continue to stream under OG banner, Gorgc will participate in making extra bonus content, post-game interviews, and media content in general.
