OG has announced Ceb’s retirement from competitive Dota 2 play.
OG’s two-time champion, former coach, and iconic offlaner Ceb has stepped away from the team’s active roster. This concludes (at least for now) Ceb’s decades-long career in Dota 2.
Talking about the reason for his decision, Ceb shares:
“The win-or-die mindset, which has driven the entirety of my career… I don’t have it in me anymore. I never commit to a team or to people unless I know I’m ready to give every drop of energy and every second of my time into it.”
In spite of his retirement, Ceb remains to be a part-owner of the organization. Currently, the team has not made it public what their roster for DPC 2021-2022 will be. Rumors suggest that teammate and also two-time TI champion N0taiL will also be retiring from competitive play. With Sumail and Saksa also leaving, this leaves only Topson and NotaiL remaining in the OG Dota 2 roster. However, OG has also been teasing a possible return of carry and seasonal pro player ana, something that is still not confirmed either by the player or the organization.
As for Jerax, the fifth two-time TI champion formerly from OG, rumors suggest that he’ll be joining NA team Evil Geniuses.
