Introduction And History
OG is an e-sports team originating from Europe. They do not have a specific HQ or do they list themselves as they are from a particular place/country, that is why they specifically label themselves as coming from Europe, even though not every member is a European citizen nor does every member live in Europe.
An older team, known as (monkey) Business broke up and OG was founded by the previous teams ex members. The previous eSports team (monkey) Business had its fair share of successful tournaments and event participation, but in its final days it started deteriorating in success and the ex members MoonMeander, Miracle- and Cr1t decided they will start a new team known as „OG“ in hopes to penetrate the market and gain a competitive edge, which is exactly what they have accomplished on doing.
After all of that occurred it was decided that OG is being assembled, and the rest is pretty much history.
OG is one of the best, if not one of the leading e-sports team for Dota2 in the gaming industry. They primarily and professionally play Dota2 in its entirety, years on end. They have participated in many events ,tournaments, exops and cons, pretty much over the whole world. With a successful roster, team vision and mutual effectiveness they have started a very rapidly growing and successful story that surely will not end in the days, weeks, months and years; if not decades to come.
Ownership And Other Details
OG was a team made up of ex team members of a previous team – (monkey) Business. OG started to function thereafter bringing even more success than (monkey) Business.
Original founders and co-founders are mentioned to be MoonMeander, Miracle- and Cr1t, which later on unfortunately left the team, but that did not stop the team on winning their Boston Major in December of the year 2016, which was a tremendous victory and which represents a new era for OG and with the time for a more adjusted and updated roster can finally come to its beginnings.
Individual Member Net Worth
As everyone in the world of gaming already knows, OG’s biggest tournament and financial success came in 2015, when they have finished first place on the Inaugural Dota 2 Major Championship, earning a staggering $ 1,000,000 in prize money.
In a very short amount of time, and without a fortune in starting capital they have managed to get their fair share of funds during the years. If you are searching for a success story, just enter „OG“ in your search browser and all will be revealed and you will see why these words are of wisdom and truth.
Notable OG Results And Achievements
The first most notable victory happened is the previously mentioned Inaugural Dota 2 Major Championship in which they were declared absolute winners.
The second most notable victory was on the ESL One Frankfurt 2016, a tournament that they have also won predominantly.
The third and most famous victory they had actually happened in April 2017 on the Kiev Major, an achievement that allowed them to have 4 Major victories under their belt, along with the Manila Major, that is.
Of course we cannot fail to mention the outstanding success on their Boston Major that happened in December of 2016 in which they won the entire tournament.
They are also known known for major victories against rival e-sports teams such as the Evil Geniuses, CDEC Gaming and Team Secret, OG has delivered excellence in the true form of success when it comes to online (e-sports) team vs. team playing experiences.
As mentioned above, their most recent victory happened in April of 2017 in Kiev and from that point onward we can only expect good, if not the best possible outcomes, results and scores from one of the most successful e-sports team in the world – OG.
The current OG roster is Tal Aizik known as „Fly“, Anathan Phan, known as „ana“, Gustav Magnusson, known as „s4“, Jesse Vainikka, known as „JerAx“ and Johan Sundstein, finally known as „N0tail“. It is very interesting that some of these individuals are not even from/or living in Europe, but that they list Europe as their country of origin.
Known as one of the most famous, hyped and notorious gaming rosters, specifically Dota 2 gaming rosters, this 5 piece Dota machine delivers excellence, perfection and an absolute game changer to the next generation of online gaming.
Founding members MoonMeander, Miracle and Cr1t unfortunately left OG, but that did not represent the end as everyone expected. It actually represented a victory, as it did not stop them to win one of their four proclaimed Majors, specifically – the Boston Major.
As members go, it is a very important thing to mention that OG, in its team, has the only individual in the world to have a Dota2 matchmaking of over 9000, which makes them a record breaker/holder in a way. It surely helps the team gain competitive advantage in efforts to penetrate the market as effectively as can be done, a wide specter of activities in which OG is actually the best.
The Ups And Downs Of OG
As with every successful story, both good and bad times happened for OG, which is a perfectly normal thing, given that OG is a relatively „new“ name in the gaming industry. Even though they had their fair share of major and minor victories such as the Kiev and Manila Major, Inaugural Dota 2 Major Championship and the ESL One Frankfurt 2016, they also had some drawbacks and slumps, like every rapidly growing and successful e-sports team in the world.
They have unfortunately finished 7th on the Shanghai Major in March of 2016, and have more unsuccessful competitions in the past. One notable example of it is when they were defeated in all three games in a best of five series by Invictus Gaming. They have also suffered some lineup changes in their roster for a given tournament, but that actually did not stop them from winning the Boston Major in the year 2016.
Given into account that this organization is relatively new and is currently offering ground-breaking experience, we can definitely conclude by saying that every Dota 2 fan in the world is beyond stoked in seeing what the future holds next for OG. It is imperative that every Dota 2 fan carefully monitors their activities in tournaments, cons, expos, minor and major leagues and so on. It is, without a doubt that the future represents a sunny, warm and prosperous place for this e-sports team – for the days, weeks, months, years and even maybe decades to come.
