After a brief hiatus, the Dota 2 esports squad OG confirmed Ceb would return to the roster.
OG tweeted Ceb’s return to the active roster. The brief statement on July 25 announced that Ceb will be returning as the offline player for Dota 2 for the band. The group confirmed the return of Ceb to his suitable place for the DotaPit tournament that started on July 27. They also took time on Twitter to thank Sumail for filling the role in Ceb’s absence.
OG explained the situation on a blog post on its website. According to OG, Ceb left the active roster in January to reevaluate his life, career, and role on the team. He served as the team’s Head of Performance.
He evidently rediscovered his love for rivalry while serving in that capacity, and worked in an active role. Although doing well as being a mentor, he was clearly more motivated to be a competitor. He decided to come back to battle with his OG mates.
Why did Ceb return to his former club?
Ceb made his former Club, OG, a stunning return. In answer to his followers’ concerns, he posted a video describing why he wanted to play Dota 2.
The gamer said he was not satisfied with the other players. He claimed other gamers are planning to defeat OG. That’s why the squad welcomes him once again.
Ceb also clarified he ran out of motivation during the DPC season. That made him retire earlier. He added he was no longer motivated to play the Paris Major’s playoffs.
Fans’ glad’ over Ceb’s return
Fans replied positively to the Twitter message. Others looked thankful for getting the young man back on the roster. Some were sorry to see Sumail go and thought he didn’t have enough room for OG to really shine. No news has been released about where he will go or what his intentions are. Still, another team could pick up Ceb quite soon, considering his ability.
There is some doubt about how Ceb will pick up where he left off. Seven months is a long time for an esports player to rest from playing, and his talents are sure to need some polishing.
Who is Ceb?
Ceb, whose full name is Sébastien Debs, is known as the leader of Dota’s most strong squad, OG. He started his professional career at Dota 2 in 2011. The foreign game took the spotlight in the same year.
The OG leader first played the game with Team Shakira, who finished 4th place at Dreamhack Winner. The unexpected victory for his squad prompted the Western Wolves to pack up their roster. He’s become recognized as the guy with a “commanding voice” and he’s not afraid to talk up his mind and express his thoughts. His character trait revealed he’s the player of the leader kind.
Ceb played in 13 different teams between 2011 and 2015. However, his performance declined. He joined the former Alliance TI2 champion afterward. After struggling to qualify for the biggest tournament of the year, his career faced trouble.
Yet years later, OG took Ceb on the Shanghai major as their analyst and then hired him as their professional head coach. After winning, OG continued to get wins with Ceb leading them to other wins. In the TI8, OG had to face the defending champion, PSG LGD. OG defeated the most dominant in previous TI tournaments with the efficient leadership of Ceb, replacing PSG as Dota’s number one professional squad.
