The secondary DOTA team of OG, OG.Seed was announced to be disbanded after it became clear that in the current situation with the global COVID pandemic, there would not be enough opportunities for both teams under the same team. This is from the team’s official announcement:
“Because of unforeseen situations (the devastating Covid-19 pandemic), The International 10 was postponed, and the competitive calendar for the rest of the year became unclear. We always knew the two rosters would not be able to compete in TI10 under OG, but as the new calendar started shaping into regional tournaments, we saw that having two rosters competing in the same tournament created a potential conflict of interest. We worked with other teams and Tournament Organizers to try to find a solution, but despite our efforts, we realized that it was still probably a little too soon to try to properly implement multi-team ownership.
When we learned that OG Seed would not be able to compete in the same tournaments as OG, we sat down with them and mutually decided that we would give OG Seed a 30-days notice before releasing them (1st July 2020), and use this month to help them find a great new home.”
We would like to thank all our OG.Seed players for their great work, commitment and friendship.
We are extremely proud to see how you’ve evolved and how much progress you’ve made.
