OG Moves Yuragi to Inactive Roster Amidst Contradictory Claims by Ceb

21. February 2024 by Never

In a surprising twist of events, OG has made the decision to move their carry player, Artem “Yuragi” Golubiev, to their inactive roster ahead of the DreamLeague Season 22 tournament.

This move comes as a contradiction to Sébastien “Ceb” Debs’s previous assertions of OG prioritizing stability and refraining from making any roster changes in 2024. Yuragi’s transfer to the inactive roster follows OG’s disappointing performance at the BetBoom Dacha 2024 Dubai event, where they ended up in last place.

Speculations Arise in the Dota 2 Community

This roster change has sparked speculations within the Dota 2 community, with rumors circulating about the potential replacement for Yuragi. One prevalent rumor suggests that Enzo “Timado” Gianoli, formerly of Tundra Esports, may step in as OG’s new carry player.

Yuragi’s Transition to Inactive Roster

On February 20th, OG made the announcement via X (formerly Twitter), stating, “Today, Yuragi has officially been moved to our inactive roster. He has been an integral part of our success in OG 2.0, showcasing exceptional skill, dedication, and passion. Two years and two trophies later, we’re so grateful for our journey. Thank you for everything @Yuragii1!”

Contradictory Claims by Ceb

However, in a previous interview with Rosesa Gaming during the ESL One Kuala Lumpur 2023, Ceb expressed that OG would remain unchanged for 2024, emphasizing their commitment to stability. Ceb stated, “No changes on the OG side for sure. We are all for stability… What I can say is that from OG’s side, we always aim to have little to no changes. Always!”

Speculations on Yuragi’s Replacement

Speculations regarding his replacement have been rampant. Timado, who previously played for Tundra Esports, is among the top contenders speculated to join OG as their new carry. Additionally, Nuengnara “23” Teeramahanon and Héctor “K1” Rodríguez have also been mentioned as potential candidates for the role. However, both 23 and K1 are currently affiliated with other Dota 2 organizations, Aurora and Heroic, respectively.

Anticipating OG’s New Carry Announcement

With DreamLeague Season 22 looming just around the corner, the Dota 2 community eagerly awaits OG’s announcement regarding their new carry player. It remains to be seen who OG will select to fill the void left by Yuragi’s departure.
