This OG Dota 2 team first appeared on the eSports competitive scene back in 2015 when they started playing eSports together. Just a couple of days into their existence, they won the Frankfurt Major 2015 which was immediately seen as a sign of things to come.
However, OG ran into some bumps along the way and it wasn’t always peachy.

OG’s only major win during this season was the Frankfurt Major. They also came first in DreamLeague Season 4.
This season was more eventful, with OG securing wins in DreamLeague Season 5, The Manila Major, ESL One Frankfurt 2016, and the Boston Major 2016. unfortunately , the team didn’t achieve major success in The International 2016.
A topsy-turvy season with a couple of wins but overall, not as good as they expected. A win in the Kiev Major 2017 saw them become slight favorites for The International 2017, but it wasn’t meant to be. They finished lower than they wanted.
The 2018 season finally saw the OG Dota 2 team become a threatening one. Or did it? If we look at their performances, there’s not a lot to note. A qualifier win here and there but nothing too much. And then suddenly – boom! The International 2018 belongs to OG. Some would call it a cinderella story. OG wins big!
