SumaiL in OG – how was it?
Half year ago OG announced a new roster with Midwan, Saksa and Sumail. The names are powerful, but there were certain questions immediately after the announcement – the team had 3 nominal midlanders, so Sumail and Midwan had to adapt to new roles. The team confidently qualified for ESL One Los Angeles, but then the quarantine began and we did not know the real strength of OG – out of 8 tournaments, the team played with substitutions in five. By the way, Sumail played in all tournaments without substitutions, despite the ping. And he played great. At ESL One Los Angeles, OG took second place, and it was Sumail who was the team’s MVP:
At BLAST Bounty Hunt, OG also managed to get into the top-2, in the final of the lower bracket against Nigma Sumail played 11-0-11 on Likan, and then implemented the strategy with Furion-carry and mid-lane Hungary together with the team:
Seb talked about the beginning of a new era when he left OG. But he did not rule out that he could return
Three OG players ended their careers at once after winning the second Int in a row. Seb remained in the organization and did not rule out that he would return to the role of a player. But it seems that he never left – Seb replaced Midwana in tournaments during quarantine:
“As they say, all good things come to an end sooner or later. I know it usually means nostalgia, sometimes even sadness, but I see more in it. Each new era begins with great changes that mark the end of the previous one.
I will take on a role where I can help all teams and players improve their performance. It doesn’t matter in Dota 2 or CS: GO – OG is now home to upcoming champions. My experience will help me.
I don’t want this to sound like the final decision to end my career, but it may well end there. I love the surprises that life brings, so I will be open to all possibilities. “
Looks like @Ceb got the call of his lifetime …

Sumail could be in EG – Ramses talked about standin in the mid. The second option is Nigma
Ramses recently said that at the OMEGA League, the team will play with a replacement in the mid lane. The official version is Abed’s high ping. EG will participate in the European division, and Sumail is now in North America, so he will also have to play with a high ping. If he really will replace Abed in this tournament, then perhaps the reason for the replacement is not in the ping.
The second option is to go to Nigma… At the last Major, Kuroki’s team finished 9-12, but gained good shape during isolation. The only team that looks much stronger and more stable is Team Secret. The team has been together for more than a year, and the reason for Matumba’s kick was precisely the lack of new ideas. If Kuroki decides that Sumail will be more useful for the team than W33, then we can see the crazy combination of Miracle and Sumail.
