ENCORE FEATURE: iLTW joins OG
January 8, 2019 Victoria Luz
Since Ana’s absence, TI8 champions OG are set to find their carry stand in. Pajkatt has left and iLTW joins OG. Will he bring a breath of fresh air for the champs?
The International 8 champions, OG has undergone roster changes in a short amount of time. With the absence of their best player, Anathan “ana” Pham, OG has been trying to fill the void he has left. Undeniably, the OG’s TI8 roster was their best one yet. But with ana taking a break, they have to find a stand-in as soon as possible.
Pers Anders “Pajkatt” Olsson Lille was the first replacement they took. But after a few weeks, OG has announced Pajkatt’s departure, less than a week before Bucharest Minor. They’ve mentioned in their Facebook post that despite Pajkatt’s potential, the chemistry wasn’t just working.
“OG’s spirit has always been the one of trust and stability. We do not shy away from challenges or hard work, as you all know. We brought in Pajkatt. He is a very mechanically gifted player, a great DotA mind but also a truly professional team member.
During the weeks following his addition to our DotA 2 roster, we faced chemistry issues.
We realized there was not enough space in OG for Pajkatt to express his full potential. His profile, at the end of the way, no matter how excellent it is, did not match.”– OG
