OG Seed disbands due to multi-team ownership conflicts|Dot Esports
There’s a reason that so couple of companies own multiple rosters and can manage the feat without issue in the Dota 2 competitive scene– and that’s due to the large conflict of interest that occurs with it.
OG has faced several problems when attempting to navigate the existing competitive landscape with OG Seed. And today, OG decided to disband the team– Omar “Madara” Dabachach, Rasmus “Chessie” Blomdin, Andreas “Xibbe” Ragnemalm, Zfreek, Petu “Peksu” Vaatainen (captain), and Allen “Bonkers” Cook (supervisor)– for the benefit of both the company and its gamers.
The main concern that the organization was facing was the inability to have the primary OG lineup and Seed compete in the very same occasions. Most competition organizers do not permit multiple lineups from the same org to contend in the very same competitions, suggesting Seed would be relegated to mainly tier two or 3 events, which isn’t what the initial strategy was.
Valve occasions enable multi-team ownership to function and compete in Minors and Majors with no problems up till The International. But the pivot to online events put a time on for how long Seed would last.
” We constantly understood the two lineups would not have the ability to complete in TI10 under OG, however as the new calendar started shaping into regional competitions, we saw that having 2 lineups competing in the very same tournament produced a possible dispute of interest,” OG stated. “We worked with other groups and Tournament Organizers to look for an option, however in spite of our efforts, we understood that it was still most likely a little too quickly to attempt to correctly execute multi-team ownership.”
Due to the fact that of this conflict, OG is now working with the Seed roster to find them a new home and will keep them under contract until July 1– or till an offer is reached with a brand-new organization.
Seed was an excellent concept that likewise wound up being a rather effective venture for OG because all of the players thrived beneath n0tail, Ceb, and the organization’s leadership. The lineup contended in more than a lots tournaments, certifying for ESL One Los Angeles Online and WePlay! Pushka League while playing against some top-level skill.
The highest point of the subsidiary roster was a second-place surface at Dota Summit 12, where they distress Evil Geniuses and made the finals in what would be the final Dota LAN event prior to the COVID-19 pandemic actually took hold.
OG is freely assisting field offers for the team for the rest of the month, so there need to be news of possible transfers for the promising roster in the coming weeks.
