OG has revealed their new roster for the upcoming Dota 2 Fall Major season to include veteran players Gustav “s4” Magnusson and Jesse “JerAx” Vainikka, along with new face of Anathan “Ana” Pham from Australia. The player centered organization is the first team to win two Valve championship titles but slid into a disappointing 9-12th place finish at TI6.

Long time friends and teammates Tal “Fly” Aizik and Johan “N0tail” Sundstein continued with the OG brand they created, and rebuilt up the roster with the hopes for another historic and ground breaking year.
The most surprising addition to the team is Anathan “Ana” Pham, a relatively unknown face for Western fans. Ana is an Australian who has been spending time in China as part of Invitcus Gaming roster as substitute while Luo “Ferrari_430” Feichi was absent.

OG 2015-16 season
The team first defied the odds when they rose through the lower brackets, bested The International 5 champions, Evil Geniuses, and upset favorites Team Secret to rocket to the top and claim the championship title and the staggering 1.1 million dollars prize at the first Dota Major, in Frankfurt.
They followed up with a first place finish at DreamLeague Season 4 but slid into the 5th-8th place at the DotaPit Season 4 LAN. Stepping back up, they secured the fourth place at StarLadder iLeague Dota Invitational after being bested by Na’Vi, 2:1, in the lower brackets.
They continued to re-climb the ladder of success and took a remarkable third place at EPICENTER Moscow and then the championship title at DreamLeague Season 5 one week later, after they absolutely shellacked Na’Vi, 3:0.
In another ground-breaking moment, OG seized their second Valve championship title at the Manila Major, when they defeated Team Liquid, 3:1 – becoming the first team to claim two Valve titles. Merely one week later they claimed the title for ESL One Frankfurt and second place at The Summit 5.
The team took a surprising and disappointing 9-12th place finish at TI6, after being eliminated TnC in the second round of lower brackets.
