Starladder iLeague StarSeries Season 3 have issued a direct invitation to OG to compete in the main event scheduled in only a few weeks.
The European squad have RSVP’d positively and will be heading out to Shanghai China. Rounding out the eight teams, there is little doubt the action will be nail biting and the performances spectacular.
Barely two weeks ago OG slid into second place at Dota Pit Season 5, being narrowly edged out by Evil Geniuses 2:3 in the grand finals.

The most surprising addition to the team was 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.
The player centered organization was the first team to win two Valve championship titles but slid into a disappointing 9-12th place finish at TI6.
Last season the team had taken took third place at MDL 2016, second at The Summit 6 and the championship title for Elimination Mode 2.0. They then rounded out their season with the championship title for the Boston Major – making history as the first team to now win three Valve events.
Making no changes to their roster following their feat, they seized second at Dota Pit Season 5.
