The first two games of the championship series were carried by the Ammar “ATF” Al-Assaf’s powerful plays on Mars in the offlane. ATF’s space-creation and early engage potential helped the rest of OG snowball their way into victory. OG kept the momentum on their side and managed to wipe Team Aster in a stunning 3-0 championship series.
OG’s win against Team Aster is a shot at retribution. The two teams met in the PGL Arlington Major playoffs, where Team Aster would kick OG out of the tournament. The team played with stand-in Evgenii “Chuvash” Makarov, who filled in for Mikhail “Misha” Agatov and help carry the team towards victory. OG’s recent tournament performances have been stellar, which could potentially translate into a stellar performance in The International.
