TI8 winners OG have announced that they are releasing Per Anders Olsson “Pajkatt” Lille from their Dota 2 roster. The mid player joined Team OG in November as they were looking to find someone to replace Anathan ‘Ana’ Pham on their roster. However, in just two months of being together, the team has let go of the player. The reason for this decision is the lack of chemistry amongst the players. Dota 2 is a complex game and requires perfect synergy between the different players.
Together with Pajkatt, OG managed to qualify for the Bucharest Minor. The Minor starts in a few days and as such OG have a limited time period to announce the addition of a new player to their team. The Bucharest Minor starts on the 9th of January 2019. The winner of the Minor receives a direct invite to The International 2019.
Team OG Statement
As the second sequence of the DPC circuit is about to start, we will be making changes to the DotA 2 line-up.
Moving forward, we will not be playing with Per Anders ‘Pajkatt’ Olsson Lille.
As we’ve only recently announced he would be replacing Anathan ‘Ana’ Pham, we feel the need to elaborate a little bit more on the step we are presently taking.
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.
Team chemistry is a very complex matter, and regardless of how competent an individual is, sometimes the puzzle just doesn’t come together.That being said, we hope the stay was mutually beneficial. Huge thanks and all the best Pelle !
During our Bootcamp we managed to qualify for the Bucharest Minor, for that we are giving Pelle a cut, and also one if we manage to make it to the major.
Team Captain Notail had only nice words to say for Pajkatt. He acknowledges that transitioning into a new team is always going to be a difficult move for any player. He reminisces the time spent together in Paris.
Pajkatt is a great player, and I feel blessed that I got the chance to learn from him, but when a team with recent success brings in a new player, it is a difficult position to be in for anyone.
I’d like to extend a huge thanks to Pajkatt for the time we spent in Paris, and also a huge thanks to everyone else who keeps supporting OG through thick and thin!
All the best in the future PJ
And a kickass 2019 to you all!
Johan ‘N0tail’ Sundstein.
The mutual understanding between the player and the rest of the team was evident in the statements. With just a few days remaining, we should expect more news from OG tomorrow. They will hold try-outs to fill the position left vacant by the mid-player.
Thanks for giving me the chance to play, it’s unfortunate that things didn’t work out, I wish OG good luck for what’s coming next.
