OG isn’t playing on the same level they were back at The International 2019, but that’s not stopping the team from keeping up the cheekiness that made their victorious runs so memorable. 

Johan “N0tail” Sundstein showed that during one of the team’s Epic League matches against Team Nigma while he was playing as Magnus. In the middle of an early game skirmish, OG’s captain made the strange decision to park himself atop the staircase near the radiant tier-one tower in the top lane. It wasn’t initially clear why he was doing so, but then he started to pump fake Skewers.

N0tail was looking to charge through Nigma’s Aliwi “w33” Omar and place him on the ward spot near the tower. Though it took a few tries, N0tail found his chance and stuck him on the cliff.

Ultimately, it was a minor inconvenience as w33 used a Town Portal Scroll after a short time to get down and Amer “Miracle-” al-Barqawi picked up a kill that made this a favorable engagement for Nigma. Things didn’t get much better from there for OG either, as Nigma took the win in the best-of-one tiebreaker match. But it was still a hilarious moment from one of Dota 2’s most carefree squads.

How much is N0tail worth?

N0tail has earned over $6.9 million in prize pool winnings throughout his esports career. The vast majority of this comes from his two The International championship victories, which were worth over $5 million. The rest of the OG roster have all earned over $5 million each.

What role is N0tail?

Since 2018, N0tail has played a hard support role with OG’s lineup. He has played in a number of other roles throughout his Dota 2 career, however. For the team’s first two major championships, he was the team’s mid laner. After a roster shakeup following The International 2016, he transitioned into a carry role. The only role he hasn’t played at the professional level with a notable team is off laner.

Does N0tail own OG?

OG is partially owned by a number of different players, including N0tail. The list of owners also includes teammate Sebastian “Ceb” Debs, COO Charlie Debs, and CRO Xavier Oswald.
