OG, the professional Danish organization best recognized for their Red Bull sponsorship, became the latest org to venture into Valorant. Their roster? The orgless Monkey business.
OG’s Roster is Already Impressive
OG already hosts iconic teams in both CS:GO and Dota 2. In the latter, they became the only team to ever be crowned World Dota 2 Champions twice. Fun fact, OG was founded in 2015 as (monkey) Business so it was destined that they pick up the Valorant roster of the same name. Sébastien “Ceb” Debs and Johan “N0tail” Sundstein, co-owners and founders of OG, seem to agree. In the official reveal post, they said “sometimes the stars align and you have an opportunity to do something really interesting.”
The squad made their debut at Red Bull Home Ground before putting on an impressive show at VCT 2021 EU Challengers 1 Qualifier. After a flawless run, they were among the eight teams to make it to Challengers 1. There, they were the only orgless team to play in Challengers 1 where they defeated Guild Esports 2-0. Their player Dragan “elllement” Milanović was also named the tournament MVP by Liquipedia. We got to chat with Banjamin “uNKOE” Chevasson following their qualification into Challengers 2.
Their debut under the OG banner will be the VCT 2021 EU Challengers 2 on February 20 and 21. If they place in the top four, they make their way directly to Masters, bypassing Challengers 3. We will continue covering the Valorant Champions Tour in great detail and will keep you updated on how OG fare.
OG’s full roster is as follows:
- Dylan “aKm” Lindström
- Dragan “elllement” Milanović
- Théo “OniBy” Tarlier
- Kevin “TviQ” Lindström
- Benjamin “uNKOE” Chevasson
- Julien “daemoN” Ducros (Coach)
