Syed Sumail “Suma1L” Hassan aka the “Evil King” has officially joined OG’s DotA 2 roster to reclaim his throne.



In a reveal made earlier today at the conclusion of The International 2019 “True Sight” documentary’s premiere in Berlin, Germany, OG announced its newest member, followed by a confirmation from the team in the form of an official blog post.

For the past week, fans of the back-to-back TI champions were left worried as three players of the five-man lineup that won them the “Aegis of the Immortal” trophy two times in a row declared their absence in this year’s competition.

Anathan “ana” Pham will be taking a break until the next season, while Sébastien “Ceb” Debs decided to “step out from the light,” and focus on helping the team as an inactive part of the roster.

However, probably the gloomiest news that fans of the team ever received this week was Jesse “JerAx” Vainikka’s retirement from the Dota 2 competitive scene.

“I have no willingness nor passion to play Dota 2 anymore, and I have trouble fitting myself into my competitor’s shoes. For me the decision to pursue to another direction is clear, and I have no doubts about it,” said Vainikka in the blog post on January 26, announcing his retirement.

But in an interesting turn of events, OG formally forms a pact with a former TI champion, and arguably the best mid lane player in the game. Not only that, he was a key member of the team which was considered their greatest rival, NA-based Evil Geniuses or EG.

“Once a rival who lived evil; he will now become a precious ally,” according to the video presentation they showed, announcing Hassan joining forces with the reigning TI winners.


Sumail had his fair share of the champion glory when EG won the title in 2015. At that time, he was only 15 years old and is the youngest player to ever win the competition. However, shortly after last year’s TI season, which boasts having the highest prize pool in all of e-sports to this date, Hassan parted ways with EG concluding a five-year stay with them.

While there is still no specification on his role for OG, at the time of writing, Sumail is currently at the top of the NA leaderboards for both core and support roles.

OG’s team captain, Johan “N0tail” Sundstein, even made a joke about how Hassan, together with Topias “Topson” Taavitsainen, also a mid laner, would need to roll to decide who gets to play certain roles at the start of every game. Ceb also added some spice to the pot by warning everyone about “toxic dual-lane pubs”.

The rest of the roster will be announced during the "OG Night" on January 29, which will be streamed on the Redbull Twitch channel live from Berlin. The newly-inducted team member will also be present at the event as confirmed by the team:


“Sumail will also be taking part to the OG Night tomorrow night at 20:00 CET on the RedBull Twitch channel, and answer ‘your’ questions in the AMA during the show as well. Make sure to join on us there."
