Optic gaming had recently jumped several ranking spots by securing the 2nd position in the ESL Birmingham Major. And so, Top Tier teams like OG and EG were hopes for a lot of their fans to secure their spot with the ESL Birmingham Major, but EG getting knocked out from group stage and OG getting stuck at the Top 6 was a harsh knock on their heads and the Roster change was inevitable.

EG has recently kicked out “Misery”, dropped “Fear” and picked up OG stars S4 and Fly. Now OG is remaining with only 1 of it’s founding players “N0tail”.
EG and OG will have to try their best with what they’ve got and fight it all in the Regional Qualifiers to get into The International.

China Dota 2 SuperMajor will decide on the last 4 teams to get the Direct Invites to The International 8.
