The last couple of days for OG have been a rollercoaster of emotions. After Anathan "ana" Pham announced that he was not going to take part in TI 10, Jesse "JerAx" Vainikka released a long statement where he basically says that he does not enjoy Dota 2 anymore and thus, he will be retiring from it.
Sometimes building a legacy requires to step out from the light.
While still active in the roster @Ceb_dota is changing direction and will focus on helping OG players reach their potential.

Today, we got yet another bad news from the two-time TI champions. Although no one expected it, Sébastien "Ceb" Debs will leave the OG active roster. He explains his position fully in the OG announcement, but his feelings can be summed up here:
“Changes are healthy, perhaps even required. It has been one hell of a ride. Ever since ana and Topson joined us, DotA has never felt the same again. I believe we’ve built the best team in DotA, I am very convinced of that.”...
I feel like it’s time for me to find ways to give back... Johan and Topias are looking at their third title, and so am I. I will be alongside them once they lift the trophy again. As usual, I’ll do whatever it takes to see the group succeed, and that sometimes means sacrificing some of your own personal targets
It is time for me to take a step back, and remove myself from the active roster. I will be taking a role within OG in which I will be able to help all teams and players with increasing their performance.”
It's a sad thing for many fans to see, but it's relieving to know that he will continue to impact the team. Regardless, his legacy will live on and continue to inspire Dota 2 players for years to come.
