In the course of the livestream of Janne “Gorgc” Stefanovski on thirtieth Sept 2021, a viewer with the username “monkagiga1234” typed “@gorgc ceb not enjoying , micke stand in.”
Gorgc was stunned by this message and requested why the viewer had written it. As well as, he discovered no posts on OG’s Twitter conveying what the consumer had mentioned. In mild of miCKe’s function as a carry participant, Gorgc meant to dismiss the declare earlier than the consumer mentioned, “SumaiL’s brother instructed me, bro.”
Monkagiga1234 knew that SumaiL would be a part of OG in June 2021 beforehand
The viewer had another fascinating factor to say in his additional remarks. In help of his declare, he talked about that he had already instructed Gorgc about OG’s safelaner, Syed “SumaiL” Sumail Hassan becoming a member of the workforce in June 2021 earlier than any official information was launched. Gorgc scrolled by way of the consumer’s chat historical past and verified that they’d typed, “SUMAIL JOIN OG ANA OUT” on eighth June 2021.

Following this, he regarded by way of his buddy listing within the Dota 2 shopper. He observed that miCKe and the remainder of the OG gamers (besides Ceb) had been the one ones in his buddy listing enjoying in a personal foyer. Maybe this might point out that OG had been scrimming with miCKe as a stand-in.
To additional examine this, we regarded by way of miCKe and Ceb’s pub sport historical past on Dota2protracker – a website that tracks the general public match historical past of professional gamers during the last 8 days.
MiCKe has performed 30 matches on his principal account over the previous eight days, based on Dota 2 professional tracker. Nearly all of those matches have been performed within the offlane. MiCKe solely started actively enjoying pubs 5 days in the past. Previous to this, he had been inactive for a while.

Ceb didn’t take part on this match, to which OG’s new head coach, Misha crammed in. Based on the group, its offlaner was unavailable resulting from an inconvenience.
OG’s latest social media exercise relating to Ceb has been missing
There was little social media exercise from OG relating to Ceb compared to different members of the workforce. Listed here are the variety of pictures of every member of the roster and head coach, Mikhail “Misha” Agatov that OG has posted within the final week on Twitter and Instagram.
Ceb was solely part of one picture, which was posted on twenty eighth Sept with N0tail. This picture not like the remainder of the pictures doesn’t appear to be from the bootcamp. Moreover that, Ceb’s final look was on twenty first Sept in a picture the place he, N0tail, and SumaiL had been noticed enjoying video games.

Whereas none of that is stable proof of Ceb’s absence from the bootcamp, it does make just a few OG followers sweat a bit of.
Regardless of all these coincidences, we have to remember that all these elements can solely be seen as circumstantial proof and are usually not definitive proof of the rumor’s authenticity.
