Originally known as (monkey) Business, this European team became the first in Dota 2 history to win four official Valve events. Their rise began at the Frankfurt Major in 2015, after defeating a major powerhouse, Team Secret. Later, they became record-breaking champions winning the 2017 Kiev Major. Now, at the Dota 2 International, OG sets its sights on its next conquest, competing against seventeen world-renowned teams in a battle worth over twenty-one million dollars and counting.
