Sébastien "Ceb" Debs had a lot of ups and downs in his career. However, one thing is for certain, he will go down in Dota 2 books as one of the few players that won two TIs in a row. Here, you can find all there is about his personal life and early career so do not miss out.

Early Career

Sébastien Debs was born in France on May 11, 1992. This French Dota 2 player kickstarted his professional career back in 2011. If you followed the scene back then, then you probably did not know him under this alias.

Prior to being called Ceb, Sébastien was known as 7ckngMad. His first team was Team Shakira which he represented for roughly a year. After a successful run at DreamHack Winter, Western Wolves signed Shakira's entire roster.

It is important to mention that Ceb was never rated as the star player that would do most of the heavy lifting. We can freely say that he was a commander who had an idea on how to play the game and he was not afraid to lead.

“If you lose, you have no money to pay the rent. We lost DreamHack and we were sleeping on the floor that night.” - Sébastien "Ceb" Debs

He stayed with Western Wolves for only a couple of months before joining mTw. The team found success immediately as they qualified for the TI 2. However, it did not go well – the entire roster choked hard and were among the first teams to pack their bags.

After an awful showing, Ceb was released from the team. He played for many other orgs from 2013 to 2015 before finally finding his home in OG and making history.

Ceb did not have a perfect career. However, he worked hard and overall, he was rewarded with well-over $5.500,00 in prize pool money that he won.
