OG are a well-known organization in Valve games like Dota 2 and CS:GO but it looks like they're finally branching out to Riot Games and it's not League of Legends, but Valorant.
Yesterday, OG announced that they're officially entering the Valorant scene with a team of their own. The news came directly from the source itself.
Us the ultimate Volvo gamers have decided to go and knock at the Rito doors.
You got it right, we’re thrilled and proud to finally be announcing the OG VALORANT squad.
The OG Valorant Roster
OG's new Valorant roster consists of:
- Dylan “aKm” Bignet
- Benjamin “uNKOE” Chevasson
- Kevin “TviQ” Lindström
- Dragan “elllement” Milanović
- Théo “OniBy” Tarlier
- Julien “daemoN” Ducros (Coach and manager of the team)
The squad started off as Monkey Business, a name which was also the original name of OG, before they became OG in Dota 2. Sébastien “Ceb” Debs and Johan “N0tail” Sundstein, co-owners and founders of OG commented:
We’ve heard a lot about the game, and were seduced by the idea behind it as well as how serious the ecosystem is already. When the opportunity to get involved with a roster that you like and you believe in arises, you sometimes just have to grab it. It was the same with CS:GO, sometimes the stars align and you have an opportunity to do something really interesting.

Coach and manager of the team, Julien “daemoN” Ducros added:
We’re all extremely honored to join such a legendary esports organization. Their values and vision are something we highly looked up to when building our objectives and team roadmap. Some of us have known JMR Luna for a while. Without his unbreakable trust, we wouldn’t be here today. On top of being grateful, we’re also extremely eager to make history ahead of this 2021 season and prove ourselves as true OGs.
The organization already has successful teams in Dota 2 and CS:GO and it remains to be seen how well the new OG Valorant roster will do. In Dota 2, OG wrote history by claiming the champions title at The International twice, something which no other team has done so far.
