Sumail joins OG

Syed Sumail "Suma1L" Hassan has finally found a new home in OG after four months of sitting on the sidelines. 

At the premiere of the latest True Sight documentary featuring OG and Nigma (ex-Team Liquid), things turned to the future of OG at the end of the night. 

With three players having departed the active roster in as many days - Anathan ‘Ana’ Pham announced his extended break lasting until next season and Jesse 'Jerax' Vainikka announced his retirement from Dota 2 and Sebastien '7ckngMad/Ceb' Debs has decided to return to his coaching position - OG dropped the news of one new addition. And it was quite the bomb. 

Syed Sumail 'Suma1L' Hassan will now be joining the OG lineup for the rest of the season, and fans are overjoyed. 

After being sidelined for four months, over what has been rumored and speculated to be contractual issues, the 'King' will now be able to compete at the highest levels of Dota 2 once again and he, himself, has said -

"I am just very excited. The most I have been in my entire life.”

Syed Sumail “Suma1L” Hassan joined Evil Geniuses in 2015 as a 15-year-old who had started to gain recognition in NEL, the North American Elite League. The addition seemed rather unconventional but would soon prove to be spectacular as the young player grew into one of the most legendary and famed core players in the world, winning TI5 at just 16 years old and becoming a highly decorated player since. 

He parted ways with the organization in the post TI shuffle and headed to Quincy Crew (now Chaos) but only a few hours after qualifying for the first minor of the season, QCY Manager Jack Chen announced that Suma1L left the roster and has been teamless since then.

There are still two more slots to fill on the team and OG has promised more information in the next day or so. 

For those that missed it here is the True Sight TI9 documentary in full. 

Current OG roster:
Pakistan Syed Sumail 'Suma1L' Hassan
Finland Topias 'Topson' Taavitsainen
Denmark Johan 'n0tail' Sundstein

France Sebastien 'Ceb' Debs (coach)
