OG brings in MinD_ContRoL, Kitrak for Berlin Major

One of Western Europe’s representatives is running into visa issues for the Berlin Major.

OG will be missing three members of their squad — offlaner Dmitry “DM” Dorokhin, hard support Evgenii “Chu” Makarov, and their coach Mikhail “Misha” Agatov, the organization announced last night.

Nigma Galaxy’s Ivan “MinD_ContRoL” Ivanov and Old G’s Kartik “Kitrak” Rathi be OG’s substitutes for the event.

“We are hope that our players will join us later in the event, but in the meantime we are grateful for both Kitrak and MC coming to our aid,” the WEU team wrote in their announcement.

OG’s last Major win came only one year ago, when they were also faced with visa issues. The team still claimed the ESL One Stockholm Major trophy, and will hope that similar mojo follows them this time.

This will be the second of Nigma’s players attending the Major, after Sumail “SumaiL” Hassan was confirmed to be playing for Team Aster.
