It looks like Old G will go through the next qualifiers without two of its main guns.
Two-time The International champion Johan “N0tail” Sundstein and Arif “MSS” Anwar are no longer with the team according to the Dota 2 Majors Registration Page.
N0tail already hinted during an episode of the Monkey Business podcast that he does have any plan to resume his professional Dota 2 career. He said that he could not go down the same path again and even described it as a ‘treacherous thing.’

“What I definitely do not want to do right now is to sacrifice everything again to achieve my full potential. I know [if] I will go down this path again if I continue, it’s a treacherous thing. I know all of us in Old G felt the same when we lost twice in the Closed Qualifiers, more than it should have,” said N0tail.
“Overall I’m happy but moving forward, I don’t think I can go down this path again. What’s going to happen to Old G and everyone’s future is still up in the air,” he added.
Meanwhile, Sébastien “Ceb” Debs, Topias “Topson” Taavitsainen, and Volodymyr “Noone” Minenko remained on the team’s active roster according to the Dota 2 Majors Registration Page as well.
Old G successfully advanced through the initial qualifying rounds of the WEU Division II, but unfortunately, they were unable to proceed further in the closed qualifiers. The team had two opportunities to qualify for Division II, however, they were defeated by Ooredoo Thunders and Monaspa in the upper and lower bracket finals, respectively.
