Old G will still have the chance to climb up Division 1 of the Dota Pro Circuit Western Europe next season after Adam “Aramis” Moroz joined the team in its match-up against Nigma Galaxy last Wednesday.
Aramis, who vowed to never play again with Old G due to undisclosed reasons, gave the team a helping hand and participated in the Game 1 draft against Nigma Galaxy.
Right after the draft, Aramis immediately disconnected from the game which forced Old G to play four-against-five in the opener before eventually forfeiting the second series.
The DPC rulebook states that “A team that uses 4 substitutions and forfeits the next match, for this reason, is automatically disqualified from the rest of the competition, and all its opponents from previous and subsequent games get the win by default.”

Old G needed Aramis to play one more series in order for them to escape qualification and still remain in the hunt for a Division I slot.
Vladimir “RodjER” Nikogosian is set to replace Aramis for the rest of the season as Old G, who slipped to a 3-2 standing, aims to win all of its remaining matches to get at least one of the two spots bound for Division I.
