OG.Seed roster disbanded earlier this month leaving speculation swirling as to their new destination. But now those questions have been answered, in part, as Rasmus “Chessie” Blomdin and Andreas Per “Xibbe” Ragnemalm land on new roster 5men for the OMEGA League Europe Closed Qualifier.

The lineup, which was revealed as the OMEGA League updated its direct invites for qualifiers, also features veterans Rasmus “Misery” Filipsen, Johan “pieliedie” Åström, and Marcus “Ace” Hoelgaard. Those three players were most recently part of the disbanded Cloud9 roster, which ended its Dota 2 division earlier this year.

This fusion roster of disbanded teams will compete against the likes of HellRaisers, Vikin.gg, Team Unique, Team Empire, Cyber Legacy, B8, and nine other hopefuls, for one of just two spots in the the Immortal division of the Omega League. Failure will see them head to the less prestigious, but equally competitive Divine league, alongside many of the same teams they face here.

5men’s roster:

  • Andreas Per “Xibbe” Ragnemalm
  • Rasmus “Chessie” Blomdin
  • Marcus “Ace” Hoelgaard
  • Rasmus “Misery” Filipsen
  • Johan “pieliedie” Åström

OMEGA League may just be a testing ground for this new roster, or the start of something more permanent. Whatever the case may be, you can catch 5men as a team between August 1st-9th.
