One of the OG players, Sebastian “Ceb” Debs heavily criticized the Russian players in a Dota 2 game last night. He labelled the Russian nationalists as dogs from a third world country and even went on to that: These players deserve to lost their MMR, for which they are ready to sell their own mother.
The incident occurred after a fight with a teammate – Ceb on Necrophos possibly stole the Aegis from Immortal from a Russian Storm Spirit, who did not like it. The players began to argue and swear in the chat, after which the Frenchman broke out in an angry tirade. He said that he is quite successful in the game of Dota2 and he is really not interest to play game with teammates for whom MMR is more important than anything in life. At the end of the skirmish, he called the players “bloody Russian animals.” Full dialogue can be found in the game itself on Id: 4776898273.
Apology from Ceb
The behavior of the reigning TI champion was reported by the Russian, LVR who in that match played as Nyx Assassin in the same team as Debs. He published a post on reddit, but later deleted the message at the request of Ceb. The French player explained that he had nothing against the Russians.
Later, other users shared the post about the behavior of Debs and then the OG player wrote an official statement . He apologized to the players and admitted that he was caught in the heat of the moment and has nothing against the Russians. According to Debs, the player on Storm Spirit behaved toxicly from the very beginning of the match, and after the incident with Aegis he stopped playing together with the team, went AFK and cursed in the chat. This can be confirmed by other participants of the match.
One day wiser

In a month, Ceb and other OG players will arrive in Moscow, where they will perform at EPICENTER Major 2019. We will have to wait and see if Valve will do something about Ceb’s actions since the developer didn’t punish Carlo “Kuku” Palad on similar charges.
Earthshaker Arcana arrives
On the night of May 24, another big new popped up in Dota 2 as Valve added a new Arcana set for Earthshaker. At the moment it is only available to owners of the Battle Pass of The International 2019 who are at least level 365. The set is named as Planetfall and its review has been published on the channel DotaCinema.
Arcana was announced with the release of the Battle Pass on the night of May 8th. Planetfall has two styles – the second can be accessed when a player gets 500 kills with the ultimate ability of the hero, Echo Slam. The Arcan changes the character model, icons, animation abilities, voice acting, and also gives effect and animation on one of the signature items on the hero, Blink Dagger.
