In an official announcement, Ceb said it was not a "definitive retirement" and he would keep his options open on his next move.

He wrote: "It is time for me to take a step back, and remove myself from the active roster. I will be taking a role within OG in which I will be able to help all teams and players with increasing their performance. Whether it is Dota or CS:GO, OG is now a home for great champions to come.

"I’ll be able to put my experience to even better use alongside these talents. I do not want this to sound like a definitive retirement, even though it could very well end up being it. I love the surprises that comes with life, therefore I’ll always keep every door open.

"I’ll keep flexibility when it comes to which field I’ll be focusing on, depending on teams needs. I am blessed to be surrounded with great people, such as my dear friend Sockshka. We’re building a great staff around teams, so that the experience acquired lives forever."
