Dota 2: OG releases Pajkatt after two months

OG esports announced it has released Per Anders Olsson "Pajkatt" Lille from its Dota 2 roster ahead of the next DPC circuit.

Pajkatt was signed in November to replace Anathan "ana" Pham, but the organization said that Pajkatt's "profile" did not match with the rest of the roster.

"OG's spirit has always been the one of trust and stability," the organization wrote in a Facebook post. "We do not shy away from challenges or hard work, as you all know. We brought in Pajkatt. He is a very mechanically gifted player, a great DotA mind but also a truly professional team member.

"During the weeks following his addition to our DotA 2 roster, we faced chemistry issues.

"We realized there was not enough space in OG for Pajkatt to express his full potential. His profile, at the end of the way (sic), no matter how excellent it is, did not match.

"Team chemistry is a very complex matter, and regardless of how competent an individual is, sometimes the puzzle just doesn't come together.

That being said, we hope the stay was mutually beneficial. Huge thanks and all the best Pelle!"

OG said it will hold tryouts to fill Pajkatt's spot, with a replacement expected to be announced Friday.

"These steps are necessary in the road to championships," OG wrote. "Therefore, we will keep working hard in order to be ready for the competitive challenges ahead of us."
