Ceb and N0tail Talk About Playing with Noone [Dota2]

It has been a pleasing sight for Dota 2 fans to see some of the former OG members return to professional play with a new team, Old G. The cherry on top is the fact that two veterans are also present within the team, Volodymyr "Noone" Minenko and Arif "MSS" Anwar. Sébastien "Ceb" Debs and Johan "N0tail" Sundstein discussed their experiences playing with Noone on OG's Monkey Business Show Episode 50. As Ceb said, Noone's gameplay appears very aggressive from the outside, but in reality, he's a very calm individual. Furthermore, N0tail mentioned that it had been a pleasure discussing Dota 2 with him, and described their ordeal playing ranked games.

After N0tail noted that he was slowly getting back into the groove after being away from competitive Dota 2 for a year. He also mentioned that part of the process involved exchanging ideas with Noone, Ceb also expressed his delight at the time spent so far with the player.

Noone's personality turned out to be quite different from what Ceb had expected given that he hadn't interacted with him much in the past.

“It’s been great having him [Noone] around, online for me. But he’s super chill actually, very very chill. I mean, I never really got a chance to interact with him so much but he has such an aggressive style of Dota that I did not expect him to be that chill. Not that I expected him not to be chill but if you know what I mean… His Dota is very kind of hot tempered. That’s how it feels like when you play against him.”

N0tail quickly turned the conversation towards Noone's efforts in ranked games. The conversation, however, quickly took a hilarious turn when N0tail mentioned how random players with low KDAs would flame both him and Noone in these games.

“You should see the gravity training he is doing in the pubs right now bro. If you go check his page as well, it’s red on red, it’s rough and the people he has with him call him - Div 2 trash and stuff. It’s the same thing with me. They flame me when they are queuing. They are flaming both of us. It’s hard. It’s hard mode, he has 15k networth on Morph at like 22 minutes. It’s an unbelievable game - 10-0, Linken, Manta everything, and then he has 0-13 offlane Viper flaming him.”

Ceb and N0tail jokingly said that these ranked gamers have a very self-inflated view of themselves and will, no matter what, look down on players like Noone who are recognized professionals.

Since Topias "Topson" Taavitsainen persisted in the midlaner role, Noone has had to shift from a midlaner to a carry for Old G. He may not be enjoying playing carry in ranked games, but has performed fairly well for Old G thus far, helping the team reach the grand final of the closed qualifiers of the 2023 Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) Winter Tour in Western Europe (WEU). Division 2 qualification is one series away for the team.
