OG is a European professional Dota 2 team created from the former (monkey) Business.OG was created as the new team of former (monkey) Business players. The team's breakthrough occurred at the Frankfurt Major in late November, 2015. They fought through the lower bracket, defeating TI5 champions and runner-ups, Evil Geniuses and CDEC Gaming, as well as the European powerhouse Team Secret. By winning the 2016 Manila Major, OG became the first team in Dota 2 to win two official Valve events. Originally starting off under the name (monkey) Business, OG was a fledgling team with huge potential, consisting of the likes of experienced players like n0tail and Fly along with pubstars like Miracle-.

The team broke out in its third tournament, defeating European powerhouse Team Secret at The Frankfurt Major. After a fourth place finish at The Summit 4, the team hit a slump and ended with 7-8th place in the Shanghai Major. Nonetheless, the team rebounded with a 3rd place finish at EPICENTER and another title at the Manila Major. The team proceeded to stomp Natus Vincere at ESL One Frankfurt 2016, winning the tournament and securing their invite to The International 2016. In the team's first International, they proceeded to dominate their bracket, and ended the group stages at the top of their group. They were, however, unable to maintain their momentum, and fell to the loser's bracket against MVP Phoenix. In what has been referred to as one of the biggest upsets in professional Dota 2, the team was eliminated by TnC Gaming and finished 9-12th. Shortly after their disappointing run, OG announced that MoonMeander would no longer be an active player, and that Cr1t- and Miracle- would be leaving the team.
