Ana’s interesting and entertaining way of communicating with OG was revealed by his teammate Sébastien “Ceb” Debs after a big win.

In a post-game interview after OG defeated Team Secret in Week 4 of the DreamLeague Season 15 DPC Europe Upper Division, Ceb shared how OG uses Anathan “ana” Pham’s expressions to make pivotal in-game decisions.

Ceb explained that, since their carry player isn’t that vocal with the team, they call it the ‘ana soundboard’. The team uses his reactions to gauge situations as they’re happening in-game.

The ana soundboard

  • Oh — definition: an unexpected outcome; as if to say, “Maybe we should go back in?”
  • Aww — definition: get out
  • *Deep breath sound* — definition: [I] don’t know what’s about to come.

“We were half joking about it, but it became half serious,” said Ceb.

No matter how you look at it, OG’s two-time TI-winning carry player has given the team the boost it needed at the start of DPC 2021 season 2. OG is currently tied for third place alongside Team Nigma, with a 3-2 record.

OG has two matches left to play. First, they will face Team Nigma on May 16 at 3:00 a.m. GMT+8.

This is followed by DreamLeague Season 15 DPC Europe Upper Division’s closing match against Team Liquid on May 20 at 12:00 a.m. GMT+8.

Watch them live on DreamLeague’s official Twitch channel.
