Overview[edit]

Old Generations was a top Korean StarCraft II pro-team. They viewed themselves as more of a close-knit group of players than a typical pro-team, and the name comes from the fact that most of the members of oGs are former SC1 progamers or coaches.

For the first GSL sponsored league (GSL 4), oGs had 8 Code S players, the most of any team. The Code S players were InCa, NaDa, MC, Ensnare, Zenio, TheWinD (also a coach), jookTo, and Hyperdub. Zenio, Hyperdub, MC, and NaDa made it through to the round of 16. Out of all the teams, oGs had by far the most advancing players to Ro16. TheWind, jookTo, Ensnare, and InCa have been eliminated.

For GSL 5, oGs had 8 Code S players - InCa, NaDa, MC, Ensnare, Zenio, TheWinD, Hyperdub, and TOP. jookTo dropped to Code A when he was defeated 2-0 by BanBans and TOP has moved up to Code S after winning Code A and defeating LegalMind

In GSL 6, oGs continue to have 8 Code S players - InCa, NaDa, MC, Ensnare, Zenio, TheWinD, TOP, and SuperNova. Hyperdub was defeated 2-0 by Rain in the Up and Down matches and SuperNova narrowly entered Code S after losing to Polt 0-2 but defeated TheBest 2-0.

In GSL 7, oGs experienced their first season of only having 7 Code S players - InCa, NaDa, MC, Ensnare, Zenio, TOP, and SuperNova. TheWinD was defeated by Kyrix 2-1 in the Up and Down matches. However, MC intentionally picked TheWinD in his group for GSL 6 so he can try to knock him down to Code A and force him to focus more on his coaching.

In GSL 8, oGs lost another Code S player, leaving them with 6 - NaDa, MC, Ensnare, Zenio, TOP, and SuperNova. InCa placed 3rd in his Up and Down match going 1-2, winning against Leenock but losing to aLive and KeeN. Since he didn't place in the top 2 of this group, he was knocked down to Code A. In the Code A tournament, InCa was defeated in the first round and dropped out of Code A. In the Code S tournament, MC got 4th in his group, playing in Up and Down and getting knocked down to Code A

GSL 9 saw MC drop out of Code A, losing in the first round. They began the season with 5 Code S members: NaDa, Ensnare, Zenio, TOP, and SuperNova. Zenio and TOP went 4th in their groups, forcing them to play in the Up and Down matches.

At MLG Orlando 2011 MC regained his Code S status after reaching the Finals and placing second, due to the GSL-MLG Exchange Program. However, Zenio and TOP both placed last in their Up and Down groups, landing them in Code A. oGs will start GSL November with only 4 Code S players: NaDa, MC, Ensnare, and SuperNova.

Early in May 2012, rumors of oGs disbanding surfaced. This was confirmed on May 16th.[1] Financial difficulty was cited as a major reason for the team's disbandment, as well as the limited number of highly successful players on oGs; their superstar MC had recently transferred to SK Gaming.
