Sébastien Félix Albert Debs, known as “Ceb,” is a 29-year-old French Dota 2 player who has been representing OG Esports for over five years. Previously, he had played for teams like Kaipi, Denial, and more.

The biggest tournament in the Dota 2 esports scene, The International, will be held between October 7-17 in Romania, and most of the teams are aiming to win the trophy as well as the $40.000.000 prize pool.

Recently, Ceb announced on his official Twitter account that the doctors found out that he was undergoing a retinal detachment on his left eye during the routine medical check-up, and he was few hours away from losing sight.

Therefore, the veteran player went under emergency surgery, and fortunately enough, everything went without any single problem. However, Ceb revealed that he might miss The International tournament because of that.

In the post, Ceb pointed out that he is doing his best to recover from the surgery as soon as possible, but it is still uncertain if he will be healthy enough to attend The International or not. 

Ceb announced:

“As you might already know by now, I was indeed hit with a very bad news few days ago. During a very routine medical check-up, I was informed by the doctor that I was undergoing a retinal detachment in my left eye, and that I was few hours away from losing sight irreversibly.

Only solution was to get emergency surgery, which I of course went through with. No matter how much we love DotA, some things will always come first. It went well, and that was the most important part.

This bad news felt like the sky collapsing on me, as you can imagine. Ever since I have been fighting every day to try to gain ground on the pain and the fatigue, hoping my recovery process would still allow me to attend TI.

Unfortunately, as of now, I still can’t know if I will be back in a playing shape in time. It is a huge blow for me and the team, of course, but over the years I have learnt to look at the positives of every challenge life throws at me.”
