A big roster overhaul has taken place at G2! The organisation has separated from paTiTek, ardiis and zeek and welcomes koldamenta as well as nukkye and AvovA, two former Team Heretics players.
Patryk "paTiTek" Fabrowski and Ardis "ardiis" Svarenieks were present since the beginning of G2 Esports on Valorant. In 2020, they won numerous tournaments such as the Mandatory.gg Cup and the BLAST Twitch Invitational. Aleksander "zeek" Zygmunt came to replace Davidp at the beginning of 2021 and has already found his new organisation: Acend. After a succesful year in 2020, things became more complicated for G2. They did not qualify for any masters and were always eliminated in the first round of the Challengers they participated in.
In order to replace these 3 players, G2 Esports picked in Team Heretics and recruited Žygimantas "nukkye" Chmieliauskas et Auni "AvovA" Chahade. Both players finished 2nd in the first Masters EU and are used to big competitions. In addition to these two players, G2 also welcomes Jose Luis "koldamenta" Aranguren Herrero, straight from Acend and who therefore swaps places with zeek.
These 3 changes are all peer to peer. Koldamenta replaces ardiis with Sova, nukkye replaces the Raze of zeek and AvovA replaces the Omen of paTiTek.
With this renewed roster, G2 will attack Phase 3 of the VCT with new weapons and perhaps succeed in returning to the top as in 2020.
