After G2’s rough loss against Fnatic in the first week of their VALORANT Champions Tour campaign, G2 Esports come out swinging against SuperMassive Blaze with a 2-0 sweep to earn themselves a win in Europe, Middle East & Africa Challengers groups. One of the roster’s longest-tenured members, Auni “AvovA” Chahade, said the win was a long time coming for one of the biggest esports organizations in the world.

“Feels pretty good to be honest,” AvovA said. “Feels like it’s been a long time since we’ve seen that. To be honest, we just played our own game. We’ve been struggling a little bit. Versus Fnatic too, we lost unlosable rounds, I’ll say. We have to work on that. In Fnatic series and this one too, we threw pistol rounds from 4v2.”

AvovA also provided insight into the comments about G2’s “lacking” attacking side performance.

“It is pretty sure that our defense side is better than our attack side if you look at the stats,” he said. “We won thanks to the round we got on the defense side. I think we’re pretty good on attack side too, but we just didn’t show it yet. But we still got some work to do, obviously.”

The improvements could help G2 in the coming week as they go up against unbeaten Guild Esports and former G2 player  Jose Luis “koldamenta” Aranguren Herrero as well as fellow Turkey representatives BBL Esports and former teammate Melih “pAura” Karaduran.

“To be honest it’s going to be pretty much like this one,” AvovA said of the matchup against pAura. “I’ve seen them struggling a bit, especially my former teammate pAura. He doesn’t look like the same player I’ve played with. So yeah, if he’s that bad, we’ll 2-0 them.”
