G2 Esports released three players from the previous iteration of their roster just hours before announcing their newest additions. Patryk “paTiTek” Fabrowski, Ardis “ardiis” Svarenieks and Aleksander “zeek” Zygmunt were all released from their contracts with G2 Esports on June 2. That left Jacob “pyth” Mourujärvi and franchise player Oscar “mixwell” Cañellas as the only remaining players on the roster. 

Unlike other organizations, G2 Esports conducted an even trade for their players with players from other teams. G2’s in-game leader zeek was acquired by Acend, which traded their own in-game leader Jose Luis “koldamenta” Aranguren Herrer. There have been rumors surrounding where the two remaining players that were dropped from G2 Esports could end up. Team Heretics also released Žygimantas “nukkye” Chmieliauskas and Auni “AvovA” Chahade who have now been picked up by G2 Esports.

G2 Esports revamp roster after missing Masters 2

G2 Esports had solid performances in Europe after picking up a star-studded roster of retired Counter-Strike: Global Offensive players. However, after placing third at First Strike Europe, things went downhill for the team. They struggled at the first VALORANT Champions Tour Challengers event and continued to struggle at Challengers 2 and 3. 

The final straw was the team’s early loss to Team Vitality, which earned them a bottom 32nd placement at the Stage 2 Challengers. Those struggles only continued when Fnatic knocked G2 Esports out of the second Stage 2 Challengers and eliminated them from Challengers Finals contention. With Masters 1 and 2 missed out of the picture, G2 Esports opted for a new look to get back on the right track. Their current roster will now include Mixwell, Pyth, Nukkye, AnovA and koldamenta.
