G2 Esports has been struggling to find success in the tournaments after their victory at Six Invitational 2019 in February. Through the end of the year, they parted ways with Joonas “jNSzki” Savolainen and Daniel “Goga” Mazorra Romero and added Aleksi “UUNO” Työppönen and Pascal “cryn” Alouane.

In 2020, G2 Esports continued to underperform in the tournaments, and the organization decided to cut one of the in-game leaders, Fabian “Fabian” Hällsten, as well as announcing the departure of cryn.

Although they added such talents as Ben “CTZN” McMillan and Jake “Virtue” Grannan to create a super roster once again, the chemistry wasn’t there for them. In 2021, Niclas “Pengu” Mouritzen announced his retirement, and Jordan “Kayak” Morley announced to replace Pengu.

However, Juhani “Kantoraketti” Toivonen and Aleksi “UUNO” Työppönen had been underperforming for a while, and it became more problematic for G2 Esports. Therefore, the organization decided to bench both of these players.

There are no players left in the active roster from the legendary G2 Esports roster who dominated the scene for years with this decision.

“Hi, as you see it on the bench of G2 roster. This is really good for me personally because I really need a break and relax time from the game,” UUNO talks about burnout problems. “I have been feeling big burnout and I really don’t wanna play at the moment. I will be taking this summer off for me and see if I wanna retire/quit playing for good after it because I will not force myself to play if I don’t have passion for it.”

Kantoraketti, on the other hand, is looking forward to play in the future.”I’m excited for whatever’s next for me I’m still motivated I want to keep playing and compete and where ever I end up I will keep putting in my all,” he said. “I think having a fresh start with a new team right now is something I really need and really look forward to if I do get that opportunity.”

Furthermore, G2 Esports announced the signings of Lucas “Hungry” Reich, who had recently played for Team Vitality, and MnM Gaming’s young and talented player Jonas “Jonka” Kaczmarzyk.

Guess who’s back. Super hyped for this project, amazing team and amazing organization,” Hungry showed his excitement. “I will put everything I have into this team to fuckin lift this hammer!”

After the announcement dropped, legendary player Pengu also shared his opinion about these roster changes and pointed out that this is really a big move for G2 Esports, even though there is nobody left from their era.

“This makes for a whole new era for G2 and the legacy the team has carried, there is no trace of previous track record outside of coaching staff,” Pengu mentioned. “I really hope the boys can land on their feet and build something for themselfs. Best of luck.”

G2 Esports is now:

  • Ben “CTZN” McMillan
  • Jake “Virtue” Grannan
  • Jordan “Kayak” Morley
  • Lucas “Hungry” Reich
  • Jonas “Jonka” Kaczmarzyk
