Overview    


G2 Esports is a European organization, which was officially launched on February 24th, 2014.

History

Seasons 4-5

G2 Esports, formerly known as Gamers 2, was founded by Ocelote and made several attempts throughout 2014 and 2015 to qualify for the LCS. They would also participate in a lot of minor events, finishing 1st at EUW Challenger Series #19 and FACEIT Challenger Invitational 2. They were finally able to qualify for the EU LCS at the 2016 EU LCS Spring Promotion Tournament, defeating SK Gaming (3-2) to qualify.

Season 6

After renaming to G2 Esports, the team entered the EU LCS with high hopes. Finishing the regular season of the 2016 EULCS Spring Split in 1st place with a very impressive 15-3 record, G2 was one of the favorites in the playoffs. In the 2016 EULCS Spring Playoffs, G2 would defeat the former kings of Europe Fnatic (3-1) and then they would take down EU powerhouse Origen (3-1) to win their first EU LCS title in their first split. This would also qualify them for the 2016 Mid-Season Invitational.

At MSI, G2 Esports were one of the favorites but internal issues caused them to massively underperform. Finishing 5th with a 2-8 record, G2 lost Europe's Pool 1 Seed at the 2016 World Championship.

G2 revamped their roster for the 2016 EULCS Summer Split, adding superstar bottom lane Zven and Mithy, as well as adding Expect in the Top Lane after Kikis' departure. In the regular season, G2 went undefeated finishing in 1st place with 10 wins and 8 draws. Entering the 2016 EULCS Summer Playoffs as heavy favorites, G2 defeated Unicorns of Love (3-1) in the Semifinals and then the massively improved Splyce squad (3-1) in the Finals to win their second EU LCS title in a row. This would also qualify them for the 2016 World Championship as Europe's #1 seed.

G2 was then drawn in Group A along with LCK champions ROX Tigers, NA's second seed Counter Logic Gaming and IWCQ winner Albus NoX Luna. The team, however, failed to make it out of the group stage, finishing they Worlds run with a 1-5 standing.

Despite the massive failure the team had at Worlds, the organization still chose to re-sign the entire squad for the 2017 EU LCS Spring Split. The team also added Team SoloMid's former Coach, Weldon Green, as the Assistant Coach.
