LoL team G2 Esports began life in Madrid 2014 when former SK Gaming mid-laner Carlos “ocelote” Rodriguez assembled an esports team under the name Gamers2. In October 2015 they changed the name to G2 Esports.
Currently the number 1 team in Europe and 3rd in the world standings, G2 Esports team competes in the League of Legends Championship Series Europe. The LOL team is based at the Am Studio 20D house in Adlershof, Berlin.
In 2017, G2 Esports have started as a team with a real point to prove. All five team members of the final 2016 roster return with their trademark arrogant swagger befitting their continued #1 in Europe ranking. G2’s rise to glory is just getting started.
G2 Esports is a huge team in League Of Legends, boasting 750,000+ Facebook fans, 200,000+ Twitter followers and player streams on Reddit, Twitch and other platforms reaching over 21 million fans.
Branding & Sponsorship
G2 Esports logo is a classic; a samurai helmet with a highly stylised G2 forming the mask. Current G2 Esports sponsors include eNgage, Boomeo, KINGUIN, vodafone, NEEDforSEAT, HYPERX, paysafecard,
Over at their online store emblazoned with the headline “Dress like the best or get naked like the rest” you can buy your team jersey in stylish black and grey. And of course, you can find team wallpaper for your screens.
Team Roles, Expertise, Divisions
Daehan “Expect” Ki acts as top laner, and fits in perfectly with G2 Esport’s aggressive playing style. Known for absorbing everything other teams throw at him, he frees up mid laner PerkZ and AD Carry Zven. Kang-yun “Trick” Kim is Jungler of G2 and his 2016 EU LCS MVP award shows you just how valuable he is. Jesper “Zven” Svenningsen is the AD Carry, with an aggressive style and excellent mechanical prowess in skill shots.
Luka “PerkZ” Perković joined G2 after an impressive stint with French team Millenium. The Croatian is one of the finest mid laners in Europe, bringing confidence and maybe arrogance to some incredible destructive play. Alfonso “mithy” Aguirre Rodriguez is surely one of the finest Support players in Europe. Previously paired with Zven in the bot lane with Origen, they’re currently busy doing it all over again for G2.
Roster & Achievements
The current roster of team G2 Esports LOL is Expect, Trick, PerkZ, Zven and Mithy.
G2’s LoL team won the 2016 Spring and 2016 Summer EU LCS along with victories at the Spring and Summer playoffs that earnt them a tidy $100,000. Their reward of the Europe slot in the prestigious 2016 Mid-Season Invitational tournament in Shanghai saw the team massively under-perform, with talk of team fallouts and a widely reported pre tournament vacation. They lost 8 of 10 matches and cost the EU LCS league its 1st seed for the 2016 World Championship later that year. After failing to make it out of groups at MSI 2016, G2 are out for blood in 2017.
