Team in Profile: G2 Esports

As a team here at APGNation’s eSports division we always love the off season with all it’s roster changes and excitement, sometimes even more so than the season itself, but we also know it can be hard to keep track of who’s going where and who everyone is. That’s why we’ve been working hard to bring you team profiles that can help you stay up to date and in the know. In this profile, Will Whittingham takes a look at reigning European champions, G2 Esports.

 

Kikis

Mateusz ‘Kikis’ Szkudlarek has had mixed reviews since moving to G2 Esports from Unicorns of Love. The ex-jungler has found himself as a veteran player on the top rated team in Europe while sometimes seeming inconsistent and liable to error (especially highlighted at MSI). While there is no doubting that Kikis is an active player there are many claims that we are yet to see the best out of him since his move. Only time will tell if Kikis will improve to the levels his team has reached or if he will remain a background player.

Trick

Kang-yoon ‘Trick’ Kim has been one of the great finds for Europe this split, coming in from CJ Entus at the beginning of the 2016 Spring Split. An aggressive and controlling jungler, Trick commanded respect and helped to propel G2 Esports to the number one spot in Europe. With a dominant team around him, Trick could have faded into the background but was able to step up and lead the team with impressive performances and excellent mechanical skill.

 

PerkZ

Luka ‘PerkZ’ Perkovic has come as one of the great surprises this split after joining up with G2 Esports from Millenium. PerkZ helped the team qualify for the LCS and has since looked adept and confident in the mid-laner role. Tackling the best Europe has to offer has left PerkZ as a contender for the best mid-laner in Europe and his eyes will surely be turning to the world stage to see what challenges he can overcome next.

 

Zven

Jesper ‘Zven’ Svenningsen was one of the big new stories when he moved from Origen to G2 Esports after the 2016 Spring Split. The highly talented marksman always looked sharp at Origen but the teams failure to achieve the number one spot in Europe tempted Zven elsewhere, and G2 Esports was just the team needed to push his career forward. Joining his support Mithy at his new team will undoubtedly help Zven to settle quickly, but replacing the South Korean star Emperor will likely prove to be a tough task for the superstar and the pressure will be on.

Mithy

Alfonso ‘Mithy’ Aguirre Rodriguez made headlines by moving to G2 Esports from Origen alongside Zven. While a very talented support Mithy has always been in the shadow of Zven in the duo lane but has proved he is an important part of the partnership. Now he is in the top team in the region and looking to cement another spot for himself and his squad at the end of season world championship.

Hey there guys! I’m Phil and I’m a 19 year old from the lovely UK. I’ve always loved video games and can remember the first time I played Age of Empires on my mum’s laptop. This passion for gaming grew as I grew and went into overdrive when I found myself with money I could spend and my own computer and consoles. While you’ll mostly find me on the PC, either being shouted at in online games or shouting at the screen on Steam, I also have a soft spot for my Xbox One. My favorite games of all time include Crusaders Kings 2 and Thomas Was Alone.When you can find me away from gaming it was almost certainly not by choice. I’m currently still a student International Relations and Political Science. While away from keyboard I also enjoy playing football (or soccer if you prefer) and recording a podcast with some of my friends who should know better.I love keeping up to date with all the latest gaming news and I hope I can help you to do the same.I’ll see you out there!

Have your say!
