One Day. Two Major Championship Titles. eSports History.
G2 Esports is continuing writing eSports history. The European “samurais” and paysafecard sponsored team can look back to an incredible weekend as they claimed major championship titles in League of Legends in Paris, France for the FORTH TIME IN A ROW – and Counter Strike: Global Offensive at the DreamHack Masters in Malmö, Sweden!
Kings of Europe Claim their Throne: European League Championship Series (EU LCS)
Once again the proclaimed “Kings of Europe” took over the throne of the EU LCS in defeating Misfits Gaming with an historic 3-0 score in the best of five series. For the League of Legends squad with top laner “Expect”, mid laner “Perkz”, jungler “Trick”, ADC “Zven” and support “Mithy” it’s their 4th consecutive EU LCS championships title – a new record in history as no other team could win four times in a row until now. The title not only highlights G2 Esports as best European LoL-team once more but also came with a trophy and a € 80.000 cash prize.
Rising like a Phoenix: DreamHack Masters Champions in Malmö, Sweden
After a short series at ESL One Cologne in July this year, the G2 Esports CS:GO squad took the chance at DreamHack Masters in Malmö to show everyone that they belong to the top. The French team had a dominant run through the Masters tournament, beating French rivals EnvyUs and Immortals in group D, Swedish local matadors Ninjas in Pyjamas in the quarterfinal and current world champions SK Gaming in the semifinal. The strong performance continued with a 2-0 win in the grand final over Danish North (Inferno 16-12, Cobble 16-9). Players “NBK”, kennyS”, “bodyy”, “apex” and “Shox” set a statement and took home the championship title, the trophy as well as a $ 100.000 cash prize.
