G2 creates a super-team

G2 has rostered a team with the brightest gems in the bountiful French scene.

G2 Esports has brought Kenny “kennyS” Schrub, Dan “apEX” Madesclaire and Nathan “NBK” Schmitt over from Team EnVyUs to accompany Richard “shox” Papillon and Alexandre “bodyy” Pianaro on their new Counter-Strike: Global Offensive roster. 

Making room for the three new players are Edouard “SmithZz” Dubourdeaux, who will now coach the team, Cédric “RpK” Guipouy and Adil “ScreaM” Benrlitom. 

Niclas “enkay J” Krumhorn will be the head analyst for the team and will assist new coach SmithZz in his tactical duties for this French supersquad. 

In a statement on G2’s website, CEO and founder of the team, Carlos “ocelote” Rodríguez Santiago, said that, “we decided to increase our commitment in our CS:GO roster significantly with the signing of this superteam.” 

This lineup puts together two of the kings in Counter-Strike in one deadly lineup; shox and kennyS. The duo will surely be one of fiercest in the scene now that they are together, with new arrival NBK saying in his statement on the team’s website that the combo “is going to be a deadly one.

The full statements from NBK, shox, the team’s manager and ocelote can be read on the team’s annoucement here.
