Towards the end of the season, Hybrid joined LowLandLions.White.
With LLL.White, Hybrid qualified for the EUCS Spring Season via the EUCS Spring Qualifier after the team beat Different Dimension in their bracket final. The Spring Season was successful for the team, finishing in 2nd place. At this point, the team left the LowLandLions organization. In the Spring Playoffs, they beat Gamers2 before joining Copenhagen Wolves to form Copenhagen Wolves Academy. They went on to lose the final to Origen, meaning they would play in the EU LCS Summer Promotion. In the Summer Promotion, Hybrid and the team were beaten by Team ROCCAT. Soon after, Copenhagen Wolves Academy disbanded.
Hybrid joined Gamers2 in July, and played the majority of the EUCS Season with them, helping them place third in the playoffs and then defeat SK Gaming in the LCS Promotion Tournament. They also participated in PGL Legends of the Rift Season 1. Partway through the Legends of the Rift tournament, Gamers2 rebranded to G2 Esports and ultimately placed third.
G2 Esports quickly rose to prominence and recognition in the LCS, consistently tied for first place after each week, sometimes with H2k and sometimes also with Vitality, until the end of the split when they held first place with sole possession. With a quarterfinal bye, the playoffs also saw them strong, as they defeated both Fnatic and Origen 3-1 to win the season and secure an invitation to the Mid-Season Invitational.
Going into MSI, G2 Esports were seen as a favorite not to win, but to come in second place to the Korean representatives SK Telecom T1. However, the team lost their first four games of the round robin and ultimately finished in fifth place, ahead of only SuperMassive eSports, and out of playoff contention - importantly, this placement meant that Europe would forfeit their Pool 1 seed at Worlds. In a statement published partway through the second day of play, G2 stated that their players had taken vacation time after a "rigorous Spring Split." AD carry Emperor later stated that there had been an internal conflict within the team one day prior to the start of the event.
