The last time we saw the superstars from G2 on the server was in the Grand Final at IEM Katowice ten days ago, where they got run over by FaZe with a 3-0 sweep. A loss, that seems to have caused some anger and motivation within the G2 roster.
Something, the Australians from Looking For Org got to taste in today’s opening match at ESL Pro League Season 15 against Nemanja “huNter” Kovac and the rest of G2. Led by the older Kovac cousin, G2 steamrolled over LFO on Dust2 through a 16-5 smashing.
The competitiveness and close rounds between the two sides that failed to appear on the first map, all came on G2’s map pick of Inferno. What looked like a swift victory ended up being a tough battle for G2, as the Australian underdogs stepped up their game massively and managed to pressure NiKo and co.
However, in the end, the difference between the two teams was too big.
With a marvellous performance by the returned AMANEK, the super-sub secured G2 a 2-0 victory through a stellar 26-11 / 86.5 ADR stat line.
