G2 or formerly known as Gamers 2 is a Spanish esports organization founded in 2013. Although the organization has Spanish origins, their CS:GO team has been heavily represented by French and Belgian players and coaches.
In early 2016, Faze Clan acquired the entire roster at that time with names rain, Maikelele and jkaem for a fee up to $700.000. After that, G2 decided to buy the complete Titan squad which at first looked like a smart move. At Esports Championships Series Finals in 2016, did this exact roster went all the way beating the legendary Brazilian team Luminosity in the final, taking home the trophy and $250.000 in price winnings.
G2 had an excellent year in 2017 with several championships where especially the signing of superstar AWP’er kennyS played a huge role. Kenny “kennyS” Schrub who has for years been an unstoppable force, became an immediate impact for the team putting up crazy numbers and ratings and gave G2 this needed X-factor.
