Meet our G2.Vodafone CS:GO squad
Our new G2.Vodafone CS:GO squad embodies passion for the game and experience. We are excited to have welcomed EasTor, Enanoks, AEROZ, Peelk and NMT to our ranks. All of them are great players and ambitious personalities who will work hard to dominate Spain and beyond.
Four out of five our G2.Vodafone CS:GO members have been playing together for a while and have already showed strong performances. In December 2016 EasTor, Enanoks, AEROZ and Peelk lifted the champion trophy of the GAMERGY LVP División de Honor. This accomplishment has a special significance within the community as the title defines the best CS:GO team in Spain. NMT’s name is also well-known around the Spanish CS:GO scene, and we believe that his good aim, great map knowledge and self-confidence will prove to be valuable assets for the team.
“Our goal right now is to be one of the best teams in Spain and we would like to reach a good level in Europe as well. We are convinced that this will be the result of our consistency working as a team and, above all, the good atmosphere that we have,” – EasTor says.
