G2.Kinguin finishes 5th-6th at Global eSports Cup

After finishing second in Group B with a convincing 2-0 victory over Cloud9, our team is now ready to take on another North American side, CLG, for a spot in the semi-finals. Follow all the action at 14:00 CET.

Our new CS:GO team is currently in Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania, for the offline finals of the Global eSports Cup, hosted by Game Show. Eight teams from all over the world will duke it out for the bulk of a $200,000 prize pool in this exciting tournament, which will kick off with a double-elimination group stage, followed by the single-elimination playoffs.

We have been placed into Group B, alongside Cloud9, Astralis and Method, with our first match pitting us against the North Americans, who picked up 18-year-old Jake “Stewie2k” Yip at the start of the year.


NiaK believes the team will acquit itself well

Shortly before the team’s departure to Vilnius, we caught up with the manager, Jérôme”NiaK” Sudries, who gave us the following statement:

“I must say we are very excited to start playing under G2’s colors.  The preparation for this tournament was fine despite the context, and the boys worked hard in January. We still have some things to fix, but, on the other hand, we have some big cards up our sleeve, and I’m pretty sure we can achieve something great at this point. Cloud9 did not cross the Atlantic to bow in their first match, we expect a close game facing a revamped team that we don’t know anything about at the moment. Let’s just give our best! #G2win!”
