We are proud to announce that we have renewed the contracts with our Hearthstone stars Thijs “Thijs” Molendijk and Dima “Rdu” Radu. Both of them are an integral part of the G2 Esports Hearthstone roster, therefore we are determined to keep the team together and maintain our dominance in the scene.
Boasting repetitive success, Thijs has been a staple for Hearthstone not only in Europe but the whole world. Constantly praised as one of the most consistent players, Thijs has not only earned the title of European Champion two years in a row, but has been a Hearthstone World Championship contender for the last two years. Outside the circuit, he has made a name for himself, grabbing 1st place in Esports Superstars and The Curse Trials in 2016. “I’m excited to be part of the G2 Family for another year. I’m really thankful that G2 has given me a stable environment to grow over the past year and a half. Since the last year, the organization has been growing immensely into one of the biggest Esport brands in the world. I’m looking forward to the future and what we can achieve together!”- Thijs stated.
As a counterpart to the young Dutch prodigy, our Romanian talent, Rdu has been a pillar of professional play since his victory at Dreamhack back in 2014. The only two-time Dreamhack Champion, Rdu took the HCT 2016 circuit by storm finishing #1 in points. The rising star has also taken home the Insomnia 56 Truesilver trophy and finished top 8 in countless major tournaments. “I am very happy to renew my contract with G2 because they are always supportive and believe in my potential. Another big reason is that there’s a lot of cool people working for G2,”- he says.
We are ecstatic to have both Thijs and Rdu stay with us! The whole team will be participating in Blizzard’s Hearthstone Global Games starting April 11th. Thijs, Rdu, Lifecoach will be representing their own countries, while Lothar will be on the casting desk. Though pit against each other as foes from different regions in this event, G2 is proud to have a tight-knit family of players that cooperate and collaborate.
Individually, you can catch Rdu at Throne of Cards IV during April 8th-9th and Dreamhack Austin on April 28th-30th.
The tournament season is just starting, so you can expect great things from our Hearthstone crew!
