What a weekend it has been for G2 Esports fans! After amazing news that the G2 CS:GO squad cemented their spot at ESL Pro League Season 5: Finals in Dallas and will fight for their share of $1,000,000 prize pool last week, we had one huge challenge for our League of Legends team. As the winners of the EU LCS Spring Split they traveled to Brazil to defend European pride at the 2017 Mid-Season Invitational (MSI) and it wasn’t easy. After days of hard-fought matches, we managed to finish the Group Stage securing the third place and advancing to the Semifinals.

Despite the weak start for shox and kennyS at HTC 2v2 Invitational by PGL with a loss against Space Soldiers, our French duo showed consistency and determination. They not only took the prize of the HTC Vive fun tournament but also step by step eliminated all the opposition. The final battle against North was tough but the G2 Baguettes were unstoppable.
