We are excited to announce that Thijs ‘Thijs’ Molendijk has extended his commitment to G2 Esports and has signed a new long-term contract with our club. As one of Hearthstone’s most prolific and loved players, Thijs has been a fantastic representative for both the team and the game and we couldn’t be happier to continue working with him.
Upon bursting onto the professional scene in 2014, Thijs took the game by storm, winning back to back European Championships in 2015 and 2016. While focusing his attention on his stream and fans in recent times, he still maintains his competitive fire, regularly achieving top ladder finishes and having qualified for the Europe Season 2 Playoffs.
“I’m very excited to continue my time in G2 representing the Hearthstone squad together with my teammates, Rdu and Neirea,” said Thijs. “I’ve been a part of the team since 2015 and G2 has always provided me with a stable environment and supported me in my direction as a competitive player and streamer so I could perform to my best. I have grown a lot as a player over the 3 years in G2 and am very thankful to the hard work of the team giving me that opportunity. I’m very excited for our future and to win more titles together. My goals for this year are to win my 3rd EU Championship and to qualify for the World Championship, while also educating and entertaining my viewers daily on Twitch.”
G2 Esports CEO Carlos ‘ocelote’ Rodriguez added:
“Thijs brings a special passion and energy to both his play and streams, which is something we, his fans, and the Hearthstone community as a whole absolutely love about him. We are delighted that we have shared in his journey thus far and are ecstatic that we can continue to do so. At G2, we are always eager to work with players that can blend that fighter’s mentality with the entertainer’s energy – Thijs takes that one step further as the perfect mix of a competitive player, charming entertainer, and passionate teacher. We look forward to supporting him over the coming years.”
