G2 Esports is a Spain-based multi-gaming organization, currently competing in League of Legends' EU LCS. They were formerly known as Gamers2 before rebranding to the current name in 2016. They currently compete under the name G2 Kinguin in representation of their sponsor Kinguin.
G2 Esports rebranded from the name Gamers2 in October 2015, after qualifying for the EU LCS. In addition to rebranding, the team changed several positions in their roster: from Smittyj, Kikis, PerkZ, Jesse, and Hybrid as their qualifying roster, G2 Esports moved Kikis to top lane and add Korean players Trick and Emperor. Their roster quickly rose to prominence and recognition in the LCS, consistently tied for first place after each week, sometimes with H2k and sometimes also with Vitality, until the end of the split when they held first place with sole possession. With a quarterfinal bye, the playoffs also saw them strong, as they defeated both Fnatic and Origen 3-1 to win the season and secure an invitation to the Mid-Season Invitational. Read more...
