Ex6TenZ, SmithZz to be replaced in G2 - Report
The reported move would break up the new iteration of G2 formed by Richard "shox" Papillon back in June, where Ex6TenZ and SmithZz were brought in as free agents, with the former having been benched in LDLC in February and the latter stepping down from coaching G2.
Coming into the team would be the two 3DMAX players Lucky and JaCkz, who are significantly younger and less experienced, but who posses the firepower G2 could need at a time where the squad has continually failed to impress, going out in groups at ESL One New York and cs_summit 3 and sitting at the bottom of the table in the European part of ECS Season 6.
Lucky, a 20-year-old hybrid player, could prove especially valuable to G2 as he has impressed recently, reaching the second-highest rating among players at the Europe Minor in July with 1.20 over six maps and holding a 1.18 rating in online matches during the past 3 months. JaCkz, who is slightly older at 26, was brought on the 3DMAX roster in March as a rifler after being a part of EnVyUs Academy until the organisation released their CS:GO rosters in June.
vpesports.com also reported that Kenny "kennyS" Schrub is close to signing an extension with the team, his future in the team originally being reported as uncertain because the two parties were 'far apart' in early October when the organisation prolonged its deals with the rest of the squad until 2020.
The vpesports.com report did not mention who will be the in-game leader after Ex6TenZ' departure, but it is safe to assume the calling duties will be taken over by shox, who has been G2's in-game leader before before and also held some mid-round calling roles in the current iteration of the team.
Should the reported roster move happen, G2 will have the following roster:
Damien "maLeK" Marcel (coach)
