Gen.G in talks with Liazz - Report
The team will need to finailse their roster in short order as Flashpoint 2 is slated to kick off in less than three weeks' time.
Gen.G have set their sights on Jay "Liazz" Tregillgas, according to a report from DBLTAP. The 23-year-old Australian would fill one of the two roster spots left vacant following the departures of Damian "daps" Steele and Sam "s0m" Oh to VALORANT.
Since joining 100 Thieves in November 2019, Liazz has averaged a 1.04 rating, notably playing a different role from his time on previous rosters due to an overlap in roles with Justin "jks" Savage, who is reportedly bound for Complexity.
During his time with 100 Thieves and Renegades, Liazz helped the team achieve their best results at a Major, including a quarter-final run at IEM Katowice 2019 and a semi-final appearance at the following Major, hosted by StarLadder in Berlin. Last year, 100 Thieves also reached their first-ever Big Event grand final at IEM Beijing, an event at which Liazz averaged a 1.16 rating against the likes of ENCE, Vitality, and Astralis.
The reported move would leave Sean "Gratisfaction" Kaiwai and Aaron "AZR" Ward as the only remaining players from 100 Thieves without a new team. According to the report, Gen.G are also in discussions with another player to finalise their five-man lineup, a roster that they need to complete post-haste with the start of Flashpoint 2 drawing near on November 9.
Should the move come to fruition, Gen.G's roster would consist of:
Chris "Elmapuddy" Tebbit (coach)
