G2 bench kennyS; JaCkz returns to roster

The star AWPer has been benched following an underwhelming run of form and a series of disappointing results.

G2 have placed Kenny "⁠kennyS⁠" Schrub on the bench and brought Audric "⁠JaCkz⁠" Jug back into the main roster, the organization has announced.

The move comes after the team endured a string of underwhelming placings in late 2020 and early 2021, which saw them go out early at three consecutive BLAST events at the brink of the year and most recently miss out on the playoffs at IEM Katowice.

kennyS has struggled for individual form in that time, averaging only a 0.98 rating across the four tournaments G2 has attended since the team decided to keep François "⁠AmaNEk⁠" Delaunay over JaCkz in the main roster following Nikola "⁠NiKo⁠" Kovač's addition.

The French sniper is allowed to explore new opportunities

The star AWPer leaves the active roster after a four-year stint. He was part of the French "superteam" G2 put together in early 2017 by combining two members of their former squad, Richard "⁠shox⁠" Papillon and Alexandre "⁠bodyy⁠" Pianaro, with the Envy core featuring kennyS, Nathan "⁠NBK-⁠" Schmitt, and Dan "⁠apEX⁠" Madesclaire. Since then, the 25-year-old has been the centrepiece of G2 as he was the only one to remain amid several big changes over the next two and a half years.

With kennyS out of the roster, the rest of the team is bound to undergo some key role changes, with NiKo taking up sniping duties. This, according to team coach Damien "⁠maLeK⁠" Marcel, will provide "more flexibility within our game and the current meta."

"Kenny is a pillar within G2 and a legend in the scene," G2 maLeK said. "We all all feel that, though difficult, a new home for him will be a great opportunity to remain at the top. We are excited to have JACKZ return to the team, bringing his flair, creativity and a new balance to the team."

JaCkz returns after a three-month stint on the organization's bench. While on the sidelines, the 28-year-old was seen playing with the mix team DBL PONEY alongside former G2 teammates bodyy and Lucas "⁠Lucky⁠" Chastang in various tournaments, including the ESEA Winter Cash Cups 5 and 6, in which they placed second and first.

G2 will make their first appearance with the new roster on March 13 against NIP in Group B of ESL Pro League Season 13, which also includes Vitality, mousesports, FaZe and ENCE.

With these changes, G2 now have:

France François "⁠AmaNEk⁠" Delaunay
Serbia Nemanja "⁠nexa⁠" Isaković
Bosnia and Herzegovina Nemanja "⁠huNter-⁠" Kovač
Bosnia and Herzegovina Nikola "⁠NiKo⁠" Kovač
France Audric "⁠JaCkz⁠" Jug

France Damien "⁠maLeK⁠" Marcel (coach)

France Kenny "⁠kennyS⁠" Schrub (benched)

Ya, even though JW was also dominate he still had a big difference in playstyle compared to kenny, kenny took wild peaks and even pushed situations you shouldnt, and he was able to do so cus of no MS reduction with awp, sadly the rework fucked him over but he was still doing decent for a lil time afterwards atleast. JW on the other hand never really went bananas, he was just very consistent, was very good at holding angles, Aggressive but also defensive, great player overall.

dude learn to read "before 4 years he wasnt a legend" for example you wouldnt call zywoo a leged in 2019 because of 1 astonishing year, that term is used at a later stage when you have a lot of impact in the scene and definitely zywoo is gonna be a legend like how kenny IS RIGHT NOW

mens legend status doesnt just go away. it has nothing to do with current form
2021-03-04 22:51
He was fine until recently, ratings wise. He had issues at majors, but he's one of the few players that was consistently better on LAN than online. Also, he fucking destroyed people in his prime. If they never nerfed the AWP movement he'd still be a top player, his style just isn't well suited to slow picks or holding angles, because he's always relied on his reaction time. His aim was always hit-or-miss, but when he had more freedom of movement he could miss a shot and reposition without nearly the same risk as now.

The way he played in 2014, 2015, 2017 is enough to call him a legend. It means players who were among the very best in the world for a prolonged period, which he was. Doesn't matter how he has played in the recent years. Holy fuck I never thought I would meet someone who doesn't know what "legend" means.

I awp well with a low sens but in the current meta you need awpers that can push and I'm definitely a slow map control player and control the space my team has made, not a run out second behind the entry and trade awper. And I always drop it in clutch situations. Cant flick around the mousepad enough in a 1vX with it so I see your point.

you compare you to a low sens pro awper lol?
2021-03-05 10:11
1. Good awper in Mouz 2. Good flicking clips with the awp in official matches. 3. Sensitivity is not the point because everyone is different and it’s Niko for gods sake. He’s been on low sens since he started playing the game. 4. He is experienced enough to know how to awp for his team for better results. 5. Who are we to judge a pro player based on his sensitivity and capability to awp when a multi million dollar org backs it up?
2021-03-05 12:53
1 reply
That's not it. I can play at a decent pug level with 1.4 sens too while awping but different sensitivities allow different things in-game and different positions ( and this is not me saying this but actual pros). But this is pro level, you need to be a dedicated awper for awhile. You'd feel much more comfortable playing 2.0 sens with an awp on connector when Ts take mid control and rush out A. It's common sense that lower sens makes you more precise but a bit less "mobile", and I'm not talking about sens feeling fast etc, that's just muscle memory. Niko has always played low sens, he's at 1.35 I believe but I know for sure that he's aware of things he can do or not.

ahahahha i know its a meme but.. is it really at this point? niko always coming into teams and taking roles he shouldnt i mean he's the best "main rifler" in last years top20 and they let him AWP?? doesnt make sense

Yep, he's trying too much to be THE MAN, THE ONLY MAN... He's taking too much space with his personality. At this point no one will ever want to play with him again.

This is bad but real news about NiKo
2021-03-04 22:07
problem is that kennyS is struggling as well so if they wanted to make changes, this is the only option they kinda had

I would say the same about any legendary free agent awper. No bias. They could also try woxic, but he would still have the ping issues he had in C9.
2021-03-05 09:18
The only explanation I can give is because of roles issue with NiKo on the team there were roles issue b/w niko and hnt and jackz was out so they dont have anyone for entry fraggingnow when kennyS is removed the entry fragging and role clash is removed so only 1 guy has to transition to a new role except mixing things between NiKo and hunter

I disagree, he hasn't been his carry self for a long time but he was still playing relatively well, average rating about 1.05 and top 1 or 2 player in the team with Hunter. The past 3 months he's been hit or miss, some great performances some very poor ones......however, his role had massively changed too. How many awpers are dedicated to flashing teammates into banana on inferno everyone round for example?

they're just experimenting with niko to see if the team does well so they don't unnecessarily buy an awper. if he sucks however they will get a proper awper

I mean 90% of the players can aim with an awp. But it is hard to master. Sth people never understand when they write "AWP abuser". You need to know the angles, timing and a fucking high game sense to play it at the top level. Sth I don't expect from Niko. Tabsen for example tried also AWP. And he is a smart player and he had the aim but his timings and calmness for a good awp player wasn't there. Also when I compare Nikos A dust 2 AWP play with s1mple on the same spot there is an ocean of sweat and hard work between them...

LOL, this is FaZe all over again with NiKo. Benched the main AWPer. NiKo takes the role and doesn't like it. Then, someone else will do it (most likely Amanek). Then, the team keeps struggling with this AWPer rotation until probably NiKo takes over the IGL role LOL. BTW, giving NiKo the AWP is a mistake. He is an amazing rifler.

(This is what I was writing before kennyS update, from * to *) *I'll talk about: 1) kennyS 2) Balkan team 3) Amanek 4) The update 1) kennyS: Q: Why is he still on the team? Many people point to kennyS and his underperformance as part of the problem, and another group of people respond by saying that it's due to his mindset, LAN, motivation... Regardless of this, people always demand quick results and I advocate for allowing them time, but how much? How many opportunities is the max? If the problem is LAN, why do people demand better results from him if LANs will take time to come back? A 1: Time. A 2: I understand kennyS is staying because he's a big part of the org, and they value him (emotionally) more than many of the results which is understandable, but it can lead to complications from a competitive standpoint. I hope kennyS leaves, but "kicking" him could be bad for their image (not like they care but still there's a relantionship issue maybe) if not by mutual agreement, that's why I say maybe kennyS should leave by his own, the thing is that's very unlikely since he said he's hungry to compete in streams. Maybe go full Balkan or keep it EU upgrading some players? 2) Balkan team: In short, there are not enough players to replace -kennyS and -amanek. For this to happen, it'd not only be necessary to change the players, but the management as well. With this in mind, only two roles are filled: - Kassad as coach - madenn as a replacement for kennyS However, they'd still need a 5th for amanek and I'm afraid there are not enough Balkan players to replace this role. This option is invalidated, not to mention that the manager Jérome knows the needs of each member, so they would have to communicate in English with him, like Nexa with his girlfriend etc... I think coaching staff and Amanek are vestiges from that G2 French lineup that is now other team's core. 3) "-amanek" if they had to make a change, the most optimal would be either -kennyS or -amanek With kennyS we know the reasons. If the emotional (or "branding") reasons overlap the competitive ones and they decide to stay with kennyS for a while, getting rid of amanek would be the most optimal move with the least impact, because they don't lose anything by doing that. These movements are gradual, because you have to know how to execute the movements. NiKo makes like 15-20k viewers on Twitch avg. He grants a bigger value than amanek does. By removing NiKo, they're getting rid of many important things and potentially huNter + Nexa. -NiKo will only happen after milking him and he hasn't been in the team for so long, on the other hand amanek has had his time. That'd be the "best" hypothetical scenario (if they don't remove kennyS).* 4) The update Couple days ago there was this thread saying "Kenny leaving G2 would be good for both parties." and I said "Sad but I agree, he's a loveable guy but changes are needed. The issue is not getting a new AWP, the issue is how do you say goodbye to such a legend." In my comments I've always emphasized the market value that kennyS grants and all the fans he has, so the courage to make this decision, no matter how shocking it may be and all the "haters" you'd get, must be appreciated in my humble opinion. The day Jackz was benched it was also a very difficult decision. The reason for this is that amanek and Jackz knew that one of them was going to leave if they didn't do their best, therefore both players tried their best. In the end, amanek's efforts were rewarded over Jackz's, but this does not detract from the great work he did. In the case of kennyS... he's had many opportunities without any doubt, some would argue he's had more opportunities that he should've had, but his work ethic doesn't seem to it doesn't seem to it justice... TL;DR: G2 made the best decision.

What if Madden was to replace AmaneK and they get a Bulgarian AWP? Right now EG is looking for 5th and maybe they can so some trades... like KennyS and AmaneK for Cerq and send JackZ to get Madden... just an idea. Not sure how the roles will be done, most likely: Niko Star Rifler nexa IGL Hunter lurk Madden entry/support Cerq AWP

2021-03-04 21:00
G2 has not been delivering the expected results, and they look like they can't figure out why. Sometimes i wonder if Niko's integration to the team was benefitial, it has brought a lot of movement and changes. But i want to discuss how the team could work from now on. Niko can definately awp and amanek is quite skillful with the big green as well, we've seen him as the secondary awper a fair amount of times. Kenny's been struggling hard so this was pretty expected, still it hurts. I hope Jackz comes back strong, this team needs good results badly. #G2ARMY

Niko can awp?? Not really to play dust 2 A spot doesn't mean you can play awp. Especially on maps like Nuke or Train. There you can see a difference between a rifle that plays awp or a real awp player.
2021-03-04 21:44
The team got worse ever since G2 bought Niko^^ This isn't a suprise. It's just people, pros included, thinking bringing a better individual makes your team better instantly without the teamplay aspect.
2021-03-05 06:20
Hope kenny can regain his form. Next up: g2 squad to lose faith in nexas calling - Niko to take over igl duties (even though he reportedly "doesnt want to") in the short-term while they search for an igl for the next two years.

come on just get rid of these frenchies and make a serbian speaking team, that's the only way you can get good, you already have an experienced core. surely there are two serbian people who can aim at the head and shoot

Any player with a half decent aim can awp. That’s why when Dupreehtook up awping he was immediately wrecking havoc with it. Hell even MSL or can awp. Awping is by far the easiest thing in csgo no doubt

As long as NiKo doesn't main AWP and they split the role Liquid-style between him and AmaNEk, it has the potential to be a good move. Of course, splitting the AWP never really worked out for Liquid once they fell out of their godlike form.

It is sad to hear this but i may have had something like this in mind. Kenny played ass on blast and yes he did had some moments but he was very inconsistant and missing a lot of important shots. I remember when they played against astralis i think he had 4 kills in like 20 or somethin rounds. On the other side i didnt expect niko to get the awp considering amanek was very consistant with it. But hey we will see how this goes and i hope Kenny will get better and maybe get brought back to the team. #G2ARMY

2021-03-04 23:05
Expected, but imo NiKo is too static as an AWPer. They could have tried to replace Kenny with Junior or Sh1ro, surely Furia or Gambit can't offer as much as G2. Poizon would also be a good replacement, but he might be too expensive.

G2 is one of the biggest teams. Their budget is a lot bigger than Gambit for sure, I don't know much about the org behind Furia, so can't say much about that, but it seems pretty minor too. There's more money in G2 than in all of CIS. Complexity is rolling too much though, NA teams are working with even higher amounts.

G2 has to sign Maka. It's literally the perfect time. Maka is a sick awper and has proved it against the top tier teams. Maka is one of the best awpers in the t2 scene and the only reason he isn't on either g2 or Vitality already is because well, Zywoo has to be on the awp obviously, and G2 has not been willing to let go of Kenny. Now this happens, and this has to be the time. An aggresive, precise, and overall great awper.

KennyS has been playing pretty shitty for a long time, even before NiKo joined, so the move makes sense. What doesnt is that this new roster doesnt have a primary AWP so either there are more moves coming or this move is not very smart.

why the fuck would you waste NiKo on the AWP? If they don't want to have a main AWP they should let Amanek do it, but NiKo? This will not go well, i guess they already have someone in mind and this is just for now. Time for Kenny to take a break, get his mental state in order and come back stronger because he has been but a shadow of himself for the last 9 months.
2021-03-05 01:09
they need a dry entry man jackz actually wasn't bad in that role but this for sure is just a temorary solution to g2's main awp problem

2021-03-05 01:21
niko already kicking players, the next thing will be niko igl then changing the team again :D
2021-03-05 01:35
Wherever Niko goes all other stars leaving or want to leave Many of us here were joking about it when Niko went to the team but it seems wasnt just a joke or two.
2021-03-05 01:37
Hard move cuz kennys is big name in Cs but right move.

I kinda was expecting that... Hope Kenny gets back stronger than before, gl for such a legend. And wb Jackz :D
2021-03-05 01:55
go to EXTREMUM -gratis +KennyS
2021-03-05 01:59
Took way too long, its time to just kick him completely. For all Kenny fans, this is the pretty much the end of his career in any high level team.
2021-03-05 02:10
Kinda expecting -jackZ +cooper or some weird shit like that. I doubt they're going to look for CIS talent to fill the gap, and there isn't much in terms of local talent that I'm aware of. So then the only option left would be to scalp some NA team, with osee/ cooper being the only standout awpers left. I doubt it'd be a perfect solution but what else are they going to do? Niko just ain't it chief lol

Yeah, that's def a name that didn't come to mind. He's not proven at the top level but I guess giving anyone other than kenny a shot is a good idea atm, as sad as that is to say
2021-03-05 03:11
Tbh EG is a sinking ship atm so maybe +cerq. Would be nice if he can reach his prime with G2 again

FINALLY. SO HAPPY FOR KENNYS, NOW bot kennys will turn to god kennys in a new team
2021-03-05 02:44
i see a lot of experts here talking how garbage he was last months a couple of things: since niko arrive at g2 their game model has changed completely. They give all the resorces/entries/picks/trades to niko. I'm not saying that is bad, but they completely play around and to the rifler of niko. They dont play anymore around the awp (as many teams do, like navi). The last game and the only game they played to the awp of kenny, he carried g2 against EG on dust2. he had freedom of movement and risked picks that with the arrive of niko he stopped doing. He is in a bad form, everyone can see that. But he is with no confidence of his teammates and nexa dont let the game pass throw him. If the game dont pass by you, how can you have impact? Its sad but is the best to g2 and kennyS This resolve the problem of kennyS but i assure you that in two or three months we will have the meme "ThE ProBLeM wAS KENnyS". g2 with this approach will continue without winning.
2021-03-05 02:43
kennyS to eg?
2021-03-05 02:44

I've just never seen him AWP much. It will be interesting at least. The twitter post says he will be hybrid awping.
2021-03-05 03:27
- One of the best riflers - Average or under average IGL - Not a dedicated awper
2021-03-05 06:36
"We all all feel that, though difficult, a new home for him will be a great opportunity to remain at the top." is this a sign that he will be benched until he gets a new org?

2021-03-05 03:54
NiKo AWP? I know he's not a bad awper by any means, but he's by FAR a stronger awper than rifiler. The benefit of JacKz>KennyS is completely negated by taking NiKo off rifiling duties

weird, i dont think niko should awp, plus Jackz will be a temporary fix unless his english is better, which i really doubt. so they will need a new support/rifler

Kenny is an emotional player, and Jackz is one of his best friends. If they get in the same team, they can destroy teams. It was already shown earlier in 2020, how well G2 was going, all their problems arose once Jackz got booted. I'm kind of seeing a pattern here. Plus, who's going to Awp?
