JACKZ free to explore options outside of G2 - Report
The rifler may be on the outs from the lineup as they look to make changes in the off-season.
According to a report from 1pv.fr, Audric "JACKZ" Jug has been allowed to explore options outside of G2, implying he may not be a part of their plans after the tournament break comes to an end. The Frenchman is currently the longest-standing member of the G2 lineup, having been a part of various rosters for over three and a half years.
JACKZ's tenure on G2 spans back to the organization's French lineup that included Richard "shox" Papillon and Kenny "kennyS" Schrub, with the 26-year-old remaining on the team as they transitioned to various iterations of international rosters over the following years.
Although the team have managed a number of notable grand final appearances with him, they have been unable to break through the final barrier and take home a big event title, with the additions of Ilya "m0NESY" Osipov and Aleksi "Aleksib" Virolainen at the start of the year also proving unsuccessful in changing that pattern.
Often cited by other members of the team as a selfless player whose personality plays a large part in contributing to a positive team atmosphere, JACKZ possibly being on the outs would mark a shift in G2's plans for the remainder of the year.
The report follows in the wake of an announcement from Aleksib, who had also announced on Twitter shortly before the end of IEM Cologne that he had been allowed to explore options elsewhere. However, HLTV.org understands that Aleksib isn't officially benched on G2 as of yet, leaving the future of the team uncertain as they evaluate possible changes during the break.
Right now, G2 have the following players on their books:
