G2 Introduces R6 Super Team
We’re proud to welcome two new pros to G2’s Rainbow Six Siege team: Ben ‘CTZN’ McMillan and Jake ‘Virtue’ Grannan.
Following our victory at the 2019 Six Invitational, we had high hopes and expectations for the rest of the year that were not met, so now our mission is to bring together the best talent across borders and cultures to build a team that can’t be rivaled. We will dominate once again and to achieve this ambitious goal we’ve brought on two proactive and assertive players into the fold.
British rising star CTZN joins us from Natus Vincere where he finished first in his first-ever Pro League season and went on to win the Pro League Season 10 finals in Japan while breaking the kill record. He’ll be bringing his aimgod skills to add on to the already strong fragging potential of G2.
From Australia, we are bringing the mature, stable and incredibly flexible player - Virtue, who joins us from FNATIC. He is a force to be reckoned with and was the top-rated player at SI 2019 and helped bring the FNATIC lineup to the international stage as major competitors. His clutch plays will bring a fresh dynamic to the G2 lineup.
CTZN has this to say about joining G2:
“Joining G2 is a dream come true because ever since I started playing this game I have watched them from the beginning grow into what they are now. My goals and aspirations are to win every tournament that’s available in Rainbow 6 and to recreate the G2 era again with this team. My personal goal is to keep consistency throughout the year and make sure to do my job to the highest level possible.”
Virtue has this to say about joining G2:
“Having the chance to play for such a decorated team and org is a dream that I have been non-stop working for and now that it has happened, I won't give up until the team is on top again. Create a new era, become the best again and stay the best for many years to come.”
With two new additions to the G2 R6 roster, our captain and long time leader Fabian ‘Fabian’ Hällsten will be stepping down from the starting roster. This decision was reached mutually as both Fabian and G2 felt in need of something new and agreed that the overall team’s performance did not live up to the high standards of both the club and himself.
Here’s what Fabian had to say about the change:
“I felt that it was time for me to move on. During our recent performances, the group atmosphere wasn’t great, so I asked to be traded. I love my G2 teammates as friends but I don’t think we should continue playing together at this point. We’re currently working with G2 on finding me a new home. The option I was hoping for during this transfer period, unfortunately, didn't work out, so I'm looking for other great opportunities for me out there, preferably in the EU but possibly other regions if the opportunity is spicy.”
In addition to the aforementioned change we have officially parted ways with Pascal ‘Cryn’ Alouane who brought a positive attitude and perseverance to G2, but in the end, didn’t pan out in our lineup. Ferenc ‘SirBoss’ Mérész who joined us on loan until the end of the 2020 Six Invitational, will no longer be competing with us and will pursue other opportunities outside of G2.
Pending visa finalizations, the entire roster will be relocating to Berlin in the near future to be able to practice cohesively. With top fraggers across the board, we’re sure that we’ll bring a lot of firepower to every match and tournament we’re part of this year!
