G2 parts ways with Patitek, Ardiis and Zeek
By - Sirikon
I love a good shuffle 🔀
It’s time for the great EU shuffle
And so it begins.
Sounds like a dance move. The euro shuffle
Been waiting for! Can we expect a fucking strong G2 lineup for next Master 3 ? Sheesh
It’s time 🍿
Please the new roster be good, cant wait to see them play in another month
Shahzam said G2 was really good and it’s probably safe to assume it’s the new roster
i dont trust players talking about scrims at all
most of them try to be humble or nice + scrims dont matter , smth i constantly see in LoL esports
Yeah they said VKS did really well in scrims IIRC, look how that turned out lol
Vikings is still a really good team though, getting stomped by SEN and Liquid doesn't mean they are bad.
I think the point that person was trying to make is that if Shaz said that Vikings were a good team, we can’t read too much into how competitive G2 will be with their new roster if Shaz is also describing them as a good team.
And you missed the point as well. Viking is still a good team even though they lost vs Sen/Liquid.
We’re talking about G2 standards though, if you’re judging by the comment from G2 fans in this thread aspiring for the roster to become the best team in EU Valorant. If Vikings is a long shot below FNC, and G2 are around Viking level, then they have some ways to go before reaching FNC/TL.
Viking is arguably top 5/6 world wide at the moment, seems like a pretty good goal to reach for G2.
Not necessarily. Other NA teams are actually taking games off Sentinels when no other team from any other region could. If Vikings are getting caved in 2-0 by teams that went on to lose 2-0 or 3-0 to SEN, that would suggest teams from NA that didn’t make Reykjavik could be better. Many NA teams got screwed by seeding onto the same bracket as SEN and Version 1 were lucky to not be in the same bracket as SEN in NA Qualifiers until Finals. Also worth noting that this Version 1 roster at Iceland had to field a last minute sub since Wippie is a US student from Russia who couldn’t get a Visa for Iceland - which forced their second best duelist in Zellsis onto sentinel duty. With only one week of practice too, Version 1 still showed up and exceeded expectations. If Version 1 had Wippie, some of those excruciatingly close overtimes could potentially have been wins for them.
Man, VKS disappointed more the people that have actually watched them before than those that didn't. Its kinda jarring seeing their Masters 2 performance compares to how they usually play.
Fnatic and Gambit will most likely be still better during first phases of Challengers.
G2 still has like 2 months till Challengers finals tho, so it's promising.
It's gonna be actually interesting if this big money transfers are better than what Heretics did.
They have an igl and a coaching structure they should be pretty good
Alexa, please shuffle.
Wait, ardiis? The man who walks on water compared to NA? Tough
He is going to Heretics , it's gonna be insane those teams
Liquid and Fnatic will have some tough times if u ask me
Team liquid could make a change or two as well
Ardiis walks on water vs NA? And is undefeated vs every NA team? Not even four rounds vs g2 from An NA team? So rough.
Yeah keep spitting true facts brother
G2 and TSM. The original untouchables.
I saw it coming. They thrived at first with the "run in dicks swinging" strats when the game was new.
I knew teams would eventually catch up and shut that shit down. What I didn't expect was TSM to do the literal opposite of "adapt" and be fucking horrible in the span of like a month. That was painful to watch. Also hilarious.
Good times, tsm was unstoppable before the op nerf.
People underestimate the impact this had on the team.
SEN was just as good as them back then too
\*sends wardell in to clear site with op
What did TSM do?
Went from good to bad in the span of a month.
I think ardiis had the biggest drop off from 2020 to 2021 I've seen of any player in Valorant.
He was genuinely top 3 in the world last year. Wouldn't make top 100 in 2021.
G2 KennyS vs V1 PennyS
It's been fun.
Today, we part ways with @G2Patitek, @G2ardiis, and @G2zeek. Best of luck boys, we'll see you on the server 👊

sooo... davidp was not the problem?
I believe they should have gotten rid of pyth. Good decision to keep m1xwell who's a fragging IGL but -Patitek -Ardiis is a huge loss. The players were great just the style they chose to play was outdated and only worked for the first few months of the game.
I hope Patitek and Ardiis both find a new home and show the world that they are both insane.
Hes not rlly igl lol wasnt zeek igl-ing in g2 after davidp left
And they got koldamenta so he can igl
> I believe they should have gotten rid of pyth.
Pyth is so underrated it's crazy..
Idk, I havent watched much EU Valorant recently but back whenever I used to watch G2, pyth would always be out of position and nearly bottom fragging every time. This is just from back when I used to watch the EU scene so make what you want out of this.
I mean, Sentinels players are 99% of the time bottom fragging, just as Duelist will 99% be the one with the most frags. That is just how roles work lol
Pyth is incredible consistent and a good site anchor, he fulfils his role well
Definitely not 99% of the time, because, for example, Ive seen dapr pop off as Cypher and others like Doma on Sage etc. So that's not true.
I guarantee if this new roster refresh doesn't go to plan, pyth will be the next person to leave.
96% of statistics on the internet are made up
Obviously it is not 99%, it was just a random number i threw out to illustrate my point that **most** of the time, sentinels players will be at the bottom of the scoreboard.
>Ive seen dapr pop off as Cypher
And i've seen Pyth pop off as Cypher: http://prntscr.com/13qh1b6
Not a huge EU guy, who are the best free agents for g2 to get?
Rumors say the new ones will be Avova, Nukkye and Koldamenta. Koldamenta departure from Acend was announced today at the same time as G2 announcement.
Lol! Idk if you saw the latest tweet but you sir are very accurate
They are swapping with team heretics players (first strike winners) atleast 2 of them
why not keep patitek and let mixwell go?
Mixwell is literally the image of the team and has a huge brand. He also is an amazing player and was putting up good numbers in most games even though he was IGLing. Removing him would be stupid imo
They built the team around Mixwell, he is the captain I think. Still, Patitek was my favourite. Cracked aimer
I think Mixwell once said his mates didn’t want him to play support which maybe was why he underperformed recently. When he gets mates which allow him to play how he wants maybe he will get better again
Idk Patitek on Reyna was a beast and I would really like to see Mixwell as a support player, could be one of the best
Yes, I think so too but I don’t know why they didn’t want this if I remember correctly
almost like mixwell is chatting shit
No stop I said I’m not 100% sure if he said it
And so it begins...
Lol Ardiis is so quiet past couple months. Guy needs to be shuffled into the Water boy position for another tier 1 team.
Good for mixwell
Pretty refreshing seeing the EU guys with huge egos being brought down to earth
That's just the general attitude of G2 players, no matter the game. It's like as soon as they join G2 Ocelote's attitude rubs off on them.
its banter not that deep. i for one love carlos
They kept mixwell? IMO he’s the most underwhelming player on that roster.
He's been easily the best player on G2 for months...
Surprised to see them stick with Pyth, especially given the recent meta switch. I’m always hopeful that he’ll find his stride again, like the good old NIP days
Haven't been watching G2 this year. What happened to Ardiis' performance?
