These rosters have renewed their commitment to G2 for at least two years and further, according to the post on the official website. This is of course a very big moment for the company. CEO of G2, Carlos ‘ocelote’ Rodriguez, said,

“We feel an incredible sense of pride each time partners, players, and fans decide to stick with us through the years… Renewing their agreements with us underlines how great of a relationship we have with them and it certainly gives us that same feeling of pride. We hope to continue to make our players, partners, and fans happy throughout the years. Keep sticking with us, as we’ll keep delivering. Much love.”

G2 is trying to set esports benchmark with its rosters

The fact that all the members of all the leading rosters signed back into the company says a lot about the promising position G2 has to offer. The rosters had achieved perfection with their lineup and they are back at it. The company has marvelously shown this at the League of Legends European Championship(LEC). G2 was the only organization that had not made any off-season roster changes. With the World Championship in their crosshair right now, the company believes that their unchanged LoL roster, which has won the LEC thrice, is all the ammo that they need.

Those who follow Rocket League know the utter domination of the North American Rocket League Grand Finals by the G2 roster this Spring. Right now, the team is geared up for the RLCS X circuit, beginning this August, and ultimately the RL World Championship in 2021.

Reed ‘Chicago’ Rilen, member of the G2 RL roster, said,

“We are super excited to be continuing our journey with G2 and see what the new RLCS season has in store for the future of Rocket League… in the next couple weeks the team is heading back to the house to fully restart the grind and regain our spot as one of the best.”

If you remember, they came second in the last World Championship. Will they take it home this time?

The former Rainbow Six roster has been delivering big hits all throughout. Their most recent exploit was on the European Pro League Season 11 leaderboard, where they stood second. However, the R6 roster has had an addition earlier this year. Ben ‘CTZN’ McMillan and Jake ‘Virtue’ Grannan have come aboard the R6 roster. The capabilities of this roster are not field-tested yet, but esports organization is really hopeful with them. The current lineup of the roster is- Pengu (C), Kantoraketti, UUNO, CTZN, and Virtue. The team is gearing up for the European League and has its aim fixed on the World title.

The triple roster renewal might be the key to immense upcoming success

While the RL and LoL rosters have already shown the world they mean business, the same cannot be said about the newly formed R6 roster. But G2 has total faith in the current lineup as they have their crosshair locked on the World Championship. The players have already grown comfortable playing with each other and might even stay over for the long term.

The esports organization has managed to create a balanced ecosystem with immense potential to succeed. Given the facts, it is safe to assume that this move will prove beneficial in the long run. And we are most excited to find that out!
