G2 continues their win streak in Valorant

While FunPlusPheonix had managed t hold their ground during the group stage, it was G2 who dominated the playoffs. G2 had faced a bump in the road against Team Liquid but they exacted their revenge against Liquid soon after, before moving on to the grand final.

They went up against FunPlusPheonix in the finals, which they won cleanly with their squad of M1xwell, Ardiis, Davidp, Pyth and paTiTek. With this victory, G2 also took home €6,000 in prize money. M1xwel was also part of the team that won the G2 Esports Invitational, one of the first tournaments in the Ignition Series. This means the captain of G2 has won 5 Ignition Series tournaments.

Davidp had gone through some tough times amidst the tournament when his father passed away. After sitting out one match, Davidp returned to the team to help them out.

Team member Pyth even hailed David as a ‘warrior.’

Davidp dedicated the victory to his father and all the people going through tough times.

M1well too called David a hero for his performance.

Talking about M1xwell, the G2 pro delivered a grand performance in the series, raking up a total of 35 kills with Agent Jett. His performance throughout the event was nothing short of brilliant.
