According to a report from 1pv.fr, Audric “JACKZ” Jug has been allowed by G2 Esports to explore his options further into the second half of the competitive season in 2022. The report does follow the current status of Aleksi “Aleksib” Virolainen who also tweeted about his position on the roster who might ponder upon his future within the organization.
Audric joined G2 Esports in the Autumn of 2018 alongside Lucas “Lucky” Chastang and has been the face of the team across a plethora of roster iterations featuring Kenny “kennyS” Schrub and François “AMANEK” Delaunay. With G2, JACKZ helped the team bag many runner-ups finishes, most notably at the PGL Major Stockholm 2021 and IEM: Katowice 2022 despite being the heavyweights.
The announcement comes after G2’s early exit from the group stage of the ongoing IEM Cologne 2022 where they were handed defeat at the hands of the Ninjas in Pyjamas. With JACKZ and Aleksib on board, the lineup never lived up to their expectations which were in scope since the beginning of their competitive tour across several S-tier tournaments.
So far G2 are yet to make an announcement addressing the fate of the above duo although JACKZ told 1pv.fr that he would join HEET if he were to represent a french team.
G2 Esports would need to hunt for their final piece to their puzzle right through the ongoing player break which starts from July 18 till August 14.
With JACKZ and Aleksib set to exit, G2 CSGO would have:
- Nemanja “huNter-” Kovač
- Nikola “NiKo” Kovač
- Ilya “m0NESY” Osipov
- Rémy “XTQZZZ” Quoniam (Head Coach)
- Aleksi “Aleksib” Virolainen (Allowed to explore options)
- Audric “JACKZ” Jug (Allowed to explore options)
