According to a report from, G2 Esports have got into extensive talks with Team Vitality over the transfer of their Counter Strike head coach, Rémy “XTQZZZ” Quoniam alongside Ilya “m0NESY” Osipov of Natus Vincere while they also seem to have getting themselves a new in-game leader to lead the next iteration of the roster.

They had reportedly opened up negotiations in early December with OG CS:GO which will see Aleksi “Aleksib” Virolainen move to his new home at G2 Esports.

The post-major shenanigans seem to have already begun in the faces of Vitality and Astralis who have entered negotiations to re-shuffle their rosters post their exit from the recently concluded PGL Major Stockholm.

As previously reported by TalkEsport, the trio of Peter “⁠dupreeh⁠” Rasmussen, Emil “⁠Magisk⁠” Reif, and Danny “⁠zonic⁠” Sørensen will join the ranks of Vitality for the forthcoming 2022 pro circuit and are expected to replace Richard “⁠shox⁠” Papillon, Jayson “⁠Kyojin⁠” Nguyen Van and head coach Rémy “⁠XTQZZZ⁠” Quoniam on the french side’s active CSGO division.

After parting ways with Damien “⁠maLeK⁠” Marcel around in the middle of November, we might soon see some changes transitioning within the G2 Esports squad who are to revamp with a new sniper and an In-game leader followed by the recent report, which suggests XTQZZZ to take over the reigns as the head coach for 2022.

Most notably among the rumored reports is m0NESY who was brought aboard by Natus Vincere in January 2020 as a part of their academy roster while being the youngest person on the roster back then.

Ever since the former has taken everyone by storm and has proved to be a true contender for future opportunities. Na’Vi recently decided to accept offers for the 16-year-old sniper and has already attracted interest from G2 Esports. 

In addition, Aleksib from OG Counter Strike has also been approached by G2 Esports for their IGL Spot and as reported, the Dota 2 giants won’t be giving up on their leader this easily. Under Aleksib, OG have secured a plethora of top table finishes but have never won a championship. 

If the above reports see the light, G2 Esports will have:

Nemanja “⁠huNter-⁠” Kovač

Nikola “⁠NiKo⁠” Kovač

Audric “⁠JaCkz⁠” Jug

Ilya “⁠m0NESY⁠” Osipov

Aleksi “⁠Aleksib⁠” Virolainen

Rémy “⁠XTQZZZ⁠” Quoniam (Head coach)
