Alexandre “bodyy” Pianaro is all set to complete the composition of Richard “shox” Papillon and Kévin “Ex6TenZ” Droolans. However, according to a report by Flickshot.fr Negotiations on signing contracts between G2 Esports and the roster are continuing. According to the portal, the fifth player of the team could be Nathan NBK Schmitt, but some of the team’s players do not wish to play with him.
Earlier Flickshot.fr reported that the management of G2 Esports will give up the current lineup in favor of Papillon. Besides shox and Ex6TenZ team will include Edouard “SmithZz” Dubourdeaux and Kenny “kennyS” Schrub. In the case of the Bodyy transition, the organization will retain the status of the “legend” for the next major, as it will have 60% of the composition that went to the playoffs on ELEAGUE Major 2018.
On March 9, 2018, Shox was expelled from G2 Esports. With him, the team left the coach SmithZz, who resumed his playing career. Later shox told that he wanted to radically change the composition of G2 Esports by inviting Ex6TenZ and SmithZz instead of NBK and Dan “apEX” Madesclaire. KennyS was not against substitutions, but Bodyy did not believe in the future of such composition. As a result, the collective took Óscar “mixwell” Cañellas for a probationary period.
With this move, G2 Esport reportedly looks as follows:
Kévin “Ex6TenZ” Droolans
Richard “shox” Papillon
Edouard “SmithZz” Dubourdeaux
Alexandre “bodyy” Pianaro
Kenny “kennyS” Schrub
