G2 Esports have parted ways with their duelist Oscar ‘mixwell’ Cañellas Colocho from their active Valorant division as they have replaced the 26-year-old Spanish player with Wassim “keloqz” Cista who was earlier benched at the end of December in 2021.
Mixwell, one of G2 Esports’ elite members, has been allowed to evaluate his options further as his time with the German-based organization comes to an end following defeat at the hands of Alliance in the first round of the lower bracket at the first European closed qualifiers ahead of the VCT 2022 EMEA circuit.
Keloqz had initially replaced Mixwell on January 13, right after their elimination from the European Closed Qualifier as the former was spotted practicing with the team which indeed didn’t feature Mixwell in the sessions. A plethora of reports then suggested the benching of the Spaniard was inevitable which now stands confirmed as the player on his Twitter handle wrote,
G2 in June 2020 had signed Mixwell as their first piece of the puzzle for their Valorant roster as the ex-CSGO veteran led the former to some notable championships including the Red Bull Home Ground where they won over their regional counterparts Team Liquid. Under Mixwell, G2 made it to the VCT 2021: Stage 3 Masters – Berlin, Valorant’s first ever LAN tournament but fell to Gambit Esports in the Semi-finals of the same. G2’s recent run left them with nothing but to only reassess their options for the 2022 pro season which eventually led them to add keloqz back to the roster and bid farewell to Mixwell.
Mixwell has currently been linked to Team KOI, a Spanish Esports organization where the acquisition is yet to be taken into consideration as they were reportedly waiting for G2 Esports to make their move. Stay tuned with us at TalkEsport as more is to follow.
With keloqz back on the starting roster, G2 Esports are now:
- Žygimantas “nukkye” Chmieliauskas (In-game leader)
- Auni “AvovA” Chahade
- Wassim “keloqz” Cista
- Aaro “hoody” Peltokangas
- Johan “Meddo” Renbjörk
- Daniil “pipsoN” Meshcheryakov (Head Coach)
