“I loved the day, thanks for being there ! More to come soon… For those are waiting for signing it’ll come today or tomorrow!” he said.
What’s next for G2 Esports?
The roster will still be working with a strong sense of synergy since they’re promoting JACKZ to a familiar role before he was benched for NiKo.
There’s been a heavy reliance on the Bosnian pro since he came onto the team. Still, there’s room to improve as the team has struggled to secure top finishes for months.
