In June 2020, G2 Esports finally claimed the CSGO world number one ranking for the first time in the organization’s history.

But the line-up that accomplished this wasn’t the French super-team that G2 used to be known for, but rather, an international side lead by Serbian in-game leader Nemanja ‘nexa’ Isaković.

Nexa joined the organization alongside former CR4ZY teammate Nemanja ‘huNter’ Kovač, who is actually the cousin of the legendary FaZe player Nikola ‘NiKo’ Kovač.  These two additions would revolutionize G2 who, in the past, had never quite lived up to its billing and expectations.

There weren’t instant results, but after nine months the side went from one that was written off by many to the greatest heights G2 have reached in Counter-Strike, and most of this was off the back of Isakovic’s leading.

We have analyzed the stats behind nexa’s gameplay, along with insight from the mind of the man himself, to examine just how vital he is to the team’s recent success.

Operation Broken Fang is here, and that means heaps of new CS:GO content. If you want to make the most out of it though, and try and get that Diamond coin, you’ll want to complete the weekly missions. When better than to start in Week 1?

Christmas has come early for CS:GO players. Operation Broken Fang has dropped over a year after Operation Shattered Web started, and it’s brought a bevy of new content.

Seven new maps, nearly 100 skins, an entirely new game mode in Retakes, and even more. The best way to get your hands all over this though is through the battle pass and weekly missions.

The battle pass will set you back around $15 USD, but it’s worth it if you are going to grind the game. Plus, it’ll also give you access to the weekly missions, which are the best way to experience the new content.
