Worlds 2020: West’s Last Hope G2 Esports Step Up and Sweep Gen. G in Quarters
G2 Esports decisively strike down Gen. G 3-0 and redeem themselves in the Worlds 2020 Quarterfinals.
After finishing second to Suning in Group A, G2 Esports have redeemed themselves by taking down Gen. G who performed well throughout groups.
In Game 1, Luka “Perkz” Perković and Mihael “Mikyx” Mehle lost to Park “Ruler” Jae-hyuk and Kim “Life” Jeong-min in the bottom lane giving Gen. G a lead in the early game. However, G2 Esports found ways of picking off Gen. G and tipped the game in their favor. In the following games, G2 Esports continued with their skirmish-heavy playstyle taking Gen. G off guard all throughout.
Throughout the series, Rasmus “Caps” Winther went on a rampage on his Sylas controlling the pace of the game and carrying G2 to their wins. The unstoppable mid laner went deathless in Game 2 with a fully-stacked Mejai’s Soulstealer and put Gwak “Bdd” Bo-seong in his place.
Despite their dominant performance, G2 Esports still has key weaknesses that can be exploited by the teams left in Worlds. If they are to finally secure a championship for the West, G2 Esports will have to go above and beyond as the tournament goes on. G2 Esports is the last remaining Western team in the tournament and is once again, Europe’s last hope after Fnatic fell to Top Esports.
