G2 are preparing to introduce Aaro "hoody" Peltokangas, Johan "Meddo" Renbjörk Lundborg and Daniil "pipsoN" Mesheryakov, according to Dexerto's Arran "Halo" Spake. Jakub "frs" Czapran first reported the information.
keloqz and koldamenta were officially inducted into G2 as part of a massive overhaul the team went through prior to Stage 3. The changes placed G2 back on top, as they finished second in their first VCT main event with the revamped roster, following that up with a fourth-place finish in the Stage 3: Challengers Playoffs.
Despite finishing the Berlin LAN in the top four, G2 didn't acquire enough points to qualify for Champions, which meant they had to play the Last Chance Qualifier. There, G2 finished third after losing to Guild 2-0, missing out on Champions. Following this, former analyst Lucas "LRojo" Rojo was the first to allude to changes, followed by Žygimantas "nukkye" Chmieliauskas addressing tensions on his stream.
Giants recently announced they had "reached an agreement" with an unspecified organization. According to Dexerto, Meddo, hoody, and pipsoN are heading to G2. The first two players will be replacing keloqz and koldamenta, while pipsoN will fill the role of Neil "neilzinho" Finlay, whose contract ends in December.
The three members come off a hot finish to the year under Giants' banner, reaching the EMEA Challengers Playoffs. In their final tournament, Red Bull Home Ground #2, Giants placed third.
