There are those who decide to leave and those who instead opt for the investment. G2 Esports, a historic European multi-gaming organization ( now a legend for the Rainbow Six Siege scene), recently announced its debut in the Apex Legends competitive scene. The organization has acquired a Finnish roster.
The organization joined Apex Legends with a team mainly dedicated to streaming last February, recruiting Craig “onscreen” Shannon and Josh “phantomACE” and Mark “phantasy” Pinney. But then, the organization on Apex Legends was almost eclipsed. A bit like what happened to many others during the turbulent post-launch months.
The G2, on the other hand, are now back in the office, hiring Sebastian ” Mimu ” Vesala, Niko ” ZeroNothing ” Suominen and Aaro ” straight ” Hälli. These three players are very close together and, above all, they have great experience in EA’s battle royale.
Mimu and ZeroNothing found their competitive route on the Team Reciprocity roster, where they participated in the X Games in Minneapolis. They finished in second place, earning around $ 24,000. Rette, on the other hand, is less known in the competitive but equally formidable. He took first place in the Apex. Pro Europe tournament along with Mimu and ZeroNothing in June, beating Tier 1 teams like North and PENTA Sports.
Now, the baptism of fire with their new jacket will be at the Apex Legends Preseason Invitational in Krakow which will begin next September 13, 2019. The team is located in Berlin, home of the G2 Esports headquarters.
Here they will prepare with the staff of G2 Esports and settle in the house gaming in preparation for the event, which is one of the biggest competitive events to date for the title.
Respawn and EA are trying to pump the competitive scene with their $500,000 tournament. The Apex Legends Pre Invitational could be the catalyst that starts the eSport scene of the battle royale.
