G2 has already taken first steps into VALORANT with two editions of the G2 European Brawl, the recently announced G2 Esports VALORANT Invitational which will be the official kick-off for VALORANT Ignition Series on June 19th, 2020 where Riot Games is bringing together more than 20 esports organizations to create unique competitive events around the world.
A few highlights on Mixwell:
Mixwell is a former CS:GO pro and one of the winningest Spanish players of all time.
He is a top contender in VALORANT having recently won the biggest event in VALORANT history, Twitch Rivals: Valorant Launch Showdown — Europe No. 1.
Mixwell is also no stranger to G2 Esports, having joined the G2 CS:GO roster as a temporary player in 2018 and is now coming back with his sights set on being part of the best VALORANT team in the world.
Mixwell had this to say about joining G2: “G2’s history shows that they are competitive in every game they’ve been part of and their content is also top, most of my fans are also G2 fans so it makes even more sense for me. The goal is to be the best VALORANT team in the world and I want to be the best player in the game, have fun representing the fans around the world, and I am sure we can do it together.”
G2 CEO Carlos ‘ocelote’ Rodriguez had to say about the move: “VALORANT really is an amazing game I enjoy both playing and watching. G2 will have a World Championship winning team and it all starts with Mixwell. Many top organizations fought hard for him and we are delighted he’s put so much trust into letting us build a killer lineup alongside him. Now you mfers stop poaching him already.”
