Fabian ‘Fabian’ Hällsten has been playing for G2 Esports since 2018 and he was their captain and long time leader. About leaving G2 Esports he said,
I felt that it was time for me to move on. During our recent performances, the group atmosphere wasn’t great, so I asked to be traded. I love my G2 teammates as friends but I don’t think we should continue playing together at this point. We’re currently working with G2 on finding me a new home. The option I was hoping for during this transfer period, unfortunately, didn’t work out, so I’m looking for other great opportunities for me out there, preferably in the EU but possibly other regions if the opportunity is spicy.
G2 Esports has also departed with Pascal ‘Cryn’ Alouane and Ferenc ‘SirBoss’ Mérész. Following their victory at the 2019 Six Invitational, G2 Esports wanted to make their roster stronger in order to compete on the upcoming events.
G2 Esports R6 Siege’s current roster is Juhani “Kantoraketti” Toivonen, Niclas “Pengu” Mouritzen, Aleksi “UUNO” Työppönen, Kevin “Sua” Stahnke, Jake “Virtue” Grannan , Ben “CTZN” McMillan, Thomas “Shas[O]Udas” Lee (coach)
