Last year, On 6th November Global esports organization, Gen.G, announced the formation of its first CS:GO team.
The roster included some of the finest CS:GO pro players including 3 players from the former Cloud9 roster. Soon within a few days, Gen.G acquired s0m from Team Envy and Bntet from Tyloo. The roster looked promising, but the CS:GO community was still not satisfied with the addition of koosta in the team.
Below is the list of players who joined the Gen.G organization as the CS:GO team:
- Kenneth “koosta” Suen
- Damian “daps” Steele
- Timothy “autimatic” Ta
Gen.G’s first match was against j4Fun where they lost by 16-14. However, their next few matches they dominated and the CS:GO community had found a new North American team to root for. Some even predicted Gen.G to be the next Number 1 CS:GO team from North America. And their predictions clear when they won DreamHack Anaheim CSGO with a prize pool of 50,000 US $.
They entered the tournament as underdogs but they left as the champions with the newly formed North American roster. Since then this North American CS:GO roster has been looking dominant slowly and steadily making their way to the 17th HLTV ranking.
Yesterday they faced Divine and Orgless in the Americas Minor Championship – Rio 2020: North American Closed Qualifier and made their way to through to America’s minor. They had no troubles overcoming Divine and secured their spot in Rio de Janeiro winning against their upcoming FLASHPOINT 1 competitors from Orgless.
The Future Of this new Gen.G Roster:
The new Gen.G looks promising after swiftly making their way to the American minors and making their way to Rio de Janeiro but do they have what it takes to be the next best North American CS:GO team?. They still need to topple over some of the North American’s finest Team Liquid,Evil Geniuses, Complexity but if they keep going on a pace like this they are sure to make into the top 5 by this year.
