G2 Rocket League Roster’s Rise to the Top

Ever since the birth of the RLCS in 2016, players and teams alike from across the world have been vying to call themselves the best. Here now in 2022, despite the duopoly of the father figures Europe and North America being tested in recent years, it is still these two regions that have locked out the podium positions at all major events to date.

A storied history the organization has had to say the least since joining the esport in its first year, from the past cornerstones of Rizzo and Kronovi to the roster of JKnaps, Chicago and Atomic we see them excelling with today.

Although he did not know it at the time, JKnaps would not win another LAN event for nearly 4 and a half years. A last place finish at the RLCS Season 6 World Championship in Las Vegas the following November, and being upstaged by fellow North Americans Cloud9 would lead G2 to announce the replacement of Kronovi in January 2019. Enter Reed “Chicago” Wilen, who had tragically missed out on promotion from RLRS in back to back seasons, but regardless still did so while putting up a standout performance. It was a matter of when and not if he would make his meteoric rise.
