Goga departs G2 Esports in roster shake-up

After a disappointing year, the G2 Esports roster is set for another change as Daniel “Goga” Mazorra Romero has been dropped from the Rainbow Six Siege team.
Goga departs G2 Esports in roster shake-up

Despite being the dominant force in Rainbow Six Siege esports for years, G2 have suffered a noticeable dip in performance over the past year – failing to defend their Six Major title in Raleigh and not qualifying for their second Pro League Finals in a row.  

In a possible bid to turnaround their fortunes, the team have announced the departure of support player Goga, which has been described as a “team decision”. 

Posting on Twitter, Goga wrote: “So yeah, it’s official, I’m not part of G2 anymore... Not much to say, it was a team decision, but no hard feelings toward my ex-teammates! 

“I really loved all these years together but things always come to an end! This said, more news coming soon.” 

As part of G2, Goga, Niclas “Pengu” Mouritzen, Fabian “Fabian” Hallsten and Joonas “jNSzki” Savolainen became the most successful team Rainbow Six Siege esports has ever seen – winning seven international titles.  

They’ve gone through multiple line-up changes since, but their success streak continued until last year when they failed to make it through to the Pro League Finals in Season 9 – which led jNSzki to be replaced by Aleksi “UUNO” Tyopponen.  

It seems the departure of Goga similarly reflects their dwindling success in 2019, although we’ll have to see if G2 can turn it around for the OGA Minor in December – where they hope to qualify for the 2020 Six Invitational in Montreal.  

Posting about Goga’s departure on Twitter, teammate Pengu wrote: “Goga has put down more plants than anyone else I have ever been in a team with, and that is no small feat.  

“The past three years of my career has been with one of the greatest support players of Europe, best of luck Goga, see you on the battlefield!”
