G2 welcomes keloqz to Valorant roster, pyth benched

Wassim “keloqz” Cista has joined G2 Esports' Valorant roster, the organization has announced. He will be stepping in for Jacob “pyth” Mourujärvi, who has been moved to the bench.

Cista's move to G2 is somewhat expected, as rumours had spread that the Berlin-based organisation were looking to pick up the player. It's worth mentioning that this will be his biggest challenge yet lacks experience at the top level.

keloqz has seen success in tier 2 Valorant. Lately, he won VALORANT Open Tour: France as a part of Megastitut, beating teams such as Team BDS.

The Swede has been given permission to look for new opportunities and, looking at his experience and history, he shouldn’t stay on the bench for too long. pyth was an integral part of a G2 roster that dominated the opening stages of Valorant esports, a team that was eventually usurped by their rivals and which has now seen a number of changes.

The new-look G2 roster's first test will be the open qualifier for VCT 2021: Europe Stage 3 Challengers 1. The competition starts on Monday, 28th June.
