As a result, the European esports team revealed three new members that will fill the remaining spots of their Valorant roster -- Žygimantas ‘nukkye’ Chmieliauskas, Auni ‘AvovA’ Chahade, and Jose Luis ‘koldamenta’ Aranguren Herrero.
The announcement was made via an amazing Twitter video, followed up by an official statement on G2's website.
"After not qualifying for VALORANT Masters in Iceland, we knew we needed to take the team in a new direction. We’re not looking to be on the sidelines, we’re looking to be the best. With these changes, we’re ready to take on the next challenge and win VALORANT Masters 2 in our home city of Berlin."

G2, who missed out on both VCT Masters events, was a dominant force for the majority of 2020, winning multiple tournaments leading up to First Strike, where they would bow out in the semifinals losing to Team Heretics.
With these changes, G2 fans hope to see a semblance of the squad that dominated European Valorant for so long.
