The European champions may not have walked the golden path in 2019 – which not a team League of Legends never had – but failure at AccorHotels Arena in Final match The World Championships cannot erase their very good year.
G2 won the 2019 LEC Spring Split with a 3-0 win over Origen. A 3-0 win in the match final MSI, where they defeated Team Liquid in a decisive international match.
The team faced a closer challenge in the Summer LEC, as they battled Fnatic in the best of two series, including a sweep back in the finals of the qualifiers. Finally G2 won their third trophy.
All achievements hey, and the fact that they end up with the location runner-up being on the biggest League of Legends stage in the world is a great addition to their successful year. Perkz said that it will be the things that remind him of 2019.
He said in a vlog: “It was bad when we lost, and even worse when we lost 3-0, but overall I am very pleased with what we have done this year. Looking back, it was a really crazy year, and a lot of things we didn’t expect happened. We had a lot of fun.”
“My teammates were crazy, everyone did a great job. Although we couldn’t do it yesterday, we have the experience to do better in the future. Next year, we will. This is just the beginning.”
Captain G2 Nor was he the only one to express that emotion after failure. His teammate, Mikyx, also said that even though he lost FPX but the whole team is happy with what they have done this year.
The support star shared with the media after the world final: “For the past three years I haven’t really been successful. Even though losing the final was a defeat, I’m still happy with the results we’ve had this year because we’ve basically won more.”
“I think the bad feeling will only be for today, in a few days I can look back on the year and be happy, and hopefully even further next year. We want to try to have a win-only year.”
For now, it looks like G2 Esports may have another shot to add the world championship to their trophy shelf, with an all-star LEC roster signed until the 2021 season and it seems unlikely that Ocelote intend to change anyone in the lineup.
