G2 Esports announced G2 Hel, a completely female team that will be looking to make a name for themselves in future League of Legends competitions.
No, Carlos did not fire the main G2 roster nor did he replace them with a female equivalent. Just like many other teams have alternate rosters for various purposes, so will G2 with the Hel branch.
The all-female roster will compete in one of the official Riot leagues but the organisation didn't specify which one yet. While there are rumours Hel could participate in an already established league, there are claims an all-female competition is in the making.
This wouldn't be that new since Riot Games already has Valorant Game Changers where female teams are competing against one another and it wouldn't be too weird to dip into the larger League of Legends player pool to organise an equivalent circuit.
G2 Hel will consist of:
- Top: Olivia “Lizia” Calistua
- Jungle: Agnė “Karina” Ivaškevičiūtė
- Mid: Alena “TIFA” Maurer
- AD Carry: Maya “Caltys” Henckel
- Support: Ève “Colomblbl” Monvoisin
Interestingly enough, the roster that eventually became G2 Hel already has one trophy under their belt as they won the GIRLGAMER 2022 tournament during the Oradea Festival in Romania.
Another interesting bit of information is that the mid laner, TIFA, is in relationship with Fnatic head coach YamatoCannon, which should make the already spicy rivalry between the two organisations even more intriguing.
