JACKZ Calls ESL Pro League S14 "Nightmare Tournament" For G2 Esports After Third Loss
G2 Esports are clearly struggling in the ongoing tournament.
G2 Esports is not feeling it at ESL Pro League Season 14 after a fantastic run at IEM Cologne 2021, where they placed second after a defeat to Na'Vi in the grand finals. G2 is on a brutal three-match losing streak, having lost to Sinners Esports, OG, and Complexity Gaming, as they currently stand at the bottom of 'Group-B'. The players are clearly disappointed, with the French rifler Audric "JaCkz" Jug coming forward to call this a "nightmare tournament" for them. A similar sentiment was shared by G2's star player Nikola "NiKo" Kovač who labelled their run as disappointing while also apologizing to all the fans and supporters.
JACKZ calls ESL Pro League Season 14 a "nightmare tournament" for G2 Esports
Expectations were high from G2 Esports going into ESL Pro League Season 14. After their incredible run at the CS:GO LAN tournament, IEM Cologne 2021 which took place last month, G2 Esports was believed to at least make it to the playoffs.
However, they might now actually be on the verge of getting eliminated, having lost all their matches so far in the tournament. G2 Esports started on a losing note as they went down '2-1' to Sinners Esports which was quite the shock.
This was followed by a '2-0' whitewash against OG, as G2 managed to win a total of just 15 rounds. The crushing blow was a third loss against Complexity by a '2-1' scoreline, where G2, despite an early lead, allowed the enemy team to comeback into the series and win it.
JACKZ seemed to be really affected following this loss, going on to state that this season of the ESL Pro League had been nothing but a "nightmare tournament" for them.
NiKo too, shared similar sentiments while François "AmaNEk" Delaunay was sad to have lost on his 28th birthday. However, G2 Esports, true to its nature, tried to keep the mood light and spirits high on the back of some top-tier memes.
It is not the end of the road for G2 Esports, as there is still a tiny ray of hope that they might just be able to qualify for the playoffs. However, this would require them to at least win their two remaining matches while hoping that the other teams on top of them to lose theirs.
