Jks to G2 Esports
Reportedly, G2 Esports has signed the Australian rifler main jks to take the playing spot of French support JACKZ in their CSGO team for the rest of the 2022 season, according to a news report by Dexerto.
Jks has been looking for a new CS GO team since November 2021 during this period he has been able to accomplish quite a lot, however it all changed when Complexity Gaming listed its entire international team for free agency / transfer. The 26 year old spent most of the 2022 season without playing aside from an emergency stand in period in February with FaZe Clan, where he actually went ballistic to win IEM Katowice over G2 Esports.
During his short playing time with FaZe, jks showed the community and organizations alike that he could play other roles other than being a lurker or a support, which has been his primary playstyle since the start of his career. While playing under FaZe, he took the majority of rain’s angles and played as the team’s designated entry fragger in most of the games. Nevertheless, the Australian native should be a good fit for G2 since he also brings something that is lacking within the roster, more firepower outside of JACKZ.
This report comes a couple of days after G2 allowed JACKZ to explore the agency market. The French rifler was a part of G2 since 2018 and helped the team to reach the grand finals of PGL Stockholm Major in 2021 (the highest place finish for G2). Finnish IGL Aleksi “Aleksib” Virolainen is reportedly in the same situation as JACKZ. G2 is actively searching for a new IGL to take over the team to better results.
Spinx to Vitality
Now going into Israeli CSGO betting superstar Lotan “Spinx” Giladi, it seems he is on his way out of ENCE to end up with Vitality, where he’ll most likely take the spot of Kevin “misutaaa” Rabier, according to news by 1pv.fr.
Previous reports showed that Vitality had plans to bench misutaaa after a disastrous first half of the year in which the team never really took off despite bringing a high profile trio of Astralis dupreeh, Magisk, and head coach zonic. Spinx apparently is on top of Vitality’s interest ever since the organization decided to part ways with misutaaa.
He absolutely came to stardom under the ENCE organization this year, being a key part helping the team to make deep runs in a couple of Major CS GO tournaments like ESL Pro League season 15 and PGL Antwerp Major. The Israeli native averaged a 1.15 rating thus far, and has been ENCE’s steady rock with his consistent high level performances.
If Spinx decides to sign and the departure of misutaaa is confirmed, Vitality would give another step back towards being the “French” CS GO team in the scene as Dan “apEX” Madesclaire and Mathieu “ZywOo” Herbaut are the only Frenchmen left in the roster.
Now going to ENCE, losing Spinx could be quite problematic for the international team. He has played a key role in the team and it will be hard to find a direct replacement that can bring the same level of IQ and mechanical prowess. Polish legend snax did a great job when he replaced Spinx at IEM Dallas in June and is currently a free agent.
