First they became world champions in Valorant, now they want to win titles in Counter-Strike! Two top players are switching sports within G2 Esports and founding a new team.
Whether Valorant or Counter-Strike, the main thing is titles!
After the players Zainab “Zaaz” Turkie and Julia “Juliano” Kiran managed to win the world title in Valorant together with G2 Esports, both now want to try it in Counter-Strike as well.

This means that the Berlin-based eSports company now has three all-female eSports teams, which, in addition to Valorant and League of Legends, will also be hunting for trophies in Counter-Strike in the future. The League of Legends roster is known as G2 Hel, while the CSGO division operates under G2 Oya. In Valorant, the name is G2 Gozen.
Both Julia “Juliano” Kiran and Zainab “Zaaz” Turkie were part of the legendary roster of G2 Gozen that won the grand final of the Valorant GameChangers tournament last year.
