Lmbt: "I've heard that tabseN and gob b might join G2"2022-07-23 07:40:00
Serhii "lmbt" Bezhanov claims that BIG's Johannes "tabseN" Wodarz and Fatih "gob b" Dayik might join G2 Esports. Apparently, they will replace Aleksi "Aleksib" Virolainen and Rémy "XTQZZZ" Quoniam. He also commented on ex-NAVI IGL Kirill "Boombl4" Mikhaylov as an option for G2. The coach talked about it on Oleksandr "Petr1k" Petrik's podcast.
On BIG members joining G2
I've heard that tabseN and gob b might join G2. If that really happens, that looks very strong. I can share my reasoning behind this opinion. NiKo worked with god b, he was his captain in MOUZ. He respected him a lot and really liked him as a leader. So if this move happens, it looks like a serious improvement in all directions.
[Who should they pick up instead of JACKZ?] They need a replacement, but that's not an issue. They have a lot of options, if they have the money, they will solve it. If everything will go this way, this will be the first good change in G2, because I didn't believe in Aleksib and XTQZZZ since the first day. I messaged NiKo about it: "I respect you, but I have no idea what are you guys doing". I had no conflicts with NiKo, same as with s1mple. We respected each other, had no arguments. To work with NiKo, he needs to respect you. Who he is going to respect, Aleksib and XTQZZZ? Are you kidding me? That's not even funny.
On Boombl4 as an option
[Well, Boombl4 is respected by many, including NiKo]. Who respects him, NiKo? I don't want to take anything from Kirill, but don't build an idol out of thin air. You see that NAVI now had no issues, right? Do you remember what happened right after Zeus left the team? That was bad, and now they've gotten better. You know why? Because players learned to play and communicate with each other.
The current G2 roster situation is unclear. After a series of lackluster performances, Aleksib announced that the team now lets him explore other options. According to blix.gg, XTQZZZ will be cut as well. NeL claimed that JACKZ will also be allowed to loot for other teams.
Boombl4 didn't announce anything yet since being removed from NAVI at the end of May. He only teased fans that he has to fly abroad to "create something very interesting". Many took this as a hint of him joining a non-Russian speaking roster.
Lmbt worked with NiKo in MOUZ from September 2016 to February 2017. In this period the team didn't achieve any big results.
