G2 invited to IEM Oakland becoming the sixth participant.
G2 were invited to IEM Oakland earlier today via IEM’s Twitter page. The event takes place from November 19-20 in Oakland, California. G2 are the sixth name on the participants list along with SK Gaming, Virtus.pro, NiP, Astralis and Team Liquid.
“The legendary @G2esports will join the #csgo hype at #IEM Oakland on November 19-20!”
On the rocky road
The French speaking side featuring the likes of ShoX and ScreaM have had their ups and downs recently finishing outside of the top eight in ELEAGUE. ESL One Cologne wasn’t pleasant for G2 either, losing to Fnatic and SK denying them progression past the group stage. G2’s biggest achievement this year was the ECS Season 1 Finals in London (which can be read here).
IEM are yet to confirm a prize pool for the tournament.
