A week after G2 announced that former CS:GO pro Oscar ‘Mixwell’ Cañellas Colocho would be joining the organisation as captain of its new Valorant team, the second player on the roster has now been secured.
20-year-old Patryk ‘Patitek’ Fabrowski will be joining Mixwell on the team, likely as a result of his impressive showing in last week’s G2 Valorant Invitational in which his team reached the final, only to be defeated by the team led by his now captain. Patitek was previously an emerging talent in the Polish CS:GO scene but – like many other CS:GO pros who made the transition to Valorant – he had a VAC ban to his name, meaning a potential career at the top of CS:GO would be difficult.
Following the announcement of his signing, a confident Patitek tweeted that he is “really excited to join G2 Valorant team” and that he thinks no one can stop G2 being the “number one team in the world” – certainly a bold statement when you’ve only got two players so far.
Patitek’s performance in the G2 Invitational, which was one of the first events of the Valorant Ignition Series, must have really impressed G2’s founder Carlos ‘Ocelote’ Rodriguez, who was playing alongside the Pole during the event.
He carried @CarlosR to the G2 Ignition Series Final. He must be good!

Similarly to Patitek, Ocelote believes G2 can build a world championsip-winning Valorant team.
G2 is one of many top tier esports organisations forming Valorant teams, with the likes of 100 Thieves, T1, and Gen.G all signing top Valorant players.
