That roster combines elements of the ESEA Season 33 District 7 lineup with the old pieces of the FRENCH CANADIANS lineup that was the namesake of the team prior to signing. This move pairs active CS:GO players like Anthony "gMd" Guimond, who posted a 1.06 rating in ESEA MDL Season 33, with older faces like Keven "PLAYER1" Champagne who hasn't been active in the competitive CS:GO scene since ESEA Season 30.
Gen.G's Canadian VALORANT roster are now:
- Keven "PLAYER1" Champagne
- Danny "huynh" Huynh
- Michael "MkaeL" De Luca
- Anthony "gMd" Guimond
- Loic "effys" Sauvageau
- Andrew "Blank" Leverette (Coach)
Andrew "Blank" Leverette was a H1Z1 pro and founding member of the H1Z1 Pro League as a part of Impact. He has been listed as a Performance Coach by the organization.
Gen.G won the T1 x Nerd Street Gamers Invitational to pocket $20,000 in their debut event yesterday.
