G2 Esports has quickly filled the in-game leader position on their Counter-Strike 2 roster, with the Polish legend Janusz “⁠Snax⁠” Pogorzelski signing with the European organisation to replace Rasmus “HooXi” Nielsen, who was benched by the team on July 2.

Clearly, talks between the two parties have been going on for some time, as the announcement came shortly after GamerLegion, Snax’s previous team, announced that they had parted ways with their in-game leader, making way for the move to G2.

Snax is well-known in the Counter-Strike scene due to his very successful time with, who won 10 titles as an organisation between 2014 and 2016, including a Major, EMS ONE Katowice 2014.

Interestingly, Snax will now reconnect with his teammate, Wiktor “TaZ” Wojtas, who is the coach of G2, which should make the transition much easier for the new IGL.

After leaving, Snax joined MOUZ and continued his winning ways by leading them to the ESL One New York 2018 title, which would turn out to be the last trophy that he lifted at the top level.

In 2023, Snax signed with GamerLegion, returning to a top-tier team for the first time since 2019, and he was tasked with leading their young core of players into several tournaments, with the best result being their third-fourth-place finish at the CCT Global Finals 2024 in May.

Now that Snax has signed with G2 Esports, he will complete their CS2 roster, joining Nikola “NiKo’ Kovac, Ilya “M0NESY” Osipov, Nemanja “⁠huNter-⁠” Kova, and new addition Mario “⁠malbsMd⁠” Samayoa.

G2’s new additions will debut at the Esports World Cup Counter-Strike 2 tournament, and plenty of spectators will watch closely to see how this powerhouse kicks off a new era under the leadership of Snax.

The Esports World Cup CS2 tournament will begin on July 17 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, where the world number six is marked an +700 chance with esports betting sites to claim the title and take home the US$400,000 winners cheque.
