We took VALORANT by storm with the G2 Gozen team which includes five of the most gifted and entertaining players who happen to be females. You should expect nothing less from G2 Hel. We will dominate competitively, all while having fun the G2 way.

G2 Hel and their team name

Hel is a tribute to the mythical figure, Hel, the daughter of Loki. She is the Goddess of death and Lord of the Underworld Kingdom.

It comes on the back of G2’s new team naming system – which is based on the names of female warriors or from female mythological figures, no matter when and where they are from, that represent G2’s brand values.

Having such an iconic and strong figure as their title will ensure that the team excel in their careers.

This is about to get exciting.
