Riot Games have announced all the teams who are officially partnered for VCT 2023. However, G2 has not made it.

This has come as a huge shock for fans as they are one of the biggest esports teams in the world.

Not just for Valorant but also League of Legends, Apex Legends, and Rainbow Six Siege.

Andrew Tate and G2 CEO

The G2 CEO, Carlos Rodriguez, has had some intense drama recently due to a certain person that he went parting with.

Andrew Tate is one of the biggest names on the internet right now for his misogyny, toxic masculinity, and deeply damaging thought processes.

And this was the man that Rodriguez decided to spend time with at a party.

Understandably, this caused outrage for esports fans due to the disturbing comments that Tate has made.

G2's denial from VCT 2023 could be due to the spiralling drama surrounding Rodriguez.

Twitter posts

Twitter posts have been pulled from Carlos Rodriguez's Twitter account due to the contradictions that he has made.

In an apology tweet, he vaguely admitted that his actions had been inappropriate.

However, several users posted a tweet from the day before which stated that they would do what he wanted to.

This is a complete contrast and honestly diminishes the already weak apology to non-existent.

Many G2 fans have lost faith in one of the biggest esports teams for Valorant which is a huge shame.
