In April 2020, gMd, effys, PLAYER1, huynh, and Mkael formed a VALORANT team using the French Canadian name once more. Together they’ve attended and had favorable results at a few VALORANT tournaments, their best being a first-place finish at Nerd Street Gamers - Open #2, and the just-concluded T1 x Nerd Street Gamers Invitational.
The entire Gen. G Esports VALORANT roster consists of:
Keven "PLAYER1" Champagne
Danny "huynh" Huynh
Michael "MkaeL" De Luca
Anthony "gMd" Guimond
Loic "effys" Sauvageau
Gen. G Esports’ debut tournament showed how dominant a team they are. Through T1 x Nerd Street Gamers Invitational, they lost only one game, and that was in the Grand Finals against Team Brax. Ending the match 2-1, they walked away with the $20,000 prize.
