European esports giants G2 Esports have signed their own new all-female League of Legends teams, to be known as ‘Hel’. Already one of the top female teams in the world, the new team’s name is inspired by Norse mythology, where Hel is a powerful goddess and the daughter of Loki.
The Hel team is made up of some of the most successful talent in the esports industry – Olivia ‘Lizia’ Calistua, Agnė ‘Karina’ Ivaškevičiūtė, Alena ‘TIFA’ Maurer, Maya ‘Caltys’ Henckel and Ève ‘Colomblbl’ Monvoisin.
Carlos ‘Ocelote’ Rodriguez, founder & CEO of G2 Esports, says: “At G2, we build teams and bring in top players based on skill, talent, and brand fit, regardless of gender or orientation. We want to give all players the chance to fulfil their potential and realise their dreams. G2 Hel includes some of the best female players in the world and we are delighted to have them on board. As is the case with all of our teams, they’ll have our full support and we are excited for them to help us fill our cabinet with more League of Legends trophies, in fact, they already won a trophy before they were even announced!”
