YNk: "Thought XTQZZZ was a brilliant pickup for G2"
XTQZZZ received backlash from CS:GO community after leaving G2's head coach position.

Recently, with a shocking announcement G2 Esports posted on their Twitter that XTQZZZ has stepped down from the role of G2 Esports head coach and will no longer be part of the team.

The reaction was mixed XTQZZZ leaving G2. Some people believed it was great for the team, and some argued that XTQZZZ quit on his players and were never expecting something like this from him.

The famous Counter-Strike analyst and currently the part of broadcast talent at IEM Rio Major, Janko "YNk" Paunović was not very happy with this decision of XTQZZZ's. He was expecting more from the former head coach and thought he was the best pickup for G2 Esports.

In a Twitter post, he says, "So he did just leave the team…I’ve had a lot of respect for XTQZZZ and thought he was a brilliant pickup for G2 but the manner in which he handled himself here is atrocious, he simply quit on his players, I’d never expect something like that from him."

The in-game leader of Team Vitality, apEX responded to YNk by disagreeing that his decision was for good and he understood the coach’s decision. “I know the guy really well. If he did that, it’s for a good reason.

G2 Esports has appointed their analyst as interim coach Jan "Swani" Müller after XTQZZZ left the team. 

The decision made by the former head coach is controversial since the former IGL of the team, Aleksib, had to leave the team because he was aligned with the team's mission as per the coach himself.

Before Aleksib left the team for NIP, the speculation was going around for quite a while, and it was expected that either the coach Rémy "XTQZZZ" Quoniam or Aleksib Antti Kaarlo would leave the team, as both of them cannot stay in the same team due to conflicts about strategy and overall process about the games.

Now, after months both of them are outside the team. Also, G2 Esports failed to qualify for the IEM Rio Major 2022.
