Gen.G, the Korean powerhouse, has established itself as the leading esports organization globally by achieving the extraordinary feat of winning international tournaments in both VALORANT and League of Legends within the same year. This accomplishment solidifies their position as the top team in these titles for 2024.

Gen.G’s Triumph in League of Legends

Nearly a month ago, Gen.G broke their long-standing curse in international League of Legends tournaments by claiming victory at the MSI 2024. This victory reaffirms their status as the best team in the world.

Despite dominating the LCK for several splits, exerting their dominance over T1, Gen.G had not secured an international trophy since their days as Samsung. Finally, they achieved this milestone in China, becoming the only team with a shot at the Grand Slam in 2024.


VALORANT Victory in Shanghai

In a remarkable turn of events, Gen.G also conquered the second Masters of VALORANT 2024 held in Shanghai. They faced Team Heretics in a thrilling final, coming back from a 2-1 deficit to secure the championship with an outstanding performance from t3xture.
