G2 lead race for best Western team at Worlds 2023, just one win away from knockout stage

G2 Esports have once again silenced their pundits and proved they are arguably the best Western team at Worlds 2023 after they defeated Weibo Gaming in the second round of the Swiss stage. As a result, they move up to the 2-0 bracket, just one best-of-three away from the knockouts.

After taking down Dplus KIA in a chaotic fashion yesterday, G2 delivered once again on Friday against Weibo Gaming. The Chinese representatives had arguably the most dominant showing on Thursday after smashing NRG in their opening matchup, which made them slight favorites against G2, but Caps and crew continued to stun the world and took down the LPL team.
