In our opinion, the Giants may prove to be the dark horse of the VCT 2023. Let's see who represents them!
We haven't seen Giants at all during VCT 2022, but the organization still made it to the franchising program due to their popularity. The roster is made of representatives of the previous G2 Esports roster, and it is one of many mix teams in the circuit. However, we think that this team could really surprise, and even beat the most prominent EMEA teams such as Fnatic or Natus Vincere.

So, as you can see, Giants are a mix formed from teams such as G2 Esports, Acend, Gen.G Esports, and Natus Vincere, where the most recognizable players are "nukkye" and "hoody" from the previous G2 Esports roster. And while it is not the flashiest roster in the circuit, it is still looking strong on paper. For comparison, we think that this roster is much stronger than any Turkish team from the EMEA circuit, but it is an underdog against the absolute top organizations.
Still, it's not like we don't believe that they can win against the top teams. It can be a pretty interesting roster, and we can't wait to see it during the LOCK//IN tournament.
