On November 7th, 2017, KSV announced its entrance into the PUBG scene, with the team KSV Asel.[1] Just a few weeks later, on December 7, 2017, KSV added a second team for PUBG, KSV Notitle.[2] On August 16, 2018, Gen.G announced the merging of the two teams.[3] On August 16th, 2018, Gen.G announced the merging of the two teams.[3] The resulting team has proved very succesful over the years, winning the first PUBG World Championship PUBG Global Invitational 2018, the 2019 Global Championship and placing third at the 2021 Global Invitational.

History[edit]

In November 2017 organisation formed two Korean-based PUBG teams - KSV Notitle / KSV NTT ( later rebranded to Gen.G Black ) and KSV AseL ( later rebranded to KSV CLES, then to Gen.G Gold )

Gen.G Black started 2018 strong, winning first major Korean PUBG league in AfreecaTV PUBG League ( APL ) Pilot Season in February, followed by defending their championship in APL Season 1 in May and representing South Korea in IEM Katowice PUBG Invitational and PUBG Global Invitational.

Meanwhile, KSV_AseL struggled throughout winter of 2018, after which they've replaced players 'LeeTaeJun' and 'Aloha' with two rookies, 'Loki' and 'Chelator'. These changes proved successful as KSV CLES / Gen.G Gold racked up three second-place finishes throughout PUBG Korea League Season 1 ( APL Season 1 , SpoTV Warfare Masters Pro Tour and OGN Survival Series Season 2 ) before finishing 1st in PKL 2018 Season 1 and winning the PUBG Global Invitational/2018 World Championship.

On August 16th it have been announced that organisation will merge their teams into single PUBG roster. A unified roster got mixed results as they finished 11th in Starladder & I-League PUBG Season 2 in September, 4th in PUBG Korea League Season 2 Finals, 9th in PUBG Japan Series Winter Invitational in December and 14th in Korea League 2019 Phase 1 in March, before returning to the top with a championship runs in Korea League 2019 Phase 2, MET Asia Series and once again, become the PUBG Global Championship/2019 winner and bring home more than 2 million dollars.

On March 28th, 2020, Gen.G placed third at the PUBG Global Invitational.S/2021
