Gen.G is a Korean/American professional esports organization. The current team was formed in August 2018 following the merge of the Gen.G Gold and Gen.G Black teams.

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 TPP 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 winner and bring home more than 2 million dollars.
