The team was founded by former SK Gaming mid-laner Carlos "ocelote" Rodríguez Santiago in 2014 with an initial roster of Top laner Jesper "Jwaow" Strandgren, jungler Sebastián "Morden" Esteban Fernández, AD carry Soler "Yuuki60" Florent, and support Hugo "Dioud" Padioleau.

The team participated in the Spring Expansion Tournament, beating Reason Gaming in the seeding game and Team Strix in Round 1. Gamers2 were knocked out of the tournament in Round 2 after being beaten by n!faculty.

G2 Esports is a Spanish organization, renamed from Gamers2 after qualifying for the 2016 EU LCS Spring Season.

The team currently competes under the name G2 Kinguin, in representation of their sponsor Kinguin.

The team failed to qualify for the LCS three splits in a row.

The team finished 1st in the Challenger Series season. They then took 2nd in the playoffs, thereby qualifying for the 2016 Spring LCS. Gamers2 qualified for the LCS by defeating SK Gaming 3-2.

G2 finished the 2016 EU LCS Spring Split regular season in 1st. In the playoffs, they defeated Fnatic before winning the 2016 EU LCS in Rotterdam after beating Origen. This also meant that they had qualified for the 2016 Mid-Season Invitational tournament in Shanghai. G2 would represent Europe at the competition against 5 other teams. However, in the weeks before the tournament, the team took an infamous vacation and came to the tournament unprepared. Because of this, they lost 8 of their 10 games, their only 2 wins against the lowest ranked side there. This also cost the EU LCS league its 1st seed for the 2016 World Championship later that year. This meant that the 1st seed for Europe of the 2016 Summer EU LCS would be put in Pot B for the group draw instead of Pot A.

The team plays LCS games out of the Am Studio 20D in Adlershof, Berlin.
