G2 Esports recruits Hafu as debut Teamfight Tactics player
G2 Esports is extending its reach of influence into Teamfight Tactics by adding popular player Rumay “Hafu” Wang to its streaming roster.
The official G2 Esports Twitter account sent out a video in which founding CEO Carlos Rodriguez discussed the growing popularity of TFT. Towards the end of the video, Rodriguez reveals that Hafu will be joining the organization due to her high level of play and experience in the new game mode.
“I know many of the #G2ARMY are already her fans and am certain that she will entertain and educate all of us on what it is to be at the top of the TFT ladder,” Rodriguez said. “I have no doubt she’ll teach me a thing or two about TFT.”
Hafu got her start as a World of Warcraft pro before moving over to Hearthstone. She now operates as a full-time streamer and currently focuses on climbing the ladder in TFT. Hafu has proven to be a force to be reckoned with and even achieved ranked 1 during TFT’s beta. She now occupies one of the limited number of coveted Challenger slots in the game.
It is uncertain whether Hafu will be competing for G2 Esports or if she will focus on representing the group on Twitch, but she has stated that she hopes to compete. Hafu is joining the organization as its first female player as well as its first representative from North America.
“I’m super excited to be joining G2 and doing the team proud! For the next year, I just want to do what I love, which is to stream, hang out with chat and constantly improve in Teamfight Tactics with G2 beside me the whole time,” Hafu said.
TFT continues to build hype around itself and the community is wondering if a sponsored competitive scene is going to spring up as a result. G2 will be ahead of the curve with Hafu on its side if and when a competitive scene truly gets underway.
