“Mary has decided to take a break from competitive Valorant to focus on her studies,” G2’s statement said.

In her stead, the team has signed Sarah ‘sarah’ Ahmed as a stand-in for the tournament.

Mary was a stand-out player for G2 Gozen and was a big part of the squad’s world championship run in 2022. The teenage player also helped her squad win the first EMEA Game Changers event of the year. G2 Gozen defeated BBL Queens in Game Changers Series One 3-2 in the Grand Final.
