G2 Esports prematurely dismisses League of Legends superstar Martin “Rekkles” Larsson – at least that’s what they say. Rekkel’s teammates Caps and Jankos are said to have played their part.
Reliable sources report that LoL superstar Martin “Rekkles” Larsson and LEC team G2 Esports will go their separate ways in the future. It was not until the 2021 season that the ADC player switched from Fnatic to G2 with a lot of attention. The organization should already prepare its sale.
LoL: G2 and Rekkles
The 25-year-old’s contract does not end until November 2023, but G2 seems to want to split up this November. The relationship between player and organization is said to be strained after the missed World Cup participation. Last week it came to light that G2 was trying out various European ADCs.
According to insiders, the main reason for the departure of the ADC is to be found internally. Accordingly, both Rasmus “Caps” Borregaard Winther and Marcin “Jankos” Jankowski should no longer want to play with the Swede. Caps is said to have already extended his contract, Jankos is about to – as a result, Rekkles has to vacate his place.
It is also said that G2 selects potential negotiating partners for a change of superstar very carefully. Team Vitality, for example, is said to have expressed interest, but G2 is said not to have been willing to negotiate with the French.
Where the Swedes will go next is completely open. A change to China and thus to the LPL is not ruled out. Several teams should be interested in a transfer, according to sources close to the G2. Nevertheless, it is also possible to stay in Europe or move to North America.
For Rekkles and G2 it was always a disappointing and even the weakest season in the history of the organization. In the Spring Split Playoffs, the highly decorated team only reached third place. They also made too many mistakes in the Summer Split Playoffs and finished in 4th place – for the first time since their rebranding to G2 Esports in 2015, they missed a world championship.
