2021 LEC Off-Season | Wunder, Miykx, and Grabbz All Available for Buyout
The 2021 LEC off-season still hasn’t begun, and yet it’s already clear that we’ll be in for quite a show: G2 Esports has made Martin “Wunder” Nordahl Hansen, Mihael “Mikyx” Mehle, and Fabian “GrabbZ” Lohmann available for buyout! This, in short, should really come as no surprise given the fact that G2 failed to qualify for 2021 Worlds — the first and only time in its long and storied history.
So, needless to say, sweeping changes had to have been made for G2 to stand even the slightest chance of once again reclaiming its spot at the very top of Europe. And, who knows, this might just be the foretaste of what’s to come — additional changes could very well follow in the coming weeks and months, both in regards to G2’s starting line-up and coaching staff.
Big Numbers, As Expected
G2 is supposedly looking to sell both Wunder and Mikyx as a package deal (if possible) for a whopping $4.1 million, as per Pablo Suárez., but Grabbz on the other hand, has a buyout of around $188k, although none of these numbers are final and are obviously negotiable.
Moreover, if the rumor mill is to be believed, Team Vitality and Team BDS are interested in acquiring at least some (if not all) of these individuals, so it’ll be interesting to see what’ll happen and which organization will end up splurging in an attempt to improve its chances of winning an LEC title.
And, well, it should really come as no surprise that G2 wants to capitalize on the situation and turn as much of a profit as possible — that’s just business 101, and that’s precisely what G2 excels at.
Whom they’ll pick up next, however, is anyone’s guess. This perennial LEC organization is supposedly finalizing a deal with Sergen “Broken Blade” Çelik and Dylan Falco, but the support position remains a question mark. Zdravets “Hylissang” Iliev Galabov will become a free agent after Worlds, and Erik “Treatz” Wessén wouldn’t be such a bad option either — at least as a stopgap.
Either way, we should be in for one heck of an off-season!
