G2 Rekkles Is Official
We all knew it was coming, but now it’s finally official: G2 Esports has signed Martin “Rekkles” Larsson as their AD carry for the 2021 competitive season! Just writing such a sentence makes one feel… strange. Like this is all but a confusing dream. And yet it’s not — it’s just 2020, a year that will long be remembered for all the wrong reasons. Granted, fans of competitive League have surely been entertained by these bombastic signings, so not all is grim. If this off-season is any indication, we should be in for one heck of a ride come 2021.
This off-season really had it all: brand-new superteams, old champions retiring, and baffling twists that no one saw coming. The last month has truly been a rollercoaster, and now with Rekkles signing for his perennial adversaries G2 (and reuniting with his old mid laner Rasmus “Caps” Winther in the process), it’s fair to say that the chaos will finally start to subdue.
Establishing a Dynasty
So what does this mean for G2 Esports? Well, in short, they’ve brought over the best and most capable AD carry Europe ever produced. That, in itself, is quite an upgrade. Losing Luka “Perkz” Perković is definitely a big blow, but it’ll no doubt be assuaged by this unexpected (and quite historic) signing. And G2 really deserves a huge shoutout for what they’ve done. They’ve essentially lost the second best mid laner in Western history and were still able to come out of the off-season as the biggest winners.
What absolute dominance.
Odds are, they won’t skip a beat come 2021. In fact, they should be even stronger. The sheer notion of G2 actually improving is quite frightening, and with Rekkles aboard, they’ll no doubt stand an even better chance of winning Worlds. Of course, the odds of that happening are quite low, but they exist nonetheless. If there’s one team that has the potential to upset the status quo and write a couple of pages of the history books, it has to be G2 Esports.
After all, that’s why Rekkles decided to ditch the boys in black and orange. It’s all about championships, trophies, and legacies, and with G2, all of these things become a lot easier to attain. In any case, 2021 can’t come soon enough!
