G2 Reportedly Looking to Sign Targamas, Broken Blade a “Done Deal”

by in League of Legends | Nov, 2nd 2021

If the rumor mill is to be believed, Raphaël “Targamas” Crabbé and Sergen “Broken Blade” Çelik will be joining G2 Esports as their starting support and top laner, respectively. There were many rumors of Broken Blade being tapped to replace Martin “Wunder” Hansen, but the news of Targamas being G2’s “first pick” is definitely a surprise!

Then again, he’s a two-time EU Masters champion and has been dominant beyond measure throughout his entire stint with Karmine Corp. So, in all fairness, he’s more than worthy of competing under G2’s banner. He wasn’t all that impressive back in 2018 when he first made his debut with Giants Gaming, but we really can’t fault him for it — it’s not like he was set up for success.

He has grown tremendously over the years and will surely put on a show come 2022.

And, well, the same goes for Broken Blade, an LCS champion who needs no introduction. His highs aren’t as impressive as Wunder’s, but what he might lack in mechanics or talent he more than makes up for in hard work and dedication, as evidenced by his stellar showing in North America and a ton of behind-the-scenes footage.

He’ll probably fit in with ease (in no small part because of his friendly nature), and if Targamas happens to be a good fit as well, G2 Esports will have all the right tools to compete for a spot near the very top of the standings.

There’s One Piece Missing

While the news of Targamas and Broken Blade joining G2 Esports is definitely enough to get our blood pumping, we still can’t help but wonder who’s going to fill in the void once the former “kings of Europe” part ways with Martin “Rekkles” Larssen.

This legendary Swede (and most recent MVP recipient) is surely a hot commodity right now, and the fact that we haven’t really heard anything about his next move means that he’s either going to take a break (less likely) or has already found a new team to call home but cannot make it official just yet.

With Matyáš “Carzzy” Orság going to Team Vitality, G2 Esports is probably working around the clock to bring in Steven “Hans Sama” Liv from Rogue and round out its roster in the best possible way. There’s really no other high profile marksman that would fit the bill (and G2’s high aspirations).

In any case, we’re bound to find out in just a few days!
