After leaving Fnatic earlier this week, Rekkles has found a new home at rival organizations G2 Esports.
It’s probably the biggest shock of the off-season, right behind Luka “Perkz” Perković leaving G2 to move to the LCS. Martin “Rekkles” Larsson, who spent the last six years at Fnatic, has finally called time on his Fnatic career as he moves to G2 Esports as their starting ADC.
While the move may seem like a shock, it was always the best option for both G2 Esports and Rekkles once it became clear that Perkz would look to head back to mid lane. Obviously, with Fnatic having approached G2 Esports about signing Perkz, who now looks set to join Cloud9, G2 Esports is the clear winner in this situation.
Thank you for the good times, @RekklesLoL.

Rekkles has spent a total of eight years with Fnatic, split over two periods with the organization and has picked up 26 first-place tournament finishes, playing 566 games and an impressive 6.6 KDA. At G2 Esports he’ll look to build on another impressive season in 2020 with a new roster and finally get himself some international silverware.
Now the pressure moves to Fnatic, who must replace their franchise man with a new player. With a mid laner still not confirmed, and though Tim “Nemesis” Lipovsek is still under contract, speculation has seen him linked with a move to the LCS the most likely outcome. Fnatic has at least confirmed support Zdravets “Hylissang” Iliev Galabov has signed a new deal, though we don’t know who his ADC will be.
The news of Rekkles signing now confirms G2 Esports’ roster for 2021, as they look to take yet more LEC titles in 2021.
