G2 Esports has announced their AD Carry for the upcoming 2021 season. Martin "Rekkles" Larsson will be starting in the team’s Bot Lane after the departure of the team’s most iconic player, Luka “Perkz” Perković.
“With time, the game change. My life changed. But my goal has always stayed the same: to stand on the biggest stage, at the biggest tournament, lifting the biggest trophy, with the world watching. [...] Maybe you thought I’d stay in Fnatic forever, but I am ready for a new challenge and grateful for everything you’ve given me. I promised I would win Worlds. And I will”, said Larsson in his announcement video.
The move comes after to the surprise of many, Rekkles announced to be a Free Agent, following leaked information about Cloud9 reportedly buying our Perkz from his contract with G2 Esports.
Rekkles was considered the face of Fnatic's brand, being part of the team for nearly seven years of his career. To many, it is a shock that the player will not be retiring under the team's flag.
