Jankos extends his 2-year contract with G2 Esports

Weeks after revealing their roster for the 2022 LEC season, G2 Esports has announced that their jungler Jankos has extended his contract for an additional 2 years.

At this rate, Jankos will end his career in G2 Esports

Being eliminated in the third round of the LEC Summer Split playoffs by Fnatic after a 3-1 loss, Caps and his teammates failed to make it to the Grand Finals of the Summer Season Qualifiers and did not qualify for the Championship. League of Legends World Cup 2021. These results of the last competitive segment are added to those obtained in the spring split, which makes the balance of the former European champion very heavy: this team has not only not won anything this year, but who will not participate in any international championship either. this year’s event.

For the first time since 2016, when the team officially joined the European Championship, G2 Esports did not attend the Worlds of League of Legends, despite what many described as a phenomenal transfer window following the signing of Rekkles. Hired to cover Perkz’s departure from Cloud9, the Swedish botlaner had made a good start to the season under G2 colors, but it wasn’t enough. The pill of this failure of the 2021 version is also struggling to get past Carlos “ocelote” Rodríguez Santiago. After results considered insufficient during the 2021 season, the management of G2 Esports had announced that the time had come to start a major project to rebuild the team, a project that must necessarily start with the sale of players qualified as weak links for the roster. . On October 11, Carlos “ocelote” Rodríguez Santiago presented in a video the different changes that would take place within the G2 Esports team, confirming the bench, and therefore a fortiori the departures, of Martin “Wunder” Nordahl, Martin ” Rekkles” Larsson, Mihael “Mikyx” Mehle, Fabian “GrabbZ” Lohmann, and Sng “Nelson” Yi-Wei.

After several weeks of speculative rumours, G2 Esports has confirmed its roster that will kick off the LEC Spring Split on January 14. Unsurprisingly, the 2022 edition G2 Esports lineup consists of Sergen “Broken Blade” Çelik (TSM and Schalke 04) in top lane, Marcin “Jankos” Jankowski in jungle, Rasmus “Caps” Winther in lane central, as well as Victor “Flakked” Lirola and Raphaël “Targamas” Crabbé in the botlane, respectively as transport and AD support. Regarding the midlaner of this G2 Esports team, the club management announced a few days later that he had renewed his contract for another 4 years. Recruited in November 2018 after two seasons under the colors of Fnatic, Caps is today considered one of the best European midlaners, having participated in two consecutive World Championship finals (in 2018 with Fnatic and in 2019 with G2 Esports), having won 5 European Championship titles, as well as the 2019 Mid-Season Invitational, returning to the midlane a few months later.

With the 2022 season kicking off in just over a week on Friday, January 14, G2 Esports announced last night that their jungler has also extended his contract, a two-year extension that allows the now 26-year-old Polish competitor. , to have some security in your professional career. During a recent interview with Cybersport, Jankos said that his future with the team was very uncertain for a while, he admitted that there was a possibility that he would not be part of the team next year, thus making it clear that at the beginning of the reflection put by Ocelote that all the players were more or less threatened, maybe less Caps. That time of doubt seems to have been left behind, even more so with this new contract extension.

Jankos and G2 Esports will return to Summoner’s Rift on January 14, kicking off Week 1 of the Spring Split regular season, a week under the banner of SuperWeek; the Samourais will face Excel, Astralis and MAD Lions in succession.
