League of Legends star Marcin ‘Jankos’ Jankowski revealed his thoughts behind G2 Esports’ journey at Worlds 2019.

League of Legends’ World Championship event came to an end on November 10, with FunPlus Phoenix taking home the crown after a decisive 3-0 victory over G2.

The event broke Twitch viewership records with millions of fans from around the world tuning in for the grand final, which was a lot more competitive than the one-sided scoreline shows.

Players of both teams have touched on the event, however, G2’s jungler Jankos is one of the first to share his in-depth thoughts on the event.

G2 Esports made it all the way to the final at Worlds 2019.

The Pole released a video on November 13, where he spoke about Worlds, his future plans and the state of G2. Much to the surprise of fans, he was brutally honest and revealed some unexpected information. 

“I think the year was good for us… we dominated Europe, won the Mid-Season Invitational and got to the Worlds final. We showed we are one of the best.” he said, highlighting how solid the year was for the team and promising fans they will be going for the Worlds title next year.

Jankos then revealed his thoughts behind the final itself, stating that as a team G2 “couldn’t beat FPX unless we changed our fundamentals.” Citing their greedy playstyle as a core problem that was punished by the Chinese.

Another key difference he noted between the two teams was the level of teamwork. He claimed that the FunPlus Phoenix squad have impeccable teamwork, which they used to tear G2 apart, especially the jungler and support.

The Polish player then conceded that FPX were better and deserved the win, saying “what can I say? They were better… they deserved the trophy.”

However, he didn’t give up on G2. Jankos explained that they will stick together and come back stronger for next year. Stating that the team believes they are capable of winning the Worlds title and will be coming for it in 2020.
