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.

Riot GamesG2 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.

After the departure of star LoL player Rekkles from the Fnatic bot lane, the black and orange LEC Gods have finally announced his replacement: Astralis’ Upset. 

The LEC has certainly seen a shake up this year. With Luka ‘Perkz’ Perković leaving to join Cloud9 across the pond, a spot on the G2 roster opened up.

This was quickly filled by Martin ‘Rekkles’ Larssen, the former face of Fnatic, the team’s fans were wondering who would be his replacement. It’s big shoes to fill considering the legacy that Rekkles has left in the Fnatic jersey, so who has chosen to step up to the plate?

With LEC fans debating between Elias ‘Upset’ Lipp and Juš ‘Crownshot’ Marušič the race was on to see who Fnatic would sign.

Fnatic sign Astralis ADC Upset

When Crownshot announced that he would not be playing in any League of Legends tournament this year, fans were pretty certain that Upset would be the future ADC for the black and orange legends.

Therefore, when Fnatic announced Upset as ADC earlier today fans may not have been shocked, but they’re certainly excited to know who hold the future of the Fnatic botlane.

Upset has been a constantly high performing player ever since his days with Schalke 04. Taking what many believed to be a step up when he joined Origen (now Astralis) last season, Origen’s disappointing performance in the second split meant that roster readjustments were clearly needed.

With the ADC position being the least of Origen’s worries, it was pretty clear that Upset would be looking for a more competitive team to carve out his future with.

Will he be able to challenge the dynasty that Rekkles has left in his wake, or will he forever be caught in the Swedish legend’s shadow? Only time will tell, but we know Upset’s going to work extra hard to make his name sit side by side with the former Fnatic bot laner.
