The LEC 2021 season of League of Legends was one of the worst that G2 Esports had ever seen. They failed to qualify for Worlds 2021 after failing to reach the finals in the spring and summer splits.
While this may be acceptable in other organizations, it is not acceptable in G2, since Worlds qualification should be the minimum criterion. G2 and Fnatic are two of the most successful organizations in League of Legends, guaranteeing EU supremacy. On the international scene, both of these teams are torchbearers. While Fnatic continues to reign supreme, G2 has plummeted.
As a result, starting in season 2022, G2 Esports will be seeking to rebuild to guarantee that anything like this does not happen again.
Since G2 Esports' humiliating losses to Fnatic and MAD Lions, fans and experts have focused their attention on the specific problems affecting the team. They put up a super-team that included some of the finest players on the planet. They were, however, overwhelmed and outmatched by rookies, which has caused some consternation.
G2's CEO, Carlos Rodriguez, stated on the day of the defeat that they would restructure their League of Legends team for next season. This implies that no one is safe, save for their mid-laners Caps and ADC Rekkles. Rekkles is presumably safe since he's a mechanical wizard and this is his first season at G2. So it would be a mistake to kick him now. G2's top-laner Wunder and support Mikyx will be the main targets.
Wunder has been a target for many because of his lack of concentration and commitment to League of Legends. His preoccupation with World of Warcraft and lack of motivation to improve his talents have resulted in some dreadful results. Wunder has a reputation for a lot of trash-talking. He was, nevertheless, the greatest top-laner in the EU in 2019. He's only gotten worse after then, with 2021 being one of his worst years ever.
Mikyx, on the other hand, has been a disaster. Perkz's performance has plummeted after his departure. Several fans were upset to witness Mikyx being harassed by Fnatic's Hylissang and MAD Lions' Kaiser. At G2, Jankos has been the most reliable player. However, as he ages, the club may consider replacing him with someone younger.
Shotcalling is the most serious problem G2 has encountered in League of Legends. Perkz was the one that did this often. Rekkles and Mikyx, on the other hand, are cautious players. Caps is the standout carry, whereas Wunder has been a disaster. Jankos, on the other hand, isn't the greatest playmaker. As a result, the club has lost a captain capable of turning defeats into wins.
Players who can return G2 Esports to their former glory
Kaiser is one of the greatest League of Legends support players in the European Union right now. After Worlds 2021, his contract with the MAD Lions expires. He may be a possible Mikyx replacement. Kaiser is a clever player who can make crazy moves all over the board. His lane domination and placement make him a nightmare, and the way he engages in battles results in some ideal setups for the team. Kaiser on Rakan is one of the greatest in the LEC, and he could be a good match for Rekkles.
2) Broken Blade
Many people have suggested Broken Blade as a suitable alternative for Wunder. Schalke 04 had a terrible season and will be disbanded as a result of their last-place finish. As a result, Broken Blade is a free agent, and G2 Esports may take advantage of the situation. Along with Armut and Odoamne, he is one of the greatest top-planers in League of Legends. As a result, Broken Blade may be able to address G2's weak side issue, which has been caused by Wunder's poor performance.
Treatz is one of the finest support role alternatives for Mikyx. SK Gaming's Swedish League of Legends player, who was moved to the jungle in 2021, is secretly one of the EU's most knowledgeable support players.
Rekkles requires a lot of defense, and defensive support like Mikyx isn't much assistance. Mikyx struggles to comprehend how to continue since Rekkles, unlike Perkz, is not outspoken. Treatz can assist G2 win the bot-lane in League of Legends by resolving this problem and driving the lane with Rekkles.
G2 may also bring a change to Rekkles, as strange as it may seem. The chances are slim. There is, nevertheless, a possibility. If they do, Carzzy is unquestionably the best option. The MAD Lions' ADC isn't the team's most powerful player. He is, however, combative, and his collaboration with Kaiser has aided MAD on many occasions. If G2 chooses Kaiser, Carzzy may be brought in to totally overhaul the bot-lane.
As a player, Jankos has been very consistent. However, he is growing older, and G2 is no stranger to stealing Fnatic's top players. Bwipo has shown his ability to dominate games and offer early game aggressiveness, which has been notably lacking in G2. So, given his contract expires after League of Legends Worlds 2021, bringing in this 22-year-old jungler from Fnatic might be a master class.
Fnatic is unlikely to let Bwipo leave, while G2 is unlikely to take Jankos' position. If that does happen, though, G2 may go on to play some of the greatest League of Legends ever seen.
It's essential to keep in mind that all of these adjustments are contingent on the contract's expiration. Hylissang, Razork, and Selfmade will all be free agents as well. Given that G2 received Rekkles for free, Perkz's $5 million transfer to Cloud9 is still sitting in the bank.
So, if G2 wants to give these guys a lot of money, there's no way they'll be turned down. In any scenario, at least two of these guys will rebuild and make it to G2. Fans will have to wait till the preseason of League of Legends' LEC 2022 is released before they can play.
