Repeating historical past?
We dwell in a world the place Perkz doesn’t play for G2 anymore and Rekkles doesn’t play for Fnatic. That appears loopy however it’s truly very comprehensible. Rekkles’ dream has and all the time will likely be to win Worlds. He has tried that with Fnatic a number of occasions however all the time got here quick. G2 has cemented themselves as the brand new powerhouse of Europe and probably the most aggressive Western crew on the worldwide stage. We all know Rekkles made such a roster transfer earlier than and it didn’t prove nice. Allow us to see if it can work out this time.
5. Rekkles returns to Fnatic
Rekkles made it noticeably clear that he was right here to remain. From the beginning he confirmed a dominant playstyle, however he was additionally in a position to be the silent carry for his crew. Fnatic, having good outcomes with the Swedish marksman, knew that Rekkles was about to grow to be the brand new face of the organisation. After which Alliance occurred. Alliance joined the EU LCS as the brand new tremendous crew and was in a position to win all the things and be the primary EU seed at Worlds (solely to get Kabuumed in teams).
Rekkles noticed the success of Alliance and determined to hitch them and depart Fnatic. This didn’t prove as an excellent alternative as Alliance struggled the following cut up with Rekkles within the botlane. It was not as a consequence of Rekkles’ efficiency, however extra in order that the EU scene was not prepared for a crew with so many ego’s and abilities. All of them had one other method on methods to play the sport and it didn’t work out. Rekkles knew that Alliance was about to implode and re-joined Fnatic to ultimately grow to be their long-lasting marksman and face of the organisation. The return marked the start of a protracted profession underneath the Fnatic banner.

Nonetheless, as a consequence of age restrictions, he was not in a position to play within the newly fashioned League. This made his first sport much more anticipated and the pay-off was large. Dealing with Russian powerhouse Gambit he ended the sport 8/0/9 on Jinx. Speak about a great impression.
3. Rekkles & Hylissang – performing in opposition to TES
Should you assume again to Worlds 2020 you would possibly assume that Europe didn’t carry out too nicely. However having the angle of anticipating extra from our groups is nice and can solely push us to do higher on the worldwide stage. Nonetheless Fnatic nearly made the upset occur and went the complete 5 video games in opposition to High Esports, one of many high contenders for a spot within the finals. Each Rekkles and Hylissang performed such a great sequence that TES needed to utterly draft round it. They needed to play away from the botlane since Fnatic was dominating it. This exhibits that even after enjoying for years, Rekkles remains to be very hungry for that worldwide title.
2. FNC vs OG – Rekkles Pentakill
Allow us to take you again in time. Patches had been simpler, Irelia wanted to be nerfed and each Fnatic and Origen dominated Europe. In 2015 they confronted one another in a much-anticipated remaining between the 2 powerhouses. The finals came about in Sweden, the place Rekkles is from, and was remarkably shut. In sport three, all appeared dire for Fnatic as they simply threw their lead and Origen pushed their benefit to Fnatic’s base.
Then Rekkles discovered a gap and began hitting the Origen squad together with his Tristana choose. With the buffs from Lulu he rapidly discovered his first kill and he was ramping as much as kill all of Origen. After chasing them down from their inhibitor all the best way down mid to the opposite aspect of the map, he lastly picked up a pentakill in his dwelling nation on Europe’s largest stage. A sport to recollect!

We bear in mind FNC Rekkles as a really emotional pushed participant, however not one to again down from a battle. Even when all odds are stacked in opposition to him he’ll give it his greatest. We noticed this come to fruition at Worlds 2017. Fnatic didn’t have the most effective run in week 1, happening 0/3 for the primary video games. All analysts and casters wrote them off as they felt like FNC was battling the patch or internally. When week 2 got here round and FNC misplaced their first sport, setting them again to a 0/4 file, it appeared set in stone that they might not advance.
However a miracle run occurred. Rekkles rallied up his troops and so they fought again one final time. They might ultimately make it out, however it was o so shut. Successful their first sport in opposition to Immortals as revenge for the primary week, they had been feeling it. They might go on to drive a tiebreaker and simply barely make it out of teams. Though their run after teams was quick, this confirmed that Rekkles by no means gave up. We felt his tears in defeat and we shared his pleasure in victory.
