The famous LEC team, G2 Esports, have parted ways with their top-class top laner Martin “Wunder” Nordahl Hansen.
G2 Esports have dominated Europe for a long time until this year. Luca “Perkz” Perkovic’s departure put the team in a worse spot as their championship streak came to an end. After failing to lift the trophy for two splits in a row, G2 Esports have decided to make roster changes for the upcoming LEC season. At first, Martin “Rekkles” Larsson left the team to join LFL’s Karmine Corp. Today, the team have announced that they have parted ways with their top laner Wunder.
Wunder has been playing for G2 Esports since LEC 2018 Spring Split. With him in the top lane, and Marcin “Jankos” Jankowski in the jungler position, G2 had arguably the strongest top side in the league. Wunder won four LEC championships between 2019-2020 and an MSI trophy back in 2019. On top of that, he reached the Worlds 2018 Semifinals, Worlds 2019 Finals, and Worlds 2020 Semifinals once again. He never won a Worlds trophy.
After letting Perkz go, G2 signed Rekkles but couldn’t really find what they were looking for. The team missed both MSI, and Worlds in 2021. As the season came to an end, they decided to keep Jankos, and their star mid laner Rasmus “Caps” Borregaard Winther and let others leave. Firstly, Rekkles left the team and joined Karmine Corp. Today, Wunder has also left G2 to join a different team.
According to rumors, Wunder might join Fnatic in the upcoming days. G2’s roster hasn’t been confirmed yet but it is rumored that Sergen “Broken Blade” Çelik will replace Wunder on the roster. These are just rumors and G2 Esports may pick up another player in the future. These questions will be answered in the upcoming days as the teams start making announcements.
