Benched for Friday's match against H2k Gaming
June 22, 2018
Rekkles has been put on the backburner in favor of Bwipo on Friday, Jacob Wolf of ESPN esports reports.
ANALYSIS
Rekkles is the latest victim of the current topsy-turvy meta that has been sweeping the professional League of Legends scene in the first couple of weeks of the Summer Split. With champions being played at just about any position these days, Fnatic has decided they don't need an ADC, at least for a game. Bwipo will be stepping into the bottom lane in place of Rekkles when they take face H2k Gaming on Friday afternoon. Whether this is a permanent change remains to be seen as the team is likely going to see how Bwipo does before making any long-term decisions.
To start over Rekkles
June 22, 2018
Bwipo will be starting in place of Rekkles when Fnatic takes on H2k Gaming on Friday, Jacob Wolf of ESPN esports reports.
ANALYSIS
In the continuing flurry that is the current League of Legends meta, Fnatic has decided to start their top laner in place of their ADC. It's somewhat surprising given that it means Rekkles, the perennial ADC will be on the bench, but it's not that surprising given the craziness we've already seen over the first couple weeks of the Summer Split. There's no word on how long this change will persist past their game on Friday.
Benched on active roster
May 28, 2018
Fnatic have announced that Lekr0 will be benched on the active roster to make way for Xizt.
ANALYSIS
The 24-year-old will be sent to the team's bench due to internal issues than a year after being brought back by Fnatic from GODSENT. His second spell with the team came as he helped Fnatic win IEM Katowice and the WESG World Finals. His final appearance for Fnatic came at IEM Sydney, where the Swedes finished 5-6th place. Fnatic announced in a statement that they are currently exploring options for Lekr0 and thanked the plater for his service to the organization.
