G2 Esports got off to a good start to their 2022 LEC season, finishing the first two weeks 3-2. One of the most important changes in League of Legends The team in the offseason took place in the AD carry position, with Flakked replacing legendary Swedish AD carry Rekkles.
In an interview with Dot Esports earlier this week, Flakked mentioned pressure from Rekkles’ shoe filling, his prospects with G2 and some opponents to watch out for.
Flakked is optimistic about G2 as a team after the first weeks of the competition. G2 is “in a good position,” according to Flakked. “It is true that we need to improve a bit on some details,” he said, “but so far, it looks good.”
However, that doesn’t mean he doesn’t anticipate competition. Fnatic is his “beater,” and he considers the Hylissang-Upset duo to be the strongest bot lanes in the region. Flakked also said MAD Lions and Rogue have some “solid playstyle,” but Rogue is particular about their picks. “They have Corki, Viktor or Jinx in every game,” he said.
Despite pointing out which opponents to watch out for, Flakked doesn’t believe there is a single “best” team in the LEC. “It’s true that Fnatic are unbeaten, but they don’t have a match with super clean wins.”
Flakked thinks the ADC level in the LEC has dropped due to Rekkles and Hans Sama leaving the area. “It’s also true that a lot of rookies joined this year, and the fact that rookies tend to thrive in Europe,” he said. While it’s “pretty early” to judge someone’s level, Flakked thinks the new ADC AD carry will make good progress, but it will take time to see that happen.
Replacing Rekkles for G2 comes with its pressure on Flakked. Anyone joining G2 at the time — “except maybe Hans Sama” — would get bad comments “because they didn’t win last year,” he said. “You’ll always get hate, but this time, maybe just a little more.”
“Somehow, the audience was right,” Flakked said. “Although you don’t have to hate anyone, with the big AD team in Europe, I think they have every reason to criticize me or make me suspicious. Because it’s true that I haven’t won anything in my career, and my team’s results last season weren’t great either.”
Flakked said fans can expect “cleaner gameplay” from G2 in the coming weeks and some varied drafts in the bot lane— “in a way that is weirder than the Seraphine pick,” AD carry speak.
Fans can catch G2 as soon as next Friday, January 28, when G2 faces Misfits at 3pm CT.
