The G2 Esports 2022 lineup has a nice mix of veterans and rising stars looking to reclaim the organization’s glory.
Earlier in the year, G2 Esports made it clear that big changes were coming to their LEC roster for 2022. They had a disappointing season, and with rumors of struggles in the team, things were on edge. But after a long wait, fans finally know who will be representing the black and white in 2022.
As per the announcement, G2 Esports' 2022 starting LEC roster will be:
- Top: Sergen "Broken Blade"Çelik
- Jungle: Marcin "Jankos" Jankowski
- Mid: Rasmus "Caps" Borregaard Winther
- ADC: Victor "Flakked" Lirola
- Support: Raphaël "Targamas" Crabbé
Old faces and fresh blood alike in G2 Esports' 2022 LEC roster
As expected, most of the roster did change from the 2021 season. Only Caps and Jankos remain from that iteration. Caps is still considered among many to be one of the best mid laners in Europe, so this was natural. On the other hand, Jankos is a fantastic team player and supportive member, so is easy to build around.
That's important because two fresh-faced ERL talents have found themselves on the storied organization. First off is Targamas, who has made a splash this year. In 2021, he played with French organization Karmine Corp, who absolutely dominated the LFL. In addition, they won EU Masters and set themselves as the best ERL team of all.
Targamas was a huge part of KC's success and was a huge prospect this offseason. With his aggressive champion pool, he'll definitely be a player to watch when he makes his debut in the LEC.
Also joining from an ERL is ADC Flakked. Flakked is coming up from the Spanish regional league, where he previously played with MAD Lions Madrid. Recently, he and his former team had an impressive Iberian Cup performance, making it all the way to the finals. He'll be more than eager to test his mettle against the top ADCs in the LEC.
Last but certainly not least is Broken Blade. With Schalke 04's departure from the league, Broken Blade was a top free agent. With an ever-growing history of success in the TCL, LCS and LEC, he fits in perfectly with G2. There's no doubt he'll be hungry for championships and World Championship qualifications with his new squad.
Overall, this 2022 G2 Esports LEC roster looks solid. With veterans and rookies alike, they already look like a top contender for when LEC 2022 gets underway!
