Time to Talk, produced in partnership between kia Motors and DBLTAP, follows Martin “Rekkles” Larsson and his father, Jorgen Larsson, as they drive around Berlin in a KIA Stinger to discuss Rekkles’ life and League of Legends career.
Rekkles, considered by many to be one of the best AD Carries in League of Legends’ competitive history, talked about his upbringing and his father’s support of his professional career.
“I only was allowed to play games after I did school properly and after I did my training, sports, gym properly,” Rekkles said. “It kind of made it feel more secure because I knew that even if I were not to succeed, I could still continue with my life as if nothing happened.”
His father opened up about how he encouraged his son throughout the early parts of his career and important moments raising his son. He details always attending a major final his son is playing in and other family traditions. The heartwarming video shows off the relationship between father and son, which goes deeper than what esports viewers are used to seeing.
