G2 Esports signed Martin "Rekkles" Larsson to its League of Legends roster after Luka "Perkz" Perković left and is rumored to be joining Cloud9. While the move has been teased for some time, G2 Esports waited until Friday to share the news with the public. Rekkles played with Fnatic three different times over his career including a five-year stint. This will be his first new team since 2015.

Both Fnatic and G2 Esports advanced to worlds 2020, but G2 Esports made it to the semifinals while Fnatic was knocked out in the quarterfinals. G2 Esports took a game off the eventual champions, giving LEC fans hope for the future, though it's going to take more than an ADC signing to dethrone DAMWON.

It's been a rather eventful offseason with players like Søren "Bjergsen" Bjerg retiring and becoming the coach for TSM. While the focus will always fall on the lackluster LCS, the LEC continues to shine and make headway internationally.
