With the start of the LEC quickly approaching we are thrilled to announce that the remaining kings have been united as we have re-signed our existing League of Legends star players on new long-term contracts.
After recently transitioning to the AD carry position, Luka ‘Perkz’ Perkovic has signed a new 3-year contract. As a player on G2 Esports, Perkz has made a name for himself as one of the greatest competitors in League of Legends history. His skill level is among the top players internationally, but his passion for his team sets him on a tier above the rest. Perkz does whatever it takes to win and will not rest until he’s satisfied.
Our jungler, Marcin ‘Jankos’ Jankowski, has signed a new 2-year contract. Since beginning his career, Jankos has become known as one of the best junglers in all of Europe. Even when he’s playing unorthodox champions such as Braum jungle, the “first-blood” king’s aggressive playstyle always has a major impact on the map.
Martin ‘Wunder’ Hansen has also signed a new 3-year contract. Since joining the LEC in 2016, Wunder has consistently been regarded as one of the strongest top laners and has been named to the 1st All-Pro Team 3 times. At Worlds 2018, Wunder outplayed the best top laners from all around the world and his versatile play style was crucial to the team’s deep run.
In addition, we welcome Simon ‘Thebausffs’ Hofverberg to G2 Esports as a sub on a one-year contract. Thebausffs is an avid Twitch streamer known in Grandmaster for his AD Sion plays. His natural skill and eagerness to learn make him the perfect fit for our sub position, and we’re thrilled to have him joining us.
Regarding these exciting roster updates, G2 Esports Head of Gaming Development Jamie Bach said:
“One of our main goals going into the new season and the revamped European league, was to further strengthen our relationship with our existing lineup and continue our legacy of competitive success. It is with great pleasure that we can announce that our existing core players in Perkz, Wunder and Jankos have shown their commitment towards our joint mission by signing new long-term contracts. In turn, we will continue to do everything in our power to support them on their journey towards our first LEC trophy and beyond. Also a big welcome to Simon aka ‘Thebaus’, who will be serving as our new substitute for the season!”
As shown through their top tier play and attitude in and out of game, Perkz, Jankos, Wunder, and Thebausffs all perfectly embody what it means to be representatives of the G2ARMY. We could not be happier that they will be with us and are looking forward to seeing all that they accomplish. With the recent additions of Caps, Mikyx, and Thebausffs, and the re-signing of Perkz, Jankos and Wunder, we believe that this is our strongest and most exciting roster yet.
We cannot wait to take to the rift on January 18th for the first League of Legends European Championship season and we look forward to your continued support in 2019. As always, don’t forget to follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Twitch and YouTube.
