G2 statement on League of Legends team

G2 Esports would like to announce that Mateusz “Kikis” Szkudlarek has stepped down from our League of Legends starting roster, with Ki “Expect” Dae-han taking over as our new starting top laner. Read on for our full statement.

G2 Esports would like to announce that Mateusz “Kikis” Szkudlarek has stepped down from our League of Legends starting roster, which means that Ki “Expect” Dae-han will be the starting top laner from week 3 onwards. Below you can read our statement in regard to this situation:

“After initially agreeing to a six-man roster for the Summer Split, Mateusz “Kikis” Szkudlarek tried to impose an early ultimatum that essentially forced us to choose between him and Ki “Expect” Dae-han for the top lane position altogether. We were not comfortable going against our word and agreement with Expect and the team, to let him live and practice with us in Berlin, by sending him home early.


Ki “Expect” Dae-han is our new starting top laner

“For that reason alone, we decided to honor our commitment to Expect, and Kikis subsequently decided on his own to step down from the starting roster and put himself as a substitute player for the remainder of his contract – a decision we fully respect. We would like to thank Kikis for his service to the club over the last 11 months as a starting player, during which he helped the team to qualify for LCS and win the Spring Split playoffs.

“This means that Expect is our new starting top laner from week 3 onwards, and we would like to ask our fans to support him in this journey as we look to defend our LCS title.”
