Backstabbed By The One Who I Loved Most

Backstabbed By The One Who I Loved Most

“Who knew a storm would come and break apart this lie?” I mean, I’m sure Martin "Rekkles" Larsson and G2 Esports did, pretty early in the transfer period, if not sooner. The LEC’s latest track “Reckless with my heart” hit a little different when it dropped last Wednesday, but for all the right reasons:
 

  • Fnatic were sitting in the middle of the pack, struggling with their new roster.
  • G2 were performing well but had just dropped their first game against Schalke.
  • Fnatic and G2 were playing with their new rosters for the first time.

Although internet trash-talking rose to a new level for Fnatic and G2’s sixty-second clash, it’s important to appreciate just how well the LEC puts content together. There is no other league, in my mind at least, that gets the on-screen talent to perform a song composed in-house for just one group stage game.

The tune features an outrageous number of esports and League of Legends lore references, from Rekkles’ six games as Garen paired with Zdravets “Hylissang” Galabov’s Yuumi, to the true damage of his betrayal piercing any and all armour. Just to satisfy all the people who are desperately waiting for Genius Lyrics to start adding notes and references to all these lines, here are the others that I spotted:

  • “And when your tear is full stacked” refers to the Tear of the Goddess, which can have up to four stacks of Mana Charge, granting bonus mana every time an enemy is hit with an ability.
     
  • “They benched you that one split” harks back to Summer 2018, when Gabriël “Bwipo” Rau played the AD Carry role while Rekkles’ entire champion pool was half the world away from the meta. Rekkles actually benched himself in Summer 2018, but I’m not going to let the truth get in the way of a good story.
     
  • “I know that you’ll come crawling back” could be a reference to Rekkles’ short stint at Elements - the team placed seventh in the 2015 EU LCS Spring split, after which Rekkles immediately returned to Fnatic. It might be a little too farfetched to say a repeat of history is likely with Rekkles’ contract extending through to 2023, but I’m sure doubts will be crossing his mind as G2 falls to third in the table.
     

The reaction to the song was overwhelmingly positive, with Vedius, Drakos and Ender likened to Bullet For My Valentine and My Chemical Romance by the FNATIC and G2 official accounts.

Welcome to the LEC parade

- G2 Esports
 

Rekkles one-word comment “banger” has gathered over thirty thousand likes, and Marcin "Jankos" Jankowski showed his approval with his comment - “honestly it’s golden.”

Fnatic have since got their "revenge for the wound that you can't see", and G2’s salty loser tears are starting to pool in the comments section. Rekkles has been radio silent since February 5, and other players on the G2 side have complained about packet loss issues...

Only time will tell if the loss was entirely down to those internet gremlins, or if G2 is on the brink of capitulation. The LEC continues on Friday from 4pm, when G2 takes on eighth-placed Misfits.
