Bjergsen on Jankos Leaving G2 Esports: “G2 is Traditionally Really Fast at Making Things Happen”
One of the biggest pieces of news to have stemmed from the results of Worlds 2022 is G2 Esports making changes to its roster heading into the 2023 season. The western teams had a heartbreaking showing at the tournament. G2 Esports, one of the best teams from the League of Legends European Championship (LEC), exited the tournament after a disappointing performance at the Group Stage where it went 1-5. Following this, G2’s jungler Marcin "Jankos" Jankowski confirmed on 22nd October that he was leaving the team. Jankos had been a part of G2 Esports since December 2017 and played a crucial role in all its successes.
The League of Legends community extended its support to Jankos after he announced his departure and many pro players and analysts also commended the player. Søren "Bjergsen" Bjerg was one among the many that reacted to the development.
Bjergsen talks about G2 Esports' roster decisions
On a recent stream, Bjergsen gave his two cents about the way G2 Esports deals with roster changes and how it manages its off-season. He said that the Jankos announcement was pretty crazy. “G2 is so fast. I feel like they come into the off-season, they already know what they’re gonna do and they just let people go right away. They don’t f*** around. They’re just, ‘Okay, we’re not keeping you, you’re out.’ Or maybe he left actually,” he said.
Bjergsen added, “G2 is traditionally really fast at just making things happen. Making fast roster moves.”
Jankos makes his announcement
Jankos made the announcement that he is moving on from G2 Esports on his YouTube channel. He was all praise for his 2022 teammates and talked about how amazing it was playing alongside them. “Wherever I end up, if I really want to give my best for the last couple of years I have left in me, it would be good for me to play with different players, maybe under a different organization. Just to try something else,” he noted.
Following this, when he was streaming on Twitch, a viewer asked him if he would be trying out for other organizations. To this , “Okay, this may sound very cocky. But do you think I need to try out for teams? Either a team wants me or they don’t. You know what I mean? Especially the half of Europe right now, half of the LEC teams, has my ex-teammates in them.” He talked about all his former teammates who are in different teams currently. “So I could try out, right? It’s just not much to try out. You can see how I play on stage and you know my comms as well,” he added.
