According to what Jankos shared, he still has a contract with G2 Esports but will not be in the main squad of this team next summer and is allowed to look for a new “stop”.
A few weeks ago, the Western League of Legends community was talking about the issue of “Giang Van Cot” – Jankos left G2 Esports. But in a recent livestream, this player hinted that even though he is very talented, it is very difficult for any team to have enough “financial” to break G2’s contract and pay his salary. Because even if Jankos is allowed to contact other teams, his contract with G2 still runs until November 2023.
In the case of Jankos, this guy is having a lot of trouble finding a new stop at the European League of Legends Tournament. Even Jankos is at risk of unemployment next season when no LEC team has enough money to buy back his contract with G2.
“The agent just talked to me and the situation is not good at all. There are 5 teams in the LEC that want me to join but they all shake their heads and refuse when the amount to buy back my contract is too high. I feel similar. the future is murky.” – Jankos shared on stream.
G2 used to have a history of causing similar difficulties with former members such as Perkz, Rekkles, Mikyx, Hjarnan etc. Terms of transfer often include not hitting competitors for the championship directly; or the termination fee is high enough that no one wants to buy. For example, in the case of Rekkles, Rekkles’ contract termination fee is 1.5 million euros. If he had to sit on the bench for the next 2 years with only 6% salary.
For the same reason, “Giang Van Cot” has broadcasted as a streamer sharing the high possibility that no team in the LEC will be able to buy him. Jankos received questions from the audience about finding opportunities in the LCS region. In response to this question, Jankos frankly shared: “I am looking at opportunities with the team in the LCS. It’s hard to find teams in the LEC because most of them already have agreements with players. I think it’s possible to find a team there (LCS).”
At the moment, most of the teams in the LEC have found their own jungler. The only team that still has a vacant jungle position is Herotic, but this team has not made any move on recruiting Jankos.
