Not long ago, G2 Esports (G2) surprised many fans when announcing the farewell to a series of players. Notably, among the names that will leave the “National Circus” is Jankos – the most veteran player of G2. Perhaps at the age of 27, Jankos is no longer part of the G2 Leadership Team’s plans. In addition to Jankos, names like Flakked or Targamas will also leave the team.
Jankos’ departure from G2 is sooner or later as the Jungler has not been able to maintain his top form in recent seasons. Many viewers also said that Jankos should have left G2 from the beginning of the 2022 season. However, he and caPs are the two players who were retained after a series of reforms. Jankos also had a great time in the 2022 season, but he and his teammates did not leave an impression at the World Finals (Worlds) 2022.
One difficult thing for Jankos is that at the moment, he is too old while most of the League of Legends teams in the world are choosing to rejuvenate the squad. Even in regions like the LCS, which is known for favoring “old men”, young players like Jojopyun are more respected. Particularly in the LEC, the opportunity for a player who is about to turn 28 like Jankos is almost gone.
Therefore, in a recent broadcast, Jankos received a question from the audience about finding opportunities in the LCS region. In response to this question, Jankos frankly shared: “I’m looking at opportunities with the LCS team. It’s hard to find a team in the LEC because most of them already have an agreement with the players. I think maybe it will. find the team there (LCS)” . Notably, in the past, Jankos has denied the possibility that he will go to North America to play.
For a seasoned player like Jankos, at the moment, he probably understands that international titles are too far away. The LCS has always been a favorite destination for older players and this choice is probably the best direction for all parties, especially when the transfer market at the end of the 2022 season is so close.
