At the last transfer window, Jankos’ departure from G2 Esports was a remarkable “breakup”. Before leaving, Jankos has been with G2 for 5 years and has always been associated with the image of this team. Many viewers were surprised when Jankos announced his departure in October 2022.

It is worth mentioning here that it was not until December 2022 that Jankos was announced to join Team Heretics. For about a month after leaving G2, Jankos only played League of Legends on the air. Many people couldn’t help but wonder why Jankos announced the new stop so late.
Immediately after winning against Astralis in LEC Winter 2023, Jankos received the same question. In response to this issue, Jankos has hinted at G2 Esports intentionally “detaining the contract” and preventing him from joining a strong team.

“A lot of things happened in the transfer window with different plans. At the end of October, I was unable to leave G2 because of contractual obligations. By December, my only option was Team Heretics. Even so, the new teammates are all great and we are trying our best.” – Jankos shared.

Although joining Team Heretics is “reluctant” for Jankos, he and his teammates are still playing extremely well. This team is having a 1 win – 1 loss difference with a great chance of reaching the top 4 of the LEC Winter 2023. Who knows, Jankos and Team Heretics will become a “dark horse” in this year’s 2023 season.
