Team Heretics Sign G2 Jankos for LEC 2023
Jankos has been with G2 Esports in the LEC for five years, and was very much synonymous with the team. Together with Caps he had become very much the public face of the team, especially after Carlos's departure.
Following a disappointing Worlds performance though, G2 decided it was time to rebuild the team, and for the upcoming season only Caps and BrokenBlade remain. Jankos was allowed to explore options in other teams.
Fortunately, Jankos was able to find a team, and has been added to the Heretics roster, as the final confirmed change of the LEC offseason. Jankos is a mainstay of the region, and his staying will do wonders for the competition level of the league.
Team Heretics LEC 2023 Roster
After building a new roster from the ground up, Heretics team looks like this:
- Top: Evi
- Jungle: Jankos
- Mid: Ruby
- Bot: Jackspektra
- Support: Mersa
The addition of Evi, from team DFM in the LJL is a very exciting one for the LEC. Evi's performance at Worlds showed us that he is among some of the best in the game, despite his region's underperforming.
Jackspektra and Mersa have both been retained but in different ways. Jackspektra has been brought up from Heretics' LVP roster, while Mersa has come over from the old Misfits lineup, from whom Heretics aquired their spot.
