Martin “Rekkles” Larsson has been a fan favorite in the League of Legends scene for years, but his recent announcement that he would be switching to a support position came as a shock to many. Rekkles had been one of the most successful and popular AD carry players in Europe, and had plenty of offers from teams for the upcoming season. One of these was reportedly from Fnatic, who were interested in replacing their current support with Rekkles.
That move, however, never came to fruition. Whether it was due to negotiation issues or something else, it left many wondering what could have been had Rekkles taken on the role of Fnatic’s support. What kind of impact would it have made on the team’s playstyle? How would it have affected their performance throughout the summer split? It’s impossible to know, but it’s still fun to speculate.
One thing that is known is that Rekkles is still an incredibly talented player. He’s shown on multiple occasions that he has the mechanical skill to excel in any major role within the game. His ability to analyze the game and make quick decisions that benefit his team is unparalleled, and so it stands to reason that he would have been an excellent addition to the Fnatic roster.
Additionally, Rekkles has played with Fnatic in the past—albeit in the top lane—and would have likely adapted quickly to the new role. He already has a long-standing familiarity with the organization, which could have translated to better team synergy and in-game success. This would have been a major boon for Fnatic in their quest for another regional championship.
At the end of the day, it’s impossible to know what could have been if Rekkles had joined Fnatic as their support. However, it’s still an intriguing thought experiment to consider. The talent Rekkles possesses is undeniable, and it’s possible that a switch to support could have helped Fnatic reach even greater heights in the region. We can only sit and wonder what could have been.
