After being eliminated in the quarterfinals by Top Esports, Fnatic must already think about the next LEC season. But nevertheless, Rekkles and Hylissang end contract this year and they have yet to comment on their future. Although the exit of the Bulgarian could be important, it would not hurt as much as that of his companion in the bottom lane.
Rekkles’ departure from the European team would become a huge garage for the team, which would look pretty empty even if another shooter came. Let’s be clear the Swede has been and will be the history of Fnatic for everything he has given the club: Five European titles and four consecutive times to advance to the Worlds group stage plus a final in 2018 are, among other individual titles, what makes Rekkles be remembered by fans of League of Legends.
Reasons Rekkles could stay at Fnatic
The The main reason the shooter stays in the club is because of what it is for him. Remember that Rekkles has been with Fnatic since 2013, who came as a child prodigy and to be the Fnatic insignia for many years. And so it was, the Swede has left a big enough mark on Fnatic to go to another team. As with Totti in Roma, Kobe Bryant in Lakers or Faker in SKT T1, It’s about a flagship player for the franchise and that is why he wants to be born and die in the club that gave him everything.
Another reason that is linked to the previous one is the wanting to win something with Fnatic in order to leave them where they deserve before leaving. They are already several years behind G2 and finishing second in a world championship, so Rekkles could continue one more year to give it his all and leave Fnatic on top of the world before saying goodbye. Another reason could be the economic, since very few clubves could pay the cache and especially the economic comfort of the player, which is probably quite high.
NA’s age or money could cause you to leave or even retire
Although Rekkles is likely to stay at Fnatic, it could be the surprise of the year and his leaving. And is that so much time in one place can be tiring; the Swede might be thinking of changing of scene and try new challenges. Who knows, maybe next year we will see the shooter in the Ocelote outfit according to some rumors about Perkz and his return to the midlane in another team.
As of today, LPL0006 @UziRNG will officially retire. Uzi was not only the heart and soul of RNG, but also an icon in the esports world as a whole.

However, It should be remembered that Rekkles has been playing at the highest level for 24 years and what all this entails. Remember that Uzi had to retire this year at the same age Than the Swede for the problems that he was going to bring to continue playing that way. It would not be unreasonable to think that AD Carry would take the competition differently and end up as a substitute or assistant on the Fnatic staff next year. Although if you prefer to continue playing, You will always have the LCS available to, in addition to competing, earn a huge amount of money.
