LoL Rostermania Post-Worlds – Highlights
All changes in a rostermania are important, but some are highlighted more than others. In this rostermania, I’d personally say that Perkz going to Cloud9 and G2 acquiring Rekkles are the biggest moves out of all. G2 have been very close to winning the World Championship, and acquiring such an experienced and high level player like Rekkles might just do the trick. As for Cloud9, having a lot of success earlier in 2020, but slowly declining towards the end of the Summer Split has shown a lot of weaknesses for the team. Since then they have gone through an entire rebuilding process, changing coaches as well as core players. Perkz joining the squad will certainly have a positive impact and could be the missing puzzle for this talented roster.
UPDATE – 16/11/20 – Nisqy & Cloud9
The changes mentioned above, including the ones that were reported are certainly ones to look forward to. So make sure you keep yourself updated on www.esportsguide.com for more esports news!
