New top laner for G2

Esports Asia News
Mateusz “Kikis” Szkudlarek has left G2 Esports starting roster, the organization announced Sunday. According to G2, Kikis was unhappy sharing his role as top laner with Ki “Expect” Dae-han, who played in the second game of G2’s Week 2 series against Team ROCCAT. Kikis has started in the rest of of G2’s games this split. “After initially agreeing to a six-man roster for the Summer Split, Mateusz “Kikis” Szkudlarek tried to impose an early ultimatum that essentially forced us to choose between him and Ki “Expect” Dae-han for the top lane position altogether,” G2 stated in a press release. “We were not comfortable going against our word and agreement with Expect and the team, to let him live and practice with us in Berlin, by sending him home early. “For that reason alone, we decided to honor our commitment to Expect, and Kikis subsequently decided on his own to step down from the starting roster and put himself as a substitute player for the remainder of his contract – a decision we fully respect.” During the spring split, Kikis put up a 4.63 KDA across 18 games. During G2’s rough group stage run at the 2016 Mid-Season Invitational, Kikis put up a 1.59 KDA. The team finished first in the Spring Split and Spring playoffs, but fell to fifth at MSI after stating that they had not practiced for the tournament. In his first seven games of the season, Kikis put up a 4.63 KDA, mostly playing Irelia. He won all seven of those games. Expect played Irelia in one game this season, and picked up a 1.86 KDA in G2’s only loss of the summer split. Kikis joined G2 in July 2015, when the team was known was Gamers2, and helped the team qualify for the 2016 EU LCS Spring Split. Prior to that he played for the Unicorns of Love and SK Gaming Prime.
