G2 Esports has recently taken the first place in LEC Spring Split. However, they are soon heading into playoffs and will need some help. This is the reason we’ll soon see Promisq in G2 Esports, as it was recently announced.
G2 Esports’ player Mihael “Mikyx” Mehle is currently having some difficulties with wrist pain. Since the beginning of the year, Mihael was reporting the pain that effectively handicaps him in the game.
Time is not helping him either as the team says it’s only getting worse. Because of the issue, they said they reduced the scrim time with him and even freed him of his solo queue obligations completely.
This means they need someone to fill in the spot if they want to continue work. This is where Hampus Mikael “Promisq” Abrahamsson steps in for the kill.
The last time Promisq participated in a LEC championship was in 2018 with H2K Gaming. He is by no means a bad player but has not been in many successful teams to date. His previous experiences are working with Ninjas in Pyjamas and Paris Saint-Germain. With the latter, he fell short against Fnatic Academy at EUCS 2017 Spring Playoffs.
This is not such a good situation for the team. Changing your player in the last minute, as it’s the last week of the Spring Split may make them weaker. Players need to practice both their skills and communication with each other. With him hopping in on the last week, they don’t have much time.
So, no matter how bad the reason is, Misfits and Fnatic now have an excuse to take a breath. Both of these teams have must-win games against the affected team in the final week. G2’s current situation may be a big factor to help them achieve this.
