The League of Legends European Championship (LEC) has announced its broadcast talent ahead of the 2022 summer finals in Malmö, Sweden. Amid familiar faces, AD carry Martin “Rekkles” Larsson makes an unexpected but much-acclaimed appearance.
Seriously. Check the replies to this tweet:
Rekkles reunites with former teammate Broxah on broadcast
Although Rekkles has not played in the LEC since the 2021 playoffs, he has been busy in France’s Ligue Française de League of Legends (LFL) and in the sponsorship department, as he recently secured a Nike endorsement.
His LEC broadcast return marks a reunion as his former teammate on Fnatic between 2017 and 2019, Mads “Broxah” Brock-Pedersen, has made waves on the broadcast team lately and will be part of the finals. Here’s to hoping that Broxah will set Rekkles up for success as he did during their Fnatic days—within broadcast interactions instead of ganks this time.
Frankie Ward joins stacked LEC crew at Malmö’s 2022 summer finals
The two pros won’t even be the main draw of the broadcast team, which is as follows:
- Eefje “Sjokz” Depoortere
- Trevor “Quickshot” Henry
- Frankie Ward
- Mikkel Guldborg
- Laure “Bulii” Valée
- Daniel Drakos
- Aaron “Medic” Chamberlain
- Marc “Caedrel” Lamont
- Andrew “Vedius” Day
- Rekkles and Broxah
As is, beyond Broxah ganking Rekkles on broadcast, one should expect the following at Malmö:
- Banter. Lots of banter.
- MediVedi on broadcast (this one deserves its own bullet point)
- Major excitement on Twitter as Quickshot reminds us that it’s #LEC FINALS DAY. Wait for it.
- A reference to Caedrel canceling something, not sure what that one is about…
- Drakos rapping on stage? One can hope!
- Laure interviewing the winners and (potentially) losers of each game, and representing the OTP crew
- Guldborg provides tales of his people one hour away from home (there’s a long bridge between Malmö and Copenhagen, Denmark)
- “It starts with”—actually, awesomeness as Frankie and Sjokz are reunited on a broadcast.
- Hopefully no pauses, but Fnatic are playing, and two former Fnatic players are on air.
