Martin “Rekkles” Larsson is currently considered to be one of the League of Legends best AD carries in the world, and over and over again he has proven that he truly is the best. However, even though things seemed to go in the right way for Rekkles in the professional sense, he has never been very outspoken about his private life.
This has changed recently. His team, Fnatic, has not been in good form and during their last tournament, they were defeated by ROCCAT 2-1 after which Rekkles reacted in a rather unexpected fashion.
During the break in the season, Fnatic replaced the entire roster except for one player and that player was Martin ‘Rekkles’ Larsson. With his contribution to the previous achievements of the team, Larsson deserved to be part of the new Fnatic team. Since the return from the break, even Rekkles was under criticism for poor performance.
However, after the defeat against ROCCAT and before Fnatic faced Unicorns of Love, Rekkles decided to speak his mind with his fans on Twitter. In a series of tweets, Rekkles revealed that he has been having personal problems in the last couple of months and that those issues were the main reasons behind his subpar performances as of late.
Personal Martin Larsson Drama?
Martin ‘Rekkles’ Larsson is one of the most respected players when it comes to the League of Legends, and everyone was surprised by how bad he has been performing not knowing what kind of drama Rekkles is going through in his personal life. However, one of his tweets caused a lot of attention and concern among the fans.
In that tweet, Rekkles admitted that he would take a break from competitions and from the social media as well in order to seek the help of the therapist. The mental health is not something that should be taken lightly, and it took a lot of courage from Rekkles to come out with that story and to admit what kind of problems he has been living through.
Right before he announced that he’d be taking a break, there was a talk about him signing a new three-year contract, but he also decided to put that on hold because he did not want for his team to suffer because his lack of ability to give his best. Since he appeared on the League of Legends scene, he has been in the eye of the public and under great pressure. For young players, this can have severe consequences. Seeking help when you need it is not something to be ashamed of, and Rekkles needs to be praised for the steps he is taking.
We often forget that those players are real people and that they have problems as well, and Rekkles deserves nothing but respect for what he has done. Not only will he help himself with this move but others who feel that they need help might follow in his footsteps because there is nothing more important than health. In the end, all we can do is wish Rekkles all the best and speedy recovery for he will definitely be missed while on the break.
