Swedish League of Legends player Martin “Rekkles” Larsson joins esports organization T1 in the League of Legends Champions Korea (LCK), taking on the role of support in T1’s Esports Academy for the LCK Challengers League (LCK CL).

Rekkles shared his journey from Europe to South Korea in an announcement video by T1. The video showcased him exploring the T1 Headquarters located in Seoul while introducing himself to those unfamiliar with him in the region.

“I know it’s gonna be a long road ahead,” he said in the video. “There is a new language, new culture, new teammates, a lot to learn, and a new role as well. It’s gonna be quite overwhelming for me in the beginning.”

Despite the challenges, Rekkles made a commitment to the learning process, assuring viewers that he aims to become “like any other team member” within a year or half a year.

He has participated in multiple European League of Legends Championship Series (EU LCS) and League of Legends European Championship (LEC) splits throughout his career.

Despite winning multiple LEC championships, he hasn’t achieved his ultimate goal of winning Worlds. The closest opportunity was in 2018 when Fnatic reached the Worlds finals against Invictus Gaming in Seoul.
