G2 Esports AD carry Martin "Rekkles" Larrson has been awarded the 'Most Valuable Player' title for the 2021 League of Legends European Championship Series Spring Split. The 24-year-old created history as he became the only player in the history of competitive European League of Legends to get four MVP awards.

Rekkles get the MVP award ahead of Inspired and Odoamne

The 24-year-old has put up some brilliant performances during this spring. Rekkles registered a KDA of 12.6 across G2’s 18 games which was by far the highest among all players in LEC. To add to it, he also had an impressive DPM of 574. These mind-boggling numbers would have been the reason that he got the edge over his close competitors Inspired and Odoamne, who finished second and third, respectively.

Bitter-sweet moment for Rekkles

While it would have been a delightful moment for the Swedish Esports player to win another MVP title, the announcement came on the back of G2 getting eliminated from LEC title contention after a shocking 3-1 defeat at the hands of Rogue. While Rekkles did post a KDA of 6.2 across the four-game set, it wasn't enough as he gets set to miss his first international event since MSI 2017.
