G2 Esports owner ocelote angers Fnatic fans with Rekkles tweet
Ocelote is known for his sense of humor and memes on Twitter, but this time he took it a bit too far in the eyes of Fnatic fans. On Wednesday, ocelote quoted Counter-Strike: Global Offensive analyst Jacob "Pimp" Winneche and tagged Martin "Rekkles" Larsson without any more context.
“Take it from someone who has had his fair share of attitude problems while playing at the highest level; get over yourself and fix it. Knock it inside your head before it’s too late. There’s nothing worse than a counterproductive attitude, for you, your teammates, and your org,” read the Tweet by Pimp.
While some followers admire the “savage” attitude from ocelote, others questioned the need for such comment, particularly Fnatic’s fans.
The fans considered the tweet a personal attack, toxic, and uncalled for.
“If you have something to say to anyone just DM him or go and talk to him. I like you and all but I’m not following this one. Should apologize tbh,” wrote a fan on Twitter.
In the replies, some fans asked for more context and questioned if Rekkles has a bad attitude as the tweet implies. It reignited the conversation about Fnatic and Rekkles, there have been rumors about the player’s attitude towards his teammates and lack of cooperation behind the scenes.
Allegedly, Rekkles’ toxic behavior is common knowledge in the some circles of the LoL community and it all started back in 2018 when the player was benched. At the time, Fnatic clarified that it was Rekkles’ decision, but according to rumor, that story had two sides.
Of course, these are all rumors and speculations from fans without any true insight. However, there have been some instances when the team didn’t look as strong as expected.
Ahead of the summer split, the team added a new jungler to the roster and Mads "Broxah" Brock-Pedersen clearly was not happy about it. At the time, the player wrote a message to fans in which he admitted to be dealing with a lot of frustration due to the team’s decision.
Neither Rekkles nor Fnatic replied to ocelote’s tweet.
