Martin "Rekkles" Larsson is the ADCarry Icon.png AD Carry for Fnatic.

Biography

Rekkles was born on September 20th, 1996 in Sweden.

League of Legends Career

He started his eSports career in 2012, and played for League of Legends teams Playing Ducks, PAH, Team BLACK (as a substitute) and SK Gaming. In November 2012 he joined Fnatic as their starting Marksman. Rekkles' young age has limited him however, when it prevented him from being able to play in the 2013 EU LCS for Fnatic. Because he could not take part in the LCS, a secondary Fnatic squad, Fnatic.Beta, was created around him. However, the team was disbanded after a few months. In May 2013 he started playing together with YoungBuck, Shook v2, cowTard, and Unlimited as PrideFC, and after the team got signed by Copenhagen Wolves, he agreed to continue playing with them as a stand-in. Together Fnatic decided that it will be best for him to rejoin the roster in the 2014 Season due to him not being eligible to play until after the group stage.[1]

On November 22nd in 2013, Rekkles officially retook the starting Marksman position from puszu.[2]

Season 4
During the 4th season, Rekkles and Fnatic participated in the IEM Season VIII - World Championship, and ended up second place after losing to KT Rolster Bullets during the Grand Finale.

At the beginning of 2014 season Spring Split, Rekkles played very well and received the MVP prize weekly. Fnatic had won each of their four superweek games, and this was mainly due to the great performance of Rekkles playing Jinx. They ended the Spring split in 2nd place, losing to SK Gaming, but secured themselves a spot in the Spring Playoffs. The whole team raised their game for the playoffs, and they emerged victorious after a win against Alliance in their semifinals matchup, and against SK Gaming in the Grand Final.

Due to Fnatic's great performance during the Spring Playoffs, they had qualified to compete at All-Star Paris 2014, along with other regional winners from around the world. The team made it to the semifinals of the tournament, losing to the world champions at the time, SK Telecom T1 K.

Fnatic endured a rocky start during the beginning of the Summer Split. They could not make it into the top 2 until Week 7 of the Split, while their main rivals Alliance were already at considerable distance ahead of them in the race for 1st place. Throughout the games, Rekkles managed to impress with his plays with Lucian and Vayne, picking up the Weekly MVP Award for Week 9. Although in the end, Fnatic could only manage a 2nd place finish. The team aimed to put the Split behind them and focused on the Summer Playoffs. The team beat ROCCAT in the semifinals, and had to battle against Alliance in the finals. The match ended in defeat for Fnatic, but the Playoffs saw the team seal their qualification for the 2014 Season World Championship.

Fnatic was placed in Group C along with LMQ, OMG and Samsung Blue, and only managed 2 wins in their group, meaning that Rekkles and the team did not progress to the knockout stage.

Season 5
On November 24th 2014, Rekkles joined Alliance as starting AD carry, after many rumours. His first event with Alliance was IEM San Jose. During the IEM event, Fnatic ended up in the semifinals, however, the team lost their match against Cloud9 and placed third after playing against Team SoloMid. During the event, Rekkles was nominated for the MVP award alongside PowerOfEvil, Vizicsacsi, Kikis, and Sneaky; however the final vote went to Sneaky.

In order to comply with new LCS regulations, Alliance would have to change their name for the upcoming season. On January 8th, it was announced that the team had rebranded as Elements. The Spring Split was not a success for the team as they finished 7th place after making a number of roster changes. Therefore, the team did not made it to the playoffs, however they did qualify for the Summer Split.

On May 14th 2015, Rekkles rejoined Fnatic. The team went into the Summer Season with confidence running high after their performance on the international stage at the 2015 Mid-Season Invitational, with Steelback on the roster, before Rekkles rejoined the team. Fnatic managed to finish the regular season with a perfect, unbeaten 18-0 record, and became the first team to achieve this in League Championship Series history. This meant a 1st place regular season finish for the team and a bye to the semifinals of the Summer Playoffs. Fnatic went on to win the playoffs, beating Origen 3-2 in a tight final. This qualified the team for the 2015 World Championship, where they would compete as Europe's #1 seed.

At the 2015 World Championship, Fnatic were seeded into Group B alongside Ahq e-Sports Club, Invictus Gaming, and Cloud9. They picked up four wins in the group, going unbeaten in the 2nd week of group stage games, thanks to Rekkles' Kennen pick, meaning that they would advance to the knockout stage of the tournament. In the quarterfinals, Fnatic had beaten EDward Gaming by 3-0, before suffering a 3-0 loss against KOO Tigers in the semifinals, putting an end to their campaign.

Season 6
At the start of the season, Fnatic were voted to play at IEM Season X - Cologne. They had undergone some roster changes and added a few new members - Gamsu, Spirit, and NoXiAK - to join Febiven and Rekkles. The team had a bye to the semifinals, but were beaten at this stage by Qiao Gu Reapers. Despite being only in fifth place in the EU LCS split at the time of the tournament, Fnatic were invited to IEM Katowice due to their previous season's success. There, they had a surprisingly strong run, finishing second place against SK Telecom. Despite his only being played one time in premier-region play prior to Katowice (by Sneaky on Cloud9 in North America), Rekkles played Jhin in 5 out of Fnatic's 6 wins, not dropping a single game on the champion. Fnatic then joined the EU LCS Spring Split, and ended up third place.

In Summer, Rekkles and Fnatic went through major changes in the team. In Week 8 of the Summer Split, the team decided to replace Gamsu with Kikis as the starting Top laner. The team finished at 5th place with a 7-6-5 standing. Prior to the playoffs, Fnatic announced the departure of Deilor from the team. They went on to the playoffs with their new Coach, NicoThePico. Unfortunately, Rekkles and team lost to H2k-Gaming (0-3). They also failed to qualify for the 2016 World Championship as they lost to Unicorns of Love (0-3) in the Regional Qualifiers.

For the 2017 Season, the team rebuilt around Rekkles. On December 1st, four new players were introduced and this include sOAZ, Amazing, Caps and Jesse.
