Former Team Liquid star Hans Sama to join G2 Esports, report says
A rumor has been circulating in the League of Legends community. According to independent journalist LEC Wooloo, Steven “Hans Sama” Liv is planning to join G2 Esports for the next LEC season.
G2 Esports had a tough season last year. Three of their key players, Wunder, Mikyx, and Rekkles, announced their resignation due to bad performance in the 2021 season. All of them are top players in their respective roles.
After hearing the announcement, many fans began speculating about possible player transfers. One player that caught fans’ attention was Hans. Fans consider him the best ADC (Attack Damage Carry) in Europe after seeing his outstanding performance during the 2021 competition.
“@LEC_Wooloo G2 Hans Sama is the best option. Hans has no future in Rogue, and it would be a perfect fit for G2,” one fan tweeted.
Unfortunately, the 23-year-old decided to join Team Liquid from November 2021 to September 2022. That said, hope is not yet lost for G2 Esports fans as Wooloo’s tweet has sparked another round of hopeful expectations.
“Lmao I was telling people there’s no way he’s going to KC if G2 offers him a contract guess I was right,” one fan tweeted.
Another professional League player, Kacper “Inspired” Słoma, also responded to Wooloo’s tweet.
“Hans mama is back home?” Inspired wrote.
Wooloo asked if Inspired would be the next player to join G2 Esports. Previously, Wooloo said that Hans was an attractive player for many teams, including MAD Lions, Vitality and Fnatic, because of his status as a free agent.
If the rumor is true, then the French player will play alongside Sergen “BrokenBlade” Celik, Rasmus Borregaard “caPs” Winther, Victor “Flakked” Lirola and Raphael “Targamas” Crabbe.
Hans is a bot laner who has played for teams such as The Gentle Team, E-corp Gentle, and Millenium. He competed in LEC 2016 as a member of Misfits Gaming.
Hans and his team dominated the regular season and only lost one game against Team Forge. Team Misfits beat Epsilon eSports in the semifinals and Millenium in the final round. The team then entered League Championship Series 2017 after defeating FC Schalke 04.
The French player stayed with the team for three years before parting ways with them. In November 2019, he joined Rogue and played for the team for two years before joining Team Liquid. Team Liquid acquired Hans after buying out his contract.
Hans did not play every game in the preseason Lock–In tournament because the team was rotating its roster. Team Liquid won the tournament by defeating Evil Geniuses 3-0. Unfortunately, despite having a solid squad, the team failed to enter Worlds 2022.
G2 Esports loses another player
While Hans is planning to join G2 Esports, another player recently announced their resignation from the team. On October 22, jungler Marcin “Jankos” Jankowski confirmed his departure after being a member since 2017.
“Wherever I end up, if I really want to give my best for the last couple of years I have left in me, it would be good for me to play with different players, maybe under a different organization. Just to try something else,” Jankos said.
The 27-year-old plans to travel to South Korea to take a break from the game and return to Europe after one month. In a recent YouTube video, Jankos said he would “probably be looking for a team.”
