Some Rumors are more surprising than others and the one that sends Elias “Upset” Lipp to Fnatic should not shock anyone. Relayed by Esportmaniacos, this potential signature sounds obvious.
Fnatic fans may not have finished drying their tears over the departure of child prodigy Martin “Rekkles” Larsson. Despite this deep sorrow, the leaders still have a 2021 season to prepare for League of Legends. We must therefore find a quality ADC in this transfer window to forget the Swede. The task will not be easy and the candidates are not very numerous. At the latest news, Fnatic would have set his sights on the German Elias “Upset” Lipp. This transfer seems obvious, especially since we know that Juš ” Crownshot ” Marušič has been abandoned by the LEC teams.
Upset will replace Rekkles, who left Fnatic after more than 5 years and joined G2 Esports just a few days ago.

Upset will surely not be unanimous among Fnatic fans. He is very far from having the track record and the charisma of the Swede. But, to be completely honest, no European candidate can match Rekkles. Upset still has a few arguments. He is young (20 years old) and has shown great mechanical abilities during his career (Schalke 04 and Origen). In the past, he has adopted a real dominant attitude in botlane and an ability to carry his team. We think in particular of his summer 2018 where he finished vice-champion of Europe.
But, it must also be said that Upset was disappointing. Too irregular, he experienced holes in his performance. With Origen he thus finished 10th in the LEC during the last summer segment. Helpless and unrecognizable, he did nothing during this period that could reassure and comfort Fnatic fans.
