Fnatic League of Legends Team Manager Javier “Dardo” Zafra responded to a question from a fan about G2 esports possibly poaching their star jungler Oskar “Selfmade” Boderek on his stream.
During his weekly AMA stream in which he reflects on Fnatic’s result in the prior LEC weekend, Dardo got asked if he thinks that G2 esports are poaching Selfmade with their Twitter posts. The example was their recent post with an image of a G2 jersey with “SELFMADE” spelt on the back. The question implied that Selfmade likes to “banter” on Twitter with G2 members as they are friends. Even though there is nothing wrong with it, the question also suggests that G2 might be crossing the line when it comes to poaching.
G2 posted the tweet in order to make fun of their own jungler Marcin “Jankos” Jankowski after he missed a smite on baron in their game vs. Astralis.
This topic is very sensitive for Fnatic fans, following the recent departure of their legend Martin “Rekkles” Larsson to G2. He was also asked about his opinion on poaching in general, and here is what he had to say.
“I think sometimes they are a bit over the line, or very close to the line in terms of what they do, what they say, but I guess that’s the downside of being always like…trying to boost for the jokes…for the humour and for the memes, etc.”
Dardo also stated that Selfmade is also “playing that game” as a part of his personality, however, he assures that he is under contract and 100% dedicated to the team and its project.
G2 are famous for their humor and banter on social media. They often like to meme about their players, performances, other teams, etc. Is it all innocent memes, or is that all part of the big Carlos’ masterplan? Well, you may be the judge.
Tell us do you think G2 is just bantering or is it a bit too far?
