About Ed Thorn

Ed joined Metabomb in May 2017 and puts together guides and news across the site.

G2 are arguably the strongest team in the LEC right now, but it’s had to make some last-minute changes to ensure it stays on top. Hampus Mikael “Promisq” Abrahamsson will be temporarily taking over the support role from Mihael “Mikyx” Mehle as he recovers from a wrist injury.

Mikyx has been struggling for some time with chronic wrist injuries, which have only worsened as the Spring Split has progressed. Following visits with specialists, G2 has taken the decision to reduce his play in scrims and remove his solo queue play obligations entirely.

Promisq will be a member of G2’s roster until May 20th 2019, which means he’ll likely play for the team throughout playoffs and even in the Mid-Season Invitational. However, this doesn’t rule out Mikyx, as G2 wants him to remain as its primary support player for the rest of the split and step in for the most important matches.

Promisq isn’t a stranger to the League of Legends esports scene as he’s competed in the EU LCS (before it became LEC) under H2K Gaming back in 2018. His other previous teams include Ninjas in Pyjamas and Paris Saint-Germain in 2017.

It remains to be seen how G2 will fare with a new addition to its lineup, but with a star-studded core consisting of Caps and Perkz, we imagine they’ll be just fine. Promisq has also been scrimming with the squad over the past few weeks, so there’s been some time to build synergy between the team as a whole.
