This delightful Easter egg has already been picked up by many Dota 2 fans. While OG fans have been harping for the return of TI8 and TI9 winner Anathan “ana” Pham, it seems that OG has decided to go another way.
Who is Rekkles? Is he part of OG’s Dota 2 roster
In the video, between the timestamp 0:38 and 0:42, you can see the camera is pointed at a monitor. The monitor displays all the members of the OG Dota 2 roster. Apart from Topson, Saksa, Notail, and Ceb, a new name is also present. The person is none other than G2’s League of Legends player, Carl Martin Erik Larsson. He is better known in the gaming world ass Rekkles.
Welcome to the family, we’re keeping Rekkles though sorry not sorry ❤

While there has been no official confirmation of Rekkles being part of OG’s squad, the video is all the proof fans need to draw their own conclusions. However, OG pulled down an Instagram post that had Rekkles’ name prominently displayed in the picture. Combine that to the tweet reply from G2 saying, “we’re keeping Rekkles though sorry not sorry,” the news is highly confusing.

However, this final comment from the CEO of OGEsports will put all confusion to an end. It’s official and Rekkles will most probably be taking part in DPC Season 2 as OG’s safe-lane carry player.
