Jankos
Marcin Jankowski 
Poland
G2 Esports
Set to join G2
December 6, 2017
Jankos and G2 are finalizing a deal for the 2018 season, ESPN's Jacob Wolf reports.
ANALYSIS
Jankos has become one of the best European junglers during his time with H2K and is a good fit for a rebuilding G2 Esports. Jankos' aggressive style sets up well for his laners and the prospect of him and Perkz on the same team sets a good core for G2 to build around in the new year.
Free Agent
Middle-of-the-road statistics
November 29, 2017
Jankos ended the 2017 Summer Split with a 68/56/216 total KDA.
ANALYSIS
Jankos helped to lead H2K to a first-place finish in Group B during the regular season. He was fifth in kills and assists, had the third-highest KDA and second-lowest death total among European junglers. Jankos ended the playoffs with a 9/20/35 KDA, falling to G2 in the semifinals and finishing in fourth-place after falling 3-2 to Fnatic. He finished the regional qualifier with a 20/25/92 KDA, reaching the regional finals but being swept by Fnatic and missing out on the 2017 World Championships. Jankos announced he has left H2K once free agency opened and is looking for a new organization in 2018.
Leaving H2K after two years
November 21, 2017
Jankos announced on Twitter that he will be leaving H2K.
ANALYSIS
Jankos has spent the last two years with H2K, making Worlds in Season 6 and leading his team to a top-four finish. The jungler continued to be among the best in his role throughout Season 8, despite his team's shortcomings toward the end of Season 7. There is no indication as to where he will end up, but he is open to playing in all major regions.
Massive assist total
September 9, 2017
Jankos ended H2K's 3-0 win over Splyce with a 10/5/37 combined KDA.
ANALYSIS
Jankos used Sejuani in the first two games to earn a combined 8/2/25 KDA. He was involved in 16 of 18 kills in Game 1 while having an unkillable 6/0/10 KDA, and finished Game 2 involved in 17 of 20 kills with a 2/2/15 KDA. He was two assists short of the team high in the first two games as he was able to set up H2K for success. His Sejuani drew a ban in Game 3, so Jankos switched to Gragas and finished with a 2/3/12 KDA. He was involved in 14 of 21 kills, finishing tied with Nuclear for the second-most assists in the game as H2K closed out the series.
Shut down by counter pick
August 15, 2017
5/8/19 was Jankos' overall scoreline by the end of H2k's 2-1 Sunday loss to Unicorns of Love.
ANALYSIS
Jankos went with Zac for Game 1, prompting the surprise counter pick of jungle Poppy from Xerxe. However, Jankos was entirely unphazed, landing long-range engages to help his team snowball to a win, earning a 3/0/14 KDA in the process. However, as both junglers stuck with their picks for the whole series, things quickly turned against Jankos. Without the same dominant early game from H2k in Games 2 and 3, the Poppy pick was incredibly effective at shutting down Jankos' Elastic Slingshot, leaving him completely ineffectual.
Able to set up kills on The Spider Queen
August 11, 2017
Jankos ended Friday's sweep of Mysterious Monkeys with a 6/4/10 KDA in two games as Elise.
ANALYSIS
Jankos finished Game 1 with a 3/1/5 KDA. He was involved in eight of H2k's 13 kills in the game, finishing tied for both the second-highest kill and assist totals on the team. In Game 2, Jankos earned a 3/3/5 KDA. He was involved in only half of H2k's kills, finishing with the second-lowest assist total, but the second-most kills as H2k closed out the series.
Provides the pressure that leads to snowball
July 28, 2017
Jankos finished H2K's sweep of Splyce with a 4/0/20 KDA in two games as Gragas.
ANALYSIS
Jankos ended Game 1 with a 2/0/7 KDA. He was involved in nine of 15 kills in Game 1, but did enough to get his laners going from an early stage. He was better in Game 2, earning a 2/0/13 KDA. He was involved in all but two kills, finishing the game with the second-highest assist total. Jankos was unkillable across both games, providing excellent crowd control and helping H2K to a fairly one-sided sweep.
Hot game, but cold series
July 24, 2017
Jankos earned a 8/7/22 KDA during H2k-Gaming's defeat to G2 Esports.
ANALYSIS
Jankos was all over the thermostat during his brawl with G2 Esports, and he was at times both H2k's best and worst player. Unfortunately, the latter could not have come at worse times, as Jankos completely choked at the end of the series, where his team needed him most. On the other hand, his team's victory in Game 2 was largely attributable to his outstanding Cho'Gath play, as he punished G2's bottom side of the map harshly enough with repeated ganks that he snowballed them to an early victory. Still, the lack of consistency is certainly a worrisome sign from a team that's long been known for choking once the season comes to an end. If H2k want to finally make the EU LCS title theirs, he's going to need many more games like Game 2, and far fewer like Game 3.
King of the jungle
June 18, 2017
Jankos went 9/4/14 as H2K swept Team Vitality on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Jankos' Game 1 on Lee Sin didn't start out ideally, as he went down in a 2-vs-2 fight in the top lane. However, he followed up with a quick series of assists, and went down only twice more for the remainder of the game. Jankos didn't necessarily start much of the action in this game, but he was always where he needed to be to back up his teammates, going 2/3/11 in the Game 1 victory. Jankos' Game 2 on Kha'Zix was even better. He didn't manage to grab first blood, as his team found it elsewhere at level 1, but he did grab the next two kills for his team. As the game transitioned into teamfights, Jankos was all over Vitality's backline, fearless with backup from Odoamne's Shen to go 7/1/6 as H2K completed the sweep.
Early aggression leads to dominant Game 2
June 6, 2017
Jankos played Elise twice in H2k's 2-0 win on Saturday vs Mysterious Monkeys, posting a 5/3/11 KDA.
ANALYSIS
Jankos managed to secure first blood in Game 1 as Elise in the top lane, though he struggled to convert it into an early lead for H2k. Fortunately, Mysterious Monkeys' atrocious macro gave H2k time to overcome a slight kill deficit and take first tower, staying even in gold while MM's early-game comp petered out. After a 3-for-2 teamfight for H2k at 21 minutes, H2k remained firmly in the lead, with Jankos setting up picks with ease en route to a 2/3/4 KDA. In Game 2, Jankos found way more success on Elise after securing first blood, camping the top lane to snowball out of control. Jankos linked up well with Chei and Odoamne in the mid-late game, picking up kills with ease to finish with a 3/0/7 KDA as H2k took a 2-0 sweep with a 27-minute stomp in Game 2.
Relies on aggression, for better or worse
June 2, 2017
Jankos posted a 7/5/18 KDA in H2K's 2-0 series victory over Splyce on Thursday.
ANALYSIS
Jankos is known for his aggressive playstyle and strong play on high-damage junglers. He was able to play two games of Graves, one of his signature champions. In Game 1, Jankos put his team behind by being too aggressive and getting caught in the enemy jungle. Due to this, H2K lost the early game heavily. Jankos and co. recovered to win the game later, but the initial struggles could have been avoided. Game 2 saw Jankos putting his team ahead early by finding kills around the map. A fed Graves is quite dangerous, and Jankos abused that fact to get his laners ahead. Overall Jankos looked solid, and his post-game interview exuded his usual fun attitude. With that, Jankos is likely looking to reclaim the EU jungle throne, and he could very well do that.
Runs for his life in loss
April 11, 2017
Jankos posted an 8/8/7 KDA in H2K's 0-3 loss to Fnatic on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
The "First Blood King" continued to do well in despite his team's woes throughout the series. While Jankos did do well, that in relativity to the rest of his team's shortcomings in the series. Jankos did, in fact, get out-jungled by his Fnatic counterpart. That isn't a big issue, because he was partially out-jungled due to the rest of his team doing poorly. The mid game for Jankos was mostly illustrated by running for his life and finding picks whenever he could.
Up-and-down series against Vitality
March 25, 2017
Jankos finished H2K's victory over Vitality on Saturday 11/9/26.
ANALYSIS
Jankos picked Kha'Zix in Game 1 and looked fantastic. Smart fights and counter ganks allowed Jankos to find five of H2K's first six kills, missing out only on a solo kill by Febiven. This made Jankos a huge threat in the late game, as demonstrated by his 1-vs-2 fight against Djoko and Cabochard just shy of 31 minutes, where he trades his Guardian Angel for the life of Djoko's Rengar. As good as he looked in the Game 1 victory, he looked equally bad in the Game 2 defeat on Elise. He went down early to his counterpart in a 2-vs-2 fight that H2K just barely lost, and from there just continued to get caught out. With Vitality winning all over the map, Jankos couldn't find a play to make and simply died when he attempted one, ending 0/5/2. On Ivern for Game 3, Jankos grabbed a surprising first blood in a jungle duel against Djoko's Lee Sin. From there he racked up the assists with Redemption, crowd control and shields, and his use of Daisy in teamfights was particularly on point. Despite a promising comeback attempt from Vitality, H2K took Game 3 and the series.
No issues against Fnatic
March 3, 2017
Jankos ended H2K's Thursday sweep of Fnatic with a 7/2/8 combined KDA.
ANALYSIS
Jankos ended Game 1 with a 5/1/3 KDA as Graves. He picked up an assist in the first teamfight and two kills in the second teamfight. A kill picking off Rekkles in the late game and a kill and an assist in the fourth and in the final teamfights allowed H2K to end a quick Game 1. Jankos used Kha'Zix in Game 2 to finish with a 2/1/5 KDA. He picked up an assist in the first teamfight and helped pick off sOAZ in the mid game. An assist in a 3-vs-3 fight bottom and an assist picking off Jesiz followed, before two kills and an assist in the final teamfight closed out the series.
Uncharacteristically passive in loss to Flash Wolves
February 27, 2017
Jankos finished H2K's 1-2 semifinal loss to Flash Wolves at IEM Katowice with a 1/4/12 KDA.
ANALYSIS
Jankos had a decent Game 1 performance on Kha'Zix, despite not being able to generate any of his customary early pressure. While H2K secured two Infernal Drakes, two Baron kills and three Elder Dragon buffs, Jankos only posted a KDA of 0/1/6 in H2K's harrowing 63-minute win. Jankos looked confident on Ivern in Game 2, leading H2K to a mid game advantage through good rotation play and sieging near turrets. While H2K got ahead with ease, however, they couldn't close the game out, looking hesitant in the late game out of fear of throwing. Finishing with a 0/1/5 KDA, Jankos looked a far cry from his normal aggressive self in Flash Wolves' Game 2 win in 45 minutes. Fading throughout the series, Jankos was near silent in Game 3 on Graves as Flash Wolves dominated the map early to take a lead into the mid game. While Flash Wolves periodically threw the lead to H2K, Jankos and the rest of his side couldn't make anything of it, finishing with a KDA of 1/2/1 for Jankos in a heartbreaking 46-minute loss.
