League of Legends: Jenax extends contract at SK Gaming

The competitive season for teams that didn't qualify for the League of Legends Worlds 2020 is already over. Some teams are already planning for the next season by entering the traditional off-season talks ahead of time.

SK Gaming qualified for the LEC Summer Split Playoffs, but failed to secure its place at the League of Legends World Championship. If the players are on vacation, the managers aren't. It's time to prepare for the next season and make the necessary adjustments.

Several players are coming to the end of their contracts in November and they have to be extended or replaced. Among them, Janik "Jenax" Bartels has renewed his commitment for two years - pending, of course, the confirmation from Riot Games.

A rock in toplane

For those who remember, Jenax is not originally a toplaner. He started his career in LEC in midlane but switched for the year 2020. If the Spring was complicated, since SK finished him in 9th place, the Summer was more satisfying for the German team, which secured its ticket to the Playoffs.

Jenax got used to its new role. He has carried several games and without being the center of attention, the team can always count on him. It's thus good news for SK Gaming to see him stay for another 2 years. At 21 years old, he still has a good margin for improvement.

SK Gaming will now need to tackle the question of the botlane. Juš "Crownshot" Marušič (botlaner) and Dino "LIMIT" Tot (support) are at the end of their contract and we still don't know if the structure plans to keep them.
