Fnatic's League of Legends player Rekkles is benched

This is only for "strategic reasons".

When you think of Fnatic's League of Legends team, one player probably springs to mind, that being veteran bot laner Martin 'Rekkles' Larsson, who has been a mainstay on the team for three years now, but he has been benched recently as part of the team's run in the EU League of Legends Championship Series.

Coach Joey 'YoungBuck' Steltenpool tweeted that the lineup was being changed for "strategic reasons", a sentiment echoed by tweets from the official Fnatic account, and it comes as a little bit of a surprise given Rekkles is one of the biggest names in the league right now, this surprise being clear in responses to the tweets.

None of this means anything serious for now, but it will be interesting to see where Rekkles fits into the team in the coming weeks. Would you have benched him?
