C9 Perkz: “I know that Jankos desires to go to NA after this year.”|Dot Esports
One of LEC’s finest junglers might be contemplating a move even additional west.
Perkz, who made a guest look on IWillDominate’s podcast The Crackdown last night, stated that former teammate G2 Esports’ Jankos desired to relocate to the LCS after the season.
The jungler has actually won four LEC split championships and one Mid-Season Invitational with G2. On paper, Jankos is now part of the strongest G2 lineups ever assembled after the acquisition of Rekkles, in a quote to declare an evasive World Champion for the organization.
For Jankos, who started his expert career in 2013 and is among League’s longest-tenured professional gamers, the possibility of unwinding his competitive career might be an appealing one, whether he wins Worlds or not. Jankos has been formerly singing about his intent to divert more attention to streaming and a prospective transfer to the LCS once the desire to compete at the highest level fades.
While LEC remains among the more competitive regions in League, it’s widely known that LCS wages are far greater, particularly for a possibly high-tier import such as Jankos.

For Perkz, who once called Jankos his “preferred colleague ever,” a reunion could be on the cards. C9 has been outstanding through the first weeks of the LCS Spring 2021 split, however even the most dominant NA teams have actually had lackluster outcomes on the international phase.
Should LCS have another poor showing in Worlds like 2020, where none of its groups made it out of groups, the region’s elite orgs could be salivating at the possibility to record among the West’s most revered junglers, even if it’s towards the tail end of his profession.
