Luka “Perkz” Perković is officially signing up with Cloud9, leaving his five-year tradition behind with G2 Esports. The announcement marks his 2nd resurgence to the mid lane and the start of his North American journey. In the welcome video launched by C9 previously Friday, Perkz swore to take the NA region to a level higher than ever before.

Investing the majority of his competitive profession in G2 from 2015 to 2020, Perkz’s tradition has actually become synonymous with G2 Esports’ history itself. From an outstanding rookie to Worlds consistent competitor, Perkz has actually been the frontman of numerous models of G2 lineups due to his mechanical skill, tactical knowledge, management, and devotion.

Perkz has actually been a critical pillar to G2’s success in bringing house 8 EU LCS and LEC titles, a Mid-Season Invite title, and Worlds credentials. He formerly was granted Rookie of the Split, LEC 1st All-Pro Group, and MVP at the IEM Season XI – World Championship. Perkz has actually led G2 to Worlds semifinals in 2018 and 2020, and finals in 2019. In a statement released by Carlos “ocelote” Rodriguez, G2’s CEO, he explained Perkz as “is a living legend. Godspeed, King. G2 is your house, anytime.”

Also officially revealed on Friday: the AD Carry spot left by Perkz in G2 is filled by Fnatic veteran superstar Martin “Rekkles” Larsson. LCS and LEC fans certainly can not wait on an exciting 2021 League of Legends season.
