Luka “Perkz” Perković won’t be playing in the 2020 LEC Summer Split next weekend.
G2 Esports notched a convincing victory over Fnatic in the third week of the Summer Split, but soon after the win Perkz announced that he wouldn’t be on the starting lineup next week. While he was happy with the performance, Perkz admitted that he was “having a bit of a hard time” dealing with stress.
“I will be taking a break from competing next week, so it feels really good taking a break on a very high note,” Perkz said.
I’m so happy we won today with good performance!

Fans of G2 were very supportive of Perkz’ decision to take a short break from the competitive scene. The LEC immediately sent a heart emoji his way and Fnatic, who they had just defeated, even offered him some kind words.
“Congratulations on the win this evening, Luka. But, above all competition, enjoy your deserved break,” they tweeted.
