Perkz talks G2 role swap for LEC 2020, say it was Caps’ idea

During a recent Twitch stream Luka “Perkz” Perković discussed how and why he is changing roles with his teammate, Rasmus “Caps” Winther.

Before the start of the 2019 season, Perkz was the star of G2 Esports’ League of Legends team.

Despite being one of the best mid laners in Europe, Perkz stepped away from the role due to G2’s signing of Caps, who played mid for Fnatic and seemed to be the better mid in the previous season. This saw Perkz move to the bottom lane as a result.

The roster retooling paid off for G2 as the team climbed the ranks and became the best team in Europe, winning both LEC titles in 2019 and fighting their way to the finals at the 2019 LoL World Championship. But the two players have a different idea for the upcoming season.

Perkz is back to his main role, Caps takes on a new challenge

Starting in the LEC 2020 Spring Split, G2’s starting roster will have Caps on the bot lane, while Perkz is returning mid. Many were surprised to hear the news, even more so with Perkz’s recent announcement that it was all Caps’ idea. Fans were widely assuming Perkz wanted the more prestigious role back.

“I’m not going to force someone to do something they don’t want to do,” Perkz shared with his fans during a stream. “It was Caps’ idea to go bot anyways, not mine.”

Perkz hasn’t further elaborated on the reasoning behind this decision. However, in a recent interview with Cybersport, G2’s jungler Marcin “Jankos” Jankowski shared Perkz wasn’t feeling too comfortable playing bot lane, while Caps is constantly searching for a challenge.

Earlier during a stream, Jankos stated Caps wants to play bot so he can beat his former teammate from Fnatic, Martin “Rekkles” Larsson, while playing his role.
