Ripping on G2 eSports mid laner, Luka “PerkZ” Perković, has become the favourite pastime of the European League of Legends fan – he’s the scapegoat EU needed and, after watching depressing highlights such as this one, seemingly, the scapegoat EU deserves. PerkZ play at the World Championship has not only bewildered European fans, but also professional casters from across the globe – season 2 world champion and former Taipei Assassins jungler, Alex “
Just in case you hadn’t noticed, the European region have, quite frankly, shit the bed at the 2016 League of Legends World Championship – EU’s representatives are the worst performing teams at the tournament – even the International Wildcard regions have surpassed the region that boasted two semi finalists last season.
The bar was set pretty low ahead of the tournament, European fans accepted that the region wasn’t at its strongest, though many still expected the EU LCS champions to have a decent showing on the Worlds stage. As it turned out, G2 eSports have been the biggest disappointment in World Championship history, without a single victory to their name. Mid laner Luka “Perkz” Perkovic has been consistently poor in every game… it’s like watching the Mid Season Invitational all over again.
G2 surely can’t sink any lower – after being predicted by many analysts to reach the semi finals – the European top seed were embarrassed by the CIS region’s Albus NoX Luna. After flashing his team logo as the team lost to Counter Logic Gaming in game one and following the worst build path in competitive history vs ROX Tigers, to die to a slow-motion gank from Mykhailo “Kira” Harmash’s Anivia was simply too much – especially for the Taiwanese casting duo.
PerkZ uses both summoner spells, burning both flash and cleanse, yet he still gives up first blood. The former TPA world champion jungler couldn’t believe what he was seeing:
“This play from PerkZ, is exactly what my Grandma would’ve done!
“That Q from Anivia moved extremely slow towards PerkZ, also Kira’s intention was extremely obvious – he put the wall behind PerkZ and walked towards him.
“PerkZ didn’t choose to flash, even though he’s already seen Elise… also, did you see how bad his cleanse is!?”
Alex “Lilballz” Sung, Taiwanese Caster
Liliballz paused for breath briefly – play moved on and the camera shifted towards the bottom lane match up – but the caster, infamous for his slightly toxic slant on games, just couldn’t let it go:
“Let’s talk about that play from PerkZ again…
“He chose to cleanse when the stun from Anivia Q was almost finished, after he cleansed he got instantly cocooned by Elise.
“Oh my God, what the fuck is he doing!? He used cleanse but he still got the full stun from both skills!
“I normally don’t talk about mechanics – I believe mechanics are a basic requirement – you can’t even be a pro player without mechanics, it’s the most basic thing, right?
“That play was unbelievably bad up to the point that I question: why in the world is he here!?”
Believe me Liliballz, every EU fan is asking the exact same question…
