G2 Esports‘ unbeatable pair of Luka “Perkz” Perković and Rasmus “Caps” Winther will once again swap roles, with Perkz back in the bot lane and Caps back in the mid lane.
Perkz earlier hinted about the swap when he played as ADC during his streams.
Despite bagging the LEC 2020 Spring Championship title, it seems like G2 Esports’ decision to swap the two prior to the Spring Split did not work out for the best.
“It can go both ways. It either doesn’t work at all, in which case that’s great, we have the summer split and they’ll re-swap then,” said G2 Founding CEO Carlos “ocelote” Rodríguez Santiago last January in an interview with ESPN.
Ocelote’s ultimate goal is to give G2 the upper hand to be flexible with their roles and to later on confuse their opponents.
“Then we have a mental edge and now the real s— starts. Or then it works and whatever we pick, no one will know where it’s going. That’s the best case scenario.”
Playing as a professional bot laner for the first time, Caps did have some hits and misses during the nine-week Spring regular season. Caps’ ADC will always be remembered for his great plays towards the end of the Split.
For others, this change doesn’t really matter.
