G2 Esports star Rasmus ‘Caps’ Winther broke an obscure record in his impressive first match of LEC Spring 2020, where he debuted as an AD-carry. 

G2 stunned the League of Legends pro scene with an unexpected role swap at the end of 2019, with Caps moving to the bot lane, while Luka ‘Perkz’ Perković took over the middle position.

It was a move few could have expected, as Caps had never played professionally in the bot lane, and the team had just had a historic year – winning both LEC splits, the Mid-Season Invitational, and coming in second at the World Championship.

Caps made the switch to the bot lane and is already breaking records.

Regardless, the unexpected happened and the first week went better than anyone could expect. The European squad started the competitive season with two wins, with Caps performing incredibly well and even breaking a record in his first match.

In their opening match of the season, the Dane put up insane numbers, securing nine kills and 12 assists in just 34 minutes. Not only that, but he also went the game without dying – an impressive feat in and of itself.

Reddit user HiderDK then pointed out an obscure but stunning statistic. Caps had secured more kills and assists, while also being a part of all of his team’s kills and not dying once, than any other ADC player in the history of the pro scene.

In Caps’s first game as an ADC he became the first player in a major league to have 100% kill participation, 21 or more kills+assists and 0 deaths. from leagueoflegends

Even though that may sound a bit tailored specifically to the situation, it’s still incredibly impressive and shows just how monstrous his performance was.

A player that had never played the ADC position before was involved in all 21 kills and didn’t die for the whole game. With someone like that, it’s no wonder that G2 are one of the best teams in the world.

Caps passing Perkz as greatest western LoL player – Amazing & Munchables

With the topic of the “greatest Western League of Legends player of all time” heating up once again, Maurice ‘Amazing’ Stückenschneider and Joseph ‘Munchables’ Fenny have explained why G2 Esports star Rasmus ‘Caps’ Winther could be taking the number one spot over teammate Luka ‘Perkz’ Perkovic, in Dexerto’s recent Worlds 2020 review.

As Worlds 2020 is coming closer to declaring a new set of champions, one of the biggest talking points in the League of Legends community has been the overall performance of Western teams at the international event and the individual players who contribute to them.

After G2 Esports defeated Gen.G in the quarter-finals and cemented themselves as “the last Western hope” following Fnatic’s narrow defeat to Top Esports, it raised the question of who exactly is the best Western player of all time.

Speaking on the matter in our Worlds review, Amazing highlighted that Perkz being around for longer has let him build up a more impressive resume than his teammate, “Caps has the highest highs I would suppose and Perkz has the better career so far, because he has done more in his career so far.”

Is Caps better than Perkz?

Munchables followed up by adding that the success Caps has seen in such a short span of time can not go unnoticed when discussing the pair, making it even more difficult to rank who is truly the best player of all time.

“I honestly think the problem is Caps is too good,” he explained. “The amount of time he has been in the scene, versus the amount of time he has been successful, is such a one-sided ratio on the side of success.”

Munchables also claimed that Caps might have had a greater impact on the region as a whole, comparing the success of Europe internationally before and after his time on teams like G2 and Fnatic, who have both made appearances in the Worlds final with him on the roster.

“European success versus, before Caps and with Caps is so dramatically skewed to Caps being a part of that,” Munchables explained. “At this point, I find it almost unarguable that Caps is the best Western player of all time.”

Amazing added that Perkz had paved the way for Caps to be the best in the west, after years of putting together a roster that is now helping the mid laner to shine on the biggest stage. “He’s granted Caps the ability to understand what winning really means.”

He then followed up on Caps’ growth as a player in the new G2 lineup, claiming that he has also had a “shift in mindset” which has massively helped his ability to play at the highest level.

Only time will tell how each of these remarkable players will fare throughout the rest of their careers as there will be plenty of opportunities to sway public opinion. But for now, it will likely remain up for debate as the two G2 stars continue to perform on the Rift.
