The long-standing debate amongst League of Legends fans as to who is the best player that Europe has ever produced often comes down to two names, Perkz and Caps. We take a look at how they have both fared, with and against each other, during their rise to the top of LoL esports.

Luka ‘Perkz’ Perkovic and Rasmus ‘Caps’ Winther have taken turns proving their dominance over the rest of LEC competition in recent years, with Caps shining on Fnatic and Perkz on G2 Esports.

The pair are known for their incredible mechanical skill and champion oceans unlike any others, and would often flaunt their carry potential by taking over games single-handedly.

The former rivals are now aiming for glory together on G2 Esports.

The mid lane kings have amassed 10 regional titles between them, however, after consistently falling short in international competition, they joined forces on G2 Esports, for Spring 2019, in what many considered to be a bold move.

With Perkz moving to ADC to allow for Caps to join, G2 Esports and their unconventional style almost went perfect throughout 2019, winning the Mid-Season Invitational and making it to Worlds finals, only falling to FunPlus Phoenix.

After their finals defeat, they switched roles yet again, with Perkz returning to mid lane and Caps filling in as ADC, opening up flexible drafting possibilities and re-igniting the debate amongst fans as to which is the better player.

Nick ‘LS’ De Cesare has revealed that Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel reached out to him during the T1 backlash offering his support and advice.

T1’s accidental leak that revealed LS was set to be the organization’s new League of Legends coach resulted in a wave of backlash against both parties.

Fans of the organization opted to send unjustifiable racial and homophobic abuse towards LS, as well as doxxing his grandmother and sending packages to her address. T1, from an outside perspective, did not handle the situation appropriately and seemingly offered little support to LS during this period.

This resulted in LS disabling his Twitter and going completely dark for a short period of time. This was no doubt due to the amount of hate and criticism he was receiving from T1 fans. One person who reached to support him was huge Twitch personality xQc.

LS revealed on stream that the Twitch personality reached out to him in support. “Before I disabled my Twitter and went dark on everything, xQc was one of the very few people who reached out to me,” he said.

It was obvious LS was surprised he had reached out to him due to the streamer’s popularity: “Despite the fact that I’m like an insect compared to him, in terms of like brand and size and everything, it’s very nice.”

LS repeated multiple times that xQc is a “real one”, showing his appreciation for his support and care.

It’s clear that xQc reaching out to LS really meant a lot to him and helped him get through the difficult patch. Sometimes, just reaching out to somebody going through a hard time can make a world of difference.

Now, it’s just great to see LS back on track with the League of Legends content and streaming again.
