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.

A Riot developer has responded to players’ concerns after a strange critical strike damage bug was found with Rengar’s abilities in League of Legends.

With over 150 unique champions in League of Legends and mid lane mage Seraphine also on the way, there are now plenty of characters with different playstyles to master.

However, one of the most unusual champions in the game is Rengar for his strange interactions with the terrain on summoner’s rift, as fans of the Pridestalker can make use of brushes on the map to leap towards opponents with each basic attack.

Rengar’s ability to stack up Ferocity with each attack can make the assassin quite deadly to unsuspecting opponents, as players will gain an empowered attack when his Ferocity bar is maxed out.

While this empowered ability is supposed to add even more damage to his potential combo, Rengar mains have noticed a strange bug with the champ that would prevent any Critical Strike damage from being included on his empowered Q ability.

After it was first discovered, LoL player u/Bendzsike tested the bug and revealed that Rengar’s Q ability could actually deal more damage while the ability was not empowered, despite the fact that Crit items like Phantom Dancer are commonly seen as an item in Rengar’s build path.

Once this bug was found to make items with extra Critical Strike stats less useful for the champion, players reached out to Riot devs, asking them to address this bizarre damage issue.

Riot developer August Browning, who worked on Rengar’s rework in Season 8, responded confirming that it was definitely a bug and that they would work on fixing it in an upcoming patch.

“Another Rengar bug. It’s probably my fault too,” he responded jokingly, confirming his plans to work on a fix, “I’ll go fix this while crying.”

While Riot is now aware of this new Rengar bug, it is unclear just when this patch will be rolled out on live servers. So, it might be best to stick with Rengar’s lethality build until it has been fixed.
