Despite being the first year of playing in the ADC position, “G2 spiritual leader” – Perkz was filled with confidence when asserting himself as “best ADC” at Worlds 2019.
Recently, VIT has revealed its LEC 2023 lineup with a potential pair of Bo and Perkz. And to learn more about this team, reporter Thorin recently talked with the “European clown”, but this guy revealed a lot about his memories with T1 at Worlds 2019.

Looking back on the past, Perkz and G2 Esports in 2019 are considered one of the most powerful squads in the history of Western League of Legends. Talking about the time to surpass SKT, Perkz said:
“We beat DWG KIA in the Quarterfinals, to be honest Mikyx and I played really well in that match, I think we were the best duo in the world at the time.
At MSI, I thought JackeyLove might be stronger than me, but I don’t know if I’m stronger than Teddy, because it was the first international tournament I played in ADC.
But after playing against other teams at Worlds, I know this sounds arrogant but I was pretty sure I was the best AD carry in the world at the time. With that in mind, I decided not to lose and refused any defeat. I think Caps is the best mid laner in the world, I sit down and look at my G2 teammates, they are all the best players in the world in their positions. Except for Wunder, because he had a bit of a psychological problem against TheShy.” – Perkz talks about the strength of G2 at Worlds 2019.
However, this was only Perkz’s thoughts after he and his teammates defeated T1 (SKT) with a 3-1 result, because then G2 Esports lost 0-3 to FunPlus Phoenix at the 2019 World Championship final.
