- Team Vitality might be ending Perkz’s contract early
- He is one of the best mid-laners in the West, but it seems Vitality have other plans
- Academy jungler Daglas will allegedly replace Perkz on the main roster
Following a disappointing competitive LoL season, Team Vitality is looking to restructure with rumors circulating they will end Luka “Perkz” Perković’s contract early.
Perkz Might Be Let Go
While fans of competitive League of Legends are focused on the currently ongoing World Championship 2023, organizations that are not participating in the big event are already busy preparing for the next season. This includes Team Vitality who, according to recent rumors, will be parting ways with their current mid-laner Luka “Perkz” Perković.
According to sources close to Blix, who was the first to report on the matter, the esports organization has already reached a verbal agreement with the 25-year-old player. This is allegedly part of Vitality’s efforts to rebuild their roster before the start of the 2024 season, something that should not come as a surprise, considering the team had not been performing well the past few months. Vitality had an abysmal record during the summer LEC, losing many matches and eventually exiting the series in sixth place.
It would be quite a change for Vitality if the rumors turned out to be true. Perkz is one of the most well-known players worldwide, being considered one of the best midlaners in the history of the West. Over his nine years of professional League of Legends play, he has made a name for himself and has been crucial in the victories of the teams he’s been a part of.
Perkz is perhaps best known for his time in G2 Esports, which he joined in October of 2015. He spent the next five years with the team, playing a huge role in what is considered G2’s strongest era. The Croatian player helped the team win the MSI 2019 and finish the 2019 World Championships in second place.
The 25-year-old player eventually joined his current team Vitality in December of 2021. The next year was decent for Vitality, but 2023 definitely was not great for the team, which has won just two matches total since April. Although Perkz’s contract was signed until the end of the 2024 season, it seems he will be let go early. The rumors say that academy jungler Kacper “Daglas” Dagiel will be promoted to the main roster in his place.
Take this information with a grain of salt as Team Vitality has yet to confirm any of these changes.
