The great movement of the late 2020 was, without a doubt, the signing of Luka Perkz Perkovic by cloud9. The face of G2 ESPORTS left the lec after dominating it from end to end, playing a global final and winning a mid-season invitational in the process. Now, after leaving worlds 2021, it seems that another movement of that caliber is about to happen.
According to a report by Jacob Wolf and Pablo Suárez de Dot Esports, Cloud9 is exploring buyers for Perkz. According to sources close to the situation, the Croatian central lane expressed that he wishes to return to Europe for family themes. Added to the above, he seems that he also seeks to arm his own team of League of Legends for season 12. The goal of him is to find a place where he can fulfill it. It is worth mentioning that although there were mentions of assembling a team, this may be related to the rumored double with Barney Alphari Morris.
Cloud9 did not offer details about it. The report arrives after rumors about stagnation in the transfer market in Europe. Apparently, four players would change much the direction of possible negotiations for reinforcements. We must add that, indeed, there is already interest in buying Perkz both in Europe and North America. However, as we already share, the ideal thing is that he returns to the LEC and that visiting the family of him will not be so complicated.
Perkz arrived at Cloud9 in a three-year contract that ends up to 2023, for around 2 MDD per season. For the North America cloud, he gave up: he became with his first bicampeonate and arrived at the Worlds 2021 quarterfinals. While the MSI 2021 was very bitter, Perkz knew how to be present in the situations where he was most needed.
The format and transfer season will begin on November 15. Interested organizations can now establish conversations with cloud9 for the Perkz Purchase Clause. However, all the documentation and formal signing will have to wait until the aforementioned date.
