The 2 best LoL players in EU swap roles: "Controlled Chaos"

It is official: Probably the best LoL players in Europe will swap positions in the 2020 season.

Luka “Perkz” Perković, so far Botlaner of G2 Esports, changes to the middle. Rasmus “Caps” Winter goes down to the Botlane as AD-Carry. The goal is to bring controlled chaos into the League of Legends.

Who are these two players? Perkz and Caps are both “learned” Midlaneers:

-Perkz (21) was the Midlaner of G2 Esports for four years.
-Caps (20) was the Midlaner of Fnatic for 2 years.

The two of them were each the biggest rival of the other. They made the championship in Europe among themselves. Between 2016 and 2018 in the European LoL, it was really only about which of the two would become champion with his team.

But to compete internationally for the World Championship, Perkz decided to join forces with Caps in 2019. Perkz changed from the Midlane to the Botlane so that G2 Esports Caps could sign up Caps for the Midlane.

As a team, they had their best year so far, and in the end, they were only one series away from winning the Worlds 2019 and therefore the “Grand Slam”.

This is changing now: They have now officially announced that they will switch roles. On January 24th, when the LEC 2020 starts, Perkz will play in the Midlane and Caps in the Botlane. (via espon)

This role-swap has been hinted at before, but you didn’t know if they were serious, because G2 Esports is known to troll a bit and there is no reason to change.

Everyone goes everywhere, and it’s chaos

Why are they doing this? Team boss Carlos “Ocelote,” Rodríguez Santiago says: Last year they completely changed LoL because suddenly any player could go anywhere. This year they want to go even further.

Ocelote says he doesn’t claim any praise for the idea, it all comes from the players:

“I think if the team stays together and motivated, we’ll see that the game becomes looser and looser and that there are no more roles. Everyone is going everywhere, and it’s chaos. Controlled chaos.”

-The founder and owner of G2 Esports, Ocelote

However, Ocelote also says: If the role swap goes wrong, both would be ready to return to their positions.

Sign of the changed LoL

That’s the idea behind it: G2 Esports is considered a “creative team”, where the players roam a lot, so they don’t stay on the lane but interpret their roles freely. This was their strength in 2019 – it is difficult for opponents to adapt to this style.

For years, Koreans dominated LoL with a rigid, “structured” game in which you wear down, surround and tie up your opponent.

The style of G2 Esports and “new teams” is more chaotic, relying more on individual class: teams look for ganks early on, try to isolate opponents, ambush and gain early advantages.

To do this, it is important to leave the lane, again and again, to strike surprisingly with teleports and roams, but not to fall behind on your own lane. Especially Midlane and Jungle are crucial for this tactic.

G2 Esports had great success with this tactic. But they lost the Worlds against FunPlus Phoenix, a team that plays “even more chaotic” and freer than they did with the permanent roamer Doinb and his brilliant Jungle partner in LoL, Tian. Apparently, G2 Esports now wants to achieve more success with even more creativity and freedom in 2020.
