We have previously announced that due to taking time with their families in Korea, our top laner Expect and jungler Trick will not be on EU LCS stage for Week 1. Unfortunately, we have to inform that our mid laner Luka ‘Perkz’ Perkovic will not be able to play this week due to a sudden illness that renders him unable to travel and compete. We expect him to recover in time for Week 2 matches.
Up until the last moment we hoped that Perkz would recover in time for our first Summer Split match, however, the well-being and good health of our players is our main priority.
At G2 we never give up without a fight. We are extremely grateful to mid laner Jin ‘Blanc’ Sung-min, who has agreed to help us on the very short notice. Big thanks to Paris Saint-Germain and Bora ‘YellOwStaR’ Kim for allowing us to play with Blanc as an emergency substitute. We are sure that Blanc together with others will make his best to show a good performance against Team ROCCAT. No matter what, G2 will be fighting.
For this emergency player change G2 Esports will be facing a fine and the loss of the phase-two bans in today’s matches.
