first time jack isn't a complete cheapskate! congrats whooo!

Jack is a friendly guy, but I seriously question his decision making. Carlos legit ripped him off with that move lmao. If youd pair Perkz with toptier players I could understand it, but his team isnt even good.
Rero پیش ماه
Now that I've had time to digest this info some worries come up. 1) Will Perkz retain his form or was it due to coaching staff/teammates? 2) Will the culture change to lift up Perkz and the rest of the team? 3) If C9 don't win LCS, does he stay?
ShadowThruNight پیش ماه
It is a myth that Perkz was the brain behind G2s play. When you look at comes you realize that everyone made calls ingame and that Jankos and Caps mostly dictated the early game. I doubt he will be good looking at the other parts of the roster. Fudge and Zven are whatever. Blaber is a norbainer.

As sad as I was when I found out that Perkz was moving to NA, C9 seems to be the best team he could have gone to.
Ernest پیش ماه
Perkz' move is the biggest thing in Western League Of Legends history. If Perkz doesn't perform in NA, other League pro's will probably not believe they could deal with the issues that plague NA. They will only come to NA for the paycheck, and actually treat it like a retirement home. The NA League of Legends scene will continue to die out. - We all know the game doesn't have many new players. However, if Perkz does perform it could make League Of Legends popular again. I believe!

Another delusional CEO who thinks importing one best player will make his team good. It takes 5. Perkz will probably cash out that 12M and comeback to EU next year.
Rero پیش ماه
Fudge is the most promising top laner in NA, already having gone to worlds with a bad OCE team and winning a few games. Blaber is the BEST jungler NA has and is still improving. Again, another young talented player Perkz is self explanatory Zven is back in form kicking major ass and being essentially a gret anchor for C9 stability Vulcan is the best support NA has as well. The guy who pretty much brought CLUTCH GAMING to worlds and has already earned an LCS title.... So yeah C9 have young hungry players ready to fucking dominate... It's not delusional, it's inspirational and hopeful

fanboying about a player is dangerous, give a player power in the team dynamic which he may should not have, lets see how it all plays out. if handled correctly it works pretty well would be my guess. but this doesnt seem like handling it extremly well. sure hes a very good player and you gotta respect and push that narrative but how he talked about signing him and no matter what, all in is ... a bit much for me. wish c9 the best of luck anyway :)
ShadowThruNight پیش ماه
Carlos ripped him off basically. Jack paid a ridicilous amount of money and is putting him into a team with mediocre individuals lol. Its not like Nisqy was one of the bigges issues last year lol.

HiGenie پیش 2 ماه
Not a C9 fan, so can someone please elaborate on what Jack meant when he said Licorice wasn’t a good fit for the teams “culture” (over Fudge). I’ve always liked Licorice and he seemed like a dependable top? Anyone care to share their opinion?
⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻ پیش 2 ماه
It honestly does sound like Licorice was the issue in terms of ego perhaps, or refusing to be a team player overall
⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻ پیش ماه
@ShadowThruNight, because that has shit all to do with my statement :D My statement was about ego and team play. I said nothing about game play or mechanical play. Just because you don't like him doesn't mean you have to hijack my comment and make it about gameplay issues.
ShadowThruNight پیش ماه
@⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻ what do you mean by that lol? FOr sure Licorice was an issue, but Blaber also. You could see it in his play, he played like a no brain jungler for most of the summer split. Taking bad fights, bad pathing, etc.
⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻ پیش ماه
@ShadowThruNight, not really. Awhile after this it came out Licorice would literally not play with the team, or would only do scrimms in a completely different room. He didn't mesh AT ALL with the players on the team.
ShadowThruNight پیش ماه
it was mostly Licorice and Blaber. Blaber is a no-brainer and has always been one.

I think having a rookie like fudge in the team is a strategic move. They bring in Perkz, one of the greatest role models and leaders in the world to lift up this rookie to the sky.

I agree, Tactical improved a lot in a year possibly because of CoreJJ. Fudge could turn into a star player by learning from Perkz.

"the best western player was available" Believe what ever makes you sleep better at night, since you got fooled by G2. Carlos sold an overrated player in an exorbitant price and he managed to sign the best adc in western world and get some extra money aswell. by a FNC fan

Started watching LCS midway through spring 2015. I liked Winterfox because of the name, and switched to TSM randomly after seeing the disaster that WF was. Followed TSM religiously ever since. Highs, lows, Dyrus retiring, etc. Listening to Jack speak is so refreshing compared to Regi. I’ve heard the same crap from TSM management for years. Jack produces the results. I can’t bring myself to switch. But damn C9 is doing this region a favor every day.

'NA is competitive' 'Our goal is NA semi finals and getting out of groups' Like wtf. If I were Perkz I would be pissed off. They persuaded him to come by saying they want to win.

I see one problem i NA. We Have Jack from C9 who is American Carlos smart, sharp, he knows that he must invest to gain advantage. But it's only one jack and C9. And the problem is if you want your team to be trained and sharp you need to have others that drives you like G2 have FNC and MAD in 2020. And who will keep C9 that sharp? TL? TSM? That's the problem. And i think that Perkz might be not enough
