Luka Perković, known as “Perkz,” is a 22-year-old Croatian League Of Legends player who has been representing Cloud9 for over seven months. Previously, he had been playing for G2 Esports since 2015.

In week 5 in LCS, Cloud9 faced Immortals in game four and managed to overpower the Immortals in a 33-minutes long match. But, one of the most interesting parts about the match that Perkz was wearing a cap for some reason.

Until the post-match interview with the LCS broadcast, we didn’t know why the iconic player was wearing it. According to Perkz, the lights are really bright and his eyes are really sensitive to them because he had eye surgery about three weeks ago.

However, LCS refused to lower the lights for the past three weeks for some reason, but they did allow him to wear a cap in the end. Thanks to this improvement, Perkz mentioned that he feels more comfortable on the stage.

Furthermore, Perkz also pointed out in the interview that he will smurf on every game from now because he feels much better and said that he is so happy to be finally free after struggling from the lights.

Perkz said:

“As you can see, I’m finally able to wear a cap. I have been having a hard time adjusting to the stage a bit because the lights are really bright and my eyes are very sensitive because I had eye surgery.

Riot didn’t want to accommodate me to lower down the lights for the last three weeks. So I finally have a doctor’s note that I can wear a cap. So it’s honestly wonderful, I feel completely unleashed. I feel like I’m gonna smurf on every game now.”

Further in the conversation, Perkz also talked about their Akali pick and how it fit their playstyle against Immortals as well as sharing his opinio about the upcoming changes for the mages.
