The G2 Esports and Fnatic rivalry is one as old as time itself, having been in fierce competition for Europe's number one League of Legends spot for neigh on a decade. However, the past two off-seasons has seen the rivalry enter its ugliest form, with players stuck in the middle, including the transfer sage of Luke "Perkz" Perkovic - and now G2 CEO Carlos "ocelote" Rodriguez has opened up about the saga post-Worlds 2020.

As the 2020 season concluded, G2 Esports lost one of their elite players, who contributed to back-to-back Worlds Semi-finals, one of which they won to become the second-best team in the world behind FunPlus Phoenix.

Perkz's transfer across the seas to LCS side Cloud9 was one that sent shockwaves throughout the western hemisphere, and although it wasn't his first choice move, the Croatian performed well and took the organisation back to Worlds after missing out a year prior.

Now, G2 Esports CEO Carlos has opened up about the well-known fact that Perkz wanted to force a move to Fnatic, and has admitted that he could have moved to any team in the world - apart from them.

Carlos Reveals He Told Perkz 'Fnatic Is Off The Table' In 2020

The often-vocal CEO took to Twitter on December 13 to do a live AMA, in which he was quizzed by fans about the saga, having seen much confusion unravel as the Mid-laner joined Team Vitality.

After admitting Perkz came to him to ask for a transfer to Fnatic, Carlos said, "I essentially told him that it was never going to happen."

He continued, "We've been working for what? four or five years together? And with 1000 conversations together we laugh at fanatic often, we always spoke about s**t, as friends do. It was understood that Fnatic was never going to be an option for him."

Carlos continued to reveal that Perkz came to him asking for a transfer to their rivals, despite the acknowledgement of their prior conversations. 
The G2 CEO said, "He gathered he made us gather my sports manager back then. As well as the manager of the League of Legends team and said, 'Hey, So I want to leave. I want to go to Fnatic.' It was in a cafeteria, and I said, 'well clearly this is never gonna happen.' So yeah, he punches the table, was angry, and just left. Very emotional."

Perkz is now a part of a "super team" at Team Vitality, rejoining the LEC from the LCS alongside Barney "Alphari" Morris, where he will go up against his former organisation in their revitalised roster, making for one of the most interesting LEC seasons ever.
