Perkz Admits He Considered Retirement Before Vitality 'Super Team' Formation

Perkz Admits He Considered Retirement Before Vitality 'Super Team' Formation
Team Vitality

Team Vitality has had a storied history of purchasing top-tier esports talent, reaching the elite heights in the likes of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) and Rocket League, and now they've set their sights on conquering Europe in League of Legends by splashing the cash.

After a sub-par LEC season in 2021, Team Vitality has dropped the bag in the off-season, forming what's being described as a "super team", including the former G2 star Luke "Perkz" Perković, returning him to Europe after a year in North America with Cloud9.

However, the off-season was less than plain sailing for the superstar, who has now admitted he considered retirement before signing with Vitality.

Perkz Admits He Considered Retirement

With eight European Championships to his name and a World Championships Runners-up medal, Perkz is considered to be one of the greatest talents the West has ever seen, making him part of the furniture when Worlds rolls around.

However, the Mid-laner recently confessed that he may have packed it all in this off-season.

Speaking in an interview with Forbes after signing with Vitality, Perkz said, With the hard times, I did consider, like, retiring or taking a break or something because it can get very stressful at times. Like last year, I was considering it as well. Honestly."

However, he continued to say that they were just thoughts, and he knew he had contractual obligations with Cloud9 before he could hang up the mouse. "I started thinking about it, potentially, but it was just like, just thoughts," he continued. "Because I know I have a two-year contract and the buy out was big before, so the buy out is probably gonna be big again."

Perkz Believes LEC Return Is A "Fresh Breath"

Perkz was able to find a suitable team to activate his buyout though, returning to the LEC in Vitality's new super team. Joining alongside Barney "Alphari" Morris and Matyáš "Carzzy" Orság, Perkz now claims he's got a breath of fresh air.

"Now that I'm back in Europe, I kind of have a fresh breath," he told Forbes. "Also, I feel like I can kind of like build my life here, which is something I wasn't ready to do in North America. So as long as I can manage everything, I think I can continue to play for a long time."

Having returned to Europe to attempt to overthrow his former teammates at G2 Esports, we can expect Perkz' usual in-game fireworks on a regular basis.
