G2 Esports’ Luka “Perkz” Perković is fresh off his MSI-winning tournament run in Vietnam, and yet he is already giving out some spicy new takes on the best players in the world. The talented bottom laner gave out his international tier list for every role on his stream, from top lane to support.
It might have looked like there was bias in his rankings for his fellow G2 members but they do actually have an argument for being a top-tier player in their role. Meanwhile, there were some interesting placements that he needed to explain further to his viewers.
Here is his full tier list. You can decide where he was joking and where he was not.
- S+ Tier – TheShy, Wunder, season six Perkz
- S Tier – Zoom, Gimgoon, Sword, Kiin
- A+ Tier – Rascal, Bwipo (on Aatrox only)

- B Tier – Broken Blade, Licorice, Bwipo

Perkz does have a few players repeating on his lists, like his teammate and mid lane superstar Rasmus “Caps” Winther. He splits Caps into two personalities—Claps and Craps. Perkz says that when Caps plays at his best, he is the best mid laner in the world. When Caps underperforms, however, he is still better than most mid laners.
The AD carry also spoke about why he placed Team Liquid jungler Jake “Xmithie” Puchero in the A+ tier over people like Cloud9’s Dennis “Svenskeren” Johnsen and Fnatic’s Mads “Broxah” Brock-Pedersen. He mentioned that in many of TL’s victories against Invictus Gaming, Xmithie played very well and his jungle pathing was good.
He also acknowledged that some of his rankings were due to him not watching a lot of the other players’ games, so they might not be too accurate. Ultimately, while there might be a bit of bias in Perkz’s choices, his ranking is still pretty understandable once you get past the obvious trolling.
