Perkz reportedly benched by Heretics ahead of 2024 LEC Spring Split

In a stunning professional League of Legends roster shakeup, Team Heretics mid laner Perkz has reportedly been benched from his starting position on the team today.

Heretics is set to make a move toward rookie mid laner Zwyroo as Perkz’s replacement, according to a report from Sheep Esports. Perkz played just one split with Heretics, and in that less-than-impressive four-week affair, Heretics finished in seventh place in the LEC with a regular split record of 4-5, then were promptly bounced from the Winter Split playoffs, losing both of their playoff series. In the winners bracket, Heretics were swept by Team BDS, and in the losers bracket, they were knocked out completely by SK Gaming after going up 1-0 in that series. Across those two playoff matches, Perkz posted a KDA of 2.7, as well as negative early-game gold and XP differentials, according to League stats site Games of Legends.
