Role swaps don’t happen very often in competitive League of Legends, so when Perkz, one of the best mid laners in Europe decided to play AD carry, most people weren’t sure how it would work out.

But he did that in part because one player was worth it. Mikyx was good enough to make one of the most decorated players in Europe toss his legacy aside and risk it all on a role swap.

The pair was underestimated over and over again. But despite a wrist injury, despite the history of role swaps, despite the doubters, their success created one of the best bot lane duos in the world.
