LCS Playing Finals Behind on Patch 10.5 – Perkz Voices Frustration

After the first weekend of LCS finals has been and done, there are some hiccups players and teams aren’t happy about, a major one, playing on patch 10.5.

This may seem like a small factor to an outsider unfamiliar with the meta changes that different patches bring. They’re all still playing on the same patch right? Correct, but that isn’t the issue.

Cloud9’s new superstar mid-laner Perkz, raised complaints around the fact, the LCS is the only region in the world where the playoffs are being played on League of Legends Patch 11.5 instead of 11.6.

In an interview with Travis Gafford, the 22-year-old phenom said “it doesn’t make a lot of sense” that the league is playing a patch behind since this will delay their ability to improve and prepare for the upcoming 2021 Mid-Season Invitational.

A big set of changes to mid-lane champions such as Akali, Leblanc and Sylas will be sure to bring about a new meta in time for the Mid-Season Invitational.

Perkz continued to say that “as a pro player, this is a horrible experience.” Instead of being given time to train on the new patch in solo queue and in scrims, they have to continue preparing themselves to compete on an update that’s already outdated.

The 2021 LCS Mid-Season Showdown will continue on Saturday, March 27 with TSM vs. Evil Geniuses.
