Biography

Season 1

Lapaka's competitive League of Legends career began in late 2010, when he formed a team with DontMashMe called Team NICE!. The team disbanded shortly afterwards, and Lapaka was offered to join DontMashMe's new team, Team XXX.

Within a few weeks, Lapaka's team was picked up by gaming organization unRestricted in early 2011, where under their new team name they were able to find success and gain solid placings in several online tournaments. On August 25, 2011, unRestricted's League of Legends team was signed by gaming organization Curse. Lapaka was able to find moderate success in his new team, placing 5th-8th at IGN Proleague Season 3 - Atlantic City, 5th-6th at IEM Season VI - Global Challenge New York, and having several other notable tournament placings under Curse Gaming. Despite a promising start with Curse Gaming, Lapaka decided to leave Curse on October 19, 2011. For a short time, Lapaka was involved with Absolute Legends NA, but parted ways with them not long after.

During 2012, Lapaka was invited to participate in the IGN ProLeague SXSW All-Stars 2012 on the East team, playing as their jungler, where they were able to defeat the West Coast team 2-0.

Season 2

Lapaka was originally going to be one of the members of CLG's second North American team, Counter Logic Gaming Black, but eventually did not join. His spot as the jungler was filled by Zuna instead.

Trivia

  • Known for his WarwickSquare.png Warwick in Season 1.
  • Often believed to be of African American descent by the League of Legends community, Lapaka is actually from the Dominican Republic.
  • He has a very strong relationship with Counter Logic Gaming and has subbed for them in the past.
  • As an avid listener of reggeaton and Spanish rap, "Lapaka" was a frequently used word in the songs of those two genres which meant "packs of money". Luis decided upon his name as he was fond of the meaning and also due to the fact that the shortened form of both his real name, Luis Perez, and gaming name, Lapaka, is LP.
  • Luis is known for being one of the taller league players at 6'4".
