Once blamed for TSM's failures, C9 Zven now stands atop LCS
After being considered Team SoloMid’s weakest link during the previous season, Zven is popping off under Cloud9’s banner. Two weeks into the 2020 LCS Spring Split, he has a perfect KDA, he’s a top farmer amongst the bot laners, and has the highest gold per minute.
To be more specific, Zven currently has 18 kills, 33 assists, and no deaths at all. This gives him a KDA score of 51. Not only does that score make for a perfect KDA due to 0 deaths, it’s also just a very high score. In comparison to statistical second-place ADC Yiliang "Doublelift" Peng, Zven’s KDA is much higher.
With 9.68 and 465 scores, Zven also has the highest creep score and gold per minute in the 2020 LCS, respectively. Thanks to him, Cloud9 is the team with the highest GPM as well.

Though these numbers are likely to fall as the season progresses, Zven is proving he’s not the washed out bottom laner TSM fans considered him to be last year. In fact, he’s performing a lot better with Cloud9 than he did last season.
Ironically, TSM just recently used Zven’s on-stage image voiced over with Søren "Bjergsen" Bjerg saying the team has had “quite a few failures in the last couple of years” in the 2020 promotional video, for which the team got called out by Zven's new teammates at Cloud9.
Zven isn’t the first player that was blamed for TSM’s failure the past couple of seasons. Their former jungler Jonathan "Grig" Armao was often talked about as the reason for TSM’s downfall, though he’s been doing well this year with Dignitas.
Fans have been critical of TSM’s coaching and management for a while, and the increasing evidence of pro players propsering after leaving the TSM environment. Zven's continued success is likely to further fuel to those concerns.
