Bjergsen tops Doublelift, hits 2nd in all-time LCS kill count
Feb 14, 2022
The Danish LCS legend and Team Liquid mid laner Søren “Bjergsen” Bjerg surpassed a big milestone after beating FlyQuest in the LCS.
Bjergsen and Liquid closed out the second week of the 2022 LCS Spring Split with a convincing win over FlyQuest. This didn’t only put Liquid on a 3-1 record in the standings but also saw Bjergsen reach second place for most all-time kills in the LCS at a total of 2,099 kills.
This was enough to surpass none other than Yiliang “Doublelift” Peng, who retired in 2020 after almost seven years in the LCS. At the top of the all-time kill leaderboard is Immortals bot laner Jason “WildTurtle” Tran who is sitting at 2,257 all-time kills, according to the LCS.
Bjergsen pushes Team Liquid over FlyQuest in LCS Spring Split
Bjergsen took over second place after a solid performance on Corki, a champion that the Danish veteran has been strong with in 2022 thus far. Corki is currently considered one of the strongest mid laners, being able to deal a lot of late-game damage and generally act as a strong late-game insurance.
Bjergsen has played five games on Corki this season and has a 4-1 record. In all of the wins, Bjergsen has gotten a solid amount of kills, and has zero deaths. This has helped Liquid greatly in winning the LCS Lock In trophy and getting a great start to the split.
After returning as an active player for this season, many would have likely feared that Bjergsen wouldn’t be in the shape that he was previously known for. Even though there is still some work to do, the 25-year-old veteran is already showing consistent play and good leadership.
Moving forward, Bjergsen doesn’t look to be the main carry of the individually skilled Liquid roster, but instead the leader in the mid lane who is putting in reliable performances. Meanwhile, bot laner Steven “Hans Sama” Liv and top laner Gabriël “Bwipo” Rau are looking like the main carries.
This is already starting to look formidable and will likely mean plenty more kills for Bjergsen who will be chasing WildTurtle for the all-time kill record in the LCS for the rest of the season.
