Cloud9 AD carry Berserker has set a new record in the LCS finals by being the first North American player to record the highest KDA in ten years.
This is not a surprise for a carry that had a memorable series against 100 Thieves JUST LAST Monday.
Winning the LCS Championship and the official “player of the series” awards were another cap to his feathers.
Berserker almost set an LCS record for the highest KDA in a single grand finals series with a mark of 47.0 during the three-game sweep.
His 47.0 KDA against 100 Thieves on Sunday, 11th Sept, becomes the highest KDA by any LCS player in a grand finals match since 2013. In that season’s summer finals, a C9 player in Meteos had posted a 54.0 KDA against TSM.
Berserker, the best carry in North America, finished the match with a scoreline of 23/1/24. However, Berserker missed out on Meteos’ record by seven combined kills and assists.
His performance was the closest to breaking a record that has stood up throughout the LCS’ history.
Having almost broken a decade-old record, Berserker’s performance is believed to be the closest player.
The last time a player got close to posting a KDA of at least 40 in the LCS finals was in the 2014 Spring Split finals. During this period, four out of five C9 starters recorded 40 KDA in the same match against TSM.
C9 support LemonNation’s KDA of 43.0 in that series was the closest any player had come to Meteos’ record until this year.
Berserker came out second across the entirety of the LCS Championship. Berserker held the KDA among all players with a mark of 6.1.
League stats site Oracle’s Elixir also revealed that only his teammate Jensen held a higher KDA during this summer’s playoffs.
C9 have officially qualified for the 2022 League World Championship as North America’s No. 1 seed for the first time since 2013.
They will battle in Group A against T1 and Edward Gaming.
