One of the greatest League of Legends Championship Series players of all time, Sren “Bjergsen” Bjerg, has shattered the record for most kills in the series with an astonishing 2,274 kills throughout his career, overthrowing one of the series’ greatest ADCs, Jason “WildTurtle” Tran, in a legendary feat.

The player with the most career kills in LCS history is now officially Bjergsen, a mid-laner of Team Liquid who has participated in the league for more than ten years. Bjergsen was able to record his 2,274th kill in the fourth game of Liquid’s Playoffs series against 100 Thieves, accomplishing a title that no other player can claim to have accomplished.

Many fans probably have assumed that Bjergsen wouldn’t be able to get into the form that he was previously known for after returning from his retirement in early 2022. The 25-year-old veteran, however, continues to accomplish aspiring milestones through his consistent play and strong leadership, despite the constantly changing meta of LCS.

With over a decade of professional experience, Wildturtle, one of the finest ADCs in LCS history, formerly held the title of most career kills. In a similar vein, Zaqueri ‘Aphromoo’ Black of FlyQuest surpassed WildTurtle’s other record for the most games played in a career with an absurd 597 matches. With bot laner Steven “Hans Sama” Liv and top laner Gabriël “Bwipo” Rau playing as the main carries for Liquid, Bjergsen can try to extend his lead from WildTurtle for the all-time kill record in the LCS.

Despite the blast from Bjergsen, Liquid failed to secure a World Championship slot

While setting records and making new ones, Bjergsen and Liquid dropped the ball against 100 Thieves and were immediately relegated to the lower bracket of the 2022 LCS Summer Playoffs. The first two games were utterly dominated by 100 Thieves thanks to their incredible late-game team fighting. Although Liquid failed to establish any early leads, their skillful laning in games three and four allowed the squad to mount a stunning comeback.

Bjergsen inflicted substantial damage with his signature Zilean mid-pick, while Bwipo went into overdrive with nine kills on his Sett pick. However, the rivalry came to an abrupt conclusion as jungler Can “Closer” Çelik’s outstanding performance enabled Thieves to win the fifth and final game of the day. On the other hand, Team Liquid are on the brink of collapsing, and another poor showing could end their dreams of competing at the 2022 World Championship. Bjergsen and Team Liquid will next take on CLG in their quest for a spot at the Worlds.
