Cloud9’s new AD carry has kicked off the 2020 League of Legends Championship Series season to an explosive start, accumulating a deathless KDA, the highest CS per minute, and the most solo kills in his position.

Jesper “Zven” Svenningsen is at the top of his game and looks like one of the biggest prospects of the Spring Split. He and support Philippe “Vulcan” Laflamme have dominated the bot lane in the two opening weeks of the LCS, winning all four of their games.

In the process, Zven has come out on top of the standings with 18 kills, 33 assists, and zero deaths. He has a CS per minute of 9.7, a gold differential at 15 minutes of 616, a CS differential at 15 minutes of 16, and an XP differential at 15 minutes of 911. Stats wise, this makes him the top of his position in almost every stat possible.

In the last two years, Zven was considered to be one of Team SoloMid’s “problems.” The team had high expectations this season, but with the additions of Zven and support Alfonso “Mithy” Rodriguez, they narrowly missed Worlds for the first time in history. Zven took a large part of the blame, despite many contributing factors.

For the current year, Zven has decided to depart ways with Team Solo Mid and look for new opportunities. He did not reveal his options but in the end, he controversially replaced ADC Zachary “Sneaky” Scuderi in the bot lane—the last remaining original member of C9. The fans were rightly suspicious of the roster swap, but it seems to have worked out in the end.

After Cloud 9 lost two key members in Sneaky and Svenskeren, fans were doubting wherever they would be able to perform to their previous year’s strengths, but as the current results show it has not been an issue and the team managed to adapt to the new players without hassle.

Zven alongside Vulcan, the ex-Clutch Gaming support has been stomping most bot lanes in the League, their synergy is unmatched and hard work was put during the off-season by the coaching staff to create this cohesive roster. Vulcan was another great acquisition by the staff of Cloud 9 who seems to have an eagle eye for talent eager to prove themselves.

Will Zven continue to perform so well and when will his KDA deathless spree end? Those are two questions that most players watching the League Championship Series ask themselves right now.
