The first phase of the Mid-Season Invitational ended this Sunday with the qualifications of T1 and Saigon Buffalo for the Rumble Stage. They join G2 Esports, Evil Geniuses, RNG and PSG Talon after a group stage criticized by many fans for its format and the target of some controversy. To stay on the purely sporting aspect, it is time to analyze the statistics of these first days of competition. At level from the KDAeven if this statistic is not the most evocative of a player’s level, we find a G2 Esports player in the lead in the person of Victor “Flakked” Lirola Tortosa, with 16.8 from KDA.
The Spanish ADC made a very good start to the tournament even if the adversity was not necessarily up to the level of G2 Esports. In the rest of the classification logically appear the Asians of RNG and T1. To accompany Flakked on the podium of this ranking, we find the jungler of RNG, Yan “Wei” Yang-Wei, with 12.6 from KDA and Moon “Oner” Hyeon-joon-je who own a KDA of 10. Behind this trio, we find two midlaners, Lee “Faker” Sang-hyeok with 9.3 from KDA just in front of Rasmus “caPs” Borregaard Winther and his 8.5 from KDA.
Among the other notable statistics of this debut of MSI, only one player has achieved a Pentakill in the person of Chen “GALA” Wei, who has had an additional canceled. At level solokillshe’s his teammate at RNG, Li “Xiaohu” Yuan-Hao, who scores the most with 11 solokillsbefore caps and Joseph Joon “jojopyun” Pyunboth at 8 solo kills. Although statistics do not mean everything, it is clear three dominating teams, G2 Esports, RNG and T1, all undefeated in this tournament so far. We can’t wait to see them face off in a few days during the Rumble Stage.
