Rookie Lodik Dominates Mid-Season Invitational Opening Days
The Mid-Season Invitational is where the best players in League of Legends compete, and a rookie is making waves with his incredible fantasy performance.
Stanislav “Lodik” Kornelyuk, a Russian rookie gunslinger, has been dominating at MSI. He helped Gambit Esports secure three crucial wins in their quest to challenge the world.
Although we’re only at the Play-In Stage, where teams from smaller regional leagues fight for a chance to face teams from China, Korea, North America, and Europe, Lodik’s performance is still impressive.
Lodik scored an impressive total of 259.36 Skrilla fantasy points in three games, averaging 86.5 points per game. This is far ahead of the next best player, Supermassive’s Berkay “Zeitnot” Aşıkuzun, who scored 78.8 SKPPG. Lodik achieved this with a remarkable 24/5/18 KDA line, boasting the highest kill participation and damage-per-minute numbers of the tournament so far.
In a close match against Thailand’s Ascension Gaming, Lodik made a signature play that turned the tide in Gambit’s favor. With a 1-vs-3 situation, Lodik managed to score a double kill and finish off the final member of Ascension, securing the win for Gambit.
As the tournament progresses and top teams from around the world enter the competition, it will be harder for Lodik to maintain his exceptional performance. However, the rookie has proven himself since joining the Gambit lineup mid-season and is showing no signs of slowing down. If you’re looking for a solid fantasy play for Day 3, Lodik and Gambit Esports are the ones to watch.
The third day of play at MSI will begin at 4am CT tomorrow.
