- This victory was made possible thanks to the professional midlaner Bjergsen
Bjergsen proved his doubters wrong and led Team Liquid to victory in the 2022 LCS Lock-in tournament.
Team Liquid Defeated Evil Geniuses
Team Liquid has vanquished Evil Geniuses in the 2022LCS Lock-in finals, breaking their opponents’ perfect record and winning the event. This dramatic Liquid victory was made possible by the unmatched mid-lane player Søren “Bjergsen” Bjerg who joined the team a few months ago.
Bjergsen impressed everyone with his 15.6 kill-death ratio, cementing himself as one of the top players not only of the aforementioned game but of the whole tournament. Over the course of the 13 games Team Liquid played in the Lock-in, the elite midlaner was defeated but 8 times. Not only that, but Bjergsen also boasts one of the highest kill counts, taking fourth place for most kills in the event. Bjergsen also scored 83 total assists, helping his team defeat its adversaries.
Thanks to Bjergsen’s efforts, Liquid dethroned Evil Geniuses and took home the $150,000 prize.
People Wrongly Assumed Bjergsen Was Rusty
Before joining Team Liquid’s ranks, Bjergsen used to play for TSM and was acknowledged as one of the best mid-lane players out there. In 2021, Bjergsen took a break from competing and served as a coach for TSM’s LoL lineup. However, even with his guidance, TSM’s players failed to leave a mark on the 2021 esports season.
Bjergsen is among several people who have left TSM in recent times. When he announced he will be playing with Team Liquid, most people were convinced that one year of absence has left him rusty and he would fail to replicate his past successes.
While this turned out to be false, Bjergsen indeed needed to play a few competitive games to warm up before coming back to full power. This didn’t only apply to him as most of Liquid’s players initially lacked cohesion and needed a few games to synchronize their efforts. Yet, the players remained level-headed and demonstrated a high level of adaptability.
It will be interesting to see how Team Liquid will fare in the regular season once the Spring Split begins on February 5. The esports team is still encountering some setbacks, mainly with assembling its roster. Liquid recently acquired the support pro Jo “CoreJJ” Yong-in but he is yet to actually play with the team as he still doesn’t have a green card.
What this means for fans is that we are yet to see Liquid at full power.
