- Gen.G’s Chovy is the best mid laner of this year’s LCK Summer Split
- He and his teammates dominate Riot’s All-LCK Team Lists
- The team’s next challenge lays at the 2022 World Championship
At the age of just 21 years old, Jeong “Chovy” Ji-hoon has already proven himself as one of the best mid laners in the LCK.
Chovy Scores a Double-Digit KDA
The 2022 LCK Summer Split recently ended with Gen.G’s amazing victory over T1. The team’s success obviously lies with its players, and one player, in particular, is leading the way in terms of KDA score, not just in his team, but all of the mid laners in the entire league.
We are talking about 21-year-old Chovy, who after years of setbacks, has finally become part of the big LoL scene. The mid laner’s skills shined brightly through the season, in which Gen.G dropped just a single game. During this time, Chovy scored an unparalleled 15 KDA, racking up 28 kills, 62 assists, and only six total deaths, according to data from Oracle’s Elixir.
Chovy proved himself to be a valuable asset to Gen.G’s arsenal. He played several champions during the season but by far his most influential pick was Azir. Playing with the Emperor of Shurima, Chovy had 12 kills and 36 assists with a 13-1 record from the start of the season to the end of the playoffs.
His Teammates Are Not Far Behind
Of course, Chovy might be a great player, but a League of Legends team consists of five. All of Gen.G’s players ended up on Riot’s All-LCK Team Lists in either the first or the second-placed team. A couple of other players that performed admirably were Peanut and Ruler. Many fans were ecstatic since they hadn’t seen Chovy link up with multiple other carry players since his days with Griffin.
His strong presence in the mid lane played well with Peanut’s aggressive and quick playstyle. It’s no wonder the latter was named the best jungler of the season. Meanwhile, Ruler, along with his support Lehends, had impeccable control over the bottom lane. The duo outshined their opponents in almost every match.
Although Gen.G struggled in the early stages of the competitive season, the team quickly found its footing and prepared their revenge against T1, who defeated them in spring. The LCK finals against T1 were an act of redemption and served as a suitable culmination to the season.
Now, Gen.G’s next challenge will be the 2022 World Championship, which begins on Thursday, September 29.
