Scout – LPL Edward Gaming
EDG Scout and the rest of the defending world champions did not qualify to the event as they would have expected, as they went through a lot of battles and hardships to come back to their former form. As an individual, the experienced Scout did wonders during the playoffs as he faced against incredible mid-laners such as Xiaohu, Knight, and Doinb several times to assist his team grab a post in the 2022 Worlds main event.
Rather unexpectedly, they didn’t win the LPL championship this time around, Scout was still able to be even for the most total kills amongst the other playoff mid-lane mains with the highest KDA ratio included. Scout picked a total of 13 champions in the summer split, this makes him a perfect playmaker and carry at the same time for a roster searching for a repeat Worlds title.
There is something absolute, if Scout is in form no other mid-laner will be able to stop him. Outside of maybe our next entry.
