G2 Esports star Rasmus ‘Caps’ Winther broke an obscure record in his impressive first match of LEC Spring 2020, where he debuted as an AD-carry. 

G2 stunned the League of Legends pro scene with an unexpected role swap at the end of 2019, with Caps moving to the bot lane, while Luka ‘Perkz’ Perković took over the middle position.

It was a move few could have expected, as Caps had never played professionally in the bot lane, and the team had just had a historic year – winning both LEC splits, the Mid-Season Invitational, and coming in second at the World Championship.

Caps made the switch to the bot lane and is already breaking records.

Regardless, the unexpected happened and the first week went better than anyone could expect. The European squad started the competitive season with two wins, with Caps performing incredibly well and even breaking a record in his first match.

In their opening match of the season, the Dane put up insane numbers, securing nine kills and 12 assists in just 34 minutes. Not only that, but he also went the game without dying – an impressive feat in and of itself.

Reddit user HiderDK then pointed out an obscure but stunning statistic. Caps had secured more kills and assists, while also being a part of all of his team’s kills and not dying once, than any other ADC player in the history of the pro scene.

In Caps’s first game as an ADC he became the first player in a major league to have 100% kill participation, 21 or more kills+assists and 0 deaths. from leagueoflegends

Even though that may sound a bit tailored specifically to the situation, it’s still incredibly impressive and shows just how monstrous his performance was.

A player that had never played the ADC position before was involved in all 21 kills and didn’t die for the whole game. With someone like that, it’s no wonder that G2 are one of the best teams in the world.

TFT Patch 10.20b notes: Spirit nerf, Aphelios & Ashe nerfs, more

Ahead of the next update, Riot have slid in a little addendum to TFT Patch 10.20 with a “b-patch” hotfix. The devs are keeping a keen eye on Spirit, Aphelios, Ashe, and more, as they look to tone down the “overperformers” urgently.

While Riot seemingly did away with the b-patches during the latter stages of Galaxies, the mid-update changes are back. In TFT Fates, Riot will be keeping more of a keen eye during the week following a major update to potentially drop even more changes.

They were happy after the set’s launch initially, but there have been a few overperformers in TFT Patch 10.20 Riot want to tone down ahead of the next update. They aren’t doing too much though, as they want the next patch to be a big one.

“[TFT Patch] 10.21 is shaping up to be a big patch, but these changes felt worth getting out a little earlier. B-Patches are limited to number changes, so bigger changes have to wait,” developer Stephen ‘Mortdog’ Mortimer explained after the October 7 update went live.

Spirit 4 nerfed, Brawler-Ashe targeted

The major changes in TFT Patch 10.20b are to Spirit, Ashe, and Aphelios. The two champions, and the trait, have been the crux of many of the meta compositions.

Looking at Spirit, Riot has decided the Patch 10.20 changes weren’t enough originally. Spirit 4 is being nerfed by another 10% bonus attack speed, dropping from 80% of the mana cost to 70%. This should hopefully bring it more in line, although without Ahri nerfs being shipped, that remains to be seen.

Brawler-Ashe has been one of the most consistent compositions of the set so far. With Ashe being able to dish out huge amounts of damage with an in-built attack speed steroid, she’s risen to be one of the best units in the set. Riot will be toning that back though, reducing her ability’s attack speed at one and two-star.

Aphelios carry is also another popular composition. Riot has deemed his ability to generate turrets a bit too efficient though, so he’s losing some of his starting mana so he can’t automatically start firing away.

Janna and Veigar are also being targeted in TFT Patch 10.20b. Janna’s total mana is going up from 50 to 60, while Veigar is losing damage on his Dark Blossom ability at all levels.
