A new record has been set in League of Legends, although it’s not a good one. One player on EUW has died a record 700 times in a 151 minute ranked game, smashing the previous record for the most deaths in one game.

There’s dying, there’s ‘turbo inting,’ and then there’s this. While every League player has had a bad game every now and then, no one else in history has had a terrible game quite like ‘Skippy’ did during one EUW match.

According to stats site League of Graphs, the Silver ranked player has set a new record for the most deaths in one LoL game, tallying 700 in 151 minutes.

The King of Disco Nunu’s has been crowned, with one player racking up 700 deaths in one game.

While the game looks to be set up, it’s still nevertheless impressive. Averaging five deaths a minute, the king of Disco Nunus ran it down for more than two hours, feeding kills into the enemy Ahri.

They ‘optimized’ their build for maximum death efficiency, only leveling W, and building movement speed items like Boots of Mobility and Twin Shadows. However, Dead Man’s Plate might have been a good pickup if they wanted to do it even faster.

Once the 700 death mark was crested, they were dutifully rewarded with the win. After a monumental effort like that, you’d almost feel obliged to.

There’s running it down, and then there’s this.

The previous record was held by EUW player Wukony, who died 686 times in a 207 minute Janna game. Both records were set in Ranked Flex, where it would be more likely to queue into a five-stack of friends to pull it off with ease.

What makes this new record so outstanding is how fast they managed to constantly die. The Nunu and Willump died at just under five deaths a minute, which was noticeably faster than the 3.5 deaths a minute of Wukony’s effort.

The Ahri, who was fed the majority of the kills, fell just short of the kill record. That’s set at 694 by ‘d5 janna otp’ on EUW, and was set in the same game as Wukony’s excessively-huge former death record.

Riot Games
Skippy and Wukony’s records are unlikely to be broken any time soon.

Those two records far eclipse other entries into both categories. The third-highest kills in one game is set at 322, while the third-most deaths is only at 169. It’s also 41 times more than the record set in League of Legends pro play, at 17 deaths, held by Chan ‘KoaLa’ Roong Han.

While it’s not advised that you’d try and break the record in this way ⁠— after all, it wouldn’t pass the sniff test from Riot ⁠— if you can match into a group of mates in flex queue, you might just be able to try it out for yourself.

After the departure of star LoL player Rekkles from the Fnatic bot lane, the black and orange LEC Gods have finally announced his replacement: Astralis’ Upset. 

The LEC has certainly seen a shake up this year. With Luka ‘Perkz’ Perković leaving to join Cloud9 across the pond, a spot on the G2 roster opened up.

This was quickly filled by Martin ‘Rekkles’ Larssen, the former face of Fnatic, the team’s fans were wondering who would be his replacement. It’s big shoes to fill considering the legacy that Rekkles has left in the Fnatic jersey, so who has chosen to step up to the plate?

With LEC fans debating between Elias ‘Upset’ Lipp and Juš ‘Crownshot’ Marušič the race was on to see who Fnatic would sign.

Fnatic sign Astralis ADC Upset

When Crownshot announced that he would not be playing in any League of Legends tournament this year, fans were pretty certain that Upset would be the future ADC for the black and orange legends.

Therefore, when Fnatic announced Upset as ADC earlier today fans may not have been shocked, but they’re certainly excited to know who hold the future of the Fnatic botlane.

Upset has been a constantly high performing player ever since his days with Schalke 04. Taking what many believed to be a step up when he joined Origen (now Astralis) last season, Origen’s disappointing performance in the second split meant that roster readjustments were clearly needed.

With the ADC position being the least of Origen’s worries, it was pretty clear that Upset would be looking for a more competitive team to carve out his future with.

Will he be able to challenge the dynasty that Rekkles has left in his wake, or will he forever be caught in the Swedish legend’s shadow? Only time will tell, but we know Upset’s going to work extra hard to make his name sit side by side with the former Fnatic bot laner.
