Wrong call costs team game
July 31, 2018
Bjergsen earned a 2/0/1 KDA during his team's loss against FLY on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Although Bjergsen had strong mechanical play against FlyQuest, his performance was not up to par as he made a critical mistake shotcalling for his team. After he found a lead for himself outside of lane, Bjergsen began playing aggressively with his team in an attempt to put TSM in the driver's seat. Unfortunately, this aggression was exactly what caused his team to be defeated. Calling for his team to continue pushing despite the enemy team going for a backdoor, Bjergsen's decision quickly backfired, causing his team to regret the decision immediately. Although he tried to recall, there were enough members of FlyQuest present that they were able to stop his team's recalls, allowing the carries to finish off TSM's base. As a result, TSM was defeated in 32 minutes.
Quiet in defeat
July 23, 2018
Bjergsen finished his team's defeat against OpTic with a 0/2/6 KDA on Galio.
ANALYSIS
Although he had a decent performance during his team's early game, Bjergsen could not keep things up against OpTic. After roaming to begin picking up kills, he fell behind in farm, giving the enemy mid laner an opportunity to take over the game and roam for his own team. As fights erupted, Bjergsen was able to disrupt the enemy team but not deal nearly as much damage as the enemy carry. With the rest of his team lacking in damage, all he could do was delay his team's deaths. Unable to turn fights around, he fell and was forced to watch his base be demolished, giving OpTic a 33-minute victory.
Can't throw enough stones to stop 100 Thieves
July 15, 2018
Bjergsen earned a 3/4/4 KDA on Taliyah in Team SoloMid's loss to 100 Thieves.
ANALYSIS
Bjergsen was objective focused early as his first roam secured the first Drake of the game for TSM. However, he wasn't so lucky when it came to teamfighting as his first kill of the game didn't happen until after the 22-minute mark. When Bjergsen finally started to make some good plays it was too little too late. TSM lost most of its base before desperately trying to contest Baron which resulted in it being aced and losing the game.
Does what he can to try and bring home the win
June 23, 2018
Bjergsen finished Team SoloMid's loss to Clutch Gaming on Saturday with a 0/5/4 KDA.
ANALYSIS
While his KDA certainly looks plenty rough, Bjergsen did have some solid moments throughout this match. Usually, his deaths came while trying his best to give TSM the edge in teamfights. He used Anivia's bevy of CC options to try and lock down members of Clutch, which was the only fighting chance that TSM had at a win in this game. It simply boiled down to TSM not having enough options to contend with Clutch in the late game fights that allowed Clutch to eventually walk away with a 45-minute win.
Gets results with Ryze
February 26, 2018
Bjergsen finished off TSM's Sunday win over OpTic Gaming with a 6/1/4 KDA.
ANALYSIS
Bjergsen's Ryze is known for clever use of Realm Warp in order to rotate about the map, but in this game Bjergsen shined in skirmishes and teamfights. His ultimates were still superb, but this time they were used to chase down enemies or gank opponents, as well as escape from bad situations. By the time he reached late-game status, his damage was truly insane, allowing him and Hauntzer to win out completely on a 2-vs-4 fight with OpTic end the game immediately after.
Rough outing on Azir
February 19, 2018
Bjergsen earned an 0/2/0 KDA on Azir in Team SoloMid's loss to Clutch Gaming on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Bjergsen had plenty of time to reach Azir's great late game scaling but he couldn't really accomplish much in teamfights. As Team SoloMid got picked apart throughout the mid and late game, Bjergsen was pretty much forced to clear minions waves. There was little chance of coming back after a second Baron power play from Clutch Gaming ripped through two inhibitors.
TSM's rock in the mid lane
February 12, 2018
Bjergsen went 1/1/9 as TSM found victory over CLG on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Bjergsen continued his streak of solid play on Sunday, this time on Galio. The game was very slow until the 18-minute mark when a 5-vs-5 teamfight broke out in the mid lane. Bjergsen played a large part in winning it for TSM with his crowd control and continued to be a key part of TSM's engage all game. With only MikeYeung's Jax really having a chance at getting in on his own, Bjergsen's Heroic Entrance was critical to TSM's game-long success in teamfights.
Consistency continues
January 28, 2018
Bjergsen ended TSM's Saturday victory over OpTic Gaming with a KDA of 2/0/7.
ANALYSIS
TSM first-picked Azir for Bjergsen and he ultimately proved that it was worth it. Despite not making any real plays throughout the game, Bjergsen continued his recent role as TSM's rock, putting out consistently high damage in teamfights while avoiding death, and zoning OpTic off of objectives.
Doesn't get much support in loss
January 21, 2018
Bjergsen put up a 4/0/5 KDA in Team SoloMid's loss to FlyQuest on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
TSM may have been taken down in this game, but Bjergsen tried his best to keep that from becoming a reality. He picked up kills from the very start with his signature Xerath, but it simply wasn't enough to keep this team ahead. This game was a nice example of why TSM just can't be the Bjergsen train this Split. His prowess alone is not enough to pick up wins and now TSM is 0-2 going into the second week.
Can't Ryze to the occasion
January 21, 2018
Bjergsen ended TSM's Saturday loss to Team Liquid with a KDA of 1/0/0.
ANALYSIS
Bjergsen's Ryze managed to get through this game with solid farm, TSM's only kill, and no deaths, but that's all that can be said for him. Just as it was at Worlds 2017, Bjergsen was the most solid member of his team, but did little to nothing to help them actually win the game. If TSM want to find success in this season, they will need Bjergsen to actively step up as a playmaker for the team, rather than maintain his current role as something of a pacifist.
Dominates in TSM's one sided win
October 14, 2017
Bjergsen finished Saturday's win over Misfits with a 6/1/10 KDA as Cassiopeia.
ANALYSIS
Bjergsen helped TSM run riot over Misfits in what was a very important victory on Saturday. He was involved in 16 of 19 kills, tying for the team high kill total with six. Bjergsen's dominance helped TSM crush Misfits while leveling their head-to-head record against the European side.
Not much impact in mid lane
October 14, 2017
Bjergsen finished TSM's loss to Flash Wolves on Saturday with a KDA of 1/2/2.
ANALYSIS
Bjergsen simply seemed to just be a bystander in this game against Flash Wolves. He had a kill and a couple assists, but he didn't have anywhere near the impact that you would expect from the strong mid laner. His deficiencies were even more clear given the fact that Maple was roaming the map, making big plays all throughout this game. TSM just simply looked outclassed and lethargic in this game that puts their tournament lives on the life support. They'll need Flash Wolves to be Misfits in the final game of the day to bring about a tiebreaker to decide the second seed from the group.
Flawless in victory over WE
October 12, 2017
Bjergsen ended TSM's victory over Team WE with a 4/0/4 KDA.
ANALYSIS
Bjergsen's Corki was absolutely immaculate in this game. He kept even in CS early on before finding his team's first kill all by himself against xiye's Syndra. He was TSM's biggest strength in this game, dealing out tons of damage and becoming the catalyst around which TSM found all of its successful fights. He finished with a deathless 4/0/4 KDA for perfect kill participation.
King of North America
September 3, 2017
Bjergsen went an overall 12/9/35 in TSM's 3-1 Sunday victory over Immortals.
ANALYSIS
Sunday marked Bjergsen's fifth North American championship victory, and it was easy to see why in this series. His Syndra took an early lead against Pobelter's Galio in Game 1, and while he didn't pile up the kills this game, he did land some crucial stuns and picks to help TSM snowball to a win. Unfortunately, five mid bans from IMT forced Bjergsen onto Kassadin in Game 2, and while he did well in lane, the lack of wave clear became a problem as TSM fell behind. Bjergsen's best and most important performances came in Games 3 and 4, however. On Orianna for Game 3, Bjergsen's clutch Shockwave onto Cody Sun's Jinx at Elder Drake was arguably what turned the tables in TSM's favor, putting them on match point heading into Game 4. On Corki for this game, Bjergsen was able to scale massively despite TSM falling far behind, which was a large part of the reason they were able to pull out a miracle comeback.
Fantastic series all the way through
August 29, 2017
Bjergsen posted an 18/8/30 KDA in Team SoloMid's 3-1 series victory over Team Dignitas on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Bjergsen played Kassadin in Game 1, Cassiopeia in Games 2 and 3, and finished out the series on Lucian. He assumed his role as the leader of TSM, as per usual, and made sure to leave his mark upon the series. Each game saw the Dane become one of the main carries for his team, and he hardly fell short. Even in TSM's sole game loss, Bjergsen was still a stud and had a solid output. Overall, Bjergsen is still great, and Sunday was only another day in the office for him.
