Jungle Hard Carries in the LCS

Dardoch dealt the most damage to champions for Team Liquid in their win against Dignitas earlier today, playing Nidalee and doing 31.2% damage share. That’s the second-highest Jungler damage share seen in the LCS so far in 2016, behind Rush’s 31.7% in Cloud9’s loss to Team Impulse.

Dardoch was just the 5th LCS Jungler to have his team’s highest damage share this year, and just the third to do it in a victory.

Svenskeren and Trick also had their teams’ highest damage, both playing Graves. Rush on Nidalee and Kirei on Graves had their teams’ highest damage, but in losses.

Jungle Carry Kings

Rush had his team’s highest damage share five times in 2015. That included three Evelynn games and two Nidalee games, and four of the five games were wins.

Jankos had the largest LCS Jungler carry performance of 2015 or 2016, with 38.2% damage share on Nidalee while playing Origen in Summer 2015.

Early-Game Kings: Summer’s Most Impactful Jungle Players

The early game is the Jungler’s playground. Roaming through the fog of war, the Jungler stalks their prey, attacking both the witless monsters of the Rift and a far more dangerous target: live opponents.

In Summer 2015, some Junglers had more early-game impact than others. Players like Rush, Shook, Chaser, and Karsa rolled out gank after gank, leading the charge over the first 15 minutes. But how did their early-game results compare to the other players in their leagues? Who were the strongest (and weakest) early-game Junglers across all regions?

The charts below show the early-game influence and play styles of all Junglers who played at least 10 games during the Summer regular season in the NA LCS, EU LCS, LMS, and LCK. The LPL unfortunately does not make their data available.

Top 10 Free Agents From the NA LCS

Every offseason, rosters undergo major shakeups as each organization tries to push itself over the top. With the World Championships all wrapped up, here are 10 of the biggest names to keep an eye on from 2015’s NA LCS talent pool.

10. Porpoise, Jungle, Immortals (formerly Team8)

3.1 KDA, 78.3% KP, 47% FBP, 0.94 WPM

It’s possible Porpoise will remain with Immortals (formerly known as Team8), but with the new ownership and the departure of Caltrlolz, Porpoise may also be ready to search for greener pastures. If he takes the free agent route, he should draw some decent attention from teams looking for a well-rounded Jungler who saves them a crucial import slot.

Possible Destinations: Immortals, Team SoloMid, Gravity, Cloud9
