1. Jesper “Zven” Svenningsen (Cloud9)
2. Bae “Bang” Jun-sik (Evil Geniuses)

Were it not for the incredible start to the split Zven has been having, I would say Bang has been the most unexpectedly impressive ADC so far. After an uneven 2020 debut in NA, Bang came back with a vengeance this year. His 8.00 aKDA is one of the best in the league, his 81.8% kill participation leads the LCS, and his 611 damage per minute also leads the league.

3. Johnny “Altec” Ru (Immortals)
4. Kasper “Kobbe” Kobberup (TSM)
5. Johnson “Johnsun” Nguyen (Dignitas)
6. Ian Victor “FBI” Huang (Golden Guardians)
7. Cody “Cody Sun” Sun (100 Thieves)

On the other side of that coin, I would say that one-third of the way through the split, Cody Sun has been one of the most disappointing ADCs who isn’t named Doublelift. Last year, Cody Sun was able to get massive advantages through his superior laning. This split, despite the fact that he is receiving plenty of jungle pressure, his laning splits are +103 gold, -1 CS, and +107 experience differentials at 15.

While this could all easily be him adjusting to a new laning partner in Stunt (and it’s becoming quite clear that Vulcan was far better last year than the stats made him appear), I’m not going to panic on Cody yet. Despite being in a down year, he’s far closer to being in the top of the pack than down near Doublelift.

8. Trevor “Stixxay” Hayes (CLG)
9. Yiliang “Doublelift” Peng (Team Liquid)

A lot has been made of Doublelift’s struggles so far this split, particularly on Senna. I thought it would be useful to look at a few of his key stat splits on Senna versus the other champions he plays.

In two games played on non-Senna champions, Doublelift’s scoreline is a combined 10/4/5, a respectable 3.75 KDA. In four games he played on Senna, his overall scoreline is 6/7/11, a 2.43 KDA. While that may not seem like a lot, it becomes a lot more stark when you look at his gold splits (averaging 12.9k gold per game on Senna, 16.7k gold per game when not on Senna).

In short, I don’t think Doublelift is abjectly terrible on Senna like people say. He’s definitely worse on her, but that’s because in NA Senna tends to be one of the least-gold hungry ADCs in the game. It’s not only that Doublelift can’t play her optimally, but also that his teammates are struggling to pick up the slack on the resources that she can enable her teammates to use.
