We break down the best ADC players that you will see at Worlds 2020.

20. Berkay “Zeitnot” Aşıkuzun (Papara Supermassive) – 71 OVR

Zeitnot actually posted one of the highest adjusted KDA’s (4.26) of all the ADCs at Worlds 2020, in large part because he averaged over 4 kills per game during the regular season. He was also a dominant laner in the TCL, averaging a 15 CS and over 900g lead over the opposing bot laner at 15 minutes.

However, Zeitnot’s damage output left a lot to be desired during the season, as his 521 DPM and 27.7% damage share actually got worse in the playoffs (423 DPM and 23.4% damage share). Those numbers don’t make me feel confident that those kills he was getting were largely due to his play, but more cleaning up for his teammates.

19. Jason “WildTurtle” Tran (FlyQuest) – 73 OVR

Splitting time in the summer with backup ADC Mash, Wildturtle did manage to elevate his performance in the latter part of the season for FlyQuest. In particular, he should be well-served by his strong Senna play; he had an 80% win rate and an over 7.00 KDA on the pick in 2020.

Despite the memes, Wildturtle’s deaths per game (1.1 during the regular season and 1.8 during the playoffs) weren’t a cause for concern, giving him a very strong 4.58 aKDA. The biggest issue he has is his low damage, as he had an overall aDPM of 439.2, which is 100 lower than the average for his role.

18. Matyáš “Carzzy” Orság (MAD Lions) – 76 OVR

The MAD Lions were a dominant team during the early part of the Summer Split, but unfortunately they were hampered by some of the inconsistencies of their ADC. It’s not as though Carzzy doesn’t have picks that he can’t succeed on (Ezreal, MF, and Kalista are his three most-picked, all have win rates above 60% and KDAs above 4.00), but his success seems a lot more dependent on his teammates helping him out.

In particular, his laning stats are atrocious (-398 gold/-13 CS/-251 XP differentials at 15) despite the fact that he played with the second-best support at Worlds 2020 in Kaiser. And it’s not as though Kaiser was perpetually roaming or that his laning stats were terrible. Unfortunately, Carzzy is just the weak link in this pairing.

17. Yiliang “Doublelift” Peng (TSM) – 76 OVR

Although his return to TSM came with a lot of fanfare, and he did help restore them to the top of the LCS for the first time since he left, Doublelift wasn’t exactly the most steady performer for the team. Part of that was due to juggling multiple supports this split, but another part was having to adapt his champion pool. Consider that Ashe, his most-picked champion in 2020, is one of his worst champions, with a 42.9% win rate and a 3.18 KDA.

While he has gotten significantly better at Senna and Aphelios, he is still an incredibly resource-heavy ADC (438.4 aGPM) compared to other ADCs with a below-average damage output (507.3 aDPM). Yes, that’s also due to his champion picks, but when you’re getting more resources than your teammates and not turning that into a positive it hurts your team’s efficiency.

16. Kim “Deft” Hyuk-kyu (DRX) – 76 OVR

Deft also has a champion pool issue, but one that is very dissimilar to Doublelift’s. His two most-picked and best champions – Varus and Aphelios – have completely fallen out of the meta ahead of Worlds 2020. While he can play Aphelios and his third most-picked champion – Ezreal – is quite strong, he’s a completely different player when he’s not on those two picks.

On top of that, Deft has one of the lowest kill participations (67%) for his role. Luckily, his damage numbers (556.2 aDPM) are quite good, so he’s not avoiding fights, but you’d still like to see your ADC getting more involved in your team’s play, especially when he’s a player as storied as Deft.
