Worlds stats galore

No double-digit KDAs, omnipresent Aatrox: Worlds 2022 by the numbers




Worlds 2022 has come to an end, with DRX defeating T1 in a five-game thriller. Jaxon is here to break down Worlds 2022’s biggest stats, from KDA to champion presence to the records no one wants.

Note before getting to the numbers – these figures represent the main stage of Worlds 2022. For the stats from the Play-In stage, Jaxon has articles about that stage’s champion picks and KDA standings.

Knight leads KDA standings

With the playoffs proving especially bloody, no player finished with a KDA in the double digits. Top Esports mid laner Zhuo knight Ding finished the tournament’s highest KDA at 8.4. However, this stat in isolation is misleading, as knight played one-third of the games players like T1’s Lee Gumayusi Min-hyeong did.

The complete top 10 of Worlds 2022 KDA were:

  • 1: Knight (Top Esports) 8.4
  • T2: Gumayusi (T1) 7.6
  • T2: Keria (T1) 7.6
  • 4: Ruler (Gen.G) 6.8
  • 5: Larssen (Rogue) 6.2
  • 6: ShowMaker (DWG KIA) 6.1
  • 7: GALA (RNG) 5.8
  • T8: Chovy (Gen.G) 5.5
  • T8: Pyosik (DRX) 5.5
  • 10: Mark (Top Esports) 5.3

Fnatic’s Rúben “rhuckz” Barbosa is not included on this list as his perfect KDA of 22 occurred over only two matches.

Aatrox maintains perfect presence rate

Worlds 2022 set the record for the most champions picked or banned at a single tournament. However, only Aatrox held a perfect presence rate throughout the main stage of the tournament. Yuumi was close behind at 95%, which led to much discontent in the League community.

  • 1: Aatrox (100%)
  • 2: Yuumi (95%)

Worlds 2022 stat oddities

T1’s Gumayusi becomes the first player in Worlds history to record multiple quadra kills, triple kills, and double kills without recording a penta kill. During Worlds 2022, the ADC scored 2 quadras, 3 triples, and 12 doubles.

Worlds 2022 also took the record for the shortest average game time in tournament history at 31 minutes and 40 seconds.
