Alongside the career milestone, gained thanks to his two kills in the fight, it was Bjerg’s engage that proved to be the deciding factor in the play as he trapped four players in the Baron Pit allowing his team to help finish them and the Baron off. The play would help TSM secure the victory, in a series the team would later win 2-1.
This is a huge milestone for Bjerg who is the most popular star in the North American LCS. Joining Team SoloMid in the Spring Split of 2014 after a promising 2013 debut in EU, Bjerg quickly set himself apart from the other North American mid laners thanks to the consistency of his play, his ability to win lane and the shear variety of champions he is able to play at a competitive level.
