Cloud9 had a lot of changes in store for their League of Legends Roster heading into the 2022 LCS Summer Split. Not only was Nicolaj “Jensen” Jensen coming back after time away from the LCS, but Jesper “Zven” Svenningsen also returned to the main roster, just not in his former ADC role. The ADC that led C9 to great success for years was shifting to the support role, one he had never before played professionally.
Though he had a few familiar teammates at his side, immediately next to him was Kim “Berserker” Min-cheol, an ADC with whom he had not played with on the main LCS stage as of yet.
But in the three games that C9’s bot lane duo has played thus far, they haven’t lost. Zven’s presence in this new role was immediately felt by his opponents, leading to a powerful bot lane combination that has taken down the likes of 100 Thieves and CLG. While he’s started strong as a support, Zven told Dot Esports that he’s still attempting to adjust to the role, and is still learning proper mechanics.
“I think I still make a lot of mistakes that, looking back at them, are almost rookie mistakes,” Zven said. “There is a learning curve that you simply cannot learn fast enough in [the support] role. The role is a lot more about brain, experience, and decision-making than it is about raw mechanics and laning phase.”
