Early top lane focus pays off in win
February 26, 2018
Svenskeren scored a 0/1/10 KDA on Sejuani in Cloud9's victory against Clutch Gaming on Sunday.
During the first 10 minutes of the game, Svenskeren devoted to the top side of the Rift, helping Licorice build a nice kill and gold lead early. At that point, Svenskeren could focus his attention to the rest of C9's lanes while Licorice drew attention in the top lane. Cloud9 was able to quickly push its advantage by securing kills and knocking down objectives. Svenskeren got a little over aggressive during a push but his death did little to stop Cloud9's split push pressure. A Baron kill around the 23-minute mark followed by a 3-0 teamfight win was all C9 needed to cutting through Clutch's base and Nexus.
Assist machine in comeback win
February 11, 2018
Svenskeren tallied a 0/1/11 KDA in Cloud9's win over FlyQuest on Sunday.
While he didn't find a single kill in the win, Svenskeren still did plenty to push his team to victory on Sunday. His only death did come as part of a questionable 2-vs-3 engage from him and Licorice, but he shored up his play as the game progressed. He had a hand in all but two kills, pushing his team to victory through key engages with his Skarner.
Flawless play nets victory
February 5, 2018
Svenskeren earned a 2/0/6 KDA on Sejuani throughout C9's victory over OpTic on Saturday.
Starting things off with early pressure, Svenskeren was unphased by playing against Nunu; most junglers' bane of existence. Despite being up against someone with such heavy pressure to steal objectives, Svenskeren was able to control every objective during the game, giving up only a single tower and dragon throughout the victory. With excellent teamfighting and target focus, his macro and micro play were on point, resulting in Cloud9 taking a convincing 36-minute victory.
Great early game propels C9 to victory
February 5, 2018
Svenskeren ended Cloud9's Sunday win over Clutch Gaming 2/0/2.
On Sejuani, Svenskeren started out the game with the help of Smoothie by thwarting an invade attempt by LirA, nabbing first blood in the process. He teamed up with his support again shortly after to find a second kill, this time helping shut down Febiven's Orianna in the latter's advantageous matchup. He also had great early objective control, taking the first two Drakes of the game, and helped his team to a lead they never gave up.
Shows up to play in win
January 28, 2018
Svenskeren put Sejuani to good use with a 3/3/9 KDA in Cloud9's win over 100 Thieves on Sunday.
While Svenskeren often is a bit of an Achilles heel for Cloud9, he was everything but that in this game. From the very start, he was rotating well and making sure to give his team every advantage that he could as the dominated 100 Thieves in every aspect of this contest. If this is the kind of play that Svenskeren is going to put out week in and week out, Cloud9 has a chance to do some real damage this split.
Glacial Prison seals victory in debut
January 21, 2018
Svenskeren posted a 4/4/5 KDA on Sejuani in his debut victory for Cloud9 against Counter Logic Gaming.
Svenskeren performed well in his debut for Cloud9. The early game wasn't easy for Svenskeren as he had to deal with Reignover almost living in his top side jungle. However, any advantage that CLG had early slowly disappeared as the game reached the second half. It seemingly only took one good fight around Baron to completely turn things around for Cloud9. The killing blow however was initiated by a great Glacial Prison from Svenskeren that caught all the damage dealers. After a brief pause, C9 pushed to its first victory of the Spring split.
Joins top-tier NA team in Cloud9
November 27, 2017
As announced on Monday on Cloud9's website, Svenskeren has joined Cloud9.
First and foremost, good for Svenskeren. TSM's preferred playstyle never truly meshed with Svenskeren's, so while this is a sad split for some, it was one that fits both parties. The real head-scratcher here, though, is why Cloud9 would replace Contractz with Svenskeren, particularly after Contractz had an incredible rookie season. Don't underestimate Svenskeren, though, especially if coach Reapered can help him adapt to and excel in a new system. Cloud9 will face a steep learning curve to reclaim its spot on top of the NA LCS, but Svenskeren is the kind of player that can help them reach familiar heights.
Free Agent
No longer with TSM
November 24, 2017
Svenskeren and TSM have parted ways, according to a recent announcement on TSM's website.
Svenskeren is often criticised for his time on TSM, but it should be noted that he was still a strong domestic jungler. It's tough to say if any other team will want to take a risk and sign Svenskeren, considering his recent poor performances, but TSM is nothing if not the pressure cooker of western junglers. With two Europeans coming in, TSM needed to replace Svenskeren to field its new bottom lane, so there might be some questions as to whether Svenskeren was replaced out of a desire to upgrade or sheer necessity. Regardless, this move is one that should benefit both sides, with TSM looking to revamp for Season 8 and Svenskeren looking to return to peak performance. The post also noted that Svenskeren has already found a new home, though where remains to be seen.
Finally steps up
October 14, 2017
Svenskeren ended TSM's Saturday win over Misfits with a 4/1/14 KDA as Sejuani.
Svenskeren was able to finally have a breakout game at the World Championships in the win over Misfits. He was involved in 18 of 19 kills, finishing with the second highest kill and assist total in the game. This was a big win for TSM as they tied the head-to-head record against Misfits.
Unable to stop Hauntzer from being decimated
October 14, 2017
Svenskeren went just 0/5/0 in TSM's loss at the hands of Flash Wolves on Saturday at the 2017 World Championship.
Playing on Gragas in this contest, Svenskeren was simply unfit to really do much of anything against Flash Wolves. He tried early on to help Haunzter bounce back from the first blood death, but he simply got his top laner killed with impunity. As the game drew on, Svenskeren himself started to get dropped over and over for a game-high five deaths. This was just the rotten cherry on top of TSM's poor second week of the group stages here in China.
More struggles in the TSM jungle
October 12, 2017
Svenskeren went 0/2/7 as TSM took down Team WE on Saturday.
Svenskeren's early game on Gragas was weak once again on Saturday, as he accounted for his team's first two deaths in an otherwise quiet early game. Thankfully, he was able to redeem himself with a gorgeous Explosive Cask to split up WE in an early skirmish, allowing TSM to take Baron and control the remainder of the game.
Rocky start to the World Championship
October 12, 2017
Svenskeren ended TSM's Friday win over Flash Wolves with a KDA of 0/5/5.
Not all of Svenskeren's deaths on Gragas in this game can be attributed to him alone. After all, TSM's repeated decisions to contest Rift Herald forced Sven to stand in front of his teammates, where he was an unmissable target for the enemy Sejuani ultimate. Still, Svenskeren was caught out multiple times in the early game, and failed to accomplish much of anything in the meantime. His frontlining and Explosive Casks later on were solid, but having five out of eight TSM deaths doesn't look good.
Poor Worlds play continues
October 9, 2017
Svenskeren ended TSM's Sunday loss to Misfits with a 0/3/3 KDA as Sejuani.
Svenskeren's poor run of form at the World Championships continued Sunday as TSM dropped a match many expected them to win. Sven was involved in only three of seven TSM kills, tying Hauntzer for the third-highest assist total on the team. Svenskeren ends Week 1 with a pedestrian 0/10/15 KDA after three games.
Comes through when it counts
September 3, 2017
Svenskeren went an overall 7/9/41 KDA in TSM's 3-1 Sunday victory over Immortals.
Svenskeren's Zac in Game 2 didn't look too great, as he was bullied early and never really got off the ground. However, in TSM's three wins, in which he played Gragas, Svenskeren looked solid. He was able to pull off early ganks, and more importantly, had fantastic skill usage in fights. Not only did he know exactly when to pull the trigger with the Body Slam/Flash combo, but his Explosive Casks were placed perfectly in the majority of teamfights. This was especially key in Game 4, where TSM were behind a ton of gold, and needed perfection in their engagements to take the win. Svenskeren provided, teaming up with Biofrost on Rakan to execute fights immaculately, leading to TSM win.
Good enough in victories, but shabby in sole loss
August 29, 2017
Svenskeren posted a 2/10/38 KDA in Team SoloMid's 3-1 series victory over Team Dignitas on Sunday.
Svenskeren played Gragas in Games 1, 2 and 4, and Rek'Sai in Game 3. He won all three of his Gragas games, and his best moments were during the early game. He slowly fell off in terms of playmaking ability as the game went on, but his team was so far ahead in those games that it didn't really matter. He's typically pretty strong during the playoffs, but his entire team was firing on all cylinders down the stretch. His Rek'Sai was pretty shoddy through the loss in game 3, but Rek'Sai from behind isn't a very strong pick anyway. Either way, Svenskeren was good enough in the series, but he definitely has more room to show up, like he's done in the past.
