He came. He saw. He conquered. Our Support player, Glenn “Hybrid” Doornenbal, was without a doubt one of the breakthrough stars of this EU LCS Split. which was his very first season in the highest tier of League of Legends. Even with the synergy between jungler Kang-yun “Trick” Kim and mid laner Luka “PerkZ” Perković being touted as one of the reasons behind the team’s success, Hybrid often stole the show, and he finished the season with a KDA of 7.92 – the highest in the entire league.
Not only did the Dutchman show incredible confidence in his abilities throughout the Split but he also established himself as one of the best Braum players in Europe – if not the best. Over time, other teams started focusing him on the pick-and-ban phase, as evidenced by the constant bans on his two signature champions, Braum and Thresh. Still, he demonstrated that he still had one or two more tricks up his sleeve and finished the season with great performances on other champions, like Bard and Trundle.
And as we are about to head into the playoffs, there is still a lot more to come from the young Dutchman, who, this time last year, was still trying to come through the ranks in Copenhagen Wolves’ academy team.
“I am pretty happy with my performances in the LCS so far,” he said. “I think I have been very consistent in my play, and I cannot wait for the playoffs. Playing my first LCS split has been fun, and it has been going really well so far. We just have to keep performing in every single game and be as consistent as we can.“
In Europe, like in North America, it is a Support player – a role many times overlooked by fans – to top the KDA charts. Questioned about his stats, Hybrid said: “I think the reason why my KDA is so high is because I am consistent in what I do and I just try to play as perfectly as I can.“
