Dominance of AD Carrys, but with surprises
It’s evident that AD Carrys tend to have a high kill count at Worlds. However, we’ve also seen surprises with players from other positions, such as midlaners and junglers, who manage to stand out. ShowMaker and Canyon are clear examples that it’s not only AD Carrys who can take the title of top killer at Worlds.
What to Expect? League of Legends esports

One thing is sure; the tournament will bring emotions, strategies, and undoubtedly, many kills to count.
