After Day 8 of the best 16 teams competing, the Worlds 2022 group stage is over and things are heating up in the Pick’Ems battle.
The group stage featured several upset, differnt champions as well as drakes on the map. With all this, there is still no way to predict how Pick’Ems and Crystal Ball will end.
The Crystal Ball is the new category that started during Play-Ins with several questions for fans to get separate points and rewards.
Most picked: Aatrox/Maokai(38)
Aatrox and Maokai are still fighting neck to neck for the most picked champion of Worlds. Since Aatrox is usually only played in top lane, Maokai has an edge because he can always be a flex pick.
Most banned: Caitlyn (60)
Caitlyn remains the most banned champion at Worlds 2022 with 60 bans so far. Aatrox is close behind at 48, with Yuumi coming in third with 46. No other champion is particularly close.
Most deaths: Leona(104)
Leona retains her position as the champion with the most deaths with 104 deaths (and probably more to come).
Highest Winrate: Sivir(90%)
Sivir has the highest winrate so far at Worlds 2022, with a 9-1 record across 10 games. She is closely followed by Yuumi who has a 81.8% win rate in 11 games played.
Most roles played: Maokai (3)
Maokai still holds the title for most roles played at Worlds.
The champion has been played in three roles so far and has now become a flex pick for versatile teams.
Highest KDA: TBD (T1 Gumayusi)
It is unclear if Fnatic’s Rúben “Rhuckz” Barbosa will count with him only playing two games. If he does, he is the KDA leader with 22. But for now, T1’s Lee “Gumayusi” Min-hyeong leads the active payers with a 18.3 KDA.
Most played champions: Vulcan (11)
Evil Geniuses’ support player Philippe “Vulcan” Laflamme is the current leader in unique champions played with 11. However, his tournament is over and he can no longer add to his lead.
The next closest player still in contention is Royal Never Give Up’s support player Shi “Ming” Senming with eight.
Most kills in game: Shogun (16)
There has not been a player that has matched Nguyễn “Shogun” Văn Huy’s 16-kill performance in the play-in stage so far at Worlds 2022.
First Blood: GALA (5)
RNG’s bot laner Chen “GALA” Wei already has five first-bloods at Worlds 2022 and has a two-kill lead over the rest of the field.
Most played champions (Team): EG (43)
EG exit Worlds 2022 as the current leader in most unique champions played with 43. Worlds 2022 set a new record for unique champions pick with over 100 champions picked or banned.
Total pentakills: 2
The first half of the Worlds 2022 group stage ended with no pentakills.
The two pentakills came into play during the play-in stage.
Most killed Drake: Hextech (81)
Hextech continues to lead in the Drake deaths category with 81. Mountain is second with 80.
Baron Steals: 6
There have been six Baron steals at Worlds 2022.
Longest game duration: 44:48
The longest game duration is still 44:48 through Day 6 of the group stage.
