I obtained all my data from Oracle's elixir, and only included 18 game splits for consistency. I did include tiebreaker games in these numbers but removing them wouldn't have effected final standings at all. Support players were counted to be eligible for the most deaths "award" but not for fewest kills, after all you reach a point where a support having too many kills could be considered a bad thing. There has never been in a non-support player with the fewest kills. In most splits, the top or jungle player with the fewest kills still has more kills than nearly all supports that split.

Some interesting factoids from this

  • Svenskeren and Niles share as the only players to have the fewest kills and most deaths in the same split.
  • Flaresz who holds the record with 90 deaths is the only player even in the ballpark of of Niles, with no other players passing 75 deaths in 18 games.
  • There are quite a lot of players with very good splits in the fewest kill category, Xmithie even has some All-Pro splits included.
  • Contracz and Xmithie with multiple appearances on the list.
  • Niles is the only non-support to average under 1 kill per game.

I don't think Niles is the worst player to ever play in the LCS. There are multiple other players with worst stats under a smaller sample size. What makes Niles so unique is that he was never benched and also never really improved either. You will quite often see players with very few kills start to play more aggressive near the end of the split, or vice versa for few deaths. Niles didn't really change much. I don't think bringing in Solo or another top laner would have saved GGS's split or Niles's career, but they certainly could have saved his dignity.
