The NA LCS nears the halfway point of the spring split this week with Week 5, and Week 4 included plenty of interesting performances. Here are three interesting stats from the most recent week of play, as brought to fans by Riot Games' weekly infographic.
3. Snarker Returns To Professional Play
Snarker returned to the NA LCS after not seeing professional play since Week 6 of the 2014 summer split. Christian "IWillDominate" Rivera was the player to play Snarker back then.
Snarker was picked four times in Week 4 and came away with a 3-1 record for the week.
2. Sneaky Defeats All Active Former Teammates
Zachary "Sneaky" Scuderi completed Week 4 of the NA LCS with wins against Team Liquid and FlyQuest. He has now defeated five of his former teammates in the first four weeks of the NA LCS.
The list includes Hai "Hai" Du Lam, Juan "Contractz" Arturo Garcia, William "Meteos" Hartman, Jung "Impact" Eon-yeong and Daerek "LemonNation" Hart
He may still care for his old teammates, but he certainly isn't taking it easy on any of them.
1. Gnar Highest Picked Champion This Split
As of Week 4, Gnar is the highest picked champion in the NA LCS. With Zoe being the most banned and Gangplank being the most banned among top laners, Gnar is slipping in as a must-pick top lane champion.
Gnar's ability to engage with the use of Mega Gnar is a significant reason for his popularity. An upcoming nerf to Mega Gnar in Patch 8.4 might change that quickly, though.
