Froggen takes world record for most minions farmed in a professional League game
In a 67-minute showdown between two of North America’s top League of Legends squads a new record for the highest creep score (CS) in a competitive game was set today.
Echo Fox mid laner Henrik “Froggen” Hansen broke the previous record for most minions farmed in their game against Team Dignitas, scoring 764 CS on Gangplank throughout the match. This broke the record set by former CJ Entus mid laner Shin "CoCo" Jin-yeong last year, when he achieved 726 CS on Jayce versus Jin Air Green Wings.
Fox’s AD carry Yuri “KEITH” Jew came close to taking out the record himself, with a 738 CS score during today’s game.
While Hansen’s record is monumental, overall the game saw sloppy play from both teams. Team Dignitas amounted a large gold advantage, while simultaneously achieving four Barons and the fifth Dragon buff three times in a row. But after a disjointed teamfight near an Echo Fox inhibitor, Fox jungler Anthony “Hard” Barkhovtsev, Jew, and support Terry “BIG” Choung backdoored the Dignitas base to end the game.
After the game Hansen was interviewed by Riot Games caster and host Rivington Bisland III. Hansen jokingly told Bisland III that he didn’t want to fight, but instead wanted to achieve 1000 CS before the end of the game. Unfortunately for Hansen it was not to be.
But he will go home with a new record, and Echo Fox with a much-needed win to avoid the promotion tournament and keeping their playoff hopes alive.
