This is part three of a three-part series chronicling the rise of superstar mid laner S?ren Bjergsen Bjerg in professional League of Legends. Part one is here. Part two is here.Theres a story for each of Bjergsens three years (and counting) with Team SoloMid. 2014 was the launching point. It was the first time his skill was put on display for the North American audience. He dazzled, and the fans swarmed. The ending was perfect: a triumph over mid lane rival Hai Hai Lam and Cloud9 to win the North American League of Legends Championship Series title.What todays fan might not necessarily see in that fairy tale is the complex and challenging set of circumstances that Bjergsen had to thrive in.My first impression of Bjergsen in Spring 2014 when he came to the North American LCS was that he was a bit over-hyped in his skill level, but I later learned that his potential had been understated, says NA LCS caster Aidan Zirene Moon. In a world where [Lee Faker Sang-hyeok] had just taken the world by storm, most mid laners looked weak in comparison to the greatest League player the world had ever seen, but you could immediately tell that there was unharnessed greatness within Bjergsen. His introduction into the LCS was one of the most daunting challenges a player could have: he was in a foreign country, replacing the most vocal member of the most popular team that was struggling to find domestic success [against] a record-breaking Cloud9.In 2015, the rise and fall. The teams overdependence on Bjergsen through the spring into the summer finally culminated in the fall of the TSM empire with only Bjergsen left to clean up the rubble.And now we come to the conclusion: 2016, the rebuilding. TSM wanted to reclaim everything it had lost to rival Counter Logic Gaming that one Sunday night in New York City where everything that could have gone wrong went wrong. In Oct 2015, Bjergsens squad swooped in to sign one of the players who had beaten them at Madison Square Garden, Yiliang Doublelift Peng, a superstar AD carry who apparently didnt fit into CLGs future plans after an unsatisfactory trip to Worlds.The team was then built around the two offensive dynamos. Dennis Svenskeren Johnsen, Bjergsens old Copenhagen Wolves teammate from the beginning of his career in EU, joined the roster. Kevin Hauntzer Yarnell, an upstart top laner with a year of pro experience on Gravity, signed as the new starter. At the support role, after trying out Raymond kaSing Tsang, a relative newcomer, in a preseason tournament, the team decided to go with an all-time great in Bora YellOwStaR Kim. Where Bjergsen and Doublelift had failed at the 2015 World Championships, YellOwStaR triumphed, captaining the European side Fnatic all the way to the semifinals.I thought TSM completely rebuilding around Bjergsen after the 2015 year was a fantastic idea, Zirene says. In theory, it was great: a self sufficient top laner that picked up champions quickly and played what the team needed, an aggressive Lee Sin-loving jungler that was more than just another ward for Bjergsen, a consistent second threat in the form of an ADC who plays to dominate his lane, and a support who was just coming off a Worlds semifinals appearance and was touted as one of the greatest shotcallers in the West.For the coaching staff, TSM decided to appoint esports outsider KC Woods as head coach and Joshua Jarge Smith as the assistant coach. It also enlisted the help of Weldon Green, a sports psychology skills trainer, for a period of time in the middle of the season.I have worked with and played with some of the biggest stars in the NBA and MLB, and I had still never seen a player with such drive and passion to learn, says Woods. In traditional sports you hear about some of the greats like Jerry Rice, Tom Brady, Michael Jordan, or Kobe Bryant who were known to be on a different level when it came to their work ethic. Being great was never enough, they were never satisfied. That was what I saw in Bjergsen. He took in every perspective he could that could make him better, he didnt want to waste time doing something that wasnt making better, and he was willing to sacrifice everything to win. He embodied greatness and what it means to be a champion.Yet, for how good the lineup looked on paper, it failed to deliver on stage. TSM didnt sprint out of the gates, and Woods was relieved of his duties only a month into the season. It was an inverse of the problem which plagued them the previous year.[The roster] in practice was just too many voices and not enough focus, says Zirene. The spring split regular season was awful for TSM. Doublelift and Bjergsen had both been groomed into shotcalling and dictating the pace of the game, but that style conflicted with YellOwStaRs patient style that then caused dissonance in the teams style. You could see that the team had the individual skill, but the half-followed calls were damning in a game that was becoming more and more about teamwork and synergy/alignment in your ranks.The issue was trust. The starting five, for all their individual prowess, were a fractured whole. Bjergsen had to learn how to let others take the wheel. Doublelift had to learn to play with a support who didnt fit his style. Hauntzer was thrust from a team, Gravity, that attracted no public attention to a team where his every mistake was discussed on reddit. Svenskeren had been an attacking-style ace himself in Europe and needed to learn how to play behind Bjergsen and Doublelift.When spring playoffs rolled around, the team was more aligned on how they wanted to play the game, says Zirene. Weldon had been brought on to work with TSM and create a more cohesive team that became closer in ideology on how they wanted to play the game. I dont fully credit Weldon with TSMs sixth place regular split finish all the way to the finals in Las Vegas, but it is undeniable that he had a large effect on the teams ability to play together.TSM found its footing late in the season and made another miraculous run to the finals, echoing the 2014 summer postseason. In Las Vegas this time around, the matchup was the same: Counter Logic Gaming vs. Team SoloMid. CLG had players who trusted each other and a Doublelift replacement, rookie Trevor Stixxay Hayes, who wanted to prove his worth. TSM was a talented group of players learning what it meant to be a team under great expectations. In the end, although the contest was closer than last season, CLG would take home the trophy again for the second straight split in a five-game marathon.Svenskeren, though, believed TSM had the ability to beat anyone, even when not playing at their absolute peak.Why?We got Bjergsen, so we can [win], he said.The trust was building. The summer split would see the emergence of a truly new and improved TSM.In the summer split the team was readjusted to a new mindset, and came out of the gate fully on the same page of how they wanted to play their matches: by dominating the lane, Zirene says. With the bottom lane being rebuilt around Doublelift and his playstyle, the teams strengths on paper that got all of the fans excited about a TSM Super Team were now unlocked. Doublelift was now the lane-dominant secondary threat TSM needed, and Svenskerens focus was much more in-sync with Bjergsens needs as a laner and freed him up to once again return to the form he was known for: smashing his lane opponent, and eventually [taking] the game.YellOwStaR had departed in the short offseason and rookie Vincent Biofrost Wang took his place following speculation about the support role. A veteran behind the fresh face, Biofrost stabilized the bottom lane with Doublelift, and the pairs comparable styles meshed well together.In the middle of it all, Bjergsen played possibly the best season of his entire career. Stats-wise, he finished the regular summer split with 166 kills, 62 deaths, and 275 assists for a KDA of 7.1. Only Cloud9s mid laner Nicolaj Jensen Jensen had more kills, but Bjergsen died less and assisted more.He wasnt a one man show like the last summer split, but he didnt need to be. By just being Bjergsen, the best player in North America, he opened up the map for his teammates to succeed at their roles. And unlike before, he trusted them wholeheartedly, confident that Hauntzer could make a play in the top lane and/or Doublelift in the bottom. Teams piled resources into defeating Bjergsen as they did when TSM fell in 2015, but Bjergsen was no longer alone: he had teammates who could stand with him. Doublelift took up a majority of the burden when it came to shotcalling, allowing Bjergsen to avoid being bogged down from constantly making every call on the map.Not five individuals, or two superstars. A team.[Bjergsen] is very much about playing everything the right way or the most efficient way, says Jarge, who left the team in the spring split. Woods and Jarge would be replaced by Weldon Green and Parth Naidu, respectively. He can at some times be very easy to predict, but only in that you can predict that he will often make the right choice and execute it near flawlessly.Jarge adds, Doublelift, for me, is the opposite. While Doublelift definitely understands the fundamentals of LoL, he also sees the thought processes and flaws of other teams and is able to think of very creative ways to find an advantage, even if someone had not made that particular move before.A burning question from the start of the rebuild was if Bjergsen and Doublelift could coexist. These were two players considered the top of their position in the league, but they also both finished 2015 with no team around them, as Bjergsen was left behind and Doublelift ousted. Instead of a war of egos or fighting over who the true ace was, the two combined, forming a partnership and friendship that took each other to the next level of their careers.While the two of them are great players separately, together they make, in my opinion, the most dangerous combination in Western League history, Jarge says. Both are among the elite both in terms of mechanical skill in their roles, but also at strategic understanding and execution. The combination of Bjergsens analytical prowess and Doublelifts creative thinking allows them to not only execute on textbook plays, but also adapt and evolve faster than any others.TSM couldnt, and wouldnt, be stopped in its quest to regain the championship. It only dropped one series in the entire summer split and it ripped through CLG in the semifinals in three games, avenging the last two finals where they fell short.It was onward to the final where C9 awaited for the fifth time in the two teams histories.There, in front of a sold-out crowd of 15,000 people, a majority of them wearing the black and white of Team SoloMid, Bjergsen did not have to lift anyone or anything on his back. The only thing around his shoulders was the arms of his teammates, walking together as one towards the NA LCS trophy. The rebuild was complete: a tough 3-1 victory over Cloud9, and a fourth domestic title for TSM.Bjergsen has done what most European midlaners fail to do: become a team player and leader while maintaining your mechanical level, says shoutcaster and former teammate Martin Deficio Lynge, the man who has seen him grow from his first tournament in Sweden to now. Bjergsens mechanics are not head-and-shoulders above other talented EU mid laners through time, but his understanding of the game and how to play with his team is fantastic. He is much more aware of when to roam, how to set up plays with his jungler and how to impact multiple areas of the map at once. He never seems to tilt and he has the experience and confidence now to always perform in important matches.At the post-match press conference, Bjergsen sat with his teammates, smiling, looking over at the various media groups from across the world to interview him and his team. Gone was the stuttering and apprehension. He was comfortable, elated with his teammates to accomplish a small but significant step towards the ultimate goal of the Summoners Cup.I think every team scrims between six and nine hours probably like five or six days a week, Bjergsen said. The difference between the top teams and the middle pack teams is what you do outside of that time. We scrim on LCS days. We wake up and watch [game tape] in the morning before scrims. So, in League, the hard work is you can always work harder. You can always have more conversations with your team, theorycraft, watch more [game tape]. You can even schedule more scrims.The young Dane continued: I just think that I havent personally found a way I can improve without spending more and more time. I think it all came from [South] Korea where they practice 15 hours a day, and our team [said], Well, if we want to beat the Koreans, we need to practice just as much. So we just practice to the point of burnout [...] and try to pull it back afterwards. Its all about trying to optimize those hours.Bjergsen is a prodigy, but it would be unfair to confine him to that label. When I talked to everyone associated with Bjergsen over the years, yes, his natural talent was brought up, but that wasnt the part of his character that stayed with people.I mean other than the fact that he works harder than everyone else, says his former teammate Marcus Dyrus Hill when asked about Bjergsen. Not much else to say.He deserves what he has.Above all else, he is a hard worker. Bjergsen will push himself to the brink for his team, and even when it was damaging, accept the weight of every TSM fans dreams. When Bjergsen falls, he gets right up, putting his nose to the grindstone to work even harder for the next event. Win or lose, there is always something to improve upon.He doesnt accept being called the best Western player in the world. He wants to be the best player in the world on a team that can beat the South Koreans, Chinese, Europeans and anyone else who challenges TSM for the Summoners Cup. He doesnt accept being above average or even greatness. If Faker stands above him, two world championships in tow, and seemingly a heavens distance between them, Bjergsen doesnt aim to reach him -- he aims to surpass him.I have never been as happy as I am right now in life, and I want to thank everyone Ive met and that has been in my life the past year, Bjergsen said on that public Facebook post almost three years ago, a few months after signing with TSM. I especially want to thank Deficio... If it wasnt for him I wouldnt be here today, he opened himself up to me, and I strived to become confident like he was. I wish him all the best luck in the future.Today, Deficio responds:I want to thank Bjergsen for being an inspiration for any person out there who struggle with confidence, friendship and [fitting] in socially their teenage years. He is one of the nicest and most hard working people in the scene, and he earned all of this himself.PS: Danish dinner party at Worlds is on you. Nike Air Force 1 Mens .

The Impact starters lined the BMO Field sideline, as if they couldnt wait to get back on the pitch. Instead they contented themselves with a few drills while halftime contestants dressed as submarine sandwiches waddled off the pitch. As the Toronto players trotted out from the tunnel, the Eastern Conference-leading Impact were sprinting into position. And the Montreal fightback officially began. Hassoun Camara and Marco Di Vaio scored one minute apart in the second half to lift the Impact to a 3-3 draw with Toronto in MLS play before a sellout crowd of 21,700 Wednesday night. "Obviously I wasnt happy at halftime," said acting Montreal coach Mauro Biello. "We were very timid ... They were winning second balls and being more aggressive than we were. And I said We could get one back and were going to be back in the game. "Credit to the guys. They came back out, they came strong. We were able to get that second goal and we saw the momentum turning. And we were able to get the third." Camara pulled Montreal (9-4-3) to within one after defenders Steven Caldwell and Ryan Richter failed to deal with a high ball. Camara pounced on it and banged it in past Joe Bendik in the 69th minute. Di Vaio, with his 11th goal of the season, tied it up a minute later after a Richter clearing pass ended up on Felipes boot. The Brazilian midfielder slipped the ball into Di Vaio who made no mistake from in close. "Theres still a lot of things we need to work on," said Biello, filling in for the suspended Marco Schallibaum. That includes shoring up a defence that has given up seven goals in the last two games. Star defenders Alessandro Nesta and Matteo Ferrari were on the back foot for most of the night, with little help from the midfield. The Impact should be happy they lead the league in offence with 30 goals in 16 games. Because they need those goals, having given up 24 at the other end. "Theres obviously a little bit of concern, theres no doubt," said Biello. "Normally youre not going to win games (giving up) three goals on the road. Its obviously a concern and it needs to be fixed. Were working hard every day. Were watching video on what we could do better. Everything is a learning progress. For us, were happy we took the points but yes, definitely we need to do a better job defensively." While Biello took solace from his teams character in rallying for the tie, Toronto coach Ryan Nelsen was left to ponder a great opening hour that went south quickly. "They punished naive mistakes by us," Nelsen said of Montreal. "But I have to look at it as a (glass) half-full game for 60, 70 minutes. Am I happy? No. No ones happy, of course, when you play that well for 70 minutes and give it up. "But in saying that, Montreals a very good team. Theyve done that to a lot of teams this season. They get a chance and they take it." Up until the 69th minute, Toronto (2-8-7) seemed to be in cruise control after Jeremy Brockie, Caldwell and Darren ODea opened their MLS scoring accounts in the first half. Toronto seemed en route to posting its first league win at BMO Field in almost a year. "We had them on their knees and we should have finished them off," said ODea. But the home side deflated quickly after Montreal -- which stands 17 points ahead of Toronto in the standings -- struck back in the second half. Suddenly the visitors seemed faster, with fresher legs. "Its tough to take but its sometimes a little bit easier to take when you know youve played well," said ODea. "And weve let a lot of teams off the hook. But sllowly and surely it will come.dddddddddddd" Brockie had a chance to give Toronto the win in the 89th minute but his long-range shot hit the post and deflected wide. And Montreal came close in stoppage time when a Caldwell header back to the keeper almost found an Impact attacker. While praising Montreal, Nelsen slyly got in a few digs. He said he liked his young talent, because it would be around longer than the veteran Impact. And he accurately surmised that the Impact go down at the touch of a feather. Toronto could well have been awarded a first-half penalty when Nesta tugged Luis Silvas arm like he was ringing a bell as the TFC forward raced into the box. "Probably the kids too honest," said ODea. "I could guarantee 100 per cent that they would have fallen down, as you saw every time they got touched today." Toronto has been anything but an offensive juggernaut this season. But it profited from an opportunistic attack, some good running off the ball and poor Montreal defending to take its 3-1 lead. The Impact seemed to be moving backwards for much of the game. Toronto flank players were often seen waving their hands frantically for the ball as the Montreal defence left huge gaps. Nelsens team had scored just 14 goals in the previous 16 games. But as the first half came to a close, Toronto was up 3-1 and stroking the ball the field around with considerable flair. Torontos last league victory at its lakefront home was July 18, 2012 -- a 2-1 victory over the Colorado Rapids. The team did defeat Sporting Kansas City in Toronto in the second game of this season but that was at Rogers Centre. Some fans may have missed the four goals in the first 24 minutes due to major local traffic issues resulting from a major accident nearby Montreal scored 23 seconds in after left back ODea failed to deal with a looping ball from Brazilian midfielder Felipe. Argentinas Andres Romero then beat an onrushing Bendik and calmly slotted the ball past centre back Gale Agbossoumonde. "Pretty horrendous," was Nelsens assessment of ODeas defending on the play although he also said the mistake was characteristic of the Toronto skipper. Canadian Dwayne De Rosario holds the league record for fastest goal, after just 11 seconds, for San Jose against Dallas in 2003. Toronto replied in the sixth minute when Bobby Convey found Brockie in the box, perhaps fortuitously with what looked to be a scuffed shot. Brockie deftly moved the ball from his right foot to his left and roofed a shot past Troy Perkins for his first MLS goal. Brockie set up the next goal, firing in a 21st-minute cross that an unmarked Caldwell headed in. ODea earned some personal vindication three minutes later, working a nice one-two with Silva before banging a left-footed shot in. Toronto outshot Montreal 18-16 (7-5 in shots on target). The home side also pushed the visitors around for much of the game, earning three of the four yellow cards on the night. The game marked the midway point of Torontos season. TFC was 2-11-4 at the same point last year, having started the 2012 season with a league-record nine-game losing streak. With four players on international duty with the Canadian squad and Robert Earnshaw and Richard Eckersley injured, Nelsen was short of options on the bench. He had to dress striker Andrew Wiedeman, despite having an MCL injury. "Were down to bare bones," Nelsen said. Reinforcements are on the way, the coach promised, with forward one area where Toronto is looking for a new recruit. Toronto has brought in 20 new faces since the end of last season. But some have been stopgap measures. Quality is still lacking. "Were a few players way from being a very very very good team," said Nelsen.
