League of Legends League Points Record Smashed by 14-Year Old
League of Legends’ player Ryan “General Sniper” Shoura demolished the League Points record on the NA servers on October 22nd, 2021! The 14-year old League of Legends player was recruited to Cloud9 back in November 2020 at 14 – but that was temporary. You have to be at least 15 years old to be signed to a team, but that didn’t stop General Sniper. He continued to play League of Legends, showing off why he’s one of the best solo-queue players in the entire region. Now, in 2021, he has the League of Legends record for most League Points accrued on the North American servers.
A Height Most Only Dream Of
Back in June, the League of Legends League Points record was broken by CoreJJ, support player for Team Liquid. However, in October 2021, that record was once again shattered, but by General Sniper. He hit 1,850 LP, which is now the all-time record for most League Points on an NA League of Legends server. General Sniper posted it on Twitter, with a brief apology to CoreJJ, who formerly held the record. With a win percentage of 57%, NA.OP.GG shows he’s been absolutely dominating players. His Win/Loss in Solo Ranked is 339/260, so that’s quite impressive.
It’s not like this comes out of nowhere, either. His older brother, V1per is a pro player, on the Immortals Academy crew as a top laner. General Sniper, like his brother, also mains Riven. General Sniper also made a name for himself as a part of Tyler1’s Twitch Rivals team, “T1 Toddlers.” So it’s pretty apparent that if General Sniper wants, he could make a serious name for himself on the League of Legends pro scene when he’s of the age to do so. Will Cloud9 pick him up? Perhaps a foreign team will find interest in the player. The real question will be how he works together with other pros.
It’s a huge moment for General Sniper, and congratulations to him on making such a huge name on the Ranked Solo boards. How long will he hold that record though? If his last matches are anything to go by, it could be a very long time before someone unseats the #1 player on Ranked Solo in NA. It isn’t easy to play Solo Queue in League of Legends, or at least, it feels incredibly daunting. General Sniper has taken to it nicely enough, and it will be very interesting to see where his future goes in the game – if he wishes to go pro at all. It’s impressive enough that he hit Challenger rating at 12.
He may have only been a member of Cloud 9 for about two hours, but the sky is the limit for this kid. As long as he keeps playing and has an interest in pro League of Legends, we could see the next godlike player hitting the NA pro scene in the next year or two.
