Cloud9 Players are the Frontrunners to Win the Honda MVP Award
The LCS Summer Split regular season is approaching its inevitable conclusion, with three teams qualified for the playoffs. Cloud9, Team Liquid and TSM are already preparing for postseason, but the remaining seven teams are all in the race for a playoff berth. Amid this intense competition, the best players are secretly hoping to win the prestigious Honda MVP Award. Cloud9 pro-gamers are among the favorites to win the trophy, as they play for the most dominant team in the league.
Blaber Hopes for back-to-back Honda MVP Awards
Cloud9 has emerged as a versatile team, capable of closing games early, while also having the ability to stage incredible comebacks. Blaber has been an instrumental player in the jungle and he deserved to win the prestigious award at the end of the spring split. With just two rounds left in the LCS Summer Split regular season he’s entitled to hope for back-to-back victories after a dominant performance for his team.
The successful jungler has strong competition this split, but the most dangerous opponents don’t play for either Team Liquid or TSM. Granted both teams have excellent players in this position, it is Golden Guardians’ Closer and Fly Quest’s Santorin that could prevent him from winning consecutive trophies. These players have the merit of sometimes single-handedly carry their teams and are instrumental for securing a playoff berth. Their numbers are not as good as Blaber’s but they don’t have the support of mighty Cloud9 team.
All Eyes on ADC and Mid Lane Players
League of Legends players were a bit surprised to have a jungler chosen for the Honda MVP Award, as they were expecting and ADC or mid-laner. At the end of the summer split, we have three extraordinary players on each of these positions, all capable of stealing the show. Cloud9 is once again in the spotlight with Nisqy as an incredible player in mid-lane and he is one of the main favorites. His closest competitors are Evil Geniuses’ Jiizuke and PowerOfEvil, Fly Quest’s superstar.
ADC players do precisely what the name indicates and try to carry their teammates throughout difficult matches. Cloud9 has a representative in the race for the trophy once again, with Zven ranking high in the preferences of online bookmakers. Evil Geniuses count on Bang to represent them at the Honda MVP Awards, while 100 Thieves hope that Cody Sun will be considered for the honor.
CoreJJ is the unsung hero of Team Liquid and the only support player that could win the Honda MVP Award this season. Doublelift was his trusted partner for many seasons, but even without the superstar ADC, CoreJJ has maintained the same high level of play. If he wins the award, support players from all over the world will be vindicated for doing so much for their teams while receiving so little in return.
