C9 Fudge Voted Most Improved LCS Player!
Cloud9’s Ibrahim “Fudge” Allami has been proclaimed as the FTX Most Improved LCS Player — to no one’s surprise whatsoever! This exceptional young player went from being a promising (albeit flawed) OCE talent to a bona fide top lane titan, and watching him grow and develop under C9’s banner has been nothing short of mesmerizing!
He’s not without fault, of course, but we’d be remiss if we didn’t say that Fudge was often the most consistent (and dominant) player on Cloud9 throughout the Summer Split and was the difference-maker on more than one occasion.
He went from being a hugely flawed player back in the LCS Lock-In tournament to winning Spring, shining bright at this year’s MSI, and then reaching the 1st LCS All Pro team — talk about a spectacular trajectory! He did, of course, have equally spectacular teammates by his side, but as time went on Fudge was able to carve out a place for himself and, eventually, stand his own ground against the LCS crème de la crème.
The Stats Don’t Lie
The numbers Fudge has been able to accrue by the end of the 2021 LCS Summer Split are quite commendable (to put it mildly). He has the highest KDA amongst his top lane peers (5.5), the lowest Death Share (a measly 15.6%), and is the leader in First Blood (33%). The rest of his stats aren’t exactly mind-blowing (especially those pertaining to the laning phase) but you’d be wrong to take them at face value — they don’t paint the whole picture.
Fudge has clutched things out for C9 many a times and has played an invaluable part in keeping them afloat during some very turbulent moments throughout the split. Without his consistent (not to mention dominant) performances, they probably wouldn’t have been able to lock down a spot in the Top 4.
If you want to see Fudge in action, make sure to tune in this Friday as Cloud9 is scheduled to face Evil Geniuses in the lower half of the playoffs bracket! It goes without saying, but there’s quite a lot on the line and fireworks are all but guaranteed!
