Cloud9’s Blaber Wins the 2021 LCS Spring Split MVP Award
Cloud9’s Rober “Blaber” Huang is the 2021 LCS Spring Split MVP! This is the second time this prodigious North American jungler has been awarded this highly coveted award, which is not only astounding in and of itself but also a true testament to his talent and overall potential.
Two MVP awards in just three splits. Let that one sink in. It boggles the mind. The rest of his team deserves a shout-out as well, but it was Blaber who delivered on a consistent basis and was Cloud9’s most important catalyst. He was the driving force behind much of their success and was always up to the task.
Team Liquid’s Lucas “Santorin” Tao Kilmer Larsen was the only jungler in North America who could trade blows with Blaber, but he wasn’t as big of a catalyst for his team. More often than not, a motivated Blaber was all it took for Cloud9 to win regardless of whom they were up against. He’s the kind of hardcarry jungler who only needs the smallest of openings to capitalize. Watching him perform has been an absolute pleasure.
A Statistical Breakdown
Statistically speaking, Blaber had a mind-blowing regular season. 5.1 KDA, 72.2% Kill Participation, 23.9% Kill Share, and 56% First Blood Rate — truly astounding numbers. That, however, is just the start: Blaber did over 400 damage per minute. The second-best jungler in that statistic did just a bit over 300. It’s fair to say that Blaber utilized the age-old “see hero, kill hero” method, and it worked wonderfully.
Calling him the best North American jungler of all time still feels somewhat premature, but if he continues performing so darn well it’ll be impossible to deny him of that oh-so-prestigious title. He’ll have yet another shot at making history at this year’s Mid-Season Invitational, so make sure to tune in!
