After the end of the Regular Season, the discussion about who was the best player of the Spring Split comes up. We will statistically select three players per position. From that point, the conclusion is all yours to make. So, who’s your MVP?
Don’t forget to check out our player stat section
where you can review the stats of the three top laners we are analyzing next and all the players competing in the TrackLoL-supported Leagues.
And now, let’s get straight to the point. Who were the statistically-best three top laners of the Split?
: Coming in from Schalke 04
, the Romanian has shined during this Split despite having a really low jungle proximity. He has won the lane even though he has always played on the weak side. He excels above the average in KDA, Damage, and lane domination
(CS and Gold difference at minute 15 and at the end of the game):
: He’s been more creative into the drafts than his fellow top-laners (props to GrabbZ as well for that). We’ve seen Wunder on Irelia, Ivern, Quinn, Kled, Karma, and Dr. Mundo and yet he’s been way above the average especially in Damage stats
: It was a close call between him, Bwipo, and Broken Blade, but Armut is just a bit ahead in the stats analyzed. We had already warned about the Turkish player’s potential in our previous article about the LEC Rookies
. There are only three times when he's been used as a mere tank (Ornn and Sion twice). Apart from that, he’s shined especially with Gnar, Gragas, Jayce, or Aatrox.
Promising start for the rookie, standing above average in most of the stats:
Check out the comparison between the three of them. Odoamne is way ahead in KDA over any other top laner. Wunder is the only one close to Bwipo in Damage/minute and both Odoamne and Wunder are the most dominant in lane according to their CS and Gold difference at minute 15 and end of the game.
So after the analysis, who do you take as Best Top Laner of Spring 2021?
He is clearly over the average in KDA, Damage and CS and Gold difference compared to opposite junglers:
: One of the keys to Rogue’s
success, makes his teammates’ lives way easier. Smart, great decision-making and flexibility because he can either play the role of a carry (Graves, Nidalee,…) or picks more useful for his team (Lillia, Jarvan IV,…) to let them take the leading role.
He’s steadily one of the best junglers of the League in every Split and this one was not an exception:
He sometimes has been caught in the mid game as well as his team, and that’s something that MAD Lions
have to improve, but his polar chart is one of the most impressive
you can see:
Let’s take a look at the comparison between the three junglers. The stats are pretty split between them as Jankos is ahead in damage (second jungler in the League after Razork) and gold/min; Inspired leads in KDA and Elyoya in Creeps/min and Kill Participation. Compared to the opposite jungler, Elyoya tops all junglers at minute 15 and so does Jankos at the end of the game.
Now it’s your time to vote. Who would you pick as best jungler of the Regular Season?
: Allegedly, the best individual talent that Europe has
right now. He’s one of the best mid laners in the world and he has proven that being a two-time runner-up at Worlds 2018 and 2019, and MSI Champion in 2019. His eyes and G2’s
are probably already looking ahead to facing Damwon KIA
, RNG or Cloud9 but they should first win the Split in the Playoffs.
His picks are usually oriented into a strong side lane: Twisted Fate, Ryze, Ekko, etc., and his stats show how aggressive he can be as he excels the average in KDA and Damage stats:
: In a position where the two players mentioned above look way ahead of everyone else, our third pick was a tough call. Pretty inconsistent Split from the Czech, especially being caught too many times. Nevertheless, his individual talent allows him to be slightly above the average:
Take a look at the comparison between mid laners. Larssen leads in almost all in-lane stats: CS/min, Gold/min and CS and gold difference plus the KDA. Only falls behind Caps in Damage/min and in Kill Participation by a short margin:
Who was your most valuable mid laner of the Regular Season?
: It's only the first Split after leaving Fnatic
for G2, and Rekkles has performed at a really high level. He did not even need to play meta AD carries at the beginning of the Split as he looked extremely comfortable on the Jhin (picked 44.4% of the time). He looks like a perfect fit into G2
and probably is now relieved of some of the pressure that he used to have in Fnatic.
No other ADC gets close to his KDA and Damage stats:
: We have seen a more aggressive side from the Frenchman, not afraid of going for plays and sometimes being even overaggressive. Kai’Sa has been his predominant pick (44.44% of the times) and he was the main reason why Kalista was banned against Rogue after two brilliant performances with the champion.
As the stats show, he is a way-over the average marksman:
: His first Split with Fnatic and Upset has been one of the best performers on the team. In a Split where Fnatic have struggled to find their playstyle, showing much more aggression, the German was heavily affected by the Samira nerfs in patch 11.4 as he was showing better mastery with the champion than his fellow bot laners in the LEC.
His KDA at minute 15 compared to the average reflects the level of aggression shown mostly in the early game:
If we analyze the three of them combined, there’s a huge gap in KDA and Damage/min between Rekkles and the rest of ADCs. Hans sama and Upset only have better numbers in lane at minute 15 and a slight difference in Kill Participation and Damage Share in favor of Hans sama:
Now it’s your time to vote for one of them or leave in the comments below your pick:
: Without a doubt, one of the most brilliant supports in the League. He has played 10 different champions in 18 games this Split. His KDA might not look as brilliant, but he provides way more assists than the average:
: Probably the player with the biggest impact on his team
this Split. He’s been capable of solo carrying his team in some of SK wins (MAD Lions can tell). Coming back from TSM and after being replaced by Biofrost in the middle of Summer 2020 Playoffs, Treatz is back in Europe to show his full potential.
Treatz and Jezu have been one of the most fun and above average bot lanes of the LEC:
Comparing the stats of the three supports selected, we can see Kaiser leading aggressive stats: KDA and Damage/min. Mikyx’s KDA is a bit misleading because although he dies more than the other two supports, he’s the league leader in assists. On the other hand, Treatz leads the LEC in Kill Participation with an 80.71%:
Spring 2021 Regular Season MVP
After all of that data, we can conclude that there are only three players who are statistically way ahead of their competitors after the Split: Odoamne, Larssen, and Rekkles.
From this point there are many things to consider:
Odoamne is new in a team that already has two carries in Larssen and Hans sama and Inspired can also play carry champions. He always plays on the weak side and still manages to win the lane having competitors such as Wunder, Bwipo, Broken Blade, or Armut.
Larssen is ahead of the stats between mid laners even with Caps around. It’s true that probably the mid lane this split was not as competitive as the top lane, but still, his numbers are astonishing.
Rekkles is also new in his team, but we are talking about the best roster in the LEC. His positioning in team fights is brilliant, he averages exactly 1.00 death/game, lowest in the LEC, plus clearly leading the whole LEC in KDA and Damage per minute.
Taking into account all these arguments, even if it’s a close call, we will take Rekkles as our MVP of the Spring Split Regular Season
given that he’s been a huge part of taking the team to the first position of the table ahead of the Playoffs. G2 Esports will face Schalke 04 this Saturday
Now the time is yours to vote for your MVP:
Stay tuned and enjoy the Playoffs!
