K1ng, Bot, Cloud9

K1ng is making a charge for Academy MVP, putting up nearly a thousand damage per minute in week 8 while topping +1k GXD10. Playing poke champions like Ezreal and Varus helps boost the damage number, but the great lane outcomes and KDA show that K1ng didn’t just pad his stats; he earned it.
