Academy All Stars: 2020 Spring

I’ve been watching Academy closely all split, and highlighting the standout performers each week. Now that the regular season has wrapped, it’s time to assess the entire nine weeks of work and honour the best player at each position.

NOTE: I’m unable to report full-split stats for these players due to ongoing issues with Riot’s match history service, but you can see the stats for weeks 1 through 8 here.

Scroll to the end for the TL;DR of 1st-team and 2nd-team selections.

TOP: Lourlo, Dignitas

5 Academy Standouts Appearances

Lourlo has been a consistent performer, often working in the shadows of his carries but doing everything his team needed him to do. Continue reading Academy All Stars: 2020 Spring

Academy Standouts: 2020 Spring Week 8

Academy Standouts highlights the players who performed best in the most recent week of NA Academy play. I’ll discuss three of the most noteworthy players, either the best performers or new standouts who haven’t shown up on the list before, and then list 7 other strong performers below.

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.

Ablazeolive, Mid, Golden Guardians

Ablazeolive is back for his third Standouts feature slot in four weeks, and this time his team had the results to show for it, taking down CLG Academy and then pulling an upset on DIG Academy. With powerful control play, Ablazeolive has been making a very strong case for himself as one the best Mids in Academy this year.
