This past weekend, the final match of the NA LCS were played, and with Team SoloMid winning their fifth title at this tournament, there was only one unknown issue left to be resolved, and that issue was who will be the MVP of the tournament. A couple of days ago we wrote about the players who have displayed the most at this tournament. We said that whoever wins of those players it will not be undeserved. Eventually, it was revealed that Noh ‘Arrow’ Dong-hyeon is the MVP of the NA LCS. For many people, this decision was the right one.
Arrow’s Outstanding Performance
Noh ‘Arrow’ Dong-hyeon currently plays for Phoenix1, but when he joined the team from KT Rolster, nobody believed that he would leave any significant impact in the world of League of Legends eSports competitions. Oh, how they were wrong! In the shadow of the transfer of Kim “Ssumday” Chan-ho from KT Rolster to Team Dignitas, Arrow moved to Phoenix1. There he got the opportunity to play at the NA LCS. As you probably know Arrow is playing as ADC player in his team. The Season 7 of the NA LCS started everyone was convinced that the meta would be very tough for ADC players. However, despite that, Arrow outperformed every other player in almost all aspects. The decision that crowned him as the MVP of the NA LCS seems to be more than logical.
Truly Impressive Numbers
This tournament saw Arrow moving from lane to lane no matter what the matchup was. With some moves that some may describe as disrespectful to his support. Arrow brought a huge advantage to his team. The numbers that Arrow had at this tournament are truly impressive. During this tournament, Arrow had the second most kills of all players while he had the smaller number of deaths of all full-time players. Besides that, Arrow was also the best of all players when it comes to the damage that he did during the match. His team fight abilities are also something that made him the MVP of this tournament. His great accuracy of the skillshot, his shooting abilities while moving and imposing damage at all moments were just some of the reasons why Arrow became the MVP of the NA LCS.
As we have said in our first article about this topic, or rather the potential MVPs of the NA LCS, the MVP award is very important for the players, and on many occasions, it is one of the most competitive competitions of the tournament. This edition of NA LCS had a lot of amazing candidates among which were Bjergsen, Ssumday, Hauntzer and several others. However Arrow was truly the most impressive player of the entire tournament. He was the reason why Phoenix1 managed to avoid the promotion tournament. They were able to stay in the LCS all the way until the semi-finals. In the beginning, we have mentioned that Arrow was overshadowed on several occasions this season. However, that will not be happening anymore as he has proven everyone his worth.
