Which League of Legends pros performed the best and who performed the worst in today’s LEC matches?

The first day of the Week 7 matches for the LEC is in the books, with some surprising outcomes. Fnatic took down Schalke FC 04, ExceL somehow beat SK Gaming, and Splyce won a closely contested game over Origen. With only a few weeks of League of Legends to play, these close wins and losses could be the difference between victory and defeat.

The question is, then, which players performed best in today’s action, and which performed worst? Here are our three most valuable players and least valuable players from today’s action.

LEC Week 7 MVPs

Joran “Special” Scheffer (ExceL)
I’ve been quite vocal that the best move ExceL made all year was subbing out Exile, and Special just continues to prove me right. Today, he styled on Pirean in the mid lane, getting several kills in lane, and then carrying fights in the mid to late game. He ended with a seven of his team’s 16 kills, and only one death.

Lucas “Saken” Fayard (Vitality)
I wouldn’t say that anyone hard-carried in the Vitality game, but I think a special shoutout needs to be given to Saken, who performed exceptionally in his first LEC game, subbing in for Jiizuke. Laning against Febiven, much less winning, is a monumental task and one the young mid should feel proud of. His 4/2/2 scoreline was punctuated by surviving a 2v1 in the bot lane long enough for his team to turn the fight around, and eventually use that momentum to propel them to victory.

Marcin “Jankos” Jankowski (G2)
It’s not surprising that G2 dominated Rogue, but we have to recognize their jungler, who absolutely schooled the opposition and dominated the early game. Let this be a lesson to all other LEC teams: don’t give Jankos the best jungler in the game.
