Most Improved: Insanity

Unquestionably Insanity had one of the strongest rookie splits of anyone this summer and really made fans question why the team was so insistent on sticking with Eika for so long.

Most Consistent: Nisqy

Nisqy was a solid, though not superb, contributor for Cloud9 all year. Only once did he post a below-average week and has been graded 81.0 or better in all but two weeks.

Most Efficient: Insanity

One of the most impressive things about Insanity to me is, while his gold per minute and gold shares are around the average for mids, his damage per minute and damage shares are off the charts. He’s the only mid laner with a damage share over 30%, which shows just how much he had to carry that struggling Immortals lineup.

Best Laner: Jensen

Very few players managed the early game in the mid lane better than Jensen, which is why he had almost a 350 experience and 269 gold leads at 15 minutes.

Worst Laner: Insanity

The one major flaw in his game, Insanity actually had one of the largest gold and experience deficits on average. I don’t really see this as an issue, since he’s still young and it’s his first split laning against LCS players. Once he irons out the lane, he’ll be a player to watch.

Most Mistake-Prone: Ry0ma

A narrow runner-up for worst laner, Ry0ma did shine in one category: most unforced deaths on the year by a mid laner with 22.

Biggest Disappointment: Froggen

While everyone is laughing at Dignitas for playing Froggen given his poor Week 2 and Week 3 performances, I’d like to remind you that he was a very good mid laner last split, ending with a grade of 88.6 and started off the season hot with an 83.2 grade in Week 1. If there is a smart team out there that can pick him up, he could be the steal of the offseason.
