6. Mitchell “Destiny” Shaw (Immortals)

I thought Destiny was going to be a big part of the strong Origen roster that could have challenged for the LEC’s top spots last year. Paired with Upset, I believed the young Oceania product could finally showcase his elite level of play.

Of course, that never materialized, as Origen was one of the bigger letdowns of 2020 and Destiny was eventually relegated from the starting lineup. Now, he’s moved over to Immortals, reunited with his former laning partner from Chiefs Esports Club in Raes.

Make no mistake, though, Destiny was not good during his time playing in the LEC. His -207.3 MAGXD @ 15 is third-worst among all LCS supports. His estimated damage differential was -1.4, which is one of the lowest in the league as well. The same goes for his low gold per minute (215) and adjusted KDA (1.88).

But the biggest issue, to me, is that in 2020 Destiny showed one of the weakest champion pools in among the supports. In 39 games last year, he played Nautilus 17 times, nearly half of his games on one champion. He only played nine unique champions, the lowest of all supports entering the 2021 LCS as starters.

Immortals are hoping that Destiny can be a bounce-back candidate this year, now reunited with his OCE comrade in Raes. And while Raes is a great ADC, it’s concerning that Destiny couldn’t find success last year with a far better EU ADC in Upset.
