5. Lee “Ignar” Dong-geun (Evil Geniuses)

I’ve been a big fan of Ignar’s for a while, at times last year rating him as one of the best supports in North America. In terms of roaming and playmaking, I still firmly believe that to be the case, but in looking at some numbers over the offseason I think it’s fair to dial back expectations slightly.

The first big red flag for Ignar is that he actually tends to do less damage on his champions than expected. His -13.2 EDD is surprising for a playmaking support, but it also demonstrates that the champion picks are primarily what puts him in a good position to make plays.

In addition, while the roaming style is good for enabling his teammates, it tends to hurt him in the early game. With a -57.3 MAGXD @ 15, Ignar is graded as a below-average laner.

Again, this number is low because he tended to sacrifice lane time in favor of roaming (which I can’t blame him for considering he was paired with WildTurtle). However, you would still like to see these roams pay off for Ignar, especially when he’s on champions who can perform well in lane.

Other than those two issues, though, Ignar has proven that he’s among the best supports in the LCS. His 2.81 aKDA and 239 GPM are both well above average for supports. He also proved to have one of the more diverse champion pools last year, playing 17 unique supports and grading as elite when on Rakan (no surprise there).
