Worlds always bring the best players to a stage for the entertainment of the public as well as finding the owner of the throne League of Legends world, and 2020 is no different (except Lee “Faker” Sang-hyeok has to stay at home and the audience is absent except for the Finals).
And though there are still players with extensive international experience and amazing achievements – like Hung “Karsa” Hao-Hsuan, Rasmus “Caps” Winther, Park “Ruler” Jae-hyuk, etc. Suning’s Vietnamese jungler, Le “SofM“Quang Duy, up to now, is the most influential figure in this event, in the first time he attended personally.
SofM is in a stormy victory. From the beginning, people have been extremely interested in Jungler who possesses these unique creative styles, especially his tank style, such as the Knight’s Oath combo and the Taming Armor. Linh for Lee Sin. But digging into a specific detail will not be able to fully generalize what he has been and is affecting the meta of both LPL and Worlds.
Fight in the fog? That’s not Suning
Looking at the bigger picture, SofM is making waves with her superhuman vision control by popularizing and perfecting an accessory swapping method to “abuse” cooldowns from stage. Summer 2019. Basically, SofM will switch back and forth between the Tribute Eye and the Sweeper each time he returns to the Ancient Stone Platform, taking advantage of the scanner’s lower cooldown, which is only half that of the Trash Eye. Nest.
By doing so, he can plug in twice as many wards as the other Junglers, or a third, in just one Scanner swap. Even while in the pool of blood but wants to keep the Eye of the Totem, he switches to the Scanner and stays there for 10 seconds, gaining an additional free eye when returning to the map. He did it very well.
Riot has since removed this mechanic, partly because of SofM, and the rest because the gameplay became prevalent later in the high Elos as well as in the professional arena, and is beneficial. Its yield is too great. However, it is still a popular strategy early in the game, with Junglers often placing an early vision control area for defense, and then immediately turning back to Sweepers in order to take out the range. look at the enemy, or ensure an early gank in silence.
While you can no longer take advantage of Accessory swaps to eat cooldowns, it’s clear that swapping is still important in certain situations.
Strangely, even though this was a tactic that had been popular for more than a year, none of the “apprentices” could pass the master’s eye. SofM has the second highest stakes per minute in the group stage, next to him on that list of only support players. A lot of people have noticed SofM’s incredible vision control in the past, but it’s clear his efforts in vision delivery / suppression have been of great help to Suning’s success.
SofM’s vision stats in the first leg of Group A against Team Liquid
In the quarter-final series against JDG, SofM overcame opponent’s Jungler, Seo “Kanavi” Jin-hyeok, 77 points of vision in the first defeat and then 75, 98 and 18 in three games of surname. Furthermore, he is also the player with the highest vision score in all 4 games, higher than both the Support players of the 2 teams.
Out of his influence on the map with his vision control, SofM inspired Mads “Broxah” Brock-Pedersen to copy how Lee Sin’s resilient build, and made Karsa think of the real Jarvan IV. the is an effective choice. He really turned the “herbivore meta” into the truth, as the jungler was often separated from the road zone developments and was almost “alone on the island” in order to increase his stats. your soldiers.
SofM took first place in minions per minute on the Jungler list and second in minion stats at 10th minute. He even surpassed 100 min against the enemy jungler in one of his games. .
In addition, SofM also guarantees the team’s dragon-eaten stats. The number of Dragons he has reaped is twice as many as he missed (Stats up to the end of the Quarterfinals), 34 vs. 17. He seems to be constantly roaming the map for the sole purpose of this one. : Find out something that can farm, jungle monster, Dragon, or some eye …
