Riot Games

Robert ‘Blaber’ Huang has won his second LCS MVP title in three seasons, taking home the honors in LCS Spring 2021. The Cloud9 jungler beat out Team Liquid’s Barney ‘Alphari’ Morris in the two-horse race.

Cloud9’s young jungle talent Blaber has taken home yet another MVP title in LCS Spring 2021.

Widely-acclaimed to be NA’s brightest hope for the future, the Cloud9 jungler managed to rack up 109 votes, beating Liquid top laner Alphari who posted 90 votes.

Blaber has won two LCS MVP awards in three splits as a pro.

“It feels good to win two MVPs in three splits. I am the best jungler right now and I think I have been throughout my career,” he said in the announcement.

“It’s way too early to say that I’m the best jungler NA’s ever had. Xmithie, Svenskeren, they have multiple titles. For me to consider myself to be the best jungler, I’d want to have continued success in NA and internationally too.”

Blaber’s third season in the LCS was arguably his best yet. The jungler was the crux of Cloud9’s squad, setting the tempo with Luka ‘Perkz’ Perkovic, who played a key role in supporting him.

He drew numerous bans in almost every game, including his iconic Olaf, but still managed to style on the league with less-meta picks like Taliyah and Rek’Sai. He had a 5.13 KDA with 72.2% kill participation, and he styled on every other jungler in the league.

Liquid’s Jo ‘CoreJJ’ Yong-in rounded out the Top 3 in the MVP ballot with 22 votes.
