Bow down to the First Blood King. After an impressive 2020 LEC Spring Split, G2 Esports’ Marcin “Jankos” Jankowski has won his second MVP award in a row.

The 24-year-old League of Legends jungler had another great season to add to his list, leading all LEC players with 96 kills. He also led all European junglers in assists, KDA, first-blood percentage, the average gold difference at 10 minutes, and average damage to champions per minute.

Jankos stands as the one player on the team that stayed consistent with G2. Whenever his teammates would stumble during games, he would show up big with some perfectly timed ganks and roams to help them stay even. Because of his great performances, he ended up winning seven Player of the Game awards throughout the spring. He has been one of the best junglers in Europe ever since his days on his former team Roccat. G2 saw the fire in his plays and picked him up for their roster after the former duo Korean jungle and top laner left their team.

One player, however, that could have taken the award from under his nose was fellow teammate, Luka “Perkz” Perković, who had a great return to the mid lane after spending a season as the team’s starting AD carry. Perkz was extremely close to securing the MVP himself, but Jankos won it in the end after a wonderful season. The 21-year-old phenom had the third-most kills and the third-highest average damage to champion per minute in the LEC. Perkz showed that no matter what lane he was in, he could carry his team to victory.

The current iteration of G2 has been one of the best with Caps stepping up at the ADC role and Perkz resuming his online kingdom. These boys seem to be targeting the World Championship once again with no one in sight to stop them. Jankos is getting close to Perkz level as one of the greatest of all time players as jungler. He has always filled in the shoes of whatever meta he has been in with his jungle picks. He never turned away from a carry or tank pick if his team needed that. He is one of the best players to grace LEC.

Now, Jankos and Perkz will both try to take down Fnatic once more to take home their seventh European title since 2013. You can catch all the action on the LEC’s official Twitch channel or the LoL Esports YouTube channel.
