The 10 players with the highest votes for the Honda Most Valuable Player Award in the 2020 League of Legends Championship Series Spring Split have been revealed. Riot Games announced the Honda MVP finalists Friday, April 10 at 2pm PT.
As expected, the 1st place, 17-1 Cloud9 is well represented in the MVP voting. Every starting player on the C9 roster sans Top Laner Eric "Licorice" Ritchie is in the running for the award. Cloud9's Head Coach Bok "Reapered" Han-gyu also won Coach of the Split in a landslide vote.
Evil Geniuses' Mid Laner Daniele "Jiizuke" di Mauro also finished in the top 10. EG finished the Spring Split in 2nd place, and Jiizuke also made the 2nd All-Pro Team. 3rd seed 100 Thieves relied heavily on the performance of Top Laner Kim "Ssumday" Chan-ho, who rightfully earned his spot as a finalist for the MVP. FlyQuest Mid Laner Tristan "PowerOfEvil" Schrage, who helped turn the team around this spring after missing the post-season last summer rounds out the finalists of the top 4 teams.
TSM qualified for the 2020 LCS Spring Playoffs as the 5th seed in large part due to the performances of Top Laner Sergen "Broken Blade" Çelik and Mid Laner Søren "Bjergsen" Bjerg, and both solo laners finished in the top 10 MVP voting. The only player to finish in the top 10 in votes for the MVP award without qualifying for the post-season is Dignitas Mid Laner Henrik "Froggen" Hansen. DIG was a game away from qualifying as the 6th seed, but lost the tie-breaker match to Golden Guardians.
The vote totals for the following players will be revealed, along with the winner of the 2020 LCS Spring Split Honda MVP Award, at a later date in the 2020 LCS Spring Playoffs.
