Assistance is one of the least economical positions in a team, but it is the one that does the most things in a team. Usually, an excellent assistant not only needs to create a good development environment for his own AD, but also needs to spend more time to do vision, line up vision, record each other’s Summoner skills, to effectively walk and support, even depending on the hero chosen, sometimes it also needs to undertake the responsibility of opening a regiment and fighting back. The experienced assistant players are the “brains” of the team, so they should have the overall command power.
Today, let’s see how the assistants in the top four teams of the LPL Spring Match affect the team.
JDG Team: Underestimated quality support! Lvmao
In the 2017 LPL Summer Match, Lvmao first appeared on the LPL stage as the first assistant of JDG team. Meanwhile, in that summer’s competition, there were players like Doinb, Clid and Loken on the team. But in fact, that summer game was also the first time that JDG team appeared on the LPL stage. Despite having top players, they did not find their own playing methods and systems, and later failed to qualify for the playoffs because of the lack of points.
However, with the arrival of the 8th season and the transfer of Doinb, JDG has two key figures, toothpaste and Zoom, and Lvmao has also taken over the responsibility of command this year. But to talk about the biggest change between Lvmao and JDG, we should start with the Red Rice coach joining JDG. After Red Rice joined the JDG team, Lvmao changed a lot in the heroic pool. From a purely protective assistant player, it has gradually become a versatile player. Even from the hero McCrazy, we can know that Lvmao is also a master of soul chicken soup, often in the adverse wind to stabilize the mentality of the players, and find the best time to counter-attack.
JDG has made great progress in the whole S8 season, from the top eight in spring to the top eight in summer. Although EDG lost its qualification for the global finals in the S-8 selection, it won the championship with a 2-1 victory over the TOP team in that year’s National E-Sports Competition.
This season, Lvmao and Red Rice can be said to be the biggest contributors to the recovery of Imp status. At the same time, this season, Lvmao has also begun to show a strong ability to walk and rhythm, especially his ability to create opportunities is one of the key to JDG’s victory over WE and RNG.
Judging from his hero pool, if only by relying on his most frequently used aids to target him, it may be a big deal. Because Lvmao plays a key role in supporting the game is often unexpected, and will not be used frequently in the game. Because he knows that only in this way can we achieve the best results in the key competitions. For example, very impressive barrels and scarecrows are very strong rhythm drivers.
FPX Team: Don’t think he’s only protective! Crisp
In the FPX team system, with Doinb and Xiaotian rhythm-driven ability is very strong after the combination of midfielders. Crisp’s more mission is to protect LWX’s normal development, and when the FPX team needs a double road to stand out, it can have certain equipment to support this battle.
So Crisp has been using protection and counter-attack support more often this season. However, in fact, throughout Crisp’s career, Crisp also prefers protective assistance in most cases.
But if you think Crisp is an excellent protective aid, you’re wrong. The FPX team has a very high support capability this season, and Crisp plays a very important role. Not only does he often swim to the middle of the road, but he even appears on the road somehow. It is Crisp’s excellent overall outlook and roaming ability that makes FPX’s overall rhythm very fast.
Judging from the utilization rate of heroes in his career, it is also true that some heroes are more capable of fighting back and protecting. However, who stipulates that protective auxiliary heroes can not walk and take rhythm? “Fire prevention, burglary prevention, green pine prevention”, when FPX goes down to assist Miss, I am afraid it is a big rhythm.
TOP Team: King of KDA in the Auxiliary Players! Ben
There’s a very interesting thing about Ben players. At that time, Ben and world champion assistant Baolan were both young trainers of IG team. But then, because of some contradictions between WE and Theshy, the IG team eventually replaced the Ben player with the Theshy player. Although many people think the IG team has made a big profit in this trade, in fact, the year when the WE team reached the global finals in the S7 season, the double Road formed by Ben and his uncle was also the key to WE’s proud achievements in that year.
Ben is also a very good assistant player with partial protection, and his greatest feature is very stable. This season, the TOP team ushered in a two-way combination of Ben and Loken. Although it is the first time to partner, because both of them are fairly stable professional players, it can be said that they are in line with each other. And quickly adapted to the TOP team system, running-in is also very good.
Like the FPX team, the TOP team also has a very good upper midfield, so to some extent, it has shared the pressure of the double road. For the two-way TOP team, it is also only necessary to develop steadily, in the group battle can play output matching with the development time is enough.
Ben is probably the best protective player of all protective aids, especially at Tam this season, who often protects his teammates at critical moments. Judging from his hero utilization rate, Tam, Windwoman and Gario are all heroes with quite exaggerated winning rate. Especially the wind girl, came to 13 games 100% victory rate. Fortunately, in this version, Software Auxiliaries are not particularly strong, but more need some assistant heroes with strong rhythm ability. Besides being very protective, Ben is also the highest assistant player in KDA so far this season, and more interestingly, Loken is also the highest ADC player in KDA. Such a combination can be said to be stable enough to let people “finger”.
IG Team: World Champion Assistant! Sapphire blue
While many people have noticed the growth of JKL this season, few have noticed the silent efforts of Baolan behind it. As a world champion, Baolan was once questioned. But in fact, Baolan is a very sensitive and self-esteemed player. Why can other players of IG team show up in the group battle? Among them, Baolan blocked too many skills for teammates. If we want to choose the most sacrificed player in IG team, it must be Baolan.
But interestingly, the IG team’s two-way road is very different in style. JKL likes to be fierce, while Baolan likes to be steady. But this does not affect the dual road. As the assistant king of the regular season this season, it is also the third consecutive year that Baolan won the title in the spring.
From the current situation of IG, Baolan is more responsible for the development of JKL. After all, many rhythmic things are enough for brothers to do. But in fact, why did Baolan choose Luo as its champion skin? Because in most of his supporting hero performances, Lo is probably the best one he uses, and the 90.3% victory rate in 31 games can be said to be quite horrible. So when you think that Baolan is just a protective aid, he will come and tell you that there is no battle that IG can’t fight.
As a world champion assistant, Baolan must be under great pressure. In addition, the excellent performance of other IG team players, to a certain extent, concealed the brilliance of Baolan. But that’s helping, burning yourself and illuminating others.
