Misfits Gaming’s Shlatan has been officially crowned as the Rookie of the 2022 LEC Spring Split, league officials formally announced on social media this week.
Shlatan has shined as one of the more impressive esports players on the LEC circuit this spring and his performance has received one of the highest honors.
Misfits Gaming officially finished third in the regular season with a 12-6 score, falling short of Rogue by just two wins in a competition between the top esports teams in the world.
Another impressive showing came from Vetheor, who claimed 10 MVP awards during the regular season, but it didn’t seem to be enough to beat out Shlatan for the honors.
Social media has been one marketing tool that league officials have used to market the LEC series, and their players and teams, as well as Esports SEO and traditional marketing, which has boosted visibility of matches and competitions.
