After The Shotcaller reported that Bwipo wouldn’t be eligible for the EU LCS Sumer Split 2018 Rookie of the Split award, discussion amongst the community sparked on whether this was deserved. Lots of fans disagreed with this decision.
In order to honor his performance over the Spring and Summer Split, Riot Games have decided to introduce a new award specifically for Bwipo’s trophy cabinet: The EU LCS Most Outstanding Rookie of 2018-Award.
Incredibly proud of the EU LCS 'Fan Favourites' and so happy that so many of you voted.

When The Shotcaller discussed the matter of not receiving a Rookie of the Split-Award with Bwipo after Fnatic’s game against Misfits, he said the following:
“I don’t think it would’ve been fair to the other Rookies if there would’ve been a Rookie of the Split Award in Summer, with me playing MSI. Yeah, it would’ve been nice to get an individual award, but it’s okay. I get why they didn’t put me there.”
