Alarm beat out a lot of tough competition to earn this award. Some of his competition included San Francisco Shock sniper specialist Seonchang “ANS” Lee, and Shanghai Dragon’s Lucio superstar Jae-gon “LeeJaeGon” Lee. However, with consistent numbers that keep him in the top of the flex support role, as well as a solid impact on the dominant Fusion team, this award certainly went to the right player.
