The LPL regional finals took place earlier this month and during the event, we saw just how much jungle pressure can influence a game. The former Griffin jungler had a stand-out performance and popped off, earning LNG a berth at this year's 2021 World Championship.
The choice was clear for the League of Legends player of the month for September. LNG had a breakout performance thanks to their jungler Lee “Tarzan” Seung-Yong. Tarzan earned himself 4 MVP awards throughout the regional qualifiers, so who else to pick than him, right?

Who is LNG Tarzan?
Lee “Tarzan” Seung-Yong started his career in Korea where he became known as an insane jungler on the young Griffin team. In 2019, along with mid laner Chovy and bot laner Viper, the team qualified for the 2019 World Championship in Europe. The team ended up facing iG in the Quarterfinals and lost.

Amidst coaching and management controversies, Griffin disbanded and Tarzan found a new home in the LPL with LNG. In his first season in China, Tarzan struggled to find his footing, LNG ending in 16th and 13th place in the Spring and Summer split. They improved on those results in 2021 and have made it to the World Championship in Iceland.
Player of the Month Stats
LNG finished in eighth place and made it into the LPL playoffs where they went on a tear taking out Suning and Top Esports, as well as the MSI champions RNG. They faltered against FunPlus Phoenix, but their run was good enough for a berth at the LPL Regional Qualifiers where they managed to get second place and thus qualified as the fourth seed of the LPL.
