The first day of the League of Legends World Championship (Worlds 2021) featured a strong Play-In performance from Jesper “Zven” Svenningsen and Cloud9.

Cloud9 Zven was one of the many AD carries that drafted Miss Fortune and found success with her. In their final clash against DetonatioN FocusMe, the C9 player grabbed a double kill to help secure their first win of the tournament.

While Miss Fortune was already making rounds in ranked matches before Worlds, her inclusion in every Play-In match so far further proves her viability as a bot lane champion.

Cloud9 Zven elaborated on why MF was such a catch on the first day of Worlds.

“It’s meta now because they nerfed Aphelios, Varus, and Hail of Blades,” said Cloud9 Zven. “All the things that MF doesn’t use have been nerfed so she just naturally rose to priority.”

Zven also mentioned that she’s an easy champion to play, making her a priority pick during the Play-In stage.

“For me, it’s a comfort pick. I have a really good record on her and my teammates like playing with it so it’s a good pick for us too,” said Cloud9 Zven.

Looking ahead, he predicts that the MF pick will become less popular during the group stage with teams learning how to play against it.

Amumu is the perfect support champion for Miss Fortune

Amumu is another rising champion at the Worlds 2021 Play-In stage because of his recent buffs.

Now fitting in the support role with better health and armor stats and a two-charge Bandage Toss, Amumu provides strong crowd control that complements Miss Fortune’s damage output.

The MF-Amumu duo brings back the classic wombo-combo of Curse of the Sad Mummy and Bullet Time. Cloud9 Zven added that MF works well with other support champions.

“Amumu makes her much better, but she’s also really fine with either Leona, Rakan, or anything that has CC,” said Zven.

Cloud9 will face Beyond Gaming today at 11 p.m. GMT+8.
