But it was a relatively new talent - promising rookie "jojopyun" - who topped the standings and scooped $12,000 in prize money as well as 50 points.

In his debut campaign, it is a big achievement for "jojpyun" who continues to make waves in the League of Legends North American circuit and starred in the LCS Lock In earlier this season.

There will be another five Champions Queue splits taking place in 2022 with two Spring editions remaining and three scheduled for the summer with greater prizes to come for the individual talents.

"Jojopyun" has been an integral part of the Evil Geniuses team competing in the LCS Spring Split this season, helping them to a 5-6 record with three weeks remaining in the event.

Regarding the Champions Queue and his rookie player's success, Evil Geniuses head coach Peter Dun wrote on Twitter: "Thank you Riot Games for helping to incentivize our players to grind solo queue through CQ and paying them a performance bonus to do so.

"Also good job to Kaori and Srtty for grinding so hard this split to maintain such high WR (both top three in their roles) over so many games."
