Strong support play results in series victory
May 20, 2018
Ming earned a 3/2/30 KDA throughout RNG's 3-1 series victory in the MSI Finals.
ANALYSIS
Playing exclusively passive support champions instead of playmakers, Ming did not have a flashy performance against Kingzone DragonX, but he had a strong performance nonetheless. Although he was relegated to shield duty on Janna and Morgana, he was able to impose a strong presence throughout the series, primarily through his ability to empower Uzi while simultaneously gaining vision control. Largely focusing on his AD carry, he was able to keep Uzi alive and facilitate the stellar performance. Keeping his carries safe in teamfights throughout the series, his play was critical to RNG's 3-1 victory over KZ, allowing the team to claim the Mid-Season Invitational title.

Picks up play onDay 3
May 14, 2018
Ming's Rakan finished with a 3/2/13 KDA in Royal Never Give Up's win against Fnatic on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Ming struggled to do much on Rakan in RNG's matchup against Team Liquid earlier in the day but got redemption against Fnatic. Instead of dying early in the laning phase, Ming was scoring kills and assists and helping Uzi build a small lead. After they won the laning phase, Ming and Uzi were able to rotate around the map helping RNG win teamfights, earning 100 percent kill participation.
All downhill after giving up first blood
May 14, 2018
Ming finished with a 0/6/7 KDA on Rakan in Royal Never Give Up's loss to Team Liquid on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Ming was a magnet for Olleh's Morgana as he got hit by nearly every Dark Binding thrown at him during the laning phase. He wasn't able to threaten any kind of engage and was killed if he tried to. The teamfighting throughout the rest of the game wasn't any better as his 100 percent kill participation came with a lot of deaths. RNG struggled to find good engages on TL as it slowly died to split push pressure.

ANALYSIS
Although Ming didn't have any very impressive plays in his team's series victory over Fnatic, he adhered to the meta and easily showed his team's domination in the process. Picking Soraka in every victory, he was able to quickly build ardent and bring Uzi the buffs he needed to dominate. Although the role of a support is not often glamours, Ming's excellent play allowed his team to take a convincing 3-1 series victory and push themselves to a place in the Semifinals of the 2017 World Championship.
Allows Uzi to carry
October 9, 2017

Strong Alistar performance
September 2, 2017
Ming finished RNG's 2-3 loss to EDG with a 5/10/47 combined KDA.
ANALYSIS

Does enough to get the win
August 26, 2017
Ming posted a 0/15/32 KDA in RNG's 3-2 win over WE in the semifinals of the LPL Summer Playoffs.
ANALYSIS
Ming wasn't necessarily lighting things up as a support in this series, but he was doing more than enough to help his team secure the win. His Thresh in Game 2 landed some nice and consistent hooks to set up his teammates for the win, while his Braum blocked plenty of damage in Game 4. He went with Karma in the final game of the series, which was strong enough to net his team the win. His shields and speed ups no doubt gave RNG a slight edge in the final teamfight they used to secure the series victory. His lack of presence on the playmaking champions of Rakan and Alistar was a bit rough to watch, however. Coming up strong on those champions will only make his team that much stronger going into the grand finals against EDward Gaming.
Only one death in nearly perfect series
August 18, 2017

He was involved in less than 50 percent of RNG's kills, finishing with the fourth-highest assist total on the team. Despite the low assist and kill participation, Ming did enough to help RNG close out the sweep.
