Ning – the most “aggressive” jungler
During his peak form, Ning was considered one of the best junglers in the LPL. Not to mention, with the service of 1 TheShy who is always ready to rush forward, Ning’s “aggressive” gameplay is even more useful for martial arts. The pinnacle of Ning and also of TheShy as well as Invictus Gaming was the 2018 World Championship – where he, “Top God” and the whole IG squad scared the world.
But Ning is also the fastest jungler on the list, losing perhaps only to… Tian. Ning’s last success was the 2019 LPL Spring Championship right after that and… over. He is no longer a player sought by many big teams, Ning has become an “excess person” because of his declining performance, and is also suspected of being the source of IG’s internal instability when he is no longer in harmony with TheShy – Rookie . Ranked is not much better and when Ning left IG, even fans of this team advised him to consider retirement.
Ning has a “tiger” jungle path, not afraid of collisions, but he is also one of the Worlds champions that drops the fastest form
Tian – Dedicate everything to the championship and then died
At the time when Tian was at his peak – Worlds 2019, the whole world admired the jungle ability of “Tieu Thien”. Even though the team had “the one who always tries hard every game” Doinb, or at that time, Lwx and Crisp played very well, but it was Tian who won FMVP – the best player in the finals of Worlds 2019. But, faster than Ning, Tian’s performance after Worlds 2019 plummeted to the bottom. The culmination was that FunPlus Phoenix went empty-handed for 2 consecutive seasons 2020-2021, lost tickets to Worlds 2020, becoming the first LPL team to lose 4 second leg matches in the first round of Worlds (2021) and then bitterly eliminated.
It can be said that because of injury, Tian has had a very bad record in the 2020 and 2021 seasons, but his decline in performance is undisputed. Recently, Tian and the new team Top Esports won the Demacia Cup – the tournament before the new 2022 season and he is FMVP again. Surely LPL fans expect Tian to regain his form and be able to win glory with TES in the new season.
Tian’s form dropped due to injury and just had a disappointing season with FPX in 2021
Canyon – the strongest and most stable champion
Out of the four Worlds champions on this list, the top one in terms of stability and talent is Canyon. The jungler of DWG KIA, in the 2021 season, plays no less than himself in the 2020 season when he and DK won the championship. Still playing creative, mutant but no less sure, Canyon made a huge contribution to DK’s 2 LCK championships in 2021, as well as bringing this team to the finals of the 2 biggest tournaments in League of Legends – MSI 2021 and Worlds 2021.
But unfortunately for Canyon and DK when their opponents studied them too carefully as well as the whole DK team has fatal weaknesses, leaving them empty-handed in both international tournaments in the 2021 season. However, in In the 2022 season, Canyon is still expected to join ShowMaker, along with new teammates, to continue to reach the heights and help the LCK to dominate the world League of Legends again.
Canyon still maintains its innovative and mutant style and play style after winning the World Championship
Jiejie – “Silent Hero”
In the achievements of EDward Gaming, many mentions of “Arrow” Viper, referring to “the one who has collected all the titles in his career” Meiko, or “playmaker” Scout, “Avengers” Flandre. But there is one name that has also contributed a lot to EDG’s achievements, which is Jiejie – a player who can be considered extremely quiet.
Compared to the players above, Jiejie is similar to Ning and Tian in that he also won in his first World Championship. But Jiejie is not “aggressive” like Ning, nor is he the best in the final like Tian. Jiejie’s strong point is that he can fight for his teammates, putting the team’s victory first.

At the moment, the jungle position is still an extremely important position to ensure the gameplay is smooth and coherent. The names above, except Ning, will continue to compete in the new season. And most likely, it is their performance that will determine the achievements of the team they are joining, not only in the domestic tournament but also in the international arena.
