They call Shiyu “Mlxg” Liu his tag because it’s an acronym for Ma La Xiang Guo - a spicy hot pot. This jungler has had a red hot career lately, which makes it an appropriate title. Mlxg has been jungling for Royal Never Give Up since the summer of 2015, appearing at a multitude of domestic events as well as IEM Katowice.
This will be Mlxg’s first World Championship, but if his champion choice is any indication, he’s more than ready for the challenge of unexplored territory. Even when he’s playing meta-friendly picks, he veers towards aggressive choices like Graves and Elise. RNG’s jungler may be one of the lesser known members of the squad, but this Worlds Mlxg will be making sure that the audience remembers him.
