MSI 2023 is over, and the teams have gone back to their respective regions. JDG has taken home the trophy with mid laner Zhuo "knight" Ding taking home the big finals MVP prize as well. 

But with there only being an MVP for the finals, some fans think that Riot should switch things up and add in a tournament MVP as well. 

MSI 2023: Fans Want Tournament MVP

MSI 2023 is not just a one-day and one match tournament. It's a one-month-long endeavour where teams and players fight day-in and day-out to make it as far as possible on the international stage and showcase their talent. 

This year's MSI even held a special undertone for both Chinese and Korean teams, with the Asian Games coming up in the fall and rosters still not having been completed yet.

The LPL's first seed, JDG, managed to win it all in dominant fashion, beating multiple hard opponents along the way. In the finals they met their long-time rivals BLG and managed a 3-1 win, with mid laner Knight earning himself an MVP award for his performance. 

This has some fans wondering though why there is no award for an overall tournament MVP. There were a lot of meaningful games played with players stepping up, so it would make sense to also have an MVP for overall tournament performance. 

Two MVP awards could be too much, so the Finals MVP might have to be removed if Riot were to introduce a Tournament MVP, but it is a decent idea. Now, how do we measure the MVP though? Most valuable overall, or most valuable to a team? Those are key things to think about when deciding on who to name the Most Valuable Player.
